As one of the newest hotels on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah, Dukes Dubai is already a force to be reckoned with.
Having already picked up a number of impressive accolades, including ‘World’s Leading New Hotel’ at the World Travel Awards in December, the British-themed hotel offers a home away from home feel in incredibly luxurious surroundings. With a little help from our travel experts, we explore the very best of what Dukes Dubai has to offer…
Not all luxury hotels offer a family-friendly feel but despite the elegant décor throughout the hotel, Dukes Dubai has a wealth of facilities for adults and children alike to enjoy. An afternoon outdoors would be well spent at the stunning stretch of private beach or floating down the lazy river without a care in the world.
For a spot of indoor fun, the Dukesy Kids Club offers a welcome goodie bag, baby accessory kits, storybooks, delicious healthy snacks and even bedtime treats! There’s also a special nutritious children’s menu at the West 14th Restaurant, meaning all the family can enjoy the delicious delights that Dukes Dubai has to offer.
But the fun doesn’t stop there. The weekly calendar of events includes everything from movie nights on the lawn to ‘Little Chefs’ cooking and decorating classes, perfect for unleashing your little ones’ creative side!
It’s easy to stay pampered at The Dukes; from weekly yoga classes to Toni & Guy hairdressing, it’s possible to feel salon-fresh every day! And we haven’t even started on the plush rooms yet which use a refreshing combination of tasteful grandeur with contemporary chic to create an incredibly comfortable guest experience. For women travelling alone or with friends, consider the Duchess Floor: completely dedicated to female travellers with discretion in mind, the rooms are designed with accents of exclusive Liberty Fabrics.
Destination2 travel specialist Gemma recently paid a visit to Dukes Dubai and was more than impressed by this incredible hotel.
She said: “Dukes Dubai is a true luxury hotel. The moment you walk into the beautiful lobby you are struck by the sight of the huge chandelier and portraits of Dukes lining the walls. The indoor swimming pool on the 14th floor even has twinkling stars at the bottom and floor to ceiling windows offering phenomenal views!”
With a choice of six food and beverage outlets at Dukes Dubai, you’ll be spoiled for choice throughout your stay in Dubai. The flagship restaurant, Great British Restaurant, celebrates classic British cuisine with dishes such as Lancashire hot pot, cottage pie and hearty roast dinners while award-winning West 14th and Khyber offer incredibly delicious, high quality speciality dishes.
For a refined afternoon overlooking the stunning Arabian Gulf, the Champagne and Tea Lounge is open daily for afternoon tea and cocktails in a stylish, intimate setting. Sip on the finest tea choices and marvel over your adventures in the City of Gold. For the gentlemen, head back in time in the Cigar and Whiskey Lounge with interiors featuring plush furnishings, dark woods and Chesterfields.
