Mandarin Oriental Jumeira, Dubai
Step inside the Mandarin Oriental Jumeira, Dubai and you are greeted by three wonderful things: the Forest of Lights, a beautiful light installation made up of two rows of trees; the warm, gracious smiles of hotel staff; and the scent of blended lily of the valley, mandarin and wood, a signature fragrance from this esteemed resort group.
This serene ambience extends throughout the hotel, from the elegant bar and restaurant spaces to the capacious guestrooms, which number 256 in total and make for totally sumptuous abodes.
On top of the Mandarin Oriental’s sophisticated stylings, you can also expect mesmerising views of the sea from one side of the hotel – enjoyed from the outdoor terraces, swimming pools and many guestrooms – then skyline vistas from the other. You can while away the hours by devouring Portuguese cuisine at Tasca, sipping cocktails from the pool bar, luxuriating in the spa or trying out the caviar bar, Beluga, which is an experience not to be missed. And as tempting as it is to stay all day long in this heavenly place, the attractions of Dubai are never far from reach, including the beaches, shops and restaurants of Jumeira.
