Dream big and you never know where your holiday planning will take you. The United Arab Emirates may seem like a whole world away from the cosy shores of the UK, but you would be surprised just how close to home you will feel while perusing the streets of Downtown Dubai. Dubai is a place where cultures collide in a wonderful way. Downtown Dubai in particular is a cosmopolitan atmosphere where east mingles with west between the souks and the sand dunes. A trip to Downtown Dubai in particular, is to visit the single most elegant location in the world. It will leave you with an ever-lasting impression of a culture that is so familiar, yet so deliciously foreign. One thing is for sure: big is beautiful in Dubai. Think Dubai, think style, elegance, class and a whole world of architectural innovation that you never thought possible. This is the home of the largest building in the world, the out-of-this-world Burj Khalifa. The largest man made dancing fountain is right outside, while the largest shopping mall in the world awaits just metres away.
Dubai has so many incredible hotels; this is a country that does chic as though it invented style itself. The Address Hotel, Downtown Dubai is one of our all-time favourites for its stunning, unique views and a holiday experience that exceeds its five stars, and then some. From the second you walk through the doors, you feel as though you have entered a grand and regal world of effortless class and sophistication, without the slightest hint of pretentiousness. The hotel staff are perfectly attentive; not overbearing, just genuinely concerned that every second of your stay is delightful. You will be pampered more than you ever have been before, the staff will be one step ahead of you; just as you start to get too hot and go to adjust that parasol, it will already have been done for you.
Bask in the Arabian sunshine around the hotel’s gorgeous infinity pool, which boasts views of the Burj Khalifa. There is ample shade to relax in during the hottest part of the day and hotel staff continuously come round with cold towels and ice creams to cool you down. The Address have really thought of everything. For families, there is a covered children’s pool and a children’s club for 4-12 year olds; for party-goers there is a nightclub on the 62nd floor with floor to ceiling windows offering an uninterrupted view of the Burj Khalifa, and for anyone who wants an ideal base to visit Downtown Dubai; The Address is it! The hotel’s ethos says it all: “to take luxury to exhilarating new heights.” We couldn’t agree more.
