Undoubtedly the PARK HYATT DUBAI claims its top spot, despite new comers such as The Address or The Atlantis Palm. Situated 10 minutes from the international airport and 20 minutes from Burj Khalifah, Park Hyatt Dubai is a private retreat, more like an island within the very busy city of Dubai. The hotel which was opened in 2005 impresses with is lush exotic gardens, stunning pool and top rated SPA. The hotel boasts the largest rooms and suites of any international five star chain in Dubai, all of its rooms being located in low rise buildings which cover a considerable surface of land, just by the Dubai Creek marina area.
Despite its rapid development, the young city of Dubai proves it has matured and the Dubai Creek marina is a testiment to that. While the new Dubai Marina which just opened by the world’s tallest building Burj Khalifah attracts a lot of visitors especially tourists, the older Dubai Creek marina has its own loyal boat lovers and travellers. One would believe the Park Hyatt could have easily lost its charm through the constant flash of new developments, yet the property continues to draw a solid base of loyal customers both business and leisure. The secret behind its success? – impecable services throughout the hotel.
Most of the rooms offer marina views, with flowing views of the Dubai skyline, yet the best views are from the terrace suites. Rooms are large and comfortable, modern and functional. Bathrooms are particularly impressive not only in size but also layout and space – a large classic bathtub, walk in shower with rain shower facilities. All rooms have separate dressing area with generous space for personal items.
