Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Beach
Located in the heart of Dubai Marina on the desirable Golden Mile in Jumeirah beach, the Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Beach enjoys breathtaking views over the clear waters of the Arabian Gulf and the Dubai skyline. The hotel opened in 2000 and has since become a popular retreat for couples and families travelling to the United Arab Emirates, due to its superior location and easy access to nearby attractions, such as the famous shopping destination, ‘The Walk’ and Montgomerie Golf Clubs.
You don’t have to venture far to experience world-class luxury and service. The property boasts a staggering 12 award-winning restaurants and bars, to suit a range of tastes. For that special occasion, dine on Italian cuisine in the elegant BiCE restaurant or for a more lively evening, venture into Hilton’s own Latin American steakhouse featuring a weekly Brazillian BBQ and live entertainment.
After a day of exploring Dubai or relaxing on the hotel’s private beach, retire to one of the hotel’s King Panoramic Sea suites offering stunning ocean views, three balconies, a private dining area, a whirlpool bath and exclusive access to the Executive Lounge. Once refreshed following an invigorating treatment at the hotel’s on-site spa, watch the spectacular sunset whilst sipping speciality cocktails on the rooftop Pure Sky Lounge.

Reminiscent of a 16th Century Italian palace, Palazzo Versace Dubai is a neoclassical masterpiece with elegant traces of Arabian architecture, set on the shores of the historic Dubai Creek.

Not only close to Dubai’s best-loved landmarks, but Raffles Dubai is also one of them! This stunning landmark hotel in a distinctive pyramid shape merges Asian style with an Egyptian aesthetic.

The Pool Restaurant and Bar are also an ideal spot to enjoy fresh juice and light meals and spend days lounging by the pool looking out onto the spectacular view.
