Dubai: Your Complete Travel Guide to this Land of Excess
If you’ve been dreaming of skiing and suntanning in the same day, drunk on $5k bottles of Cristal, Dubai is your opulent paradise.
Ever imagined opening your eyes to a view of one of the most marvelous skylines in the world, to toss around the bed and roll over the other side to see Burj Al Arab, a lavish building built on an a small man-made island? Well, your dreams can become a languid reality here since you’ll be surrounded by Tumblr-like views every direction you turn.
The Oberoi Hotel is a contemporary luxury hotel and its most striking feature is that it overlooks the iconic Burj Khalifa. Imagine coming to your hotel room at night, with tired feet and a bunch of paper bags filled to the brim with clothes and adornments, and dipping your feet in a warm bath inside your bathroom with a large window that overlooks the tallest building on Earth. That’s a dream that will definitely come true at the Oberoi Hotel.
The hotel is near Sheikh Zayed Road (or the road with the best shopping outlets, as the locals call it), making it even easier for you to reach various malls. There are 252 rooms in the hotel, all having floor-to-ceiling windows that give you an enthralling view of the Dubai skyline.
Besides being a hotel of an eclectic style, it is also the home for the restaurant Nine7One. Nine7One offers cuisines ranging from traditional Arabic, Arabic-Western fusion to Indian and Mediterranean. You can have all your crazy-cuisine cravings fulfilled here.
The Oberoi Hotel also offers a spa that has various relaxing Thai massages, a sauna and a mud bath. There are also holistic therapies drawn from Ayurveda in India, along with internationally influenced therapies that are available in their spa.
Yup, Dubai puts the metro in metropolis.
