Fairmont Dubai

Widely known as the shopping capital of the Middle East and the land of perennial sunshine and pristine beaches, Dubai has captured the imagination of travelers everywhere.

In the heart of this unique destination is Fairmont Dubai. Conveniently located, this luxury hotel in Dubai is just 10 minutes away from the world’s largest shopping centre – The Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa, the tallest man-made structure in the world, and the Dubai Fountain, which shoots water as high as a 50-storey building, as well as being minutes from Dubai’s coastline with a number of popular beaches like Jumeirah beach. A few metro stops from the hotel is Mall of the Emirates – a multi level shopping mall that houses Ski Dubai, the Middle East’s first indoor ski resort and snow park.

The hotel is also directly connected to the metro system and is linked to the convention and exhibition areas of the Dubai World Trade Centre by a covered, air-conditioned bridge.

Recently completing a multi-million dollar lobby renovation, the hotel also boasts natural daylight throughout the majority of its meeting spaces located on the 33rd floor, while 394 guestrooms, suites, and penthouses provide a welcome retreat whether traveling on business, leisure or both.

An array of restaurants and lounges await you from Noire – the Middle East’s only dining in the dark concept, The Exchange Grill, a New York inspired steakhouse to Dokuz, an outdoor rooftop Turkish lounge or Catch, the contemporary American restaurant that serves sophisticated seafood with an energetic dining atmosphere.

Fairmont Dubai also features two of the trendiest night clubs in the city. Cavalli Club by international fashion designer Roberto Cavalli has quickly become one of Dubai’s most elite nightspots, while London Mayfair’s Cirque Le Soir brings a carnival atmosphere and spectacular theatrics.

For the business or leisure traveller seeking tranquility and relaxation, Fairmont Dubai offers The Spa, covering 40,000 square feet of leisure facilities featuring a Health Club and two rooftop swimming pools, providing breathtaking views of sunrise and sunset over an ever-changing Dubai skyline.
