Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, Dubai – Second best hotel in the world?

There are many hotels in the world that can lay claim to being the most luxurious in the world. Hotels on the stunning Indian Ocean islands of The Maldives might lay claim to the title. especially the luxury water villas. However, we think that a hotel that opened in Dubai in  January 2012 called Jumeirah Zabeel Saray might be laying claim to be the second most luxurious hotel in the world after the only 7 star hotel in the world the Burj al Arab

The hotel is located on The Palm. Visible from space The Palm is a man made island in the shape of a palm tree built into the Arabian Sea. With 405 rooms and suites the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray has been built to the highest standards and includes an incredible 8,000sq m spa area.

There will be 8 restaurants at the hotel including the Imperium which has elegant crystal chandeliers and offers a wonderful dining experience.

Words can’t really describe what it is like to stay at the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray so we thought that we would show you some images of the hotel.

There are not many hotels in the world that can boast that they have a bedroom big enough to sleep a large family of  8 adults and 4 children. You might get a villa in Florida that has 4 bedrooms but the quality won’t be anywhere near as good as the lagoon Villa at the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray ! According to the Jumeirah website this is how they describe their Lagoon Villas –

Look out onto a spectacular lagoon style pool amongst tropical landscaping. This four bedroom Lagoon Residence includes 460 square meters floor area, not including sun terraces, open-air entrance with reflection pool, internal reflection pools, floors laid with Turkish marble depicting Ottoman motifs, teak decking area with rain shower offering immediate access to the community lagoon pool.

Selection of a “specialty” room which overlooks the lagoon pool: additional bedroom, children’s play room or workout room. External staircase leading to spacious terrace shaded by teak pergola. Four bedrooms include ensuite bathrooms, elegant living and dining room with parquet flooring, large kitchen with modern appliances, Hamam style bathrooms, maid’s quarters, and secure double garage.

Wireless high speed internet
Unlimited Wild Wadi Waterpark access
Unlimited private beach access
Complimentary limousine transfers to and from Dubai International Airport

Luxury Dining

Imperium, the hotel’s all day dining restaurant, features elegant crystal chandeliers, gilded columns and a terrace offering superb views of the sea. Enjoy a breakfast buffet with live cooking stations serving international and French inspired cuisine, and a la carte brasserie lunch and dinner. The stunning surroundings also make Imperium a grand and elegant setting for special events and weddings.

The Talise Ottoman Spa at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray

At the heart of palatial spa, is an authentic and spectacular Turkish spa and hammam. Throughout the centuries, the hammam was not only a place for bathing; it was a cultural tradition revered as a focal point for relaxing, meeting friends, associates and celebrating special events. Today this timeless tradition continues.

Begin a journey of wellbeing which combines the ancient healing philosophies of the Ottomans with modern-day spa technology and luxury. Marvel at the elaborate interiors, the crafted marble, the mosaics and stunning murals in an atmosphere infused with delicate aromas of the orient. If you haven’t visited a Hammam then you are in for a treat. Be prepared for the massage of your life and more soap than a student launderette!

Dubai as a Stopover

Dubai makes a fantastic stopover holiday destination on your way to a more relaxing beach holiday. We recommend about 3 or 4 nights in Dubai followed by perhaps a holiday in Thailand. Emirates Airlines flies from the UK direct to Dubai and they aslo fly on to other holiday destinations in the Far East and even on to Australia.Dubai makes a fascinating holiday stopover destination because it is a shoppers paradise with huge malls like the Dubai Mall which has every shop imaginable. Other shopping malls include Marina Mall and Mall of the Emirates. With a fantastic choice of hotels, great restaurants, water parks and beaches there is plenty to keep you occupied.

Where are the best places to eat in Dubai?

It is difficult to find a poor restaurant in Dubai. If you are a steak lover, like me, then you will love Legends Steak House at Dubai Crek Golf & Yacht Club which serve mouth watering steaks of superb quality. Grosvenor House has award winning restaurants such as Indego which serves award winning Indian cuisine. If you are a pasta and pizza lover then you will love La Veranda at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel. You will aslo get great views of the Burj Al Arab from the outside terrace of La Veranda restaurant.

Getting around Dubai

The best way to travel around Dubai is by taxis which are cheap and plentiful. You can also use the ever expanding Dubai Metro, which has to be one of the most modern rail systems in the world.
