Dubai Hotels

Dubai hotels provide for some of the most luxurious and welcoming of any found throughout the Middle East. Nicknamed “Gulf Tiger” and “City of Gold”, Dubai is one of the best places on earth to buy gold. Keep in mind that there is a limit on how much gold can be carried out of the city. We’ve scanned Dubai hotels thoroughly to bring you the best, most highly rated accommodations out there, with a focus on penthouses and luxury suites. If you seek luxury or you’re traveling in a group, then these Dubai hotels are geared especially toward you. Dubai is a great place to visit if you enjoy luxury shopping, the beach, bustling nightlife, modern architecture and more. Before we get you to our list of Dubai hotels, let’s take a look at some background information on the city to help you along the way.

Dubai, located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf, is the largest and most populated city in the United Arab Emirates. Established as a fishing village in the early 18th century, Dubai started to take form in 1822, having accumulated a population of around 800 people. Dubai was taken under the United Kingdom’s wing in 1892 following the General Maritime Treaty of 1820 and the 1853 Perpetual Maritime Truce in an area known as the “Pirate Coast”. Prior to the oil industry, pearls were considered one of the biggest commodities in the area. The ruler Maktoum bin Hasher Al Maktoum established Dubai as a free port with no taxation on imports and exports in 1901, making it an appealing destination for trade, especially gold. In 1966, London shipped 4,000,000 ounces of gold to Dubai, and during the 1970s the area continued to grow due to revenues generated from oil and trade. The Gulf War in 1990 caused only a minor set-back to the area’s development, as many foreign trading companies moved in during the 1990s. In June 2001, the Palm Jumeirah,  one of the world’s most extraordinary artificial archipelagos, was completed.

A global city and business hub of the Middle East, Dubai has seen a decline in oil production and has thus moved in the direction of tourism, trade, real estate, aviation and financial services for its industry. The world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, standing at 2,722 feet high, is located in Dubai’s downtown district. The city’s major attractions include Al Fahidi Fort, Business Bay, National Bank of Dubai, The Dubai Fountain, Palm Jumeirah, Dubai Opera, Dubai Media City and Dubai Tennis Stadium. Unlike with most other Middle Eastern cities, alcohol consumption is permitted in Dubai. Keep in mind that it is illegal to drink in the street or in a public place, and that the legal drinking age is 21 years old. While Islamic law prohibits unmarried couples from sharing a hotel room, most luxury hotels have a relaxed policy and allow for opposite, unmarried travelers to room together. It is best to err on the conservative side and to keep your matters as private as possible (this is not Cancun!). Popular foods in Dubai include hummus, shawarma, Labneh, a type of yogurt spread, manakish, which is similar to pizza, falafel and shish taouk, or marinated chicken shish kebab. Jellab is a classic Arabian drink that consists of a grape molasses and rose water blend, sometimes topped with pine nuts and raisins. Now that we have some background information on the city, it’s time to get to Dubai hotels that will help make for an unforgettable UAE experience.

  1. This article and review on penthouses in Dubai caught my eye for a special reason: I live here for much of the year! I know that it can be expensive for everyone in hotels and for living too as villas are not that cheap either. If you are coming to the place for a vacation, getting a penthouse is a wonderful way to enjoy the stay.

    I was surprised at the rates for some of the penthouses, as they actually were less than I expected. For a good 4 or 5 star hotel here, you can pay $200 to $300 or more per night for a rather regular room. I used to stay often in hotels, so I know this from my own experience.

    If you are with a larger party, a penthouse should definitely be a consideration I think. It will make your stay a lot more memorable. There are lots of things to do while in Dubai, and you will want to have a nice place to come back to when you are finished with an action-packed day.

    1. Thank you very much for your insights Dave! Dubai is not an inexpensive stay if you demand luxury, but some diamonds in the rough at reasonable prices can be found as well for sure. The Underwater Suite at Atlantis might just be a must see!

  2. Hi Admin

    I don’t know what else to call you because I didn’t see a name. I just finished reading your post, Best Hotels Dubai – Penthouses. This is an excellent site to me. I was captivated by the all the beautiful pictures.

    I found myself clicking links to see what does that look like! Why are you hiding who you are is there a reason for that?

    You don’t have an About Me page, why?  Trust me Admin you need one.

    Great site really impressed.

    Eric

    1. Hi Eric and thank you for the recommendations! An About Me page is in the works, so please stay tuned. Your comments about the site are much appreciated.

  3. WOW! I love it, Visiting Dubai is number 6 in my Bucket list 🙂
    This are the Royalties Suites, but more option to choose from, not to expensive for sure. Beside the Suites you also describe the amenities and also includes the Restaurant near by.
    This website is so Glamourous, I love it.

  5. I’m loving the penthouses in Dubai!

    Though I most certainly wouldn’t be able to afford most of them, I am surprised to find out that there are still some affordable ones within the $500 range but what fun would that be if we’re going to Dubai. I am curious on Frond A’s pricing though, is there a rough price range to it to give us an idea? Say around $2-3k budget per person, or do you think it’s $5k per person?

    1. Hi Riaz. Great question. Dream Inn – Getaway Villa will be about $973 per night and $93 per person. The post has been updated. Thanks again for stopping by!

  6. Thanks for the penthouses list in Dubai. I have plan to go there on vacation next year, so this list is quite helpful. Although I personally like the setting of Dream Inn apartments, I may choose Kempinski over it. In my city, Kempinski apartment has been famous for giving the best service they can, and I have a personal experience staying there. I will discuss this with my friends. Thanks

  7. Hi there, what more can we ask for right?. We love to travel and always invest a great deal of time planing a good vacations and provably more time looking for the best hotels. It looks like we have no place to look but this article, O don’t think there are a better places to stay in. Thank you for sharing these absolute beautiful hotels with us. You just make me want to go on vacations again.

    Great article I love it.

    1. Thank you so much Urbano! Glad to hear that you liked the information and that you are considering vacations again. Happy travels out there!

  8. Dubai looks like such a great place to go to. Your website is great because it shows so many great and awesome places to go, and the great hotels you can use and go to for them. It gives so many ideas and options for hotels. I love it. I can’t wait to set up my next vacation in a few weeks. The hardest choice now is which one 🙂

  9. Another great list of penthouse!

    Frond A Palm Jumeirah caught my eyes, it is so beautiful. And I am very amazed at the price, it’s very affordable. For such an expensive city, this is so good. I love the city, I do visit every year and I think that I will have to visit. Even my husband liked the place in the photo.

    Thank you for sharing.

    1. Hi Adyns and nice to see you again! So very glad that you and your husband liked the place in the photo and hope to see you again soon 🙂

  10. Hi!  I love the photographs!  They’re gorgeous!  Dubai has always been a dream destination for me as I’m interested in attended some of the horse races there someday!  Perhaps with a stay at the Dream Inn, which looks beautiful in your photo!  It’s hard to imagine these are hotels.  Insanely pretty.  Thanks for the article!

  11. Hi there! Until I found your site, I wasn’t even thinking of places like this. Me and a group of friends are just beginning the idea of going big on our next excursion. I’m intrigued by this possibility. What a memorable difference this could be. But I am curious, can you shed a little more info on the accommodations? More specifically are there multiple sleeping rooms in these penthouses? Are there any occupancy limits? In other words if my group of 8 were to reserve one of these penthouses, how would that stay playout. Thanks

  12. Hello,

    The penthouses are so fabulous! I have never visited Dubaj, but If I go there once I would pick Palm Jumeirah, Palm Jumeirah one, which look so wonderful! 

    Thank you for sharing it, I love your articles, it always brings me a new insight into the possible living in the cities, which I would like to visit once.

    Looking forward to your other post and have a great summer!

    Bye Renata

  13. Well, it certainly appears to be a lifestyle for the rich and famous and prices most regular people out of the market. However, I can see where it could be very reasonable if you are making a group trip of at least six people who are all sharing in the cost.

    Actually, I was surprised at how reasonable some of the penthouses actually are. My personal favorite would probably be the Frond A, Palm Jumeirah. It looks very nice but also has a very reasonable price point.

    This is a very well constructed site and should spark much interest from your site visitors who are in the process of planning a trip to beautiful Dubai.

    Best of luck with it!

  14. Very well put together! This site definitely makes me want to book a penthouse asap! So many beautiful places. Great job on the photos and the information. I would like to see a little information on the author, but other than that. Very clean, very nice! Job well done! Thank you for sharing.

  15. What an excellent page for luxury travel!  My wife and I will be traveling to Dubai next year with another couple.  We had not thought of a penthouse before, but this site has opened our eyes to the possibilities.  With two couples, the prices are resonable considering the accomodations.  Great website!  Thanks for the article and for opeing our eyes to new possibilities.

  16. To me, Dubai has always been a city of dreams for me to which I always fantasy about going to the place and exploring. I have heard and read a lot about the luxury that accompanies most buildings especially hotels and penthouses in the city. All the pent house suggested are all of excellent qualities with magnanimous prices. It would definitely be recorded in the list of things I must explore in life. Great post!

  17. Excellent review on Best Hotels Dubai – Penthouses, I thought the best hotel in Dubai is 5star hotel, with all that you have explained in this article,am convinced and I think when next I pay a visit to that country, this particular hotel would make use,You have done an excellent job for this educative article. Thank you.

  18. There are many attractions in Dubai that has been awed by a lot of people, from sand boarding, mosque visits, slope ski sessions to camel safari tour and hop-on-hop-off the bus tours – I mean there are wide varieties of activities to choose from. Most actors and tv personalities from Hollywood are also said to frequent this country for an extravagant vacation. It’s a common knowledge for all that hotels and buildings are designed to be luxurious looking and they take pride on it. I like how each of your hotel and penthouse recommendation are detailed with features and price. If ever me and my friends can push through our most awaited visit, I would probably choose Kempinski’ 4 bedroom apartment. I think it’s one of the most affordable. a stay in Dubai is really expensive but it’s worth the price. Thanks for sharing this!

  19. Enchanting is the first thing that comes to mind before I can even start to discuss your list; underwater rooms, private beaches, themed pools, is more than a mouthful to have in one list. What’s even more pleasantly surprising is that there is not one but two options that fall below the $100 mark with virtually a home setting! Incredible! Thanks for an awesome compilation.

    We are Blessed.

    1. Mark thank you and glad to see that you found these Dubai hotels both incredible and cost-effective in some cases. While Dubai is not the cheapest place you’ll find out there for your travels, it is one of the most unique in the world with its innovative architecture and infrastructure. It’s definitely a bucket list place and your thoughts about the area are spot-on. Thanks again and happy travels!
