Folks, today we are going to review one of my personal favorite stay-ins from the vibrant city of Dubai, the St Regis. As you might already know, the hotel is a part of the Al Habtoor City development.
Situated less than a kilometer from Business Bay metro station and almost right next to the arterial Sheikh Zayed road, you are going to love your stay at the St Regis. I mean everything is so close by that you wont feel fatigued at all throughout your stay.
If you take a taxi, it takes you barely 10-15 minutes to go the Dubai Mall and 25 to the Dubai International Airport. The style is a neat and elegant but there’s a slight exoticism to the décor. Hence if you’re an admirer of “light and airy” this might not be the biggest of fits for you.
Surfing the whole property might not be the best of ideas as of yet, since it is not very well known for that. However, you could look ahead a few years when the 3km-long Dubai Creek extension project is finished. Then it is going to be an entirely different story. A Las Vegas-themed “water theatre” alongside Dragone opened in autumn 2016.
The desk staff were super friendly without being particularly warm, but I personally felt smiles and small talk flowing more freely. So it was all good. There are butlers for all guests who will bring (complimentary) tea, coffee or refreshments in your room.
There’s a sufficiently estimated, parquet-stunned exercise center where you can Skype, Facebook and even get up to speed with Ted Talks as you work out, while the Iridium Spa has treatment rooms prompting separate male and female hammams, saunas and unwinding regions.
With regards to whatever is left of the hotel the style in the 234 bedrooms is substantial, (thick, striped, silk backdrop, profound drapes, bunches of marble in the bathrooms), which appears to be more suited to crisp Chicago in January than sweltering Dubai in August.
Room types lead in with Deluxe at a liberal 55 square meters. Bathrooms have separate shower and downpour head shower. At the highest point of the heap, Grand and Royal Suites have private back rub rooms and a different staff entrance.
Up the broad staircase from the hall is a French bistro where you can stop for cakes and tea. Past that is the Brasserie Quartier for throughout the day feasting, beginning with breakfast smorgasbord and which has an exuberant champagne-fulled early lunch on Fridays.
The ground floor St Regis Bar pays respect to the Bloody Mary – said to have been designed at the New York property, thinking back to the 1930s.
Exclusive room prices start at £270 every night, which incorporates head servant administration – you can get two pieces of clothing squeezed for nothing – rising to £340 in high season. Wi-Fi service is free of cost. There are wheelchair-available bathrooms on the ground floor and 10 rooms explicitly outfitted for guests with in-capacities.
