Dubai is well known for its wide selection of top luxury hotels, with tourists benefiting from a range of high-end facilities and services.
Habtoor Grand Resort & Spa is an excellent choice for those enjoying Dubai holidays, with the five-star accommodation being just a stone's throw from Jumeirah Beach.
Made up of two towers, this resort has more than 440 rooms and suites, all with superb amenities. These include air conditioning, internet, mini bars and televisions with a selection of movie channels.
Just a half an hour's drive from the airport, this property is surrounded by semi-tropical gardens and has a number of themed restaurants for those hoping to experiment with international cuisine.
Looking for a bit of adventure? A massive array of activities is available, with tennis, squash, water skiing and windsurfing all firm favourites of guests.
Even closer to the airport is the Hyatt Regency Dubai. This swanky establishment, also with a five-star rating, is ten minutes away from where you touch down in the emirate. Conveniently situated five minutes from Dubai's business and shopping areas, the hotel offers holidaymakers a great opportunity to enjoy some retail therapy while on vacation.
Prefer to be pampered? The resort has a range of luxurious outlets onsite, including a hairdressing salon, a beauty parlour, spas, Jacuzzis and a steam room. For sportier guests, a jogging track, ice-skating rink and a nine-hole pitch and putt golf course are available.
If you are taking children with you on your Dubai holidays, Mina A'Salam at Madinet Jumeirah is the perfect place for you. Set in a traditional Arabian backdrop, this top luxury hotel is primarily made up of interconnected rooms, meaning you will be able to keep a close eye on youngsters, yet still retain some privacy.
The resort also has a kids club, a PADI training centre for scuba diving lessons and more than 40 restaurants, ranging from casual dining establishments to some of the world's most famous eateries. Hoping to soak up the sun? There is an outdoor climate-controlled pool that will allow you to lie back and top up your tan.
