Al Habtoor Palace

A grand palatial stay by the Dubai Water Canal

Located in Al Habtoor City, a lively complex of luxury hotels and residences, world-class restaurants, bars and entertainment, Al Habtoor Palace offers luxury and sophistication in equal doses in the heart of Dubai. It’s hard not to be swept off your feet by the French beaux-arts architectural style, whether it’s the grand illuminated facade that looks over fountain pools, the magnificent sweeping marble staircases and columns in the lobby or the opulent crystal chandeliers that grace ceilings.

A spa and seven restaurants, including a New York-style steakhouse, a courtyard lounge and a champagne lounge, promise to keep you busy, while other restaurants, bars and cafés in the area ensure you have plenty of options. Right next door is La Perle Dragone, Dubai’s first permanent show — a larger-than-life theatrical performance that involves aqua aerobics, aerial feats and immersive technology.

The Dubai Water Canal lies at your doorstep here, best explored by bike on a path that runs along fascinating contemporary architecture and Safa Park and connects to the residential neighborhood of Jumeirah with beaches along the coast.
Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Featuring a palette of taupe, tan, gray and beige, the French décor of rooms and suites — complete with damask and striped wallpapers, classic chandeliers, elegant chaise lounges and dark wood furniture — conveys a sense of quiet, Old World grandeur. Ask for a Grand Deluxe Room with a view over the Dubai Water Canal — the perfect scene by which to enjoy your morning cup of coffee from the in-room espresso machine. Marble bathrooms come with free-standing bathtubs, separate showers and dual vanities.
  • Make use of the butler service, available to all guests at the luxury hotel, to have your bags packed and clothing pressed on request.
  • The luxurious Silk Spa offers a variety of massages, facials and body treatments in six treatment rooms. Arrive at least 30 minutes before your service to make use of the wet facilities such as the sauna, steam room and hammam.
  • To relax, choose from two outdoor rooftop swimming pools where pool butlers hand out fruit sticks, smoothies, cold towels and sunscreen. Guests also have access to swimming pools at the adjoining Hilton Dubai Al Habtoor City and V Hotel Dubai, Curio Collection by Hilton, and the pools and private beach at Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah, a 30-minute drive away.
  • Make time for a meal at World Cut Steakhouse where darkwood finishes and leather seats work together to create an ambiance that’s both stylish and cozy. Signature dishes on the menu include Australian beef tenderloin, Omaha rib eye, Canadian lobster and yellowfin tuna tartare.
