The Oberoi, Dubai

Contemporary luxury in the Business District

It would be easy to pigeonhole The Oberoi, Dubai as a business hotel, with its prime spot in Dubai’s Business Bay. But its bountiful amenities make the property just as appealing to leisure travelers, too.

The hotel’s 252 modern rooms and suites are like a home away from home. Bright yellows, reds and vibrant floral arrangements accentuate the earthy tones of its smart décor. Black-and-white photographs of Indian palaces adorn its stately corridors. The sanctuary-like spa performs authentic Ayurveda-inspired treatments, and its dining venues serve a range of international cuisines, from Indian to Peruvian, with something for everyone.

But most importantly, The Oberoi stands an exemplar of the Indian hospitality ethos in the Middle East. With an on-call butler for every guest and a ready-to-please staff, the hotel makes all feel welcome.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • The attention to detail and warmth-exuding service stands out, even in a city where luxury hotels abound. You’ll notice it from the moment you breathe in the pleasant jasmine scent in the bright, busy white marble lobby with its glittering handcrafted chandeliers and gold-leaf ceiling, and sip on pineapple juice kindly offered by the smiling attendant.
  • Don’t miss a chance to indulge in the spa. The treatment rooms come with a private relaxation area, an en-suite steam room and shower. And the Ayurvedic massage room features shirodhara hot oil facilities for a calming, stress-relieving service.
  • While many hotels provide pillow menus, The Oberoi, Dubai goes a step further. A box holds detailed descriptions and mini samples so you can feel what a duck down, buckwheat, memory foam or hypoallergenic dual-zone pillow is like before requesting one.
  • Every room comes with a butler who is at your beck and call 24 hours a day.
  • After a day of business meetings, unwind in the large, temperature-controlled terrace pool, surrounded by the impressive architecture of the area. A pool attendant will supply you with a cold or hot towel, sun tan lotion and a refreshing popsicle.
