Subtle sophistication rules at this new Marina spot
Time Out Dubai staff
The latest in the Address hotels chain (the hat-trick, if you like) is located in ‘new Dubai’ – the Marina, and is no less impressive than its sisters either side of the Dubai Mall. Rising above most of the surrounding buildings the hotel has already become a local landmark, especially for foodies after fine French fare at signature restaurant Rive Gauche. While Mazina offers a five-star international buffet, outdoor pool bar Shades now has a special Martini Lounge complete with DJ and futuristic (white, bulbous) seating. The candle-lit spa offers couples treatments as well as sauna and steam room facilities, and the rooms themselves are modern and spacious, with balconies overlooking the yachts and busy bar below and beds comfortable enough for a princess.
