Take the perfect break from Dubai with a cosy boutique stay in London
The skyscrapers and bright lights of Sheikh Zayed Road make Dubai one of the world’s most dynamic places to live but we all need a bit of rest and relaxation once in a while.
So, with a well-needed break, and a spot of shopping in mind, we hopped on a flight to London for a mini boutique escape at one of the capital’s chicest hideaways in the heart of Mayfair.
The first thing you notice about Browns is the location, it really couldn’t be any better, especially if you, like us, relish the chance to stroll and explore. A 10 minute walk takes you to Bond Street or Regent Street and a plethora of the capitals coolest shops, bars, and restaurants.
But for the first night at least, exploring is the last thing on our minds as we settle into our quirky well-designed suite, complete with views of the pretty street below and facilities that would fit in at any of the luxury spots we’re used to in the Middle East.
Each room and suite at Browns is individual. The hotel was created by merging a clutch of London’s most fashionable addresses, ensuring that each guest enjoys their own experience and no two rooms are the same.
Browns is also home to an in-house spa and restaurants so, if real relaxation is at the top of your agenda, you need never leave.
London’s an amazing place to explore year round but if you’re hoping to catch some of the UK’s better weather, check in between March and September.

Browns Hotel is also known for it's fabulous afternoon tea. Sandwiches, hors d'ourves, and pastries with your choice of any number of teas. Reservations are required as this is a local's spot. Rarely do you see the tourists here. It's not inexpensive, but worth every morsel.
