Raffles Dubai

Luxurious little brother of the world famous Singapore hotel

It doesn't have the history of its big brother in Singapore, but since its late-2007 opening Raffles has become a major player on Dubai's hotel landscape.

The 19-storey hotel is situated alongside the Wafi mall and is inspired by the same Egyptian architecture. The huge pyramid is, in fact, already considered one of the architectural icons of modern Dubai.

Raffles is within easy access of most areas. It is possible to be in Deira, Sheikh Zayed Road, Bur Dubai and the airport within about ten minutes drive from the hotel. Testament to this fact is the hotel's astonishing view.

Many guestroom balconies and restaurants alike afford unrivalled views of many of the major landmarks of the city and it is in a unique position to be able to overlook the whole city.

The Egyptian theme continues inside the expansive foyer but is contrasted with Arabian touches and a distinct nod towards the Singaporean heritage of the brand. The area is dominated by a huge water feature and a resident pianist will welcome guests or passers by from Wafi (the hotel has direct access to the mall extension).

The hotel offers 252 rooms and suites and all are among the most generously sized in the city and each comes with a private balcony.

The hotel has 7 food and beverage outlets. From the lobby level Raffles Salon (tea room-style café) to award-winning Solo Restaurant & Bar, a homegrown Italian restaurant.

In the Raffles Garden built around the concept of the elements: Fire, Water, Wind and Earth, guests can enjoy a well-rounded Arabic themed menu set amidst 12 exclusive open-air cabanas surrounded by a stunning outdoor garden oasis.
