Raffles Dubai was chosen for our 3 nights in Dubai pre-cruise over many fabulous properties. From over seas, one is confounded with the choices as Dubai has so many luxury properties, some on the beach, some at the Burj Kalif, etc. Where to book? Settling of Raffles because we loved Raffles Singapore, we were fully anticipating excellence. Staying on the... More

Classy hotel with very spacious and beautifully decorated rooms. Service is as good as it gets and staff is very friendly. Good location close to the airport. This is obviously not a cheap option, but still worth the price.

Stayed there one night only while for business in Dubai. Very specious diplomatic suite. The staff were very attentive and polite throughout the stay. Didn't have the time to try the food in the hotel though. I assume it is very good too. The only low point was that the air conditioning in the room was set to 19 degrees... More

Raffles is a brand that brings expectations, if you stay here then your will not be disappointed. Grand lobby with plenty of welcoming staff, smooth and elegant check in. Club rooms are great, very large, well fitted out and the bonus of a balcony. The landmark suite is huge and amazing. But what makes Raffles is the staff, we dealt... More

The wow moments start as soon as you step into the reception at Raffles. To say it is majestic would be an understatement, feels like you have entered a colossal Egyptian temple complete with mammoth pillars adorned with Egyptian motifs. The rooms are spacious and opulent. The views of the Dubai skyline from your private verandah are stunning to say... More
