... was big until we visited Dubai Mall at over 500,000 square metres and boasting 1200 shops. It's hard to believe that retail is such a boom industry when there are soooo many shops, but after oil, it's one of the largest revenue streams in UAE.

The reason for visiting the Mall was a vantage point to see the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building, and one that dominates the skyline of Dubai from every angle.

... atmosphere was incredible, with the various influences being evident – Jodie thought that these were mainly Moroccan and Turkish with the scent of spices and various wares providing a sensory overload. Had morning break at the St George Hotel just down the road from the souks. The gold souks too, were more than expected, with dozens and dozens of shops selling gold and white gold jewellery and watches.

At the moment sitting again in Dubai's airport and waiting for our flight. Just had 10hrs flight from Cape Town to here and feels so tired and so exhausted. Besides that all the beautiful memories are crossing the minds. Had an amazing time in Cape Town. Amazing!!! The blast! Cape Town is so windy! One day we got into sand storm! Was crazy as we had sand everywhere - bags, ears, clothes, body, hair.. ...

Dubai city tour

... Driving here is quite easy, nothing like the driving madness elsewhere in this part of the world. Roads are well sign posted, and car parks all over the place.

The Burj Al Arab is the long term iconic sail shaped hotel that you see on all the tourist brochures, now having lost its place as THE icon of Dubai to the Burj Khalifa. It was built on reclaimed land that you reach on a short causeway, if you can - you can't do it without a booking at the hotel. It is touted as a 7 ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Fairmont Dubai

    Service with a smile !

    from

    My husband & I spent 4 glorious nights at The Fairmont at the end of February 2005.Originally we wanted to be beach located,but boy are we glad we didn't choose to stay at one of the more famous beach hotels.We did visit for the day,& both agreed the staff & ambiance of The Fairmont were far superior.I can strongly recommend Pronto's Deli,where we were often to be found late afternoon sampling the wonderful cakes.The mouthwatering fruit & yogurt smoothies round the pool & the gastronomical delights of the Italian restaurant.Oh, by the way we did do other normal tourist things like sightseeing etc etc.Will definately go back there & will recommend to anyone who will listen !!!

    Very very good!!

    from

    We stayed a whole week in the Fairmont and I need to say that this Hotel and service quality plays in a different league. Because without kids, for us it was the perfect combination between beach and city. Beach is very good arranged with the partner Hotel Le Meridien Mina al, shuttle service at 11.00am(by taxi EUR 8, takes 15 minutes), prices by Le Meridien for a top 5 star hotel very fair. Prices within the Fairmont for the different restaurant also very fair (ERU 35-50, 2 persons, non alcohol). Breakfast in the Fairmont is just excellent(exotic fruits inclusive)

    Great hotel

    from

    Two of us stayed for a week in February and it was fantastic. Staff were friendly and helpful and the quality of furnishings, rooms and room service was great. I was a bit worried about noise from the nightclub (a problem when we stayed previously at the Sheraton Deira), but this proved to be unfounded at the Fairmont as the standard hotel rooms are on floors 21 - 30 and the club is in the basement. This is predominantly a business hotel so not many holidaymakers about. The interior is stunning and contemporary and the internal glass lifts are a real experience - especially if you suffer from vertigo!.

    Best City Hotel By Far!

    from

    Well, what can I say?! Having stayed in alot of hotels in Dubai, the Fairmont has got to be best city hotel by far! Although it is expensive, it is worth every penny. Staff provide excellent sevice (which us Brits love!), rooms are stunning, I had the pleasure of being upgraded to a 2 bed suite and it was out of this world...with fab views over looking the city, the size & facilites are fsimply the best!

    I would stay here again (i will be in Aug!)

    Absolutly fabulous

    from

    stayed for 10 days with wife and 2 children in October 2004. fantastic hotel convieniently located for old town and all shopping facilities. were upgraded to a one-bedroom suite: we all loved it. staff most friendly and could not do enough to help. food fabulous although pricey. hotel arranged daily free shuttle to take people to beach 20 minutes away. very comortable highley recommended FIVE star plus hotel.

    Fabulous Fairmont!

    from

    This is truely a fabulous hotel and certainly deserves the 5* it has been awarded.

    Impressive

    from

    From the moment the taxi pulled up I was 'wowed'. This is one amazing hotel, I could find no fault with anything! The staff are fantastic, the food is outstanding and the atmosphere one of pure indulgence! My only complaint is that I couldn't stay any longer than 4 days!

    Apart from the hic up of the travel company not processing our booking - which took 5 minutes to sort out - everything was perfection itself.

    I have stayed in many hotels,all over the world. but The Fairmont wins hands down !

    Enjoy!

    Impeccable Fairmont

    from

    Very slick and glossy, even by Dubai's high standards. Good location on Sheikh Zayed Road, more or less opposite the exhibition centre, a stroll to Satwa's local restaurants and only a 10/15 minute taxi ride from the Creek.

    Excellent staff; friendly smiles right through the property (though we felt that the obsessive attention we had at breakfast each day from one of the hostesses had more to do with the "employee of the month" competition than an innate, overdev eloped sense of hospitality).

    The visitor to Dubai is spoilt for hotel choice, but the Fairmont is right up there.

    Fantastic Futuristic hotel!

    from

    We stayed at the Fairmont in June 2004 and apart from the initial mixup about our reservation not being confirmed (which resulted in a 4 hour wait)the rest of the stay was excellent. We had a one bedroomed suite which was exceptional and very modern with marble floors and 2 bathrooms.

    We also visited the Willow Stream Spa which again was excellent, very luxiourous and free to those who have a Gold room, otherwise for access you're paying about £10 for the facilities for a day.

    The service was excellent and the concierge was brilliant. Well reccomended! Good location too, in between the beach and the souks.

    Nice hotel

    from

    Stayed there for Arabian Travel Market and it was great. Spacious rooms, great location (accross the exhibition center). They have Wi-Fi available in the public areas and seemed to be free of charge.

    Have 2 pools which are really great.

    The restaurant is dark and that would be my only negative point.

    Service is excellent and lots of european hotels should learn from them...
