From the shimmering gold accents and rich Hollywood colour palette of the Burj Al Arab to high-speed glass elevators soaring high above the check-in desks at Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Dubai’s opulent hotel lobbies are (perhaps unsurprisingly) some of the most spectacular in the world.
Step into the lobby of the Waldorf Astoria on Palm Jumeirah, for example, and you’ll be greeted by a stunning centrepiece featuring 800 hand-blown glass pieces.
Or for a more traditional Middle Eastern aesthetic, the Arabesque lobby of Al Maha features handcrafted furnishings, intricate mosaics, and a ceiling with traditional wooden beams.
Like pretty much everything else in the city, Dubai’s hotel lobbies are sure to impress from the moment you step through the front doors – check out these top spots across the city.
The lobby of the Burj Al Arab Dubai is a sight to behold, with its towering height, gold-leaf decor, and striking fountain sweeping up guests in grandeur and luxury.
The atrium itself is an impressive 590 feet tall, making it one of the highest in the world. The colour scheme is bold and eye-catching, with a striking combination of red, blue, and green that creates a mood of luxury.
At the Armani Hotel Dubai, inside the Burj Khalifa – the world’s tallest tower situated right by the Dubai Mall – the elegance, sophistication, and attention to detail that are the hallmarks of the brand’s signature style are on full display in the stunning lobby.
The sleek and minimalist aesthetic that defines the ‘Armani lifestyle’ is everywhere – from the single-hued furnishings to the impeccably arranged flowers. Every element has been carefully considered to create a sense of refined luxury.
