Dubai’s most beautiful hotel lobbies

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.
