Hotel Review: The Park Hyatt Dubai – a perfect Hotel in the heart of the city
(deutsche Version) As commonly known, there is a huge bunch of hotels in the city of the Middle East and even the Hyatt Group has 3 building in Dubai and two more (the new Hyatt Capital Gate and the beautiful Park Hyatt Ressort) in Abu Dhabi.
On my short transit from Johannesburg I was especially excited because of my stay in the beautiful Park Hyatt Dubai, directly at the Marina. It’s a classic town hotel, centrally located and close to a big mall.
From the international airport of Dubai (DXB) you can reach the hotel by car in less than 15 minutes. It’s located on the side of the Bur Dubai Areals and hidden in huge arranged park. When my Emirates chauffeur picked me up, I got the feeling the park wouldn’t end during the drive from the entrance to the hotel itself. So if you would like to have a shopping tour in the mall: no problem. But make sure to be driven there by golf cart since it’s 45 degrees Celsius.
A lot of rooms carry a fantastic view on the Dubai Marina, the little harbor with many impressive yachts. In the harbor itself you find a restaurant of the hotel and on the opposite site another one.
Just the location alone makes the hotel an ideal basis for further explorations in this pulsating city. But that’s not all. Also if you are looking for silence and relaxation, you find a pool in the inner yard, surrounded by palm trees.
Bordering to the pool there is an air-conditioned lounge, where they also showed the games of the Eurocup. This brought the event a little closer, even though the distance.
The building of the hotel are rather small, none of the typical Dubai sky scrapers – more familiar and relaxed.
In the yard itself there is a restaurant for breakfast and Diner, equipped in the typical Arabian style, another restaurant, a lounge, a café with Arabian specialties and a little shop, which also contains the business center. So if you cant or don’t want to use the Wi-Fi or internet on your room, you can surf, work or copy and print stuff here.
Rooms and suites:
I stayed in one of the bigger suites that contained living room, guest bathroom, bedroom and a huge bathroom with shower, tub and close wardrobe. But more about that later.
Many of the rooms and suites can be enlarged ingeniously. If they are used for a single person, each of them has its’ own entrance. For families or friends the lobby has a door that merges the two rooms. From the outside this makes one room of the two, or if you need it an office if you merge a room and a suite.
The corridors to the rooms and all public areas take over the design and flair of the house so well. They are colored in Arabian colors and patterns and go well together with the nice rooms and suites.
Already when you enter the room you recognize the warm colors we just seen in the corridors. A little lighter but still in covered colors the suites surprise with design and the fantastic view. The living room offers more than enough seating possibilities. Armchairs, couch and chair offer enough space for a whole family.
In a separate corner of the rooms you find a desk that is arranged in a way so that you get the fantastic view and can watch TV at the same time. You can have it as you like. Right beneath it there is a minibar and one’s very own Nespresso machine in order to make coffee whenever you need it.
The quipment of the minibar is extensive and the prices are more than okay for a hotel of this class. You find enough water in the whole suite, in the living room and in the bedroom, which also offers another integrated fridge in order to cool your own stuff without emptying the minibar.
The bathroom is equipped with high quality Bergamote 22 amenities. You can go through the wing doors and enter the bedroom and into the big bathroom.
Besides the King Size bed is the TV, DVD Player and another armchair. There is also an own balcony and enough place for an additional bed for kids.
Noticeable is the open area to the bathroom that lightens it up, but might not be everybody’s thing. You can easily close this “open area” down with a wall, so that the bathroom becomes a little darker and you block the view from the shower on the Marina. Do it as you like.
The bathroom itself convinces with a big tub, as I found it in the Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi. Additional to that there’s a accessible rain shower and separate toilette with two sinks. So it shouldn’t become to tight in the bathroom in the morning. The bordering wardrobe (one of two) offers enough space for your clothes and clothing right there.
Here are a few pictures of my little meal from the room service: a light diner with chicken wings and salad. At lunch time, they offer a tasty lunch in the restaurant and my breakfast at the buffet was delicious.
The super polite service began right at the arrival. As expected the luggage was unloaded for me and brought to check-in. Even the room was ready to be occupied and that at a time when other hotels can’t even come up with that. It might be because of my announced arrival for 8 A.M. and my diamond status at the hotel chain. But now it was just 6.30 in the morning and I didn’t expect to be able to enter the suite.
The Park Hyatt Dubai is a beautiful, modern and new city hotel with exceptional service. Whether check-in, hotel shop, restaurants or pool: the whole personnel are cordial and polite. They give you the feeling of being welcome and I also felt like at home right way. And that means something.
Weather family, as a couple or as business trip, it’s definitely worth it to spend a few nice days here. The location is perfect for further exploration tours in and around the city.
If you are looking for a beach anyways, I recommend you the great Ritz Carlton Jumeriah Beach or the Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi. Both are great hotels as you can read when clicking on the name.
