Modern Dubai is a cosmopolitan society with a wide range of attractions, from watersports, golf and tennis to international sporting events such as horse racing's World Cup. Dubai's legendary tax-free shopping ranges from traditional Arabic souqs to opulent, marble-clad malls, where the choice (and price) of products are unrivalled. The portfolio of quality luxury hotels and desert resorts is always expanding, as are the dining options. With a large expat community and international flavours influencing the cuisine, Dubai now hosts a number of fine dining establishments, including Michelin star and celebrity chef hosted restaurants. Café culture is also something of a lifestyle adaptation in Dubai with a number of great ice cream parlours, cake shops and sheisha bars dotted throughout modern city - not a bad way to spend your luxury holiday. The past hasn't been completely erased by the present, however. Dubai's old heart can still be found in the Bastakia area around the Creek, from where wooden dhows still trade across the Gulf and further afield. And not every modern building is a hotel - the Jumeirah Mosque is a striking example of modern Islamic architecture and well worth a visit. For that burst of much-needed winter sun, a Dubai luxury holiday isn't easily beaten.

Top Hotels in Dubai

One&Only Royal Mirage Residence & Spa

Probably the most exclusive of the three hotels at the One&Only Royal Mirage is the Residence & Spa. When we were there, Roberto Cavalli was sat on the sun lounger next to us - it’s the sort of place where the great and the good of the world go to holiday.

One&Only Royal Mirage The Palace

This is simply a wonderful place to stay. Built to recreate the splendour and opulence of an Arabian palace, this sumptuous beachfront property evokes much of the romance and magic of the Arabia of legend.

One&Only The Palm

Intimate, luxurious and elegantly laid-back are all words we would use to describe this stunning boutique resort. Laze on designer day beds, eat in stylish surroundings and pamper yourself in the elegant haven of the Guerlain Spa. A boutique resort with an exclusive marina and private harbour, this is the perfect choice for a relaxed holiday and service is second to none.

Madinat Jumeirah

Framed by over a mile of private beach, on the popular Jumeirah Beach stretch, three grand hotels, Al Qasr, Mina A’Salam and Al Naseem, and the summer houses of Dar Al Masyaf, are seamlessly linked by waterways and gardens in a visually-stunning authentic recreation of ancient Arabia.
