At once modern and rooted in the colours and essence of the desert, Arjaan by Rotana is a hotel well worth a look when you’re traveling to Dubai. Located in the heart of Dubai’s Media City, the hotel overlooks the Palm Jumeirah Island, with view that can stretch for miles.

The suites and apartments feature contemporary Moorish-style interiors, which open onto balconies with picturesque cityscape and sea views. Guests can experience the true luxury residence by relaxing in the spacious living room with an LCD TV or prepare their own meal in the fully equipped kitchen, a unique and particularly nice addition to a hotel room. For a true escape, you can head into one of the suites with a private plunge pool – perfect for a relaxing evening watching the lights of the city come to life. It’s this room that is the highlight of the property. It offers guests the privacy and elegance that they require, far from the eyes of those at the public pool, and with the opportunity to relax in their own apartment.

Dining options include a poolside snack bar Veranda and Arabesqué Restaurant, which opens for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as a highly regarded brunch. Other amenities include a temperature controlled swimming pool and a modern gym.

The hotel is an ideal location for families as well as those traveling without children, as there are separate swimming pools for kids as well as baby-sitting facilities. Beach access can be had for a small fee at the Riva Beach Clubon the Palm Jumeirah with a complimentary shuttle from the hotel, a nice gesture instead of waiting for a taxi.

Ideally located 15 km from Dubai International Financial City and 25 km from Dubai International Airport and a few steps away from the Dubai tram connecting you to other parts of the city, the Arjaan by Rotana is a step above other hotels due to it’s location, its amenities as well as the service they provide. We highly recommend Arjaan by Rotana, and after you take a look at their images, you will see why it should be at the top of your list for your holiday or business trip to Dubai.
