Checking in: Grosvenor House Dubai
Grosvenor House is situated in the heart of Dubai Marina, surrounded by breathtaking skyscrapers on one site and beautiful sea views on the other. It is one of the most luxurious hotels in Dubai and stands as a landmark of modern excellence.
Grosvenor House has two glittering twin towers with 749 spacious, contemporary guest rooms, suites, and apartments. The hotel is located just minutes from the beach, golf clubs, and shopping malls.
Grosvenor House is approximately 30 minutes drive from the Dubai International Airport and 20 minutes from the city center, financial district and major shopping malls. It is located in the beautiful Dubai Marina. The location is perfect to enjoy everything Dubai has to offer. The neighborhood of Dubai Marina offers spectacular views, many amazing restaurants, and cafes and it is filled with people during the day and night. Just a short taxi ride away you will find famous shopping center Mall of the Emirates, spectacular Burj Al Arab, beautiful Madinat Jumeirah and lovely Wild Wadi Water Park.
The hotel itself is simply amazing. The lobby of Grosvenor House is beautiful, very elegant and modern. At the entrance, you will see large arrangements of fresh flowers that give the lobby glamorous look.
The hotel itself has 14 restaurants and bars (you will find famous Budha Bar here), retreat health spa in Tower One, attitude spa in Tower Two, meeting & events facilities for up to 400 people, exquisite wedding venues and also serviced apartments that you can rent long term.
Upon our arrival, we were friendly greeted by a team of staff at the check-in desk and after the quick formalities, we were escorted to our room on the 29th floor. The service at check-in was excellent, they even arranged the transfer to the airport for us at no cost.
The breakfast buffet selection at Grosvenor House was spectacular, it offered everything from starters to main courses. You could choose from classical continental breakfast (eggs, ham, cheese, bread…) to more unusual breakfast selections like salmon, sushi, and even Indian curries. Everything was amazingly prepared and tasted delicious!
The Grosvenor House is famous for its restaurants, all together, you can enjoy 14 outstanding restaurants and bars offering a world of taste. One of their most famous restaurants is the Buddha Bar with superb food, which we enjoyed on our last night at the hotel. The food was not only delicious but also perfectly presented on the plates! We would warmly recommend you to visit this restaurant. Be sure to book a table in advance. This is a must do! For a lovely end to our evening, we visited chick Siddharta Lounge, which had an exceptional selection of cocktails and offered excellent views over the marina.
Our corner room was located in Tower One of Grosvenor House. The room itself was very spacious with large windows overlooking the Dubai Marina and amazing L-shaped terrace overlooking The Palm Jumeirah and Burj Al Arab. The view was sensational, especially in the evening when the city came to life with all the spectacular lights.
Elegant furniture, with light-coloured walls and high-quality marble finishes, defined the indoor space. The room had a very comfortable king-size bed and a nice working area with dark wood table. You could relax at comfortable armchair and read your complimentary daily newspaper. The bathroom had a bathtub as well as a separate rain shower and premium Bulgari bath amenities.
Wellness & Beach
The Retreat Health & Spa is a luxury oasis and offers a full menu of treatments for body and mind. You can totally relax here, but if you wish to work out, there is a gym equipped with everything you need for a great workout and if this is not enough, there is also a jogging path around the Marina. You will have amazing views while you go for your morning run.
If you prefer to visit the beach, there is a hotel shuttle that will take you to the sister resort Le Royal Méridien (5 min drive) which offers free beach and pool access for the guests of Grosvenor House. There you will find beautiful green gardens with 13 additional restaurants and bars. But nothing can beat the view from the beach with the tall skyscrapers behind you. Simply amazing!
