InterContinental Dubai Festival City

The InterContinental Dubai Festival City is a 34-story, five-star hotel in Dubai's enchanting and seductive metropolitan city. It's also a leisure destination, with a spa that glows like a fairies' grotto, a glass-bottomed pool projecting from the building, and two appealing dining concepts by three-Michelin-starred chef Pierre Gagnaire – not to mention a massive mall right next door packed with more temptation.

Imagine, the record-breaking screen projection extravaganza on Dubai Creek just in front of the hotel, which features pyrotechnics, water, lasers, and fire. Omega, H&M, Robinsons, and Coach are just a few of the stores at the nearby Dubai Festival City Mall. The January Dubai Shopping Festival sales and the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature (held in March) usually draw large crowds from all over the world, as does Jameel Arts Centre, which is located just across the Creek in Al Jaddaf and offers cultural programming year-round, as well as desert gardens and a sculpture park.

This hotel is serious about everything, from business to leisure, but it's so much more than ergonomic office furniture. The lobby feels like a European retail arcade, with rows of massive columns supporting ceilings so high you'd have to tilt your head backwards to see them. The escalators at the far end take you to the creek promenade, and you will see hotel employees glide across the marble floor, with hotel guests' newly pressed suits slung over their shoulders, taking care not to obstruct the passageway.

Why You Should Go There

If there is one thing that will draw you back to the glorious InterContinental Dubai Festival City, it will certainly be the restaurant, with its wonderful selection of expertly prepared cuisine and courteous service. The outstanding Technogym-equipped fitness centre, on the other hand, is a significant contributor, and when you see the hanging garden of fibre optics flashing around the spa door with exuberant abandon, you'll realize that this is perhaps why this hotel stands out from the crowd.

The glass-bottomed outdoor pool, which runs from the back of the tower and allows swimmers to paddle over the promenade below, then overshadowed that gleaming exhibition. There's a lot of "wow" factor going here.
