Glamorous glittering Dubai

Sandip Hor finds that when someone mentions a glittering city, Dubai strikes his mind instantly.

It’s the second largest city of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), which lives with the never-ending desire of building icons, best described with superlatives such as tallest, largest, first, only and so on. Here large is the stepping stone for largest and luxurious is only a brick in the world of luxury.

It’s the haven for shopaholics, the commercial nucleus of the Gulf and hub of Emirates Airlines, which flies to almost every corner of the world from this desert city.

Obviously, the city has no shortage of hotels to provide a bed for the increasing number of visitors. However, among many,  the plush and glittering Taj Dubai stands out distinctly to many visitors because of its convenient location, ultramodern facilities and par excellence hospitality.

The hotel is a grand fusion of extravagance, heritage and trendiness with over 3000 pieces of exquisite paintings and sculptures elegantly studded to it proclaiming its rich artistic traditions.

The Indian themed hotel has 296 rooms and suites, each tastefully decorated with grand furnishings, offering views of either the city skyline or Burj Khalifa Tower, the world’s tallest building.

The location in the heart of the Business Bay is a plus for the business travellers while Dubai Mall, one of the city’s top-rated shopping complexes, is only minutes away. The hotel runs regular shuttle services between the hotel and the shopping sanctuary where a major attraction is an indoor aquarium and the outdoor dancing fountain. The international airport is only 15 km away.

Bombay Brasserie

“Spoilt for choice” is perhaps the factual slogan to express the eating experience at any of the hotels seven restaurants and bars that entice guests with an authentic culinary journey through a great mix of cultures and countries. Experienced teams deliver an authentic experience through the culinary delights of each restaurant with Taj’s world-renowned service ensures a memorable meal for each and every guest. Bombay Brasserie is popular with curry lovers while Miss Tess serves many recipes from other parts of Asia- China, Korea, Thailand, Vietnam and Japan. Breakfast is served at the Tesero where the buffet spread includes items from the kitchens of India and China, in addition all the other usual items from a variety of juices, fruits, cereals, salads, cold cuts, and bakery products to sausages and eggs prepared to orders.

The hotel offers many facilities to relax, keep fit and shed off those extra calories gained. These include the Jiva spa, swimming pool and state-of-the-art fitness centre.

For the business-minded, the hotel is perfect for all types of meetings, conferences and banquets.

Life can be delightful when sleeping at the Taj Dubai.
