7 Stylish Hotels in the UAE to Book for Your Summer Staycation

You can’t have a great summer staycation without a great hotel. To make the most of the summer holidays, we’ve picked the seven boutique hotels in the United Arab Emirates that offer will make you want to never check out.


JW Marriott Marquis Hotel

While this hotel is located in the hustle and bustle of Downtown it manages to offer a plush sanctuary far from all your worries. Case in point: the deluxe bedding and marble bathrooms in your suite, not to mention their heated outdoor pool and award-winning Saray Spa. If you’ve somehow run out of things to do in their 80,000sqft space, the Dubai Opera, Dubai Mall, and Burj Khalifa are minutes away.

Abu Dhabi 

Four Seasons Hotel Abu Dhabi

Imagine this: a hotel where you can get a massage, shop and have business meetings without ever having to step outside. Now open your eyes and book a stay at the Four Seasons Abu Dhabi. Besides The Galleria, their Dahlia Spa and their plush Al Meylas lounge, they’ve also got premium waterfront rooms, an outdoor pool, and even an Emirati art collection within the hotel so you can relax and feel cultured at the same time.

The Oberoi Beach Resort, Al Zorah

If wandering around an expansive private hotel terrace fully kitted out in a hotel bathrobe and slippers with a cold beverage in hand has always been a dream of yours, you’ll get to fulfill it at The Oberoi’s sprawling Ajman estate. If you book yourself a villa, you’ll even get to take a dip in your very own temperature-controlled pool– if, of course, you haven’t already organized a golfing or snorkeling trip for yourself and your family through the hotel.

InterContinental Fujairah Resort

Would you rather have a hotel stay on the beach or in the mountains? Trick question– you’ll get to do both at the InterContinental Fujairah. With stunning views of the Al Aqah coastline and the Al Hajjar mountains, you’ll never run out of things to look at from the private balcony in your suite. Drink chef-prepared mocktails by the shore and stay warm by one of their three beach firepits after you drop off the kids at their Kids & Teens Club– now, how’s that for luxury?
