Bizarre Dubai hotel suites

In the mini state of Dubai, home to 600 hotels of which 65 are 5 stars or higher, it will take a lot more to impress guests than a simple bottle of wine or free Wi-Fi in their room. How about a hot tub with a view of 65,000 bright fish in a subtropical lagoon? Or perhaps a dining table at a ski slope while the outside temperature rises above 40 degrees?

Robert De Niro, Antonio Banderas, Lily Allen and Naomi Campbell – they all stayed at Atlantis, one of Dubai’s mega hotels. It took 2 years to build at a cost of 1.2 billion euros. During the extravagant inauguration in 2008, 25 million euros in fireworks were set off in 15 minutes. Critics stated that this would be the downturn for the Dubai hotel boom. However, this has not yet been the case and the hotels in Dubai still boast the highest occupancy rates in the world.

Good night: the ski run closes at midnight

The coolest: the Kempinski ski chalet

Outside it is blistering hot, while inside lies a thick layer of fresh powder snow. The fact that one can ski in Dubai is quite bizarre to start with. Even more strange is that the 5-star Kempinski hotel offers accommodation in 15 ski chalets with large panorama windows overlooking a ski slope. These spacious suites measure 45 up to 228 square metres and are equipped with traditional alpine furnishings, including a fireplace with a crackling fire.

The wettest: Atlantis underwater suite

Soak in a bubble bath while the sharks, sea horses and manta rays swim by to have a curious look – it is the order of the day at Hotel Atlantis, which is located on one of the Palm Islands. The Neptune and Poseidon suites each encompass 3 floors and feature huge windows that look out over the artificial Ambassador Lagoon. Prices start at 9,000 euros per night – butler included.

The most expensive: Burj Al Arabs Royal Suite

A Royal Suite at the only ‘7-star hotel’ in the world, the Burj Al Arab, costs approximately 17,000 euros per night. Simply step into a private elevator that whisks you straight up to your palace on the 25th floor — where a living room decorated with a mix of hand-knotted carpets and gold-plated pillars, 2 bedrooms − one of which has a rotating four-poster bed − and your very own cinema await you.
