Staycation: Roda Al Murooj Hotel

City chic meets resort-style relaxation at this lively property in Downtown Dubai


The rooms 

Situated directly opposite The Dubai Mall, in the heart of all the action, this five-star hotel offers a luxurious resort-style setting at an urban address. Book a Roda Discovery Premium Room and you’ll have plenty of space to work and relax, city or pool views to gaze at, and access to all the benefits of the Executive Lounge, including a private reception area, airport transfers and complimentary breakfast.


 The food 

A gem nestled within the hotel’s lush green gardens, Tabule is the place to go for exquisite Middle Eastern delicacies. A further quintet of restaurants includes Pergolas for global dining on a grand buffet scale, the convivial Circle Lobby Café for coffee and light bites (its homemade pastries are a delight), and Dubai institution Double Decker, for British-themed eats and entertainment.


 The activities

Retreat to the landscaped terrace pool where you can unwind and be in the moment – the picturesque spot is often a top choice for wedding ceremonies. If you need to expend some energy, two tennis courts serve fast-paced fun while Flow Health Club & Wellness has a gym, fitness studio, sauna and steam rooms, and offers bespoke facial and massage treatments designed to recharge your batteries.
