Staycation: Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates

Experience fire, ice and all things nice at this alpine-inspired property


The rooms 

Escape to a snowy setting by booking yourself into one of the hotel’s coveted Aspen Ski Chalets. The generously-sized rustic abodes each feature a faux fireplace to cosy up to while admiring the sub-zero views of Ski Dubai through floor-to-ceiling windows. The hotel has 393 rooms and suites in total and each has been recently refurbished, adding a fresh touch of luxury to this famous five-star address.


 The food 

For light bites, retreat to the grand lobby and Aspen by Kempinski, where couples can indulge in the His & Hers afternoon tea. Come nightfall, OLEA offers a contemporary take on Levantine cuisine, while a Spanish fiesta is stirred up at Salero Tapas and Bodega. Be sure to try the hotel’s unforgettable signature dish – succulent slow cooked beef cheeks in demi-glace, created by executive chef Sudqi Naddaf. 


The activities

Be pampered at Softouch Spa, stick to your fitness goals at the gym and be beautified at Maison de Joelle salon. Plus, during the summer, guests staying for a certain number of nights can take advantage of great rates, with passes to major Dubai attractions such as Magic Planet, Orbi Dubai/iFly Dubai, Little Explorers and Ski Dubai. Check into a chalet and you’ll even be assigned your own personal ski trainer.
