Staycation: JW Marriott Marquis Dubai

Celebrate the festive season at the world’s tallest five-star hotel


 The rooms 

Having transformed itself into a festive wonderland, JW Marriott Marquis Dubai is a fitting place to spend the holidays, with ample space to welcome guests. Its 1,608 guestrooms and suites have luxurious finishings – think marble bathrooms with oversized tubs – with views of the glittering skyline or Dubai Water Canal. Families can book a suite and spread out in two separate living and sleeping areas.


 The food 

There are 15 award-winning restaurants and bars at the property, each serving up a festive treat. Marvel at life-sized gingerbread house at the entrance of La Farine Café & Bakery, before having a cosy afternoon tea. Join the Festive Wanderlust brunch on 25 Dec, which promises a merry time with 11 live stations, or ring in 2019 with a six-course menu at Prime68, as fireworks illuminate the night’s sky.


 The activities

The hotel is close to many of Dubai’s top attractions, but there are lots of perks that’ll tempt you to linger at the property. Take a dip in the sparkling outdoor swimming pool or, for a spot of pampering, head to the opulent Saray Spa, which has 17 treatment rooms and the UAE’s only Dead Sea floatation pool. Try The Saray Golden Hammam, which includes a decadent skin massage using 24-karat gold.
