The 8th edition of Big Boys Toys Dubai is set to be held from the 22nd to 24th of March 2018 in Dubai. BBT is the region’s premier luxury lifestyle expo. The show displays the world’s most unique and luxurious products and services from an amazing lineup of the world’s most innovative manufacturers. But the biggest issue is where to stay during one of the best design events in the world. But don’t worry, we got your back. Check out CovetED‘s top 5 hotels to stay during the event, and the only issue you’ll have is to decide where to stay!
Burj Al Arab
The Burj Al Arab is the most expensive luxury hotel on this list, and that spot is well deserved. The sheer uniqueness of this hotel is evident from the moment you first set eyes on it as it’s fashioned in the form of a giant sail rising over a thousand feet in the sky. To that end, the hotel has been created on a man-made island, which is only connected to the mainland by a causeway. It is a grand feat of modern architecture. During the nights, the hotel is lit up in various different colours that reverberate through the sail-like structure of the hotel. This sense of luxury and opulence is carried well into the interiors as well, with the atrium being surrounded on either side by towering golden pillars.
The Palm Dubai
Located on the western portion of The Palm, this boutique hotel is ideal for those who value sheer beauty and charm, but also peace and quietude. You can travel down to main Dubai via taxi, which takes about 30 minutes. However, the locational inconvenience is worth it when you take into consideration the unhindered view of Dubai Marina and the Jumeirah Beach Residence waterfront, which only residents of this luxury hotel are offered. The hotel favours a sandstone coloured palette and is designed in the Moorish and Andalusian stylings, with lots of sharp geometric patterns in the design, along with extravagant fountains, pavilions, and other similar features.
Jumeirah Beach Hotel
This luxury five-star hotel is located quite close to Burj Al Arab, on the beach across from it. The location is quite fortunate because you’re within 10 minutes of walking distance from Madinat Jumeirah, which is one of the most famous and extravagant shopping centres in all of Dubai. This 26-storey resort was created back in 1997, and it has been designed in the shape of breaking waves, perhaps as a compliment to Burj Al Arab.
This luxury hotel is located centrally in Oud Metha, which isn’t either the most fanciful or most exciting location in Dubai, however, it’s really well connected and is perfect for guests who prefer a little quiet and solitude. In the vicinity, you can head over to the Sheikh Zayed Road malls, and you’re also well within walking distance of the Financial District of Dubai. Creekside Park is an attraction which is close to the hotel, and it is also well connected to the airport which is just 15 minutes away.
Armani Hotel Dubai
This luxury world-renowned hotel made in the name of the famous fashion designer is located in the cultural heart of Dubai — Burj Khalifa. The boutique hotel occupies several floors in the iconic building, is connected well to the Dubai Mall, and its view can boast sights such as the Dubai Fountain, Dubai Opera House, and Souk Al Bahar. If you’d like to while away your time at a particularly trendy neighbourhood, you can easily access Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard, which is the prime spot for trendy cafes, restaurants, and some great luxury car watching.
