BAZAAR had the pleasure of road-testing one of our favourite Dubai hotel's master suites - and oh how masterful it was!
Located in one the city's most prestigious neighborhoods, Mandarin Oriental Jumeira's elegant rooms and suites offer an abundance of space, combining contemporary décor with guest-centric technology and staggering views. Its restaurants and bars are equally enticing with six first-rate venues including two signature restaurants. Combined with a destination spa spread over 2,000 square metres, a state-of-the-art fitness centre and a kids club, the resort is the most exciting new addition to the region’s luxury hotel scene.
The suite we were welcomed to is the largest of its kind in the hotel - a whopping 1722sqf to be precise. Aptly named The Mandarin Suite, it lives up to its prestigious title. With sweeping views of the mesmerizing Gulf, the spacious accommodation also offers a separate living area, a dining area and a panoramic balcony. This is a suite equipped with its own steam room - need we say more?
Using its magical seaside setting as inspiration, the suite is decorated with earthy tones and vibrant blues, golds and aquamarines. Distinguishingly light and bright with floor-to-ceiling windows affording spectacular ocean views, our suite was sea facing and the wrap around balcony it's crowning glory.
With user-friendly technology including interactive digital bedsides, Ultra-HD Smart televisions, a media hub and charging station with high-speed internet at our fingertips, we were able to set the tone with our own soundtrack throughout the stay - including in the bathroom.
The bathroom is the measure of any good suite and this one boasts his and hers sinks, a vanity table and a gorgeous resin oval bathtub positioned perfectly to take in the arresting sunset.
If a tech-free escape is what you are looking for, why not indulge in the attention to detail of the suite’s literature, with publications documenting the heritage, culture and art of the region, and there are a myriad of seating options in the suite, you’ll be spoilt for choice in choosing where you read it.
In short, this space really has it all, from luxury, to tech, to romanticism - making it truly the suite of our dreams.
