5 star hotel

4.2

International standards at a luxury resort with excellent facilities.

The newest of the resorts lining Jumeirah Beach, The Westin has added a touch of grand, international class to the area and firmly cemented itself on the local scene. While the hotel impresses in terms of luxury and amenities, I love the wide array of water sports available from the gorgeous private beach at the back.

Location

Well placed between the Dubai Marina and the Burj Al Arab, and just over the road from Dubai Media City, the Westin is nicely located for both holidaymakers and business travellers. A taxi to the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall area will take around 20 minutes, and a ride to the airport around 30 minutes.

Bedrooms

The rooms are amply-sized and mix modern and traditional furnishings in nice subtle shades. The Deluxe Rooms face either the city or the sea (it’s definitely worth getting the sea view) and come with their own balcony. The Westin’s own ‘heavenly’ beds are exactly that.

Public areas

The lobby is a grand, bright and open space clad in marble with a cafe in the centre. Various bars and restaurants sit off to the sides and upstairs.

Eating and drinking

As per most of Dubai’s resorts, the Westin offers a range of eateries. I recommend Bussola, a charming Italian offering either fine-dining or a more relaxed alfresco affair, out towards the beach with great views across to the Palm.

Leisure facilities

Alongside a complex river of swimming pools out towards the private beach, there’s a fantastic array of water sports, with waterskiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, kayaking and even sailing lessons all readily available in the waters of the Gulf, with experienced trainers on hand. Alternatively, there are also floodlit tennis courts, a well-stocked gym and fitness lessons. For a slightly less energetic time, the Heavenly Spa has an indulgent menu of relaxation options.

Service

Difficult to fault - extremely helpful and friendly. 

Who stays there

The Westin is popular with holidaying Western couples and families, but its location also appeals to business travellers. 

Price advice

Summer offers include 20 per cent off a three-night stay.
