Depending on what you’re planning to spend, the occasion you’re going for, and when Airbnb just won’t do, check out this insider list of the best hotels for your budget around Dubai.


Al Maha Resort

Part of the Luxury Collection Hotels, Al Maha Resort is located in the heart of the Dubai Desert. Yes, you read that right: it’s in the desert. Expect to splurge on your stay while enjoying a private villa with your very own swimming pool on the porch. Surrounded by nothing but serene desert and wildlife, this is a perfect hotel for a special occasion!

The newly built Palace Hotel, located just across the fountain from the Burj Khalifa, is one of the best places to be for a romantic setting in the city.
