CNT Exclusive: The Oberoi, Dubai

Dubai can build—there’s no denying that. It builds grand, tall, shiny hotel towers better than anywhere else. And it fills them, too: Dubai regularly clocks the highest hotel occupancy in the world, ahead of cities like New York and Shanghai. So, is the opening of The Oberoi, Dubai on 15 June a stroke of genius or a late entry in a competitive market? Time will tell, but here’s what you need to know: the 252-room hotel tower is located in the Burj Area; it’s only a few minutes from both The Dubai Mall and Mall of the Emirates (complimentary shuttles for guests to both); it delivers on their commitment to light, height and space with well-designed rooms and suites, a 24-hour spa and signature design elements such as white marble floors and bursts of red. In a city obsessed with the grandest and tallest in terms of architecture, the harsh truth is that few of Dubai’s hotels go from grand to great—and that’s due to service. This is where The Oberoi, Dubai has a distinct edge. If it can deliver the sort of service we are used to getting from them in India (personal butlers that are the best in the business; an obsession with knowing the name of every guest, etc), then it will truly succeed. And chances are high. Dubai’s well-heeled Indian community is already showing support—and especially looking forward to the rooftop bar, slated to open this fall.
