As of 2015, the Jumeirah Dar Al Masyaf; Atlantis, The Palm; and Movenpick Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel are some of the five-star hotels located in Dubai. These hotels have a wide variety of opulent architectural designs with lavish decors and amenities.
The Jumeirah Dar Al Masyaf stretches the boundaries of a boutique hotel with 283 luxury rooms and suites, 29 summer houses with private pools and over 40 bars and restaurants. Designed in the old Arabian courtyard summer house style, guests can be taken to their rooms on small dhows that glide on the canals weaving through the lush tropical grounds.
Atlantis sits on the peak of the famous man-made Palm Island with commanding views over the island as well as downtown Dubai. The hotel and its grounds are designed as the ancient lost city might appear with a large water park incorporating pyramids and replica ruins with waterslides, lazy rivers and adventure experiences. An abundance of aquariums and sea life allow families to swim with dolphins, feed stingrays and view sharks.
The Movenpick Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel has a complete 14th-century Arabian Nights-style theme, decor and construction. It has 396 rooms and destination-themed suits. The hotel has three floors reserved exclusively for business travelers with separate check-in and lounge facilities. Its eight restaurants offer Asian, Indian, Italian and Moroccan cuisine.
