With hotel names like Al Qasr and Mina A Salam, this resort resonates with Arabian charm while delivering nothing but the best in comfort!

Lawrence Brown on Facebook says: “Resort on the canals, private butler per villa, Meerlust Rubicon on tap. Tiger prawns by the ladle full at a beach BBQ, water so warm you don’t know when you’ve crossed from land to sea.”

Fusion Bed and Breakfast Dubai:

If you’re looking for budget accommodation which is still quality accommodation, take a look at Fusion B&B in 25th St.  This establishment is run by South Africans, so you know you can expect the same quality you’d get at home in the bright lights of Dubai.

Nicole Brower on Facebook says: “Fusion B&Bs – fantastic accommodation, owned and run by SA couple. Rates much cheaper than big hotels.”

  1. Very fabulous! almost perfect,I think it;s worthwhile to be there.

  2. We are planning to visit our friends in Dubai and we want to stay in one of the best hotel. I can see that you have a good list of hotels.

    • Hi Florence, there are a very large number of hotels in Dubai, also it’s quite a subjective thing as to which hotels are “good” so it’s not possible to simply draw up a list of “good hotels” for Dubai. What I would suggest is contact our consultants on with dates and what standard accommodation you’re looking for and they can advise a good hotel. Alternatively visit trip advisor as they list hotels based on ratings done by travellers.

  3. Your recommendation is truly awesome. So nice hotels and I will also suggest my customers to choose one of these hotels when they travel to Dubai. Thanks for sharing this information.
