Park Hyatt Dubai (photo by Brad A Johnson)
On my way back from a work assignment in India last month, I stopped for a couple days vacation in Dubai. I had originally planned to go shopping and skiing at that mall with the indoor ski slope, but once I checked into the Park Hyatt, I instantly changed my plans. I never left the hotel. Didn’t see or do anything in Dubai outside of my hotel. No shopping. No skiing. No sightseeing. No desert treks. Park Hyatt has long been one of my favorite luxury hotel brands, and the Dubai property did not disappoint. Between lounging by the pool, smoking an apricot hookah on the veranda, and eating the best tabbouleh EVER, I snapped a few pictures. Have a look around.
I love the architecture of the hotel, which is situated on the banks of Dubai Creek, sprawled across a park-like setting adjacent to Dubai’s most prestigious golf course and yacht club.
The lobby lounge is incredibly peaceful.
The food (especially the tabbouleh) was fantastic.
In typical Park Hyatt style, my room was minimal and serene but extremely luxurious.
This is one way to arrive, by sea plane on Dubai Creek. But I came by car.
