The hotel: Nikki Beach Resort, Dubai
The Location: The Pearl Dubai – a man made island off Beach road.
The design: Inspired by the sea and sky – the hotel follows a very minimal and white theme throughout the property – it’s inspired by the vision of founder and owner of Nikki Beach Worldwide, Jack Penrod and is designed in collaboration with international architecture firm DSA Architects and Beirut-based interior designers Gatserelia Design.
The room: Minimal and spacious – yet very cosy. The bed has a gorgeous sea view within the floor to ceiling windows that you can wake up to – as well as a terrace.
The toiletteries: American brand, Malin + Goetz – which I love.
The restaurants: The hotel has 5 restaurants – Cafe Nikki, Soul Lounge, Nikki Beach Dubai Restaurant & beach club, Nikki Prive – and lastly Key West, which is still in soft launch.
The spa: The spa opened up a few months after the actual hotel, so I went to visit after my stay. Staying true to the designs, with a little twist like the ‘Marteani’ as a welcome drink (a cocktail tea). The spa exclusively uses ESPA products – and highly recommend the lighter legs treatment (which is great for tired legs and feet) with Nancy.
The pool: 4 main pools – and additional private pools for each of the 15 luxury villas. The hotel also has a 450-metre-long private sandy beach.
The gym: The hotel gym was one of the most impressive I’ve seen – with high tech, luxurious machines and equipment from Technogym and Personal trainers available.
The service: There was something cosy about the hotel – just like a boutique hotel would be. I was very impressed with the service and the attention to detail. My room phone didn’t work – so I had a whats app number on call that I was able to contact.
