Dubai certainly doesn’t do things by halves. If a new luxurious hotel goes up somewhere else in the world, you can be sure they’ll try and out do it. If a taller building gets erected, Dubai will attempt to trump it. This is a paradise that does everything bigger and better. From its humble beginnings, Dubai had a dream over ten years ago to turn itself into a world-renowned tourist destination. It already had the amazing weather, it just needed the hotels to go with it. An boy have they been busy! With just a six and a half hour flight time from the UK, Dubai is a fantastic all year round sunshine getaway. With plenty of competition amongst the hotel chains, there are now fantastic deals to be had and it is no longer a luxurious paradise reserved for the rich and famous. A flight and hotel package for five nights can start as cheap as £399 and when the hotels proclaim four or five stars, in Dubai they really are. The Travel Titans team have visited Dubai many times over the years, so here are 5 of our favourite hotels for you to stay in.
