The Park Hyatt Dubai is a refreshingly tranquil resort to escape from bustling Dubai. This wellness-focused resort has so much to offer. There are tons of outdoor activities like golf and tennis, a renowned spa, three different lagoon pools (two for adults and one for children), and 11 award-winning restaurants. And so, it comes as no surprise that guests from all over the world flock to Dubai to experience this resort and spend their entire vacation without leaving the resort. Below, is an inside look into why you should add the Park Hyatt Dubai to your bucket list.
Location & Setting
The Park Hyatt Dubai is situated on the Dubai Creek, boasting sweeping views of the marina. There’s Dubai skyline on one side, and on the other side, acres of manicured gardens and golf courses. The property’s location is superbly convenient as it’s a short drive of just 10 to 15 minutes from the Dubai airport, as well as attractions like the Dubai Mall, and the Burj Khalifa.
What makes this resort stand out is its suitability for both an adult-only vacation and for families. There’s also a top-notch kids club catering to kids ages 3 to 12.
The rooms are very spacious. They are adorned with a plush, king-sized bed, soothing white and cream hues, and beach-style furnishings. The bathroom has a luxurious feel to it with a large freestanding bathtub (with bath salts) situated in the middle, a rainfall shower, and L’Occitane toiletries.
As I was travelling with a baby, it was a nice touch to find a baby robe in the closet.
Our room was facing the Family Lagoon Pool, an incredible hybrid beach-infinity pool, where guests can step outside of their terrace and straight into a tranquil oasis.
The Park Hyatt Dubai is a strong champion of wellness. As such, a visit to the Park Hyatt Dubai is incomplete without experiencing the Amara Spa. The spa offers a variety of treatments like luxurious massages, hot stones, facials and scrubs.
All of the products used for the treatments are from Natura Bissé. For the scrubs, guests can create their own mixture by selecting the raw ingredients. These vary from exotic potions of herbs, salts, and oil extracts.
I particularly loved that each of the eight treatment rooms is equipped with its own indoor and outdoor shower (with a private courtyard) and that after my scrub treatment, I can relax and drink lavender tea in my own garden.
Gym enthusiasts will thoroughly enjoy a state-of-the-art gym that’s open 24 hours and features Technogym equipment, and private lessons can be arranged upon request. And there’s a Rossano Ferretti Hair & Nail Salon to pamper yourself.
Start your day off with a top-notch breakfast at the Brasserie du Park, which TimeOut rates as one of the best places for brunch in Dubai. This breakfast will hit the spot for any health-conscious eater. You have a beautiful selection of freshly squeezed juices like ginger, watermelon, and beetroot, as well as an array of imported fruits like mangosteen and berries to choose from.
There are ample dining experiences at the hotel to choose from. My favourite was the Thai Kitchen, known as one of the best Thai restaurants in Dubai, and the Indian restaurant, Cinnamon Club. Both of these eateries use the freshest ingredients, are bursting with exotic flavors, and provide stellar service.
