Dubai is a city of incredible contrasts – where some of the world’s largest and most futuristic landmarks sit alongside ancient, cobbled streets and bustling souks. Taking prime position overseeing the prestigious downtown and Burj Khalifa precinct, Taj Dubai puts you at the heart of where it happens.

Located a mere five minutes from the famed Downtown area and The Dubai Mall and just 15 km away from Dubai International Airport, Taj Dubai offers the ideal vantage point to watch the bustling city assume its glamorous, late-evening avatar. Luxurious suites offer awe-inspiring views of the world’s tallest building while you are only a short walk away from the Dubai Mall, a fashionista’s paradise boasting over 1,200 stores and trendsetting venues.

India’s rich heritage is woven into all of the hotel’s 296 rooms and suites, where traditional influences including hand-made furniture and hand-painted Indian artworks are given a cool, contemporary twist. Taj Dubai also houses two lavish suites. The Maharaja Suite, inspired by opulent Maharaja’s palaces in Rajasthan includes a picturesque roof terrace on the 33rd floor of the hotel. The Presidential Suite, with its fine balance of understated elegance and opulence, measuring 680 square meters, occupies the entire 35th floor, with its own spa room and gym.
