Habtoor Grand Beach Resort & Spa


Introduction: Situated on Dubai’s World-famous Jumeirah Beach and adjacent to the magnificent Dubai Marina, the Habtoor Grand Beach Resort & Spa Autograph Collection Dubai occupies one of Dubai’s most enchanting beachside locations.

Above information is how the hotel presents itself on their website.

Below is my experience based on a one-night stay at the property.

My Arrival experience: My room was not ready in the morning, but I had complimentary internet and enjoyed the resorts excellent facilities.

What I loved: The beautiful contemporary design and excellent facilities.

What about the food: The breakfast buffet is crowded with people. I am picky with food and especially breakfast. I was disappointed with the selection and quality of food.

What about the service: Professional well-trained front desk staff, but other areas of the hotel such as the spa could be improved.

What about the rooms: Beautiful rooms with freestanding bathtubs and rainshowers. The beds are comfortable, but could be more soft. The lobby is beautiful, but has a strong unplesant smell of perfume. The rooms also have working desks, flatscreen Tv’s and balconies with beautiful views.

Number of rooms: 446.

Website: grandjumeirah.habtoorhotels.com

Type of property: City resort.

Location: Dubai.

Facilities: Spa, swimming pool, gym and meeting facilities. There is also a business center, but it’s chargeable to just use a computer to surf the web which I find unacceptable. The resort is definitely worth its 5 stars in terms of facilities and none of the facilities feels out-dated.

Complimentary internet: No, only for Marriott Rewards members. You can join this loyalty club for free.

Affiliations: Autograph Collection.


My overall impression: Great experience.
