Bizarre Dubai hotel suites

In the mini state of Dubai, home to 600 hotels of which 65 are 5 stars or higher, it will take a lot more to impress guests than a simple bottle of wine or free Wi-Fi in their room. How about a hot tub with a view of 65,000 bright fish in a subtropical lagoon? Or perhaps a dining table at a ski slope while the outside temperature rises above 40 degrees?

The coolest: the Kempinski ski chalet

Outside it is blistering hot, while inside lies a thick layer of fresh powder snow. The fact that one can ski in Dubai is quite bizarre to start with. Even more strange is that the 5-star Kempinski hotel offers accommodation in 15 ski chalets with large panorama windows overlooking a ski slope. These spacious suites measure 45 up to 228 square metres and are equipped with traditional alpine furnishings, including a fireplace with a crackling fire.

The wettest: Atlantis underwater suite

Soak in a bubble bath while the sharks, sea horses and manta rays swim by to have a curious look – it is the order of the day at Hotel Atlantis, which is located on one of the Palm Islands. The Neptune and Poseidon suites each encompass 3 floors and feature huge windows that look out over the artificial Ambassador Lagoon. Prices start at 9,000 euros per night – butler included.

The most expensive: Burj Al Arabs Royal Suite

A Royal Suite at the only ‘7-star hotel’ in the world, the Burj Al Arab, costs approximately 17,000 euros per night. Simply step into a private elevator that whisks you straight up to your palace on the 25th floor — where a living room decorated with a mix of hand-knotted carpets and gold-plated pillars, 2 bedrooms − one of which has a rotating four-poster bed − and your very own cinema await you.
