I would describe it more as a private villa property, with a sprawling hotel as its main building.
What stands out the most in Park Hyatt Dubai Creek is the abundance of natural light, lots of sprawling areas, and white as its main colour with touches of teak and bits of mediterranean colours for effect.
Marbled floors, white pillars, high ceilings. I am a big fan of natural light so I fell in love with the interiors alone. Definitely clean, classic mediterranean architecture.
The hotel itself is just 2 storeys high. But overall has 225 luxury rooms and suites, ALL of which have a waterfront view, facing the Dubai Creek.
on to the rooms:
Just like the hotel lobby, hallways and interior–the rooms reflect a LOT of space as well, and lots of white. I do love the open bathroom-main room feature, which can be closed with a window too if you want privacy.
The hotel has 5 restaurants and lounges. All of them are featured in Dubai’s Time Out publication, making the hotel quite a popular hangout for expats, locals, and tourists alike.
This is my favourite nook in the hotel’s Traiteur French restaurant. You get your privacy yet it’s not too closed in.
One should try the buffet is the hotel’s Arabesque restaurant. We had lunch there, and the mediterranean food was just divine.
I do love the layout of their pool. It’s in the middle of the hotel where there is an open space. You can have shade if you want, and the pool is not too large.
This is the Shisha area, where guests and diners can hang out after dinner or lunch and spend time talking over shisha sessions.
After a round of golf or swimming, one can head to the hotel’s Amara Spa. I love the little courtyard that leads to the spa. Consistent with the hotel theme, the spa itself is also spacious (almost like a mini hotel property on its own), lots of outdoor showers, and the spa rooms are very spacious.
Those who are more into sweating it out than chilling it out at the spa can head to the gym. All brand new equipment. And look, you can even Tweet while spinning!
I love the outdoors so I rate this hotel very highly. While it is huge and sprawling, it utilises the open areas very nicely. Lots of options to dine and relax outside the restaurants, and while they have their more than complete and very high-tech gym, you can also jog around the hotel (if you can bear the heat in Dubai).
The best feature about this hotel is its location. Popular among government guests as the hotel is located near the Dubai consulates and embassies strip, this is also a famous stop-over choice, those wanting to see a glimpse of Dubai in just a short time (perhaps 1-2 days) as the Park Hyatt Dubai creek is very close to the airport.
