Hyatt Place Dubai/Jumeirah is a perfect place to stay, socialise, and dine
By Roma Arora

It’s elegance personified; the new Hyatt Place Dubai/Jumeirah is a great place to spend time with family, friends, and for business travels. Centrally located, both the hotel and apartments are super stylish combined with practical amenities such as free Wi-Fi and free breakfast, all contributing to an uncomplicated stay. As you enter this the property, the spacious and beautifully decorated lobby will grab your attention, also the lovely boutique shops for its guests to shop on the go. The design of the lobby will define the guest’s first impression of the hotel and will influence the overall experience. With an overall light colour theme, space is decked up with amazing artwork that adorns the walls. It is also one way of connecting with guests because having a unique and intriguing local art with a story adds to a memorable guest experience in the hotel. The lobby has been built around the concept of an evening lounge experience to encourage more socialising and collaboration.

The rooms are very spacious and every bit sophisticated and classy. Large glass windows bring natural light in every room. From soft furnishings to the overall décor of the room, things are kept functional and beautiful. What was amazing as well were the super big bathrooms and that is a bonus for any traveller. In the room, distinct zones for sleep, work and relaxation have been established to offer our guests a greater sense of control, connection and customisation throughout their stay. Designs also go beyond what guests see, and this hotel has taken into consideration all the human senses to offer them an immersive experience.

This clearly got all my votes! The pool of the hotel is lovely and gets an abundance of sun and guests can unwind themselves in utmost peace and calm. Near the pool area, you would find a hi-tech and fully equipped gym to sweat it out.

The meeting rooms are spacious and perfect for your next social gathering and formal events. One of the selling points for customers when looking for a hotel is how they feel about its interior design. If guests are comfortable with the overall design of the hotel, there is a huge likelihood that they will book a room. It’s not just the service that is crucial, but also the environment and atmosphere created with the help of the design of the spaces. When designing the dining outlets, the hotel’s focus was to offer a global diner, inspired by the world, the food made locally. This means taking culinary inspirations from across the globe and cultural expressions from the neighbourhood to deliver flavourful and delectable cuisine in a casual, simple, and elegant environment. The dining outlets at Hyatt Place Dubai/Jumeirah namely Focus, Wox, and The Market offer true global dining for everyday life at competitive prices. I can vouch for this, sumptuous food without burning hole in your pocket.

What further impressed me were the sustainability initiatives taken by the hotel. Sustainability is a big subject and it has been taken into consideration while designing the entire hotel as part of our Hyatt approach in design for sustainability. The city’s local cultural elements are infused to make this location-relevant and this can be seen in the art pieces in the rooms, the lobby, and the meeting spaces. Hyatt Hotels Corporation has launched a series of initiatives to reduce waste at Hyatt hotels globally, including introducing large-format bathroom amenities and reducing single-use water bottles by June 2021. Like, transitioning to large-format bathroom amenities to replace traditional small bottles of shower gel, shampoo, Décor review conditioner, and lotion to reduce disposables and select environmentally preferable options whenever possible.

Another interesting initiative taken by the hotel is increasing the number of water stations in key public spaces at hotels for guests who wish to refill reusable water bottles. Other recent global initiatives have included removing plastic straws and drink picks and making alternative options available only by request at Hyatt hotels, and increasing the use of compostable, recyclable or recycled content packaging for to-go food containers. The staff at the hotel is worth all the mention and applause. It just makes your day when a smiling face greets you. Not to forget that the new generation of travellers tends to spend on experiences rather than on things, so they would prefer to visit museums, theme parks, cultural places and engage in adventurous activities. They also search for value-for-money accommodations that will offer a comfortable stay after an exhilarating day. And that’s what exactly Hyatt Place Dubai/Jumeirah offers. The demand for serviced apartments will continue to rise as we get closer to Expo 2020. The anticipated influx of business travellers, relocating families, and leisure visitors to the UAE before, during and post-Expo will present healthy growth for the sector. Hyatt Place Dubai/Jumeirah also has 84 fully-furnished residences which is a great option for newcomers to get settled in Dubai. Everyone wants a piece of luxury, comfort, and amazing dining experience on their trip, Hyatt Place Dubai/Jumeirah is all this and much more!
