Arabian Courtyard Hotel & Spa, Dubai: The Choice for Alternative Tourists


It may not seem so evident now, but tourism is one of the most integral parts of Dubai. Of course, when you say “vacation,” Dubai is not one—or not even among—of the first places you’d think of. This distinction is reserved for more supposed scenic countries like France, United Kingdom, Austria, United States of America, Japan. Dubai, to many people, is like a mythical city (thanks to how the media has portrayed all things Arabian). As one of the cities of the United Arab Emirates, Dubai is not as a location where one can enjoy as a tourist. However, this has changed. Many people now go to various Asian countries to enjoy sights, sites, and sounds that are entirely different from what one has been used to. After all, what’s the point of a vacation if you simply go to place or a country similar to where you live? In Dubai, you can have the ultimate vacation, a reorientation of what you know the world you live in. It helps that Dubai is very accessible as it is at the crossroads of Asia, Africa, and Europe.

So what better way to enjoy the city of Dubai than to stay a hotel where you can enjoy the ancient and modern attractions it has to offer at an accommodation where you can feel comfortable and relaxed? The Arabian Courtyard Hotel & Spa in Dubai could be this kind of hotel. This four-star hotel is located in Bur Dubai, a central location where you can enjoy close proximity to important places such as the Dubai Museum, the Dubai Creek, the Souk Al Kabeer, and other important landmarks and tourist attractions. Other places you would want to visit (such as the Spice Market and the Heritage Village) can be easily accessed through the water taxi, also known as the Abra.


Their rooms, all 173 of them, are what you imagined a hotel room in the UAE would be. Elegantly designed, you would feel as if you are one of the characters from “Arabian Nights.” These rooms boast of traditional Arabian designs, with sand, ocean, and sky as the main color themes (these three are the common backdrop of the life in Dubai and in the Arabian Peninsula). The rooms are designed so they won’t feel detached from the city (as some hotels do to most of their). Instead, you will feel right at home without feeling as if you did not leave your own bedroom. But although they are designed traditionally, you will still feel comfortable thanks to the modern amenities such as free Internet access, multi-channel televisions, and temperature control, among other common hotel features.

The Arabian Courtyard Hotel & Spa also has restaurants and a wellness and leisure center. Among the restaurants include the Silk Route (which specializes in Thai and Chinese food), Mumtaz Mhala (a Indian Speciality restaurant), Ahlan Lounge (a café that brew Starbucks Coffee), and the Sherlock Holmes English Pub. For those who want to sample the city’s finest cuisines and delicacies, there’s the Bastakiya Café and Restaurant.

And what would the Arabian Courtyard Hotel & Spa be if it does not even have a wellness spa? Their spa is almost the best in the country, a fitting reward to tourists after a long day of sightseeing. The hotel also has a sauna, a Jacuzzi, and a steam room, as well as outdoor swimming pools and a gymnasium for all the fitness buffs.
A good hotel makes the visitors feel as if they never left home in terms of comfort. But it also has to make the visitors feel the best the city or country has to offer. This is what the Arabian Courtyard Hotel & Spa does.
