The Moevenpick Hotel Ibn Battuta Gate Dubai is a luxurious hotel between Palm Jumeirah and Palm Jebel Ali. The design is distinctly Arabic, with the Grand Hall and its 88 glass lanterns forming a glitzy centrepiece. Rooms are themed around the various exotic countries the Moroccan explorer Ibn Battuta travelled to in the 14th century, including Andalucía, Persia, Thailand and Zanzibar.
The hotel is opposite the Ibn Battuta Shopping Mall and a short walk from Ibn Battuta Dubai Metro station, for easy access to Dubai’s top attractions. The marina is a 10-minute drive away, while the Oceana Beach Club on The Palm Jumeirah takes roughly 15 minutes to reach by car. The hotel offers a free hourly shuttle service to the beach club as well as free access to its facilities, which include a private beach, a lazy river and an infinity pool. There’s also a complimentary transfer on Fridays and Saturdays to Dubai Mall and the Mall of the Emirates.
Dining options include Italian, a pan-Asian restaurant, a buffet with live cooking stations and Chor Bazaar, which won a BBC Good Food award 2013 for Best Indian Restaurant in Dubai. On the rooftop you’ll find a temperature-controlled swimming pool and a bar, while the eighth floor is home to the health club. Head to the Majlis bar in the Grand Hall lobby for Arabic hot meze.
The elegant bedrooms have a 40-inch LCD television, a separate bathtub and a walk-in shower, plus free Wi-Fi. Superior and Deluxe Rooms overlook the city. Executive Rooms come with access to the Executive Lounge, which includes perks such as afternoon tea, evening cocktails and airport transfers.
