Within six months of its opening, Raffles Dubai, the latest addition to Raffles Hotels & Resorts’ portfolio, has captured the attention of international globetrotters with its striking architecture and timeless design.

Accolades for the unique architecture and design of Raffles Dubai have emerged around the world. A Time magazine feature gave Raffles Dubai its nod of approval for its “understated grandeur…heralding good taste within”, while Decoration Mondanite, one of Dubai’s leading interior design magazine, cites Raffles Dubai as “an outstanding example of architectural diversity, successfully marrying Middle Eastern and Asian architectural and design styles” .

Raffles Dubai’s striking pyramidal structure takes inspiration from the great pyramids of Egypt, whose graceful edifices have long enchanted and inspired travellers and adventurers. This wonder of the ancient world continues to fire our imaginations and today Raffles Dubai stands almost as tall as the original pyramids, soaring 100 meters, with a glass capstone perched at the pinnacle forming the top three levels of the hotel.

Not only does Raffles Dubai’s stunning façade make an architectural statement, its interiors also present a treasure trove of design excellence, to deliver the residential charm that Raffles hotels and resorts around the world are renowned for. Society Dubai magazine, describes, “Judging by the hand-made chocolates in the rooms and the bookfringed, library-style lobby sitting outside the conference rooms, everything has been designed to capture the essence of the company’s logo, the symbolic traveller’s palm that welcomes all the weary home.”

Mark Neem, Head of Design & Construction, Raffles Hotels & Resorts, commented, “We are extremely pleased with how successfully the hotel exudes the attributes that are
unique to Raffles properties. From the lobby to the library to the suites, each space has been carefully designed and tastefully decorated to create the ambience of cultured luxury and refined elegance that distinguish Raffles hotels and resorts the world over. Suites at Raffles Dubai are designed to resemble stylish apartment residences rather than hotel rooms so that they offer not merely accommodation, but a residential sanctuary that feels
like home. In fact, these traits are consistently applied to all Raffles properties, including Raffles Beijing and our new resort Raffles Jimbaran in Bali where our villas will be
unmistakably unique.”

When asked for details, he adds, “At Raffles Jimbaran in Bali, all bedrooms and bathrooms will lead to an outdoor patio with its own secluded plunge pool, designed to
draw upon its surroundings which are peaceful and serene, while upholding the passionate attention to detail one expects from the Raffles name. All villas will feature an
ocean view and, with their gracious and luxurious interiors and refined exterior design, guests will be instantly enveloped by Raffles’ world renowned blend of culture and
service from the moment they arrive.”

As Head of Design & Construction for Raffles Hotels & Resorts, Mark Neem ensures that the residential charm, elegant architectural style and refined interior design
associated with Raffles hotels and resorts the world over, are maintained to the highest standards in all Raffles Hotels & Resorts’ properties.
