Blending French art de vivre with local culture and customs, Sofitel Hotels & Resorts delivers a warm welcome in every corner of the world


Delivering an authentic travel experience is something Sofitel Hotels & Resorts excels at. This famous French hospitality brand, established in 1964, places its guests at the heart of the approach, giving rise to sophisticated accommodations that champion the essence of the locale, allowing travellers to gain a richer insight into a destination’s culture, cuisine and way of life. Here are three on our radar…

Sofitel Dubai Jumeirah Beach

Located along The Walk at JBR, Dubai Marina’s bustling promenade, the hotel stands out from the crowd with its locally-inspired design elements including deep blue ceilings sprinkled with thousands of twinkling lights. All rooms and suites have a private balcony with a sea view, and fun times come in the form of an infinity pool as well as direct access to the beach. For a memorable meal, head to A.O.C, where French classics are prepared at live cooking stations.

Sofitel Dubai Downtown

A stone’s throw from Burj Khalifa, this cosmopolitan hotel (main image) also has a panoramic view of the coastline. Enter into a world of French elegance by booking a Prestige Suite and rest up in the feather-soft bed. Plus, those staying in club rooms and suites enjoy complimentary access to Club Millésime lounge. For a sit-down dinner, we recommend you try the Georgian delicacies at Modi restaurant.

Sofitel Abu Dhabi Corniche 

Located at the Eastern tip of Abu Dhabi’s Corniche Road, this property is characterised by wave-shapes, ocean hues and mother of pearl design details that lend a soothing vacation vibe. All rooms and suites offer breathtaking views of the corniche. Push the boat out by booking the spacious Imperial Suite, nourish yourself at Parmigiana Italian Restaurant, where contemporary Italian fare comes to the fore, or head to [email protected]’O for Arabic and Mediterranean dishes by the pool. Open until 3am, Jazz & Fizz bar tempts you to stay up past your bedtime but if you’ve overindulged you can go for a tension-busting body massage at SO SPA.
