First off, the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai is the tallest hotel tower in the world.
Actually, there are two towers!
But surprisingly enough, it was not the astounding height that impressed the most – I mean, sure, it is fabulous to sip a cool drink with friends on the 69th floor, overlooking the milky way of Dubai’s skyline – but just look at the gorgeous interior of the hotel!
Every angle, a fresh and tight elegance of interior design that sets the “JW” Marriotts apart from the regular Marriotts; in fact, the JW denotes a collection of luxury properties within the Marriott group, which propose an exquisite and exceptional stay based on the philosophy that “no two places on earth are exactly the same and neither are any two JW Marriott luxury hotels. Each offers understated elegance that perfectly reflects the authentic art, architecture and cuisine of its locale. That’s what makes every stay unique and that’s what makes travel special.”
So feast your eyes, until you have the chance to visit in person:
Such a work of art – understated luxury at its best!
And so I needed a car that would match the spirit: uncompromising, yet chilled; energetic, yet effortless; and especially it had to look awesome!
The MINI Paceman S met the criteria, and my only regret is they didn’t let me drive right into the lobby!
If you haven’t driven a MINI recently, you are in for a treat with the Paceman S!!! It is enormous on the inside… MINI doesn’t necessarily mean mini anymore. And the interior layout is unique and fresh – it feels like you’re in a nightclub!
The Dubai MINI showroom shows how it’s done:
But back at the JW Marriott, it was time to choose a place to eat. And not any place, and not an easy choice! Again, the decor was outstanding.
Are you feeling international?
Or fancy Japanese?
I’m glad the JW Marriott didn’t stop the focus on its record-breaking height, but really aimed at the interior – still, staying at the world’s tallest hotel is something to write home about!
And if you thought the attractive design has ended – visit the spa and health center!
