Dubai Interior Design: Inside The Palace Downtown Dubai

From the moment the car drove me up toward the entry of The Palace Downtown Dubai, I knew I was in for a design treat. Giant archways, a rendered veneer, cobblestone walkways and mammoth palm trees dominated the exterior of this hotel; I couldn’t wait to see what was going on inside.

Before I even got to reception the waft of scented candles gave me international nostril nirvana! You know I go ape for candles, so this was a magical first impression. Tall ceilings were a prominent feature in the lobby, as were large archways, dark woods and lanterns very reminiscent of Moroccan design. The space felt moody and luxurious, with large chairs adorned in velvet and water fountains lined with rose petals (updated in different colours each day, might I add). They also weren’t opposed to showcasing a little bling, with pops of gold and silver also making themselves known in the main areas of the hotel.

Inside my room the moody sense of grandeur was again very prominent. The suite itself was rather subdued in its use of hue, with a brown and beige colour story, but it was an obvious design choice, because it allowed the space to play a supporting role to the stunning view that could be seen from the balcony.

Outside the doors of my room, the view was nothing short of breathtaking. Each night, there’s a water show at The Dubai Fountain that’s bigger and better than the one you might have seen in Vegas, and it plays every 30 minutes – accompanied by a mix of traditional music as well as hits from Whitney, Enrique and Celine (I swear they organised the playlist just for me, except there was no Kylie Minogue!).

In the pool area the view once again took centre stage. The outdoor space was lined with bungalows and banana lounges that you could kick back and relax in, but nothing could draw my eyes off of the view beyond the hotel’s border; the iconic Burj Khalifa (the tallest building in the world) nestled between sparkling towers and pristine waterways that you’d think couldn’t really exist except I’d witnessed them in the flesh and could vouch for their beauty.

I had the pleasure of checking out some of the other hotels in Dubai but I can assure you that the views I was given and the interiors of The Palace Downtown were second to none and I totally won the comp for best hotel suite.

While there were many magical moments in Dubai, the interior and surrounds of The Palace Downtown will stay with me for years to come. I highly recommend you check out their website if you’re ever considering accommodation in Dubai. It’s just beyond!

  1. Beautiful hotel. I love Moroccan style. Especially the fretwork on the windows. Could you sus out some wallpaper with those patterns on? I went to the top of The Burg, amazing view! Did you get to go to the top?
