Hotel Review: Pullman Dubai Deira City Centre Hotel
Hospitality has a whole new meaning in Dubai. Here, everyone is treated like royalty and the Pullman Dubai Deira City Centre Hotel is no different. The Pullman is an elegant hotel designed with dignity and class. This isn’t just any other hotel, it has a sophisticated class about it and you feel that the second you walk through the doors.
The Pullman pulls out all the stops in Dubai. They have a great outdoor pool complete with a poolside bar, a full service gym and spa, meeting and conference rooms and free wifi, which makes it the perfect hotel for a holiday or for business.
If you are visiting on Business or just want something a little extra, be sure to book an executive room and get access to the executive floor. In my opinion, the Pullman takes the executive floor to a whole new level and provides a great escape from a busy city. The executive option really defines the way you experience your hotel stay. From the minute you walk in you will be ushered to your room, without the need to stand in line at the front desk to check in. Once on the executive floor, all amenities are within an arms reach. A separate breakfast is served in the executive lounge with a wide array of foods at their classy buffet as well as made to order English, American and Arab breakfasts. The executive lounge is open all day and provides a special happy hour with complimentary drinks and finger food each evening. This is the perfect place to escape your room for a quiet place to work or as a classy location for a business meeting during your stay.
The Pullman is also connected to the Deira City Centre Mall that you can walk to straight from the hotel lobby. This mall is great and full of excellent shopping, restaurants and even a movie theatre so there is always something to do. If you need a new dress for a nice dinner out, or forgot to pack socks it is really convenient to have a full mall at your disposal to get those last minute items while traveling. The mall also has a metro stop so if you want to explore Dubai with the locals, the metro is a great (air conditioned) way to see the city.
One of the best reasons to stay at the Pullman in Dubai is their Soma Spa. This tranquil spa is beautiful and relaxing and will help you truly experience the luxury Dubai has to offer. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly and the massage therapists are very talented. No matter what treatment you choose you will not be disappointed with the experience.
“Welcoming you with a refreshing drink and a luxurious foot bath, your discovery to an exquisite indulgence for your senses with Soma Spa awaits.“
The Soma Spa was my first spa experience ever. I know, I know, it’s crazy! I’ve waited this long to go to a spa, but waiting for the luxury experience the Soma Spa had to offer was well worth the wait. I didn’t think I would like a massage, but boy was I wrong.
When I first arrived I was greeted with a welcome drink and settled in. Then I was taken into the ladies changing room where I was able to get good and comfy in a big robe and slippers. After I was changed I went into the sauna for about 15 minutes which felt really nice to just relax and sweat out some stress. After I was ready the massage therapist showed me to my room to start the treatment. I was a bit nervous since I had never done it before and wasn’t sure what to expect.
In the room I was eased with the sound of peaceful music and the smell of rich spices. The therapist choose a treatment that was right for me, since I didn’t know what would be best and during the whole massage made sure that I was comfortable.
I never thought I would like getting a massage, but it really was a great experience. Everyone one at the Soma Spa was very helpful and explained everything to me so that I could understand. Whether you have had dozens of spa experiences or like me, never have gone before, I would highly recommend a treatment at the Soma Spa at the Pullman in Dubai.
I would highly recommend a stay at the Pullman Dubai Deira City Centre Hotel, one of the most complete accommodation options we have yet experienced. It is a great hotel that will leave you feeling rested and ready to explore all that Dubai has to offer. Rooms start at about $160 a night and airport pick up service can be arranged.
