In many regards, which includes travel – Dubai is an expensive city. For those travelling on a budget, who want to enjoy the real essence of the Arabian city, they visit the Wyndham Dubai Marina.
Every Google search of Dubai would always return hundreds of images of picturesque, man-made Dubai Marina. Call it an Instagrammer’s paradise, a beach lover’s joy or a vibrant community living, Dubai Marina has gained a name of its own, where tourism and society living exists in harmony, making it a ‘must-visit’ place.
For those who want to ‘live’ it, Dubai Marina has a variety of accommodation and on the first look, most of them will hit deep into your travel pockets. But, research a little deeper you will come across gems like Wyndham Dubai Marina (WDM) part of the international Wyndham hotel chain. This four-star towering hotel is located right in the heart of Dubai Marina, surrounded by shopping venues, restaurants and cafes from every corner of the world and yes, one of the best beaches only a few minutes away.
WDM also offers free shuttle service to the Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR), Marina Mall and a few others, making your sightseeing plan even easier.
As they say, the first impression is the best impression, when you arrive the staff at the reception welcome you with the brightest smile and smooth check-in.
WDM has rooms that are facing either garden/road or the amazing Dubai Marina. The rooms are quite large and can easily accommodate up to 3 – 4 people, and if you are a small family, you have a lot of space to move around and relax.
The spacious rooms are decorated with cool tones of white, grey and a sprinkle of maroon colours, giving the interiors that ‘Dubai’ vibe. A walk-in area, a lounge and bedroom with a small balcony from where you can enjoy sunsets with a hot cuppa, complete the picture. However, Dubai’s climate does not let you stay out on the balcony for a long time most of the year. The floor-to-ceiling glass windows add that magical extra space while smooth lighting makes the room a perfect spot for an Instagram picture.
A big kudos to the housekeeping staff that are quick as Marvel’s Flash in their service.
The lavish breakfast is hearty including some healthy options while the in-room dining menu boasts of a selection of continental, Asian and of course Arabian.
If you are planning your trip to Dubai and looking to relax by the sea while still being within a few minutes away from shopping and sightseeing, Wyndham Dubai Marina is the place to stay.
