In a city where luxury lives on every corner, understated elegance goes a long way, and attention to detail is what sets Mandarin Oriental Jumeira, Dubai apart from the rest. Here are the details to check out when checking in

The Canopy of Light feature in the marble and wood lobby of Mandarin Oriental Jumeira, Dubai

Canopy of light

This is not your everyday hotel lobby. Guests at Mandarin Oriental Jumeira, Dubai are met with a forest of light complete with 14 mesmerising trees, each glittering with 900 lights, while white marble floors with their cool and calm appearance draw you in from the desert heat. Pass by the lobby come sundown to join locals and visitors taking in the spectacle in what is fast becoming Dubai’s living room. The reflecting pools down the centre of the lobby capture and reflect the tree lights – mimicking the sea beyond. This ‘canopy of light’ was created by Preciosa and DesignWilkes, drawing inspiration from the Flame of the Forest trees in full bloom.

The hotel Spa’s layered and curved ceilings pay homage to the desert’s rolling sand dunes, while the shades of blue in the floor bring in the soothing sense of the Arabian Gulf, which laps gently onto the pristine white-sand beach outside. Indulge and enjoy some quiet reflection in one of the cocoon-like relaxation pods before or after your treatment – the pods come complete with mandala colouring books. The Nomadic Sensory journey experience is specially designed to indulge every sense – listen out for the beating of traditional Emirati drums.

Chefs adding the finishing flourishes to dishes in the open kitchen of Tasca
