Staycation is the new vacation in these times of pandemic. As traveling around the world is still not an option, we residents are going on a staycation locally. Last weekend, hubby and I stayed at Gulf Court Hotel Business Bay.
Located in Business Bay, Dubai facing the Dubai Water Canal, Gulf Court Hotel is a Four-Star Deluxe hotel that opened in 2018. Just a year after it opened, the hotel won ‘Best Debut Hotel’ at the Arabian Travel Awards 2019.
Gulf Court Hotel Business Bay features 270 rooms, suites, restaurants and lounges, meeting rooms, health and recreational facilities including a swimming pool, kids pool and fitness center, a spa, nightclub, karaoke rooms and car parking area.
The Lobby of the hotel is modern and classy. Our check-in and check-out was swift and smooth. We stayed in the Grand Deluxe Room. It had the amazing view of Dubai Water Canal.
Grand Deluxe Room
Our Grand Deluxe Room was compact yet spacious. It was furnished with contemporary and minimalistic furniture. The Queen Size bed was comfortable.
The facilities in our room included:
• In-room safe
• Satellite Television
• High speed internet
• Air Conditioning
• Housekeeping Service
• Bottled water
• Coffee maker/tea service
• Iron box with ironing board
The bathroom had a bathtub as well as a shower area. All the essential toiletries like shower gel, soap, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste with toothbrush, body lotion etc were available in the room.
Our stay experience
Currently only two restaurants were operational- Cafe Delices and Al Waha Restaurant due to Covid restrictions. We had dinner and breakfast at Cafe Delices and we enjoyed both the meals.
We also used the Swimming Pool and Gym which were maintained perfectly. Health and safety precautions were taken care very well.
Our staycation at Gulf Court Hotel Business Bay was relaxing and comfortable. It provides great accommodation to both leisure and business travelers and also a good staycation spot for people living in the UAE.
