A Magnificently Royal Hotel with Heavenly Fragrance

This royal hotel boasts of all the heavenly virtues one can think of on this planet. Based on the sea-beach this gives a panoramic view of the sea and its dancing waves and its constantly flowing sea-music.Rooms have a signature of luxury on all their aspects. Staff members are well behaved and cultured so guests are taken in an extremely high esteem. Staying even for a day will surely transform your being and metamorphosed your psyche.

Living up to the promise of a palatial experience

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

I just came back today from a 5 days 4 nights stay at Al Bustan Palace . What an experience ! From the time of check in and throughout the stay . Everything went smooth and flawless . The staff are so genuine , accommodating , friendly and always there to assist . The welcome amenities are so personalized for my kids , the breakfast is a brunch ! Where every taste bad is met if not exceeded . The pool and family facilities are second to none . Kids enjoy free kids buffet in the pool which I have never seen before ( mind you i do travel a lot and stay in many 5 stars hotels ), free ice creams Loli pops are served every day to help you cool off . What impressed so much is the omni presence of the hotel general Manager, a young lady who you can see every where every day talking to the guests , shaking hands with her employees . Now I know why the staffs are so engaging , happy and friendly. I will come back very soon coz i fell in love with this hotel .
