Here is my first experience at Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown during my second visit to Dubai.
Aaaaand I’m back in Dubai! I’ve been to Dubai before, but it’s so beautiful there that you always want to go back. Moreover, this time my visit is more memorable and meaningful because I organized a meeting with my readers here (thank you all so much! I am really grateful to meet you all!)
This meeting wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for the Indigo Dubai Downtown Hotel who hosted me for 2 days and 1 night and allowed me to meet here.
About Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown
Guess what? Hotel Indigo in the center of Dubai is the 1st 5-star boutique hotel in Dubai WITH an art gallery! How great, right? It’s like staying in a hotel without being bored because of its art gallery and other hotel highlights!
We only stayed at Hotel Indigo for 2 days and 1 night (as we only had a layover in Dubai), so it’s definitely not enough. BUT, I am very grateful to be able to share with you my wonderful experience with them – from the friendly staff to the delicious food and lavish rooms, everything about Hotel Indigo is great!
Rooms at Hotel Indigo
We stayed in the Junior Suite for 1 night and it was amazing! The rooms at Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown have a culturally inspired design, plus a lavish bathroom that is very spacious. Our room was really luxurious and spacious, the glass wall made it even better as the view outside is absolutely stunning!
Even though we only stayed for the night, we still got a chance to swim, haha! Make sure you always take time to relax! It’s also hard to resist swimming in the pool because it was hot when we visited Dubai (it was almost summer season in the Middle East during our visit.)
Art tours and exhibitions at Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown
As I mentioned above, the hotel has an Art Tours and Exhibits art gallery. There are over 200 pieces of art for you to see! It was created to introduce guests to the art, design, stories and history of the hotel. Even if you’re not into art and exhibitions, a detour here is worth the time.
Unfortunately we couldn’t visit here as we only had very limited time. But at least we still have a good reason to come back!
Restaurant in the hotel
There are two dining options to choose from; Open Sesame and Off the Wall. Open Sesame is a restaurant while Off the Wall is a bar.
Sesame, open up
At Open Sesame, you’ll be able to choose from a wide variety of Mediterranean-inspired cuisine. They also have coffee at Café Rider Custom Roastery which offers the best locally roasted specialty coffee in Dubai.
From the wall
If you like bars and lounges, then go to Off the Wall. It’s a cocktail bar inspired by the culture clash of nearby Al Satwa. A wealth of drinks with a touch of traditional flavor can be enjoyed here while looking at beautiful artworks by local artists.
Some other bars and lounges you can visit:
- Orange Feels Bar and Shisha Lounge
- Bakala Jooos Juice Bar and Concept Store
“It’s good to be back. That was my thought when I arrived in Dubai. It’s a new version of me, so it feels like a new adventure in the same place but in a different time. I met new amazing people and stayed in a wonderful and first 5 star boutique hotel in Dubai, what more could I ask for? Hmm, maybe more time? Ha-Ha! I only stayed in Dubai for a few days so I must be back soon! Hopefully you can visit Dubai too, and when that time comes, don’t forget to book your stay at Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown. Hi!
