I liked it but it's not close to the city which is a schlep for some.

So the plan is to stay in Address Marina for shabbos and then move hotels for 3 nights

Debating though where to stay as there a million and 1 hotels..

Don't need a beach
a good spa would be a plus

Address Sky view Downtown  and  Address Palace Downtown were the two i was looking at  - any reason one over the other?
Ruled out Armani (didnt seem that special) and Bvlgari (expensive)

Let me know why yes and why not or if you have a different recommendation?


Thanks!

For next time when its more focused on the relaxation. This trip we want to be more in the center and being that we are only there for a few days seems to make the most sense

I had an amazing stay at the Ritz. Very central location, I didn't use the spa but it looked amazing, beachfront, phenomenal service, nice upgrade, everything you could want.

Just as a warning, armani is booked out until end of year for kosher restaurant. Elis is not picking up any calls and not replying to messages... it seems they are not able to handle the volume, so if you going to dubai dont think it will be easy to have kosher food

That's the feedback I've also received.
The guys from hul mehudar advised last week to bring your own food since armani is packed (and expensive) and the caterers are struggling due to limited capacity

If you've always wanted to go to Dubai and support a good cause at the same time, and have $15-$30k to spare:
