A very elegant and modern hotel, the Vida downtown ticks all the boxes for a business trip or vacation location for couples. I have stayed here multiple times and whilst the rooms are quite small they do have an aire of Dubai luxury about them and the hotel staff all very welcoming. Pool is small but nice to cool off...

It offers a level of service that is impeccably superb. Miss Kristina manages this particular outlet, a professionally friendly young lady that makes you feel like a close family... More

The décor is modern, yet has a homely feel. The staff are very nice, and friendly. The view of the pool from Stage 2 is very... More

I have stayed in many hotels and am a member of many guest programs but Vida accomplishes what the others only strive for - customer service.
