“Everything you need for a great stay in Dubai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2011

For the last twelve months I have been staying in Oasis Beach Tower situated in Jumeira Beach Residence (JBR), Dubai. I occupied a 2 bedroom apartment with a large balcony overlooking the Palm Jumeira and Atlantis Hotel in one direction and the Marina in the other direction. The apartment was large, spacious and extremely well equipped making this a very pleasurable experience. The main bedroom was very large with an enormous double bed, dressing area and an en-suite complete with walk-in shower cubicle. The second bedroom had two single beds and its own en-suite bathroom. Additionally, there was a ‘Maid’s Room’ which was effectively another single bedroom complete with its own wash/shower room. The kitchen was great and had just about every gadget necessary for a comfortable stay, including an ice bucket which was used on a regular basis to visit the ice machine on the 24th floor. With a well furnished living area comprising of 2 sofas, dining table, TV (also in each bedroom) and DVD player there was ample space and comfort for the family to relax when they came to visit. There were 5 of us staying here for a period of time and the apartment still offered space and comfort, it was superb.
As mentioned, Oasis Beach Tower is situated in JBR, which has a 1.7km promenade of shops, restaurants and cafes known as ‘The Walk’. Ideal for walking in the daytime or evening, there always seemed to be some activity or other going on. The beach is a stone’s throw away where most water sports are available.
In addition to this beach, there is also access to the private beach at Oasis Beach Tower’s sister property, Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa. Approximately a 20 minute drive away you can access golf, swimming pools and palm fringed beaches. There is a courtesy bus from Oasis Beach Tower running morning and afternoon and is a must for a great tanning day.
As you can imagine, over the year I have had a fair amount of engagement with the Management and Staff. I am pleased to say that I have always found them to be friendly, polite and extremely helpful. They have gone out of their way to make me, my family and friends feel very welcome and have helped in any way possible to make my/our stay as enjoyable and pleasant as possible. Thank you to everyone for a great year.

It was some years that I come to Dubai and I have lodged here always.

I returned yesterday and I can say only that it is without doubt the good place whether to lodge to Dubai.

I recommend it to everybody without any reserve.

I want to make a particular mention to Helen Giordano, front Office Manager, she is an exceptional person under all points of view and another note for Maher Abdullah, always available and smiling, as a true friend.

We traveled here from Bankok. We decided to stay over in Dubai for a couple of days on our way back to the UK.. This hotel was recommended through our travel agent(Travelbag). The apartment met all our expectations of friendlyness and good hospotality when checking in. The hotel is situated by the Dubai Marina, and has plenty of shops and restaraunt, from KFC, Mexican, Italian, French etc, so you don't have to walk far.

The size of the apartments is phenomenal; huge bedroom suites with big bathroom and dressing room; very large and spacious sitting room with sofas, dining table, flat screen TV; excellent fully fitted kitchen with microwave, American-style fridge, etc. The views are also tremendous, although the vista back to the marina is being slowly eradicated as new skyscrapers continue to be built and will I guess block out this view within the next year. Some other highlights in the room: the Lavazza coffee machine, the pre-stocked provisions (milk, orange juice, eggs, breakfast cereal, bread, jam, biscuits, tea, coffee, crisps), everything extremely clean and tidy; fantastic large, spacious gym with views over to the Palm Jumeirah and the Atlantis hotel. You will need to decide whether you want a balcony (which are on the rooms up to floor 42), or are happy without (in which case you get the highest rooms with the very best views).

OBT is also in a very good location on the Marina Walk; beach is less than 5 minutes away and there are lots of coffee shops and restaurants (Starbucks, Le Pain Quotidien, Chillis, On the Border, Italian Kitchen, etc etc) within easy walking distance. Great atmosphere on the Walk eg 9 pm on a Thursday evening when it was literally heaving.

Tips: there are two supermarkets very nearby – one on the ground floor between the two towers and then another (a better one) about 5 minutes away: turn left out the hotel entrance, cross to the next block, go up the stairs or lift to the plaza level and it is diagonally in front of you (this one is open 24 hours). Great choice of everything (other of course than alcoholic beverages).

The nearest metro station is a 25 minute walk away; from the station, walk along the busy main road for two blocks, then cross the marina, heading down towards the Ritz Carlton and the Towers are then just to the left. It isn’t the most pleasant of walks due to a fair amount of traffic plus building sites, but the view of all the surrounding skyscrapers is tremendous. The metro easily takes you to the Mall of the Emirates or Dubai Mall (or of course the airport), but it doesn’t run before 2 pm on Fridays. The fare to/from downtown, the Burj Al Khalifa or the airport is AED 6.50. Lovely smooth journey on an elevated track which affords super views of Dubai. Be sure to go and see the fountains at Burj Al Khalifa/Dubai Mall.

The shuttle busses from OBT are excellent. You can take them to all the main malls, the shuttles generally run two to three times a day. There is also a free shuttle to the sister property, called the Jebel Ali golf and spa hotel, which is about 20 to 30 minute drive time past Dubai Port, but very pleasant when you are there with lovely beach and outside seating area. There is also a shuttle once a day to the gold and spice souks in Deira.

Taxis: to/from the airport is about 30 minutes and 90 AED (take the metered taxi rather than the hotel ones). The Atlantis hotel at the end of the Palm is about 10 minutes away and 25 AED, the Madinat Jumeirah about the same. The minimum taxi fare, regardless of how short your journey, is AED10.

Of the nearby hotels, I liked the Ritz Carlton and the Sofitel the most; Le Royal Meridien has a great garden/beach area. Don’t bother with the marina, though.

The main negatives: to be honest, the customer service really isn’t that great at OBT. I got little sense of warmth or engagement from any member of the OBT team – even details such as being charged 8 AED to get a top-up of coffee in the room. The service can also be misleading – eg trying to book a shuttle bus and being told it was full when it wasn’t. At best the service can be described as functional. The hotel also lacks the “wow” style lobby and communal areas that many other top-rated properties have; the entrance in particular is very underwhelming – you go in through a very pre-dispossessing corridor, which certainly doesn’t do justice to the spaciousness of the rooms. The “security” member of staff – ie the person checking ids/room numbers at the foot of the elevator bank – does not give a welcoming and engaging feel, although to be fair one member of my party said she liked the feel of the additional security. Also, watch out for noise nearby – whether construction (even during the nights and at the weekends); noisy cars which think the Dubai Walk is some kind of motor racing circuit; the garbage collectors at 3 am every morning. Maybe these issues are not a problem if you are in a room on one of the highest floors. As others have commented, although the pool area is jolly nice, you have to move around to find sunshine given all the surrounding skyscrapers blocking the sun at various times of the day (and in any event, there will be no sun after about 3 pm due to it being blocked out). Lastly, the AED1500 security deposit on check in is a bit unusual for those who usually stay in hotels ..... but it seems to have worked out OK.

In conclusion: the sheer space and size of the rooms, together with being on the Walk, outweighs the negatives around service and long walk to the Metro .... I would recommend OBT and would stay here again very happily.

Dear Airlineconsultant,

Thank you for your sharing your feedback on TripAdvisor following your recent stay at Oasis Beach Tower.

It was a pleasure to read your very detailed and candid review of your stay at the hotel whilst visiting Dubai. I was most concerned to read your feedback, in relation to our customer service that you received at the hotel during your stay. We do endeavor to ensure that we offer a personalized service, which gives our guests the home away from home feel. I would like to sincerely apologise if there was a shortfall in this area, and it is not a true relation of the usual positive feedback that we receive regarding our service levels from our associates.

I am pleased to advise that due to guest feedback, the timings for the refuse collection have now changed to be later on in the morning.

The security deposit is calculated on the basis of Oasis Beach Tower being apartments rather than individual rooms. As the apartments are furnished to a very high specification, a deposit is taken and at the end of the stay refunded accordingly, which is normal practice within the local market.

I would like to thank you for your kind words relating to the size, cleanliness and location of the apartments, and I was pleased that you enjoyed our fantastic views.

Once again, thank you for taking the time to post your review on TripAdvisor, and we look forward to welcoming you back to Oasis Beach Tower in the future.


Yours sincerely,

William Harley-Fleming

It was our first visit to Dubai so all reviews were very helpful in deciding where to stay. All the staff at Virgin Holidays were most helpful and recommended we choose Oasis Beach Towers, we were so glad we took there advise.
The apartment we had was a superior 2 bed apartment, and had amazing views, very large clean and comfortable, and was serviced efficiently daily, with complimentary start up necessities, all the staff were most helpful, cheerful and polite, a credit to their employers!!
The only one item that we were annoyed about, was being asked to pay a security deposit, it was not about the payment, it was not being aware of being asked for an extra payment on arrival, perhaps this is commonplace with apartment holidays.

Just returned from Dubai where we stayed at Oasis Beach Towers. We were upgraded on arrival to the 39th floor. Views were amazing. Beach, sea, Tha Palm and Atlantis Palm!. There was a basic supply of food and drink supplied in thebeautiful and large kitchen and an hour later a lovely glass tray of fruit arrived for us.
The apaprtment itself was luxury beyond belief it was extrmelly spacious. There were 3 couples staying,bedrooms extrmelly spacious and we each had our own large bathroom with 'elemis' bath products ladies!!! There was also a fourth toilet and shower room. Worth 6*'

The staff in the hotel were also great, very accommodating with a natural warmth and always smiling. They could noy do enough for you. Thye even allowed us to use there phone to book various trips at no cost which was a bonus.

Location was also great it is situated on JBK walk which is the heart of uptown Dubai with the beach across the road and numerous restaurants ect on the doorsteps. Walking along there at midnight there is still a buss with people enjoying there time sitting outside having a meal or just walking.

One thing I would recommend is to but the'Entertainer Book' which you can get from any book shop. It has 2for 1 vouchers for numerous restaurants and trips. It cost £60 but on our first trip (Safari £50 a person - it saved us as a group £150 so we were already £90 saved) We must have saved at least £500 by using the book.

I can highly recommend the Oasis Beach Tower - we could find no fault with it or its staff at all. A pleasure to have stayed there
