“Outstanding - probably the best in Dubai at present. (Jan 08)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2008

We (family of four) have stayed in what are probably the best two Hotel Apartments in Dubai in the last 6 weeks, the new Emirates Marina and the Oasis Beach Tower, so it's interesting to compare the two.

I'm actually sitting in our apartment on the 47th floor of the Oasis Beach Tower as I write this looking out over the Marina and the beach (using the free internet connection provided in the apartment).

The Superior 2 bedrooom apartment is sensational. Very spacious, very well fitted out with almost everything you could need. There is some construction nearby, as there is almost anywhere along the beachfront in Dubai at the moment, but it is inaudible from the apartment which is a relief (we stayed at the Emirates Marina last month and it was very noisy - construction starts before dawn!).

A major plus for the Oasis apartments is little things like a complimentary tray of basic foodstuff (breakfast cereal, bread, jam, chocolate, pasta and jar of sauce, coffee, teas and sugar), a bowl of fresh fruit and milk (UHT), orange juice and butter in the fridge. These few things are enough to get you started when you first arrive (we arrived at 4am). They do also have a limited 24 hour room service menu. There was also a box of washing powder to use in the front load washing machine in the apartment.

Another really helpful service is a free supermarket shopping service with a check list of basic goods in the apartment. There is not a supermarket in sight so it would probably require a car/taxi trip to do it yourself. The Oasis does also keep some basic items on the premises, but not fresh food/milk.

Oasis apartment guests have free use of the Oasis Hotel which is beach front, located directly opposite the entrance to the apartment tower. The hotel has pools, incl 1-2 or small children, a private beach and water sports, tennis court, sauna, and possibly other facilities which we didn't notice. The hotel also has several restaurants and is very child friendly. The hotel restaurants seem to be of a good standard and reasonably priced with good service. There is a also a Marco Pierre White restaurant in the ground floor of the appt tower.

To sum up, the Oasis Beach Tower Apartments (at least the one we stayed in) is not only cheaper than the nearby Emirates Marina Apartments, is also better in terms location, facilities, quieter and the management are more thoughtful.

I have not stayed in many places that live up to the Oasis Beach Tower's standard. Firstly upon arrival we were checked in smoothly without any fuss and were shown to our room. Well, what can i say, the apartment was amazing. It was tastefully decorated and made the most of the sunlight which beamed through the windows. We were on the 30th floor and the view was great, we looked over Jumeriah beach and the Palm. Although a building close to the tower was in the final stages of construction it did not seem to bother us. We had a two bedroom apartment which was more space than we needed! The apartment was massive.
The pool deck on the tower is luxurious, with two pools and two hot tubs which all can be used. One was heated and this was needed as in the afternoon the pool became shaded. Also there is annother building under construction behind the tower, this meant that we had a crane to wathch while sunbaving!
Guests are allowed to use the Oasis Beach Hotel's facilities, honestly i was expecting a bit more from this hotel. It seemed dated and quite tacky. Although we enjoyed the resturants the pool at the beach hotel was packed and every space was filled with a sun lounger.
We ventured out nearly every night and took a taxi quite frequently to the Marina Walk. This was a great place to eat and relax with many options for a good meal. I would not reccomend the Chinese as it made me ill one night ! You cannot walk anywhere as alot of the roads are being worked on, but the taxis are very cheap and efficient.
Overall i would reccomend the Tower to any visitors to the city. We had a wounderfull stay but be aware that there is a lot of construction underway in Dubai. I think most people (like us) wouldn't find it a problem.

I have just returned from a 1 week visit to Oasis Beach Towers. Booked again through Best at Travel.

Flight: BA105/104. Not impressed at all. Seats are so squashed together especially if the passenger in front hits the recline…get ready to limbo! Food was awful. I am sticking to Emirates in future.

Seven of us booked into a 3 bed deluxe. Upgraded to a 4 bedroom, and checked in by 8am. This could not have been better. The 4 bedroom apartments actually have an additional maid’s room, so you have 5 bedrooms and 6 useable toilets check out the website for floor plans at [--] These apartments are superbly presented, with quality furniture, fixture and fittings. 42” Flat screen TV in the main lounge, smaller one in main bedroom, internet connection, DVD, CD, coffee maker, well equipped kitchen with ALL utensils and Washing/Drying facilities. You also get a complimentary breakfast pack on arrival with milk and bread in the fridge. If you need anything else tick a supplied list and they bring it for you from the local supermarket.

We went over Xmas break and weather was a decent 25-27c. You will need some long sleeves for late evenings and as normal dress appropriately in the air conditioned malls. Breakfast (up to 11am) is taken at the Oasis Beach Hotel lower floor (Bazaar), which is a short walk from the towers. We did eat at Oregano - a Mediterranean farmhouse restaurant which was fine. The pools at the OBT were literally unoccupied during our stay. Construction is everywhere in Dubai, and the adjacent Jumeirah Beach Residence is nearing completion. We took a walk down the beach past The Ritz-Carlton and LRM and towards The Habtoor Grand. The ongoing offshore construction down the far end is getting a bit noisy and is affecting the sea views of these hotels. The OBT does have its own fixed rate taxi. This is ok for transporting 7 people as you need 2 taxis which works out more. Cost is 50 AED to Mall of Emirates, and quoted 95AED to Meena Bazaar.. Just be careful as a single taxi ride an be cheaper. The OBH do run a free shuttle service periodically throughout the day which is well worth taking advantage of.

It was interesting to know that the cleaner told us the dated OBH is earmarked for demolition next year. In Dubai terms this is now a “dated” hotel, and will make way for a luxury hotel with more floors. Some members are sometimes upgraded on arrival to the OBT…take it gladly. You will get the advantage of a quality spacious apartment with additional room(s) and a kitchen!

Taxi Rides: Ibn Battuta Mall15 dirhams away, Mall of Emirates 25 dirhams, Bur Dubai 50 dirhams and Marina Walk (Spinneys) 7 dirhams.


Went to the Spice Souk this time, and this is worth a visit. The inner streets contain quite a few sports shops, and some will allow you to purchase goods at wholesale cost. Copy football kits/trainers/ boots etc. We took the Abra water taxi across to Meena Bazaar (1 Dirham per person!)

Overall worth going over Christmas, but as many know for accommodation this is one of the peak times in Dubai. If you want the 5 star luxury of an hotel apartment, you can't go wrong with this one.

Hi All

Myself and my husband have just returned from a week at Oasis Beach Tower. We were very fortunate to be upgraded to the tower as we had booked the hotel. We were given a two bedroom apartment for two of us and it was superb. The lounge is huge and also has a flat screen TV. There is a seperate kitchen with all you need, large oven, hob, dishwasher, fridge freezer, coffee machine and washer drier. We only used the coffee maker as the meals out were great.
The bedrooms were great the master bedroom had two queen beds together, sheets big enough to cover them both with two duvets, also another flat screen TV. It had an ensuite plus dressing area, the en suite had a seperate shower, bath with shower over it , toilet, bidet and wash hand basin.
The second bedroom which we did not use had two beds(seperated) and an en suite, it had a bath with shower over it, toilet and wash hand basin. There was also a seperate area that has a wet room, shower toilet and washand basin, and outside this was a room for keeping cases and also a drying area.
Near the front door was also a seperate toilet and wash hand basin. In total there were 4 toilets and 4 showers( for 2 of us).
The fridge when we arrived was stocked with loads of water, sparking and still, lots of different soft drinks also smoked salmon,pate,bread and I cannot remember the rest.
We were also supplied with coffee, tea, chocolate,sweets,pasta and sauce which we were told was all complimentary. The water was always re stocked as was the coffee.
We also had an area on the 33rd floor that we could go to at any time to get Tea coffee soft drinks or sandwiches. We could also have a continental breakfast on this floor or go to the hotel for a full breakfast( we had booked in half board).
Because we had booked in as club class we were entitled to use the computers on various floor free of charge, this was good to keep in touch with home.
I would recommend this hotel to anybody even when it is in the middle of a building site.
The taxis were cheap to go anywhere and the mall I would recommend is Madinat, also the gold and spice souks. The rest of the malls are the same as we see at home, and also the same sort of prices.
We will definately be going back.
