Hotel Hotspot: SO/ Uptown Dubai elevates luxury living 

Perfect for couples, this trendy new property is the place to see and be seen.

Towering above the evolving landscape of the new Uptown Dubai district, SO/ Uptown Dubai beckons as a sartorial sanctuary, a testament to the avant-garde design and creative luxury championed by the global SO/ Hotels collection. Having graced the global scene since 2011 through collaborations with fashion icons like Benny Castles, Christian Lacroix, Guillaume Henry and Kenzo Takada, SO/ Hotels has become synonymous with pushing the boundaries of design and luxury. In Dubai, this 340-meter architectural marvel melds design-led rooms, destination dining, indulgent facilities, and breathtaking skyline views.

The challenge of finding the entrance of SO/ Uptown Dubai is apparent. However, once located, the six-floor ascent to the lobby is a prelude to the courteous reception awaiting guests. Inside, SO/ Uptown Dubai exudes a vibrant and elegant atmosphere, in line with the brand’s fashionably tropical green vibe. Geometric patterns and subtle nods to Greek mythology infuse a sense of fun into the sophisticated setting.

Uptown Dubai

The staff ensures a seamless check-in process while offering insights into the myriad offerings within the hotel. SO/ Uptown Dubai boasts 188 luxurious rooms and suites, combining fashion-forward aesthetics with indulgent elements. We stay in the Atelier Suite – accommodating up to three people – which reveals a spacious living area adorned with artistic wooden panels and funky artwork, creating a visually stimulating environment. A powder room offers privacy to any guests who visit you during your stay.

As you venture deeper, a large bathroom, complete with a tub and innovative design elements, epitomises seamless luxury. The well-lit cupboards, dressing area with extra lights, and a king-size bed offer practicality and comfort. Floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the suite provide panoramic views of Ain Dubai, JLT, Jumeirah Islands, and a partial glimpse of Dubai Marina.

The Citronelle Club

Dining at SO/ Uptown Dubai is a diverse experience, from the breakfast served a la carte at Uptown Brassiere to the bold flavours of Pan-Asian cuisine at The Citronelle Club. The hotel also boasts venues like the soon-to-open Celeste, offering upscale dining and a Parisian-Pigalle flavour amidst live music and entertainment.

Beyond gastronomy, Lazuli pool and terrace sets the stage for sun-soaked relaxation and party vibes. The hotel also has a fully equipped gym, the must-visit Uptown Spa by SO/, and the newly opened LaLoge salon, known for styling Mariah Carey before her recent Abu Dhabi gig.

SO/ Uptown Dubai provides a perfect escape from the city’s hustle and bustle, offering a blend of relaxation and vibrant energy. Whether you’re seeking a lively party atmosphere or a day luxuriating in a cosy room or at the spa, this chic city retreat offers the ideal weekend staycation for those craving a touch of luxury. While it may not be suitable for the little ones, it’s an ideal haven for couples looking to elevate their getaway experience.
