The Novotel World Trade Center – A perfect staycation weekend getaway.

Albeit fancier hotels garner greater footfalls in Dubai, there are family-friendly deals hidden in the city that offer a great option to sate your staycation needs. Imagine my surprise when I found out that the dedicated business hotels, which usually cater to corporate clientele through the weekdays, afford a swanky and homely escape for weekend travelers and those looking to lift their feet up and relax. Luckily for me, I was able to book me and my family a lovely little getaway at the Novotel World Trade Center Hotel. 

Important criteria that need to be checked off my list when considering a family staycation include choosing between hotels that can accommodate five people in their rooms/suites. Proximity to attractions and shopping centers in and around the area is also on that list. Novotel ticks all these boxes in that they are centrally located and offer budget-friendly family suites that accommodate four to five persons with a decent range of amenities. The rooms also come with adjoining doorways, allowing for larger groups to stay connected during their stay at the hotel.


Start your morning with a continental spread, or a full English breakfast in Entre-Nous Restaurant, their all-day dining restaurant. Once your bellies are full, head on over poolside and enjoy signature cocktails and light meals from Chills Pool Bar. The pool is perfect for families, offering a spacious outdoor setting. Take advantage of their dedicated kids’ play station equipped with toys for your little angels, while you pamper yourself at their in-house spa and wellness center. Spend the evening listening to live music performances, or head on out into the city to enjoy the nightlife.

The suite itself includes a dining and living space, and you also get a separate powder room. The beds and bathrooms are comfortable and welcome with open arms all those that have had a long day at work or sightseeing! The staff go out of their way to be polite and exceed expectations when it comes to the question of service, right from the staff at the check-in counter, to the bell boy, to the cashier. I commend their effort in making your staycation a comfortable one!
