ABOUT DOUBLE TREE BY HILTON RESORT, MARJAN ISLAND, RAK
Discover a stylish, beachfront base on luxurious Marjan Island at DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Hotel Marjan Island. Boasting an ideal location just one hour from Dubai; near RAK Free Zone, RAK Investment Authority Offices, this Marjan Island spa resort is perfect for business and leisure guests.
A much needed stay at the Double Tree By Hilton Resort, Al Marjan Island & Spa
From the moment we stepped into the lobby of Double Tree by Hilton we were blown away by the beauty and décor. Keeping up with Dubai’s tradition the lobby of this hotel is grand and glittering with striking decor. The opulence and refinement projected by Hilton hotels is something we are profoundly in awe of, and pointless to say we still reminisce the splendor of the resort.
Dubai can sometimes be a bit too overwhelming and chaotic for us, especially when we’ve been tremendously busy over the week. In such circumstances, we got an opportunity to experience a far more tranquil, soothing and peaceful property in UAE. Many thanks to Double Tree by Hilton for inviting us for an unforgettable experience.
Upon our arrival the team warmly welcomed us with the signature chocolate chip cookie at the check in. Our lovely host ‘Kashneet’ escorted us to our room while giving a little tour of the property.
On a private beach located at the edge of Marjan Island lies a stunning property with beautiful architecture and landscaping like no other. Double tree by Hilton is not just renowned for its splendid location at Marjan Island and luxurious vibe it projects, but also for the unique restaurants it nestled. We can’t help but look forward to tastings at this hotel; right from the entrance to the view and serenity of the beach – it all takes our breath away.
Once we were done with a little tour of the resort, we headed to their Vespa & Brasserie Restaurant at the Double Tree for our Friday Brunch.

Apart from having a great location an outstanding resort also needs to have some other characteristics as well, to make it a top choice for its customers. For us, that would be service, design, its rating and most importantly the feedback about the place from its most recent users. With that being said we were staying at the 5 star property which is top rated and highly recommended.
Our check in was in one of their Exclusive Bay rooms which has all the comforts, amenities and the luxuries which you will require during your stay.

The Bay Club is the epitome of relaxation and comfort at DoubleTree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island. These beachfront villas are located at the resort’s sea shore, offering a collection of 240 spacious and lavish 45 sq. m. king and double queen rooms.
