Being a part of the Taj Group of Hotels, where no two properties are the same and range from palaces to beach resorts to business hotels, yet have a similar underlining Taj trademark, the Taj Dubai too blends in modern luxury with traditional Indian craftsmanship. Set up for business and leisure travellers, the sleek exterior is a contemporary design and gives way to the classic lobby set up. White paneled walls, a glimmering chandelier and brass accents are the primary features that attract the attention of guests as they enter, which is further accented by the backlit sandstone lattice screen backdrop at the reception. The lattice screen adds familiarity to the lobby since it has its place at a lot of other Taj properties. The overall color theme speaks of subtle royalty and elegance with its toned palette.

The rooms are spacious and have different ranges of opulence and auspiciousness – from regular club rooms, to junior suites, to luxury suites. The Presidential Suite and the Maharaja Suite are the crème de la crème of the hotel, each having its own charm focusing on different luxuries. If going by traditional Taj standards, guests can expect something on the lines of this, this or this. Every room is decorated in artwork that strikes a balance between Indian and local cultures that are complimented by pure fabrics and linens. The corridors all through the hotel are adorned with handicrafts on specially commissioned ancient government mint paper to enhance the Indian hospitality trademark.
