Editor's Pick: Revier Dubai - A taste of the Swiss Alps in the heart of Business Bay

A new, and Swiss-inspired kid on the blocks of Dubai’s fast evolving Business Bay, is a gem that without a shadow of a doubt, takes its guests from the desert dunes of the Middle East to the cool mountainous regions of Switzerland – except without having to leave the city. Revier Dubai exudes youthfulness, vibrance and cosy appeal, tuning one’s senses to a spirit of adventure, juxtaposed with a determined need for connectivity in one of the most innovative cities in the world. Travel Essence Magazine had the opportunity to experience this property, and there were many takeaways to have us looking forward to our return…

A stay in Dubai denotes multicultural experiences that elevate shared ideas and a celebration of life. Everything is fast and exuberant, and so when a new hotel welcomes its first guests, there is a challenge to explore the offering, perhaps creating memories beyond the rudimentary chat over a coffee or a cocktail. Revier Dubai, recently opened, conveniently located a stone throw away from Dubai Canal, and short drive from landmarks Dubai Mall and the Burj Khalifa, is a place where you will instinctively feel good from the moment you check in. Friendly engaging staff usher you into a space reminiscent of a luxurious mountain lodge or log cabin, except you are in the city, where rolling sand dunes form its periphery.

A retreat within the city

With a distinctively vibrant touch, Revier Dubai combines comfort and modernity without compromising on the brand’s Swiss roots. Tech savvy amenities, chic co-working spaces, a rustic, industrial space inspired design aesthetic, all welcome guests to cosy yet functional spaces perfect for every type of guest.

The Revier brand takes pride in its Swiss heritage, with service excellence an illustration of the passion that drives ambition to award guests a memorable experience in the most honest and purest way possible. From the design of the hotel all the way to your bed-side lamp, everything has been crafted to inspire modern nomads to script their experiences and connect with others during their stay.

Guests can choose between homely 25sqm spaces, interconnected rooms perfect for families and Revier Suites, which award more space with separate living, work and play areas, spacious bathrooms with walk in showers and bathtubs. Whatever your needs are in room size, there’s a suitable type within the walls of Revier Dubai to make your stay comfortably convenient.

The Revier Dubai experience is very much in tune with current trends in hospitality that caters to the young and upwardly mobile traveller, a future-ready brand encounter that maintains Swiss efficiency, push the boundaries of the unconventional, while providing the usual refined and high-quality service you deserve. Everything is as simple as it gets, personalised and original, taking great care to ensure guests stay and leave having had their expectations met.
