There are many quantifiers that make a hotel truly private. To some it’s the location, nestled away in some distant corner, far from the hustle and bustle of the pulsating city. To others, privacy is synonymous with romance, a level of enchantment to share with a loved one amidst an amorous atmosphere. Some still equate privacy to basking in the exclusivity of a luxury suite, not having to leave your four walls if you don’t want to. 

Whatever your definition of privacy is, Dubai seeks to provide it. We’ve collated a list of the most private hotels Dubai has to offer, so you can experience this Middle Eastern jewel in total comfort.
