The city has been visited by Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian and Cristiano Ronaldo…

With its awesome architecture, picture-perfect beaches and (almost) year-round sunshine, Dubai has become one of the globe’s most-visited destinations and, naturally, is hugely popular with the world’s celebrities.

But where do celebrities stay when they visit Dubai? From pop stars stars such as Justin Bieber to reality TV royalty, Kim Kardashian and British actresses like Michelle Keegan, here’s six luxury Dubai hotels loved by celebrities.

It’s one of the most recognisable hotels in the world and attracts some seriously A-list celebrities. Kim Kardashian visited with Scott Disick in 2017 and they famously filmed a rather dramatic episode of their show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, at the hotel. Kardashian stayed in the colossal ‘Royal Bridge Suite’ and Disick was housed in the wow-worthy ‘Underwater Suite’ which has floor to ceiling windows onto the hotel’s aquarium.

When pop star Justin Bieber performed in Dubai back in May 2017, it wasn’t surprising that he opted to stay in the world’s only 7-star hotel – Burj Al Arab. Bieber posted a video to his Instagram of himself dancing on the lavish leopard print stairs in the luxury ‘Royal Suite’ at the hotel. Visitors to Zero Gravity were shocked when the A-lister showed up at the famed Dubai beach club’s ladies’ day during his visit to Dubai.

From its Instagrammable pool to swanky terrace, The Penthouse, and ultra-chic restaurants such as Maiden Shanghai (recently visited by Cristiano Ronaldo), this hotel is definitely one to make your Instagram followers envious.

The beautiful Jumeirah Al Naseem is just a stone’s throw away from Jumeirah Beach Hotel and Burj Al Arab. With lots of stunning bars and restaurants offering guests unparalleled views of Burj Al Arab, it’s no surprise that this is a celeb-favoured spot – even if just for that Instagram shot. Made in Chelsea alumni couple, Hugo Taylor and Millie Mackintosh have stayed a few times and on Taylor’s most recent visit, he snapped a shot at idyllic beachside bar, Shimmers.
