Your next unconventional stay in Dubai? Right here in Form Hotel

There's no contest — every establishment that Design Hotels touches is a veritable swanky pad. Its slew of 300 hotels boast a forté of avant-garde architecture and bespoke furnishings triumphed with a design-driven ethos.

Now, they have made its foray into Dubai — partnering with Smartotels Hospitality by fronting a cool, uncharted design concept to the United Arab Emirates. Called Form Hotel, the 15-storey property is strategically located in the burgeoning Al Jadaf Culture Village and within close promixity to Dubai Design District, Dubai International Airport and the World Trade Centre.

Light and bright sets the main allure here. Staved from a studio-like structure (which relives the origins of Dubai's heritage), Form Hotel abides by a stark white façade and is marked by accoustically sensitive floor-to-ceiling windows. Inside, guestrooms are permeated with art deco-inspired furniture alongside custom-crafted art and photography by Nina Dietzel.

Apart from its groundbreaking aesthetics, the hotel also thrives on a wellness-focused concept. Guests can dig into wholesome menus crafted from sustainably sourced ingredients, while choosing from private yoga sessions to curated spa sessions. Fancy a swim? Their rooftop pool lets on stunning vistas of the glittering city. Not a shabby view, if you ask us.

This is a unique creative hotel offering that is unlike anything else in the region and presents a turning point for design-savvy travelers visiting Dubai," says Serdar Kutucu, Executive Vice-President Brand & Strategy of Design Hotels. 

Keeping with the design-driven theme, an array of tours are readily available to take you from Dubai's renowned art hubs to going off the grid on a journey, which incorporates the city's lesser known power structures. Enough said, consider us sufficiently enticed for an insightful trip to the Middle East.
