If you enjoy the cityscape along with five-star service and a sociable, no-fuss environment, this is your abode. The boutique hotel in the heart of City Walk, one of Dubai’s best shopping destinations, is distinctively low rise compared with the city’s plethora of imposing hotel structures. A luxe-casual atmosphere and modern interiors along with a unique location, make La Ville the perfect destination for young couples and families who don’t desire the fuss of taxiing to and from their hotel, with most amenities on the doorstep. Some 77 spacious rooms, 11 suites and 68 apartments are minimally decorated in neutral tones with floor-to-ceiling windows, marble counter tops, a freestanding bathtub and walk-in shower. A small selection of restaurants (more reasonably priced we feel) allow guests to choose from prime cuts and seafood cooked to their liking in a Josper oven, at Graze gastro grill, with outdoor seating area looking onto City Walk’s streets. Grapeskin is a standalone wine bar and kitchen with a sociable menu of sharing dishes, cheeses and charcuterie. Wine can be paired to suit your mood offering playful, quirky touches and beverage options; from ‘punch’ crushed and prepared in-house, infused mixes and exclusively produced Eau de Vie’s. The courtyard offers a charming and comfortable setting during cooler months, serving shisha. There’s also rooftop bar LookUp, open from 6pm onwards overlooking the hotel’s infinity pool and jaw-dropping skyline.

CP Tip: For breakfast, opt for the awesome, freshly made pancakes and chocolate waffle at Chival…you know you want to.
