As a fam­ily-friendly ho­tel group we are pro­vid­ing ex­cel­lent fa­cil­i­ties for a com­fort­able fam­ily stay in Dubai. It con­sists of spa­cious suites with a well-de­signed liv­ing room in­clud­ing three dif­fer­ent ar­eas – din­ing area, fun and rest area and work­ing area. Fea­tur­ing an en­closed kitch­enette and pri­vate bal­cony all our suites are de­signed in four dif­fer­ent de­sign styles to match even the most so­phis­ti­cated taste from Cal­i­for­nian to Mod­ern, Clas­sic and Mediter­ranean style.

Glo­ria Ho­tel and Yas­sat Glo­ria Ho­tel & Apart­ments are packed with en­ter­tain­ment op­tions for our youngest guests. The ded­i­cated and ex­pe­ri­enced staff at our kids clubs makes sure that the kids are hav­ing fun, learn­ing and en­joy­ing their time in a safe and welle­quipped en­vi­ron­ment. The first two hours of the en­ter­tain­ment pro­gramme are al­ways free and our guests can enjoy games on the play­ground, swim­ming, col­or­ing, henna, face paint­ing, arts, crafts and video games. For our guests’ con­ve­nience, babysit­ting ser­vice is also avail­able.

Par­ents can in­dulge in the re­lax­ing at­mos­phere at the SPA stu­dio or de­light in the views over Dubai by the pool with a cold bev­er­age from our pool bar.

With a wide va­ri­ety of din­ing out­lets in­clud­ing in­room din­ing we strive to pro­vide the best din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with cui­sine from all around the world. Our sig­na­ture restau­rants — The Av­enue and La Ter­rasse — have one of the best theme nights se­lec­tion in the city in­clud­ing Asian, Ara­bian, Seafood night and Steak night to sat­isfy the crav­ings of the most dis­cerned food lover.

Our close prox­im­ity to the metro sta­tion is a key ad­van­tage to at­tract­ing the fam­ily groups from CIS mar­ket. It pro­vides quick con­nec­tion to any area in Dubai and the most pop­u­lar land­marks. One of the most pop­u­lar com­pli­men­tary ser­vices in our ho­tels is the com­pli­men­tary shut­tle bus, which is a great way to ex­plore Dubai on a bud­get. We pro­vide free pickup and drop-off ser­vice to Jumeirah open beach and Bur­ju­man shop­ping cen­tre three times daily. Dubai Out­let Mall and Dubai Ma­rina walk, as some of the most pop­u­lar tourist des­ti­na­tions, can also be reached via bus from our ho­tels.

Hav­ing one of the big­gest in­ven­to­ries on the ho­tel apart­ments mar­ket we are proud to an­nounce that we have re­ceived a 4-star ho­tel clas­si­fi­ca­tion for Yas­sat Glo­ria Ho­tel & Apart­ments. We have al­ways been ded­i­cated to ex­ceed our guests’ expectations, thus, the 4-star li­cense proved that our ser­vice qual­ity is well de­served and will even set our stan­dards higher.

We have launched our new group ho­tel web­site which com­bines all seven Glo­ria Ho­tels group prop­er­ties un­der one do­main and cap- tures all their specifics to pro­vide an en­joy­able and en­gag­ing on­line ex­pe­ri­ence. It has been de­signed and de­vel­oped to pro­vide an op­ti­mal view­ing ex­pe­ri­ence — easy read­ing, nav­i­ga­tion and book­ing across the widest range of de­vices from desk­top com­puter to mo­bile phone.

2015 is a very suc­cess­ful year for Glo­ria Ho­tels and Re­sorts so far. De­spite the down­fall of the CIS mar­ket we have strength­ened our part­ner re­la­tions by the end of 2014 and be­gin­ning of 2015. We are ex­pect­ing good amount of busi­ness by the end of this year due to the sched­uled char­ter flights from CIS and Baltic coun­tries. We are also fo­cus­ing on mar­kets like Ger­many, In­dia and Tur­key to close the gap from first quar­ter of 2015.
