Raffles Dubai was listed among the world’s top hotels at Tripadvisor’s 2020 Travellers’ Choice Awards.
Winners are based on highest-rated stays from across its website from the past year, before the coronavirus pandemic.
The pyramid-shaped hotel adjoined to Wafi Mall is best known for its unique interior, which references both ancient Egypt and its Singaporean roots.
Opening in 2007, the Egyptian-themed hotel was the first Raffles to open outside of Asia.
The hotel’s signature pyramid shape was conceived by architect Bryn Lummus and developed locally by lead architects Arif & Bin Toak. The interior of the hotel was designed by the Dubai-based LW Design group.
Number one on Tripadvisor's list was Viroth’s Hotel in Siem Reap, Cambodia, which attracted glowing reviews for its 50s-inspired design, with polished cement and tiled floors.
