There are numerous 6 star hotels in Dubai even a 7 star. I simply entered this one which was very quiet. They don't mind you roaming the grounds. This shot was taken in Abu Dhabi.
The heat can be unbearable so try to visit during the winter months.
This was shot from a small bridge in a courtyard of a 6 star hotel. I was just walking around (not actually staying there) and thought this spot was beautiful. It was about 55 degrees that day and I had to take this shot fast. Photography was not enjoyable on days like this. You can even smell the oils in your hair literally cooking!
