district: Culture Village
Moving away from the cookie-cutter luxury properties that have defined Dubai’s hospitality scene in recent years, FORM Hotel is a breath of fresh air for a city whose industry could very well be on the turn.
Catering to that well-travelled, style-savvy digital nomad, the property offers an individual, authentic, localised experience, but takes it a step further with curated list of amenity, service and experience add-ons that include architecture or food tours, basics like bathrobes, or luxuries such as private butlers and turndown services.
The design, by global outfit Architecture-Studio doesn’t stray from the brand’s concept, with an understated, low-key look featuring bespoke furnishings in muted timber, brushed brass and marble.
Located in the city’s Culture Village, downtown Dubai, with its profusion of shops and restaurants, is a 10-minute drive away, but if you’re looking to stay in, the hotel’s restaurant serves an all-day healthy menu with dishes like the zen bowl with quinoa, avocado and rocket.
