With Dubai summers reaching peak temperatures, the best way to escape is with an activity-fuelled staycation without any added hassle.

After recently opening in Dubai, 25hours Hotel One Central brings a quirky experience in the heart of the emirate with views overlooking the city’s impressive skyline.

As I was on the lookout for a quirky getaway, this all-in-one experience became the perfect escape combining elements of nomadism with a flair.

This staycation was undoubtedly packed with a host of global traditions in one venue and here’s why Emirates Woman suggests you should add it to your bucket list too.

Unwind in a quirky suite

25 hours hotel suite

Nothing about 25hours is conventional, particularly its nomadic-themed suites, each with its own individual flair. To be transported to nature, The Farmstay Suite offers features such as a double rainfall shower and a hammock to relax after a long stay. Meanwhile, the Artistic Village Suite is an invigorating space to get your creative juices flowing.  If you’re looking for something a bit extra, The Hakawati Suite, features two private bars, a photo booth, a double bathtub, a dance floor and a secret staircase leading to an expansive space for all your friends to gather. The most unique feature is the Sheikh trip-king-sized bed with a seamless view of the city’s skyline. For a summer retreat escape, guests receive a 40 per cent discount on the hotel’s best available rates when booking one of the suites for two nights or more until September 30, 2022.

A culinary journey

25 Hours Ernst

From freshly baked pretzels to authentic German dishes, Ernst Biergarten located within the hotel takes guests on a traditional journey. Without any dearth of entertainment, this must-visit spot features quiz nights, football screenings and live singing. This Bavarian banquet effortlessly mimics an old traditional pub in Germany with décor put together with fine attention to detail. With events such as Oktoberfest soon approaching, you know exactly where to visit next.

Hit the pool

25 Hours pool

If you’re looking to catch some sun, the pool at the hotel’s sixth-floor desk showcases unrivalled views of the Museum of the Future.

Record your own podcast

25 hours podcast

Plan on starting your own podcast? This venue offers its very own podcast studio to record the next inspiring idea you might have. With professionally-equipped mikes, guests can use their time wisely to create content in this inspiring space. Without limiting to podcasts, guests also have the option of mixing their own vinyl and perhaps recording the next best hit.

Stay productive in the co-working space

25 Hours Nomad bar

To ensure your work doesn’t take a backseat the hotel is packed with a plethora of co-working spaces including the Nomadic Bar. With freshly brewed coffees and an array of authentic desserts, visitors can dine and work all day in tranquillity. Situated in the heart of the hotel, this local barista is operated by one of Dubai’s most popular coffee houses, Nightjar Coffee. Without being limited to the coffee shop, guests can also work in different areas of the hotel including the common rooms and desks adjacent to the vinyl studio.


25 Hours spa

For some me-time, The Extra Spa offers a plethora of relaxing treatments and massages to rejuvenate for the week ahead. From express treatments to 60-minute full-body massages, there are a host of services for a luxurious escape. For a deep cleanse, the salt room is open for guests to use post their massage and to feel replenished from the inside out.

With the weekend known for brunches, the hotel’s authentic Indian restaurant, Tandoor Tina serves a variety of dishes with a playful British twist. Every Saturday from 1pm to 4:40 pm, visitors can dine with their friends and family with a host of flavourful dishes and mouth-watering cocktails. The non-alcoholic package starts at Dhs245, the house package is priced at Dhs345 and the bubbles package is at Dhs445.

While you walk in as a stranger, you walk out feeling just as much at home with the hotel’s friendly staff and simplicity. I couldn’t recommend a stay here more.
