And it even has a swanky John Lewis homeware section…

Bad news for our wallets – Robinsons in Dubai Festival City has opened its doors, and it’s already shaping up to be one of our new go-to shopping spots.

If you’ve ever been to Singapore, you’re probably familiar with Robinsons – its flagship on Orchard Road is one of the shopping haven’s leading department stores. There’s also a branch in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The new Dubai location is said to be the largest department store in the Middle East, spread across three levels and 200,000 square feet, with more than 600 brands.

Ninety of these fashion and beauty brands are exclusive to Robinsons, including a 15,000 square-foot homeware section from upmarket UK brand John Lewis (you know, the one that does the Christmas advert every year).

The department store is a literal shopper’s paradise, with lush vertical gardens climbing up all levels. There’s also a new Wild & The Moon juice bar, where you can grab a matcha latte and chill out amongst the greenery after your shopping expedition.


Here are some of the brands you’ll struggle to find anywhere else in Dubai…
