UAE Hotel Rooms for a Family of Five

A fellow mum of 3 kids had sent me a message recently : ” I would absolutely love a blog of hotels that fit 3 kids without charging you double for interconnecting rooms ! ” So this listing – is for you, and all of us out here who have three little kids, aka a ‘Family of Five’- and looking for hotels in the UAE – Dubai, Ras al Khaimah and Abu Dhabi (for now..). Hopefully we will add more to this listing!

Kindly note that this is based on our personal experience, or when we stayed in the following hotels unless noted otherwise. Please check directly with the hotels for current details.

Hotels in Dubai

Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates 5*

There are a few chalets in Kempinski MOE and we had the chance to stay in one with the kids in tow. The entire design is unique, and very different to the usual resorts in the region, as it overlooks Ski Dubai itself. The chalet is built to mimic a ski resort – low ceilings, mock fireplace, giving it a very cosy feel.

  • Room type stayed : Duplex Aspen Ski Chalet
  • Room size : 76m2
  • Sleeping configuration :
    • Master Bedroom (Upper Floor) King Sized Bed – Mum & Dad plus 3 year old
    • Sofa Bed in Lounge – 5 and 7 year old
    • Additional cot in Master Bedroom – For 3 year old

Centara Mirage Beach Resort Dubai 4*

Centara in Deira Islands is one of few resorts that have bunk beds within their bedroom itself. Don’t be put off by it being a 4 star resort – it’s a resort built for families, with pools, splash pads, slides and even a confidence course for the older kids!

  • Room size : 42m2
