Le Meridian Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
In a town known for decadence, the five-star Le Meridian Mina Seyahi Beach Resort stands out for its all around excellence and good value among Dubai's luxury resorts. Built on a white sand private beach on the Arabian Sea, this Starwood property offers guests eight different restaurants and cafes, a kids' club, a spa, fitness and watersports centers, and, if you happen to be arriving by yacht, a 238-berth marina. Rates for stays in early January start around $600 per night.
