Everything You Need to Know About Somewhere Hotel

Somewhere Hotel Barsha Heights

The new Somewhere Hotel as just opening in Barsha Heights, and here’s your first look.

Located in the heart of Barsha Heights (also known as Tecom if you’re a Dubai baby), this is the 5th flagship hotel in the Somewhere chain to open worldwide.


The Hotel…

With 306 rooms and suites, I was invited down for the night to checkout what else it had to offer. As I walked through the hotel’s big glass sliding doors, I was met with a beautiful display of floating candles, fresh flowers, bottomless glasses of bubbly, canapés and the accommodating staff of Somewhere Hotel – it was the opening night, so they’d put on quite the soirée. Overall, the modest 4* hotel is contemporary, well situated and not too pricey.

The Room…

From the huge, double king sized bed, so the super sleek and oh so Instagrammable monochrome interiors, I was so impressed with our room. Your bathrooms will also be very well decked out with ever toiletery you could need, including razors, toothbrushes and sewing kits, as well as the standard shampoo and conditioner line up. I think what I was most happy to find, were huge, fluffy, crisp white dressing gowns – yaaass! I mean, dressing gowns pretty much make or break a hotel stay for me.

Dinner at Nay…

This Middle Eastern slash Mediterranean hotspot is the hotel’s main dining restaurant. We headed up to enjoy the set menu that had been put together for the evening. If you ever visit Nay, the must-try dishes are the crispy dynamite shrimp, chicken roll with caramelised onion and harina sauce, mini kibbehs, beef tenderloin and wild mushroom and truffle risotto.

Drinks at The Clavichord…

Adjacent to Nay is Somewhere’s music lounge-cum-bar, which boasts a live band from 8.30pm till 12.30am, indoor and outdoor seating and giant cocktails (get the strawberry margarita).

The Breakfast…

Whilst I was initially upset to find they don’t serve pork (or smoked salmon) at the breakfast buffet, I soon filled up on fresh pain au chocolat, watermelon juice, mini packages and fresh fruit. If you’re visiting in the cooler months, they also have a lovely outdoor terrace where you can enjoy your morning coffee and croissants.

The Facilities…

Head up to the roof of Somewhere Hotel and you’ll find a gym, spa and pool. Make sure to get up there early though, the pool area is small and seats are limited, so you’ll be subject to sit on the floor or in the shade if you don’t bagsy and good spot!
