  1. I love the design including the open courtyards. I would much rather stay at a place like this than a skyscraper hotel that doesn’t have any distinguishing features. The lavender drink sounds delicious, and that breakfast is making my mouth water!

  2. What a unique and interesting place to stay! I love the zig zag maze like courtyard, and it is so neat how they will give you a tour and history of the property when you check in.

  3. Wow the Chedi Al Bait Sharjah looks beautiful. We have yet to visit the UAE but I have been a bit shy because it looks so modern and flashy like Las Vegas or Singapore. Not that there is anything wrong with those cities, it is just I prefer old style. But it looks like the Chedi Al Bait Sharjah combines both modern with historical so this is a perfect balance. That Chedi Grand Patio Suite sounds amazing and I love the room overall. I think my wife would love exploring the Library too. I have to say that their lighting at night was gorgeous

  4. This looks like such a lovely property. I never thought about how constructing corridors like that would help keep you cool! All the snacks and food they provide look so delicious and the hotel is beautiful lit up at night. I love the idea of being transported back to the time of Arabian nights!

  5. Wow what a lovely property. I love their attention to the minutest details. Lots of open area to sit around. Their gesture of taking guests for a tour around the hotel is a lovely marketing gesture.

  6. What a piece of luxury! Your room looks really nice. I think I will sit and take pictures at every nook. Hehe… I like that they provide private tour to introduce the history of the hotel to its customer. That’s really nice. And I wonder if they provide a map of the hotel in every room though. Seems like you can easily lost when wandering around.

  7. Wow! This is wonderful. I am so amazed on how they built it (just like you mentioned) it was designed so direct hot winds won’t enter. It’s cool that they will give you a tour around before they take you to your room.

    The room looks adequate and really nice. Love the lighting as it adds to the nice ambience.

    Happy to know too that they have lots of choices (international) during breakfast. Will keep this in mind should we get a chance to visit.

  8. Classy hotels in UAE are popular for their luxurious setting and service! Chedi al bait seems to be one of those higher end hotels with a lot of attractions for the customers. I like the touches of Arabic heritage in the various decor and architecture of the hotel. I will definitely look it up while in Sharjah next. 🙂

  9. Wow Chedi Al Bait definitely looks very luxurious and I would totally love to stay this amazing hotel when I am in Sharjah next time. I really liked the ambience and the heritage look of the rooms. I visited Sharjah only for a day from Dubai and unfortunately I could not stay there for longer. I really loved the vibes of the place and I will plan for visiting it again the next time I am in Dubai.

  10. The Chedi Al Bait Sharjah looks like a great luxury option if we return to Dubai. I love all the small courtyards and sit out areas around the property. The property looks magical after dark. Good that you were able to have access to the pool – even if you did need to book ahead right now.

  11. I love the layout and décor of The Chedi Al Bait Sharjah, so different from traditional hotel properties. I’m impressed guests are met with a Lavender cooler drink and a tour of the property. I can imagine myself relaxing in one of the sit outs after a long day of sightseeing. Thank you for introducing me to this property

  12. I liked the virtual tour of Chedi Al Bait, Sharjah. Wow, what a luxurious resort and what an interesting combination of styles! I like the traditional carpets and furniture and mixed with the comfort of a modern, contemporary bed. It must have felt like heaven sleeping there!

  13. Wow, the Chedi Al Bait Sharjah is breathtaking! I’d love to have a drink and take in the beautiful surroundings. Especially love all the options for outdoor seating.

  14. What a beautiful slice of paradise! This looks like the idea hotel to relax in. I love the attention to detail with the service that is provided. The little touches such as the welcome drinks and the sweets in the room are the small things that add up to create the luxurious feel. Thanks for sharing this gem with us!

  15. Oooh Yukti this looks like an incredible place to stay! I’d far rather stay somewhere like this than one of the big soulless hotels in a skyscraper – it oozes character! The courtyards look like pleasant places to relax, especially at night when things are cooler.

    1. I too love a place with some uniqueness and some theme. Love such places where we can feel it instead of just spending a night.
