Above: A new face on Dubai’s Deira corniche.
It would be a difficult case to argue that Dubaiâ€™s hotel scene lacks color, but the recently opened HUES Boutique Hotel in the city stateâ€™s northeastern Deira Corniche has gathered together so many neon shades it makes many of the Emirateâ€™s other hotels feel sallow and dull by comparison. Straying from the conventional blue, for example, HUES has elected to install a luminous green swimming pool on its terrace.
This is not to say that the property has aimed for a sense of fun and ended up with something garish or overstated. Above the lobby, a large sun roof bathes the room in natural light, and other public spaces are tastefully appointed.
