STAYCAY IN BARSHA HEIGHTS: Is it worth it?
Barsha Heights, formerly known as Tecom, has undergone quite the transformation in recent years. Once a quiet suburb consisting of a few scattered high rises amongst the sand, it’s become one Dubai’s most exciting urban communities. Thanks to an influx of hotels, hip restaurants and trendy nightspots, it’s fast become the go-to spot for the city’s thrill seekers. Who would’ve thought, eh?
One such hot spot is TRYP by Wyndham Dubai, which is located in the heart of the stylish Barsha Heights district. Thanks to its location (a stone's throw from Dubai Marina, with fast and easy access to the Downtown area) and nearby attractions, it’s also a perfect staycation destination.
The four star hotel is contemporary in design and boasts an impressive 650 rooms, including Tryp Rooms, Tryple Rooms, Family Rooms and Premium Rooms, which all feature family-friendly amenities. All rooms have sleek and stylish décor, and provide the usual: free Wi-Fi, a safe, a minibar and in-room streaming entertainment. In addition, TRYP VYP rooms feature a plush premium bed, balcony and exclusive access to the VYP executive lounge. After checking in, you’ll quickly realise that TRYP by Wyndham is a brand designed for the modern traveller. Which is exactly what we love about it.
For those who want to stay back and enjoy the property itself, you’re in luck. The hotel features three food and beverage outlets, including Local, a rustic social eating house serving delicacies inspired by favourite comfort foods as well as vegetarian and vegan dishes, and L!QD, a luxe-bohemian style restaurant and bar ideal for a late-night hangout by the pool. Then there’s Barbary Deli + Club on the ground floor, which is one of the city’s most popular nightspots, and has attracted the likes of Nicole Scherzinger, Lindsay Lohan, Chloe Green and Jeremy Meeks, to name a few.
Of course, no staycation is complete without a pool. The TRYP’s Chill Pool is one of the best in the area, where you’ll be able to enjoy some chill time and float or lounge around. When the weather allows, the pool makes the perfect romantic setting for some after hour drinks with ambient lighting in dreamy hues.
And for those who like to keep fit during their staycations (don’t look at us), Abz Gym is there to help you achieve your fitness goals. This fully fitted gym features elliptical cross trainers, free weights and cardio machines. If the sweatbox isn’t your style then stretch those pins with the hotel’s in-house yogis for morning yoga at the pool deck.
Best of all? The hotel offers modern luxury that won’t break the bank. Cool and affordable? Now we’re talking.

The hotel loves the environment!
TRYP by Wyndham Dubai is at the forefront of making vacations as eco-friendly as possible, so you can be rest assured that your stay will have a minimal impact on the environment.
‘LUVE (Love Your Vibrant Earth) by TRYP’, the hotel’s industry-leading eco-friendly programme, has successfully boosted the property’s green credentials by focusing on the principals of reducing, reusing and giving back.
The hotel has introduced several green initiatives including replacing all plastic bottles with glass alternatives - saving hundreds of thousands of bottles from going into landfill every year, to using sustainable paper towelling manufactured from 100% locally recycled cardboard, introducing the ‘Soap for Hope’ initiative across the hotel and loads more.
In fact, TRYP has more than halved the amount of water used in the hotel each day and also helped to create jobs in developing countries. Bravo!
