I agree on your comments about the destination as such - but taste differ.
As for quality hotels, I think FS Jumeirah, MO, Bvlgari, O&O definitely qualify as being excellent luxury hotels.

You didnít mention how long your stats are. In my experience you can expect approx 25% off when staying for one month +. You can negotiate some other benefits like 25% off F&B and up to 50% off...
