One&Only The Palm

One&Only The Palm

Lavish and exclusive, One&Only The Palm provides an opulent stay on the west crescent of the distinctive Palm Jumeirah peninsula. Set within manicured gardens, palm trees and fountains, the hotel has been built to stand out, with palatial Andalusian architecture and clean, contemporary interiors with a Moorish twist.

Along with a large, sparkling pool lined with day beds, the hotel also gives you access to a private stretch of white-sand beach, where you can relax to the sound of turquoise waters gently lapping the shore — butler service optional. When not out exploring the city and its surrounds, you can indulge in a treatment at the property’s all-suite spa, try some water sports or join in with some beach yoga.

The resort offers a mix of rooms and suites spread across the tri-level Manor House and six low-rise Palm Beach Mansions. For more indulgence, you could stay in one of the private two-bedroom villas facing the beach. All options are generously sized and tastefully decorated in light, neutral shades and latticed balconies.

You’ll have a choice of three high-quality restaurants headed by a Michelin-starred chef if you decide to dine at the property. Serving a mix of cuisines, they all offer alfresco seating, some with views over Dubai’s growing skyline. There’s also The Lounge, a relaxed space where you can enjoy light bites, cocktails, morning coffees and afternoon teas.

Rooms

The hotel gives you a choice of spacious rooms, suites and two-bedroom villas, all boasting an elegant contemporary design with Moorish elements. Each has an en suite bathroom and private terrace or garden area, while the villas and some of the suites also have their own pool facing the gardens or the beach and glittering Persian Gulf. Rooms and suites are split between the Manor House and the Palm Beach Mansions, which are just steps from the beach. You’ll find a range of different room and suite types, some with separate living and dining areas for additional space.

Location
