Warmly welcoming international visitors again, you can now finally return to the decadence and deserts of dreamy Dubai. Indulge in abundant space at One&Only Royal Mirage, a serene resort that houses three distinct hotels, offering something for every discerning traveller's taste. Together, they boast over 65 acres of immaculate gardens, soothing fountains and intricate Arabic details, all leading towards a one-kilometre sandy stretch of Jumeirah Beach. Here awaits the ultra-cool, adults-only DRIFT beach club, ideal for child-free lunches while little ones embrace all things Arabian at the KidsOnly club. The intimate surroundings and private pool of the Residence & Spa perfectly suit those seeking tranquillity, while the largest of the three hotels, The Palace, offers a host of leisure options, restaurants and family-friendly facilities. Evoking a sense of opulence reminiscent of old Arabia, the suitably named Arabian Court is set across two wings linked by a grand gallery, home to several interconnecting guest rooms that are fabulous for families.
