Given Dubai’s status as the definitive ‘do-it-all’ destination, it seems remiss to suggest there is an oasis of calm within this bustling super city. However, it is possible to find exactly that with Elegant Resorts as one of our favourite luxury hotels in Dubai is One&Only The Palm.
A secluded realm of luxury located on its own private enclave, surrounded by opulent gardens and cascading fountains, One&Only The Palm epitomises the rich culture of luxury in Dubai and offers guests the exclusive opportunity to enjoy a relaxing and rejuvenating stay in this lavish location. This exquisite hotel is truly unique and it is a real challenge to accurately explain the full extent of its appeal but, for your convenience, we’ve compiled a list of our Top Ten Reasons to Visit One&Only The Palm This Year.
1. Majestic Menus
Of course, any luxury holiday is defined, in part, by the variety and quality of food on offer throughout your stay. In Dubai, a world of flavours is available on your doorstep, but at One&Only The Palm the experience of epicurean luxury is even closer to home. Choose from three renowned restaurants including STAY, by Michelin-starred chef, Yannick Alleno, which showcases Alleno’s signature style of taking classic dishes and redesigning them with contemporary ingredients and methods. His legendary Pastry Library is also a must-visit for any foodie as you can design your own dessert! At ZEST, Western, Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine are explored through show cooking. Dining at ZEST is a feast for both tastebuds and eyes as the impeccable interior design features silver leaf and quartz crystals to create a stylish setting that frames a beautifully prepared meal. Enjoy lavish breakfasts, fabulous Friday brunches (one of Dubai’s most popular pastimes) and generous all-day dining. Finally, with the city skyline in view, there is something particularly special about dining alfresco in Arabia. At 101 Dining and Lounge Bar, Mediterranean-inspired cuisine is served overlooking the picturesque marina and this is also one of the best spots in Dubai for a scenic sundowner.
2. Resplendent Relaxation
Knowing you can combine a city break, beachcombing and stellar spa luxury in one five-star stay is a real plus for anyone pushed for time and wanting to return home feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, and in this sense, One&Only The Palm more than delivers. At the hotel’s gorgeous Guerlain Spa, luxury is a lifestyle. Understanding each guest’s needs are as individual as the person themselves, treatments are personalised and can be enjoyed in one of nine exclusive treatment rooms or in the privacy of the guest’s own room. Each treatment features bespoke elements and ingredients that can only be experienced at One& Only The Palm. Results and relaxation are the focus and the setting feels like a return to the true mythical magic of the Middle East.
3. Stay in Style
As is the rule in Dubai, the scale should always be grander and greater than anywhere else. At One&Only The Palm this applies to almost every aspect of this remarkable luxury hotel, but is most apparent in the guest accommodation. One&Only The Palm boasts the largest entry level rooms in Dubai and, throughout all of the guest accommodation, you can enjoy endless space, stunning views and unparalleled levels of comfort. Choose from spacious suites located in the Manor House, overlooking the main pool, Low Rise Mansions that house the Junior and Executive Suites, some of which boast private pools, and the standout Private Beachfront Villas. Combine the luxury of a prestigious private villa with the show-stopping facilities of a world-class resort and enjoy personalised butler service and an enviable beachfront location in these sophisticated luxury villas.
4. Location, Location, Location
One&Only The Palm enjoys one of Dubai’s most impressive settings.
