One of Dubai’s more intimate and secluded resorts, One&Only The Palm is located on its own stretch of secluded beachfront.
One&Only The Palm is half an hour away from the centre of Dubai. Close enough to explore without inconvenience, but far enough away to guarantee a more peaceful and relaxing holiday experience. With its to-die-for views of the Dubai Marina and intimate setting, you’d be forgiven for thinking the hotel is an adults-only haven. What One&Only The Palm does extremely well is it caters to all types of guests without compromise. There are adult only pools, kids’ programmes and even complimentary access to the incredible Aquaventure Water Park when you book a certain number of nights.
The rooms and suites at the hotel are among some of the most spacious in Dubai. They are split into three sections; The Manor, in the heart of the resort overlooking the pool, the Palm Beach Mansions near the beach and the Beachfront Villas, sprawling accommodation with exceptional standards of privacy and personal service. The rooms, suites and villas at the resort all offer a terrace or balcony and some, like the Palm Beach Suites, offer pools.
The three restaurants at the hotel are overseen by the magic of Michelin-starred chef Yannick Alleno. Zest is the main eatery, standing out with its expansive floor-to-ceiling windows, overlooking the pool and gardens. This all-day dining restaurant serves dishes inspired by flavours from the middle east, Asia and the west. There is also a dining lounge and bar with stunning views of the Dubai skyline and Yanick Alleno’s signature restaurant which specialises in delicious French cuisine.
There is so much to see and do in Dubai that it’s impossible to be bored, but if you are having problems picking through the lengthy list of attractions, we suggest the water-themed fun of Aquaventure, or the immersive virtual reality experiences at The Void, where you can even become a Ghostbuster for the day!
After an exciting day exploring Dubai, return to One&Only The Palm and relax at the Guerlain Spa. A sanctuary of wellbeing, guests are offered a personalised experience designed to treat their specific needs and wants. The spa has couples’ rooms, hair and beauty facilities and a fitness room, should you feel the need to work off some of the delicious food.
