This has to be one of Palm Bay’s most stylish resorts, offering guests a truly palatial experience. Bursting with intricate arches, domes and towers, the Royal Mirage pays homage to Arabian architecture with plenty of rich green courtyards and colourful gardens to wander in at leisure. Divided into three zones, The Palace is located alongside the beachfront with swimming pools galore to laze by, a water sports centre, tennis courts and a KidsOnly play centre. At the heart of the resort is The Arabian Court, designed in the spirit of the Orient with charismatic guest rooms and elaborately-styled sea-facing suites. Last but by no means least; the Residence & Spa is an intimate sanctuary with its own private reception and dining room – choose between a guest room, a suite or a free-standing beachfront Garden Villa. It’s also where you’ll find the Health and Beauty Institute – a veritable oasis of relaxation, treat yourself to a body wrap or hot stone massage, you deserve it! Dining is always a pleasure but at the Royal Mirage it’s even more so. Feast on modern cuisine with an Asian twist at one of several restaurants including The Rotisserie with its show kitchen, the Mediterranean-inspired Olives and Celebrities – you never know, you might just spot one or two!

TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
The Hotel is really nice done, with the whole ambiance. It`s just a pity that from most of the rooms in the Arabian Court you will look directly on the man big bridge and road, and a new construction... Read more side just next door. But the restaurant in the hotel are really nice. The Spa, which is in in an other building part, is really nicely done, but unfortunately if you are not booking any treatment you could just use the normal sauna and a small whirlpool but the Hammam is reserved for appointment, what I was a little bit a pity.

I stayed in the One and Only, Royal Mirage, The Palce in Dubai with my husband for part of our honeymoon. It's about 20-30 minute drive from the airport, on arrival it is very impressive, large... Read more grounds, majestic statues on the outside, the staff are very attentive, as soon as you arrive, your bags are taken from you while you sit down on the sofas in the reception with a cold drink, in the meantime the staff book you in and get your room arranged. You are then escorted to your room, we had a special plate of macaroons and flowers left for us on arrival. We had a superior gold club room which was not a large as anticipated but still adequate space, lovely decor, balcony is small but had lovely views of the pool and sea. We had a club room so had access to their lounge, and they were very helpful and were able to book our lunch at the Burj Al Arab, gave us advice about local sites and booked transport for us. The pool and beach are clean and spacious, well maintained. You have access to the Arabian court and the Residence and Spa so there are plenty of different restaurants and bars to choose from Drawbacks, such a large resort you loose the personal touch. We were offered discount at the spa as it was our honeymoon which we took advantage of, based in the residence and spa, lovely clean facilities, relaxing and good staff. Overall high standard hotel, luxurious, relaxing with plenty to do. Read less
This is a warning for travelers considering a stay at the “One and Only” resort in Dubai. The “One and Only” positions itself as a high end luxury resort, which would lead you to believe that care... Read more and concern for guests are a high priority. My experience as a guest there in January suggests otherwise. To start, the check-in process at the “One and Only Royal Mirage” was long and frustrating. Confusion about rooms and a long wait while the desk clerk fumbled with the paperwork was only the beginning. Little did I know that things were about to become much worse. As a result of conflicting and erroneous information that I was given by a hotel employee I was late for an appointment with a business colleague who I was to meet in the lobby of the “One and Only Palm”, the adjacent property. I entered the lobby and was looking for my colleague when I tripped into an open fountain that sits in the middle of a walkway. There are no safety measures to protect guests from this hazardous obstruction. I suffered what was a devastating injury to the major muscle and tendon in my right leg, which required emergency surgery at a Dubai hospital and a subsequent air ambulance airlift out of Dubai for further surgery on my leg. I was discharged after an inpatient hospital stay of over 8 weeks. I have been in daily physical therapy for months since my discharge in an attempt to regain full use of my right leg. Sometimes accidents happen. What is appalling is that the “One and Only” chain has shown a total disregard for the magnitude of my injury and has denied any culpability for the hazardous condition that caused it. My requests for reasonable consideration have fallen on deaf ears. They have been totally unwilling to accept any responsibility for the hazardous condition even though (so I’ve been told) they were subsequently forced to make certain changes by the local government. This hotel company and the behavior of its management are, in my opinion, among the worst I have ever encountered. As a corporate CEO it has been my privilege to stay at some of the finest hotels in the world and I would rank the “One and Only” at the very bottom of the list. To suffer an injury of this magnitude and have the property management totally uncaring and dismissive makes this a place, in my opinion, to avoid at all costs. Again, travelers beware. Read less
The Royal Mirage is actually three hotels: the Palace, the Arabian Court and the Residence. We always stay at the Residence which is the luxury boutique hotel. It is smaller than the other two and... Read more has the best staff with very personal service. It is between the other two hotels and extremely tranquil. A veritable oasis in hectic Dubai. It is located right next to the Givenchy Spa so you can literally slip out of your room into the Spa. The Residence is quite expensive but if you are looking for the best in Dubai this is it. Understated elegance without the flash and glitz of other hotels in the area. Read less
A pity, but this hotel is far from having a five star service. It is in the small things that one perceives quality and care. We checked-in and we asked reception to make sure the bell-boy was not... Read more forgetting the flower bunch we brought with us. Instead we found the bell-boy standing in front of our room waiting to collect our luggage. How come, we had just checked-in. Bad information! In the room there is no tea/coffee facilities and no iron board, no welcome amenities, no good-night amenities, etc. Everything that one would commonly find in a five star hotel room, at the O&O has to be asked for. House-keeping is very bad. We had to ask three times to have a flower vase and tea facilities, and only hours later, late in the night, we finally managed to get it. The worse thing is wi-fi. Unbelievable but this hotel offers no free wi-fi. Not even in the lobby. All other hotels their same category and location do easily provide this service, in the lobby AND in the rooms. When we talked to the front-desk manager to complain about house-keeping, wi-fi, etc., he just said we’d be surprised to know how many hotels don’t provide this service. Guess him and their management should pay Westin, Ritz Carlton, Fairmont Palm, etc. a visit and see what they offer and how they treat their guests!! By the way the front-desk manager said he’d take care about the flower vase and tea facilities, but he did not, as we had to ask house-keeping again and, as said, after our third call in hours, we got it. The next day we received some fruits. In a cheap glass vase and served in a totally careless way as you may see from the picture. Breakfast at the Olive restaurant was pretty average. So was the dinner buffet. Nothing to write home about. Again, not comparable at all with any other five star hotel! The beach though is excellent. Good sun-chairs, chilled water served during the day, or the chance to order from the refreshment cart that goes around. All in all we say that for those rates they could provide a much better service, and definitely care more about their guests! Very disappointing. Read less
