An oasis of stylish energy and tranquility, One&Only The Palm is a luxurious addition to Palm Island's impressive portfolio. Blending Moorish and Andalusian architecture with contemporary, chic interiors, guest rooms are divided between the manor house and beachfront mansions, boasting every home comfort you can think of, including luxury marble bathrooms and a private balcony or garden patio. Choose to stay steps from the sea or surrounded by lush, green gardens. As well as lazing on your own private stretch of beach in oversized day beds, you can splash about to your heart’s content in the 850 sq m swimming pool or indulge in water sports galore at its sister hotel One&Only Royal Mirage. There are also several world-class golf courses a short drive away as well as Atlantis Aquaventure, Dubai’s most popular water park.

Dining is another huge treat with three superb restaurants to choose from, all under the expert guidance of three Michelin star chef Yannick Alléno.

A way of cheerfulness and sophistication, be it the dining experiences, the water sporting, the conversations with the maîtres d'hôtel, or simply the blooming colors of grand botanicals that welcome my family and I - they spark joy and wisdom that carry a sense of humility, a true display of serendipity & kindness. Every department of the hotel has its charm, it brings out the extraversion in the introverted me- you would want to know their stories because every bit of how the hotel is run is flawless! And I mean really, in perfection. Breakfast was thoughtfully all-wellness, high quality and delicious, the pool bar kept us hydrated and cool with homemade iced tea and gelato, the waterfront 101 was a glittery, awesome image of skyscrapers, and the food was definitely top. The private beach behind our mansion was a paradise resort for my son. We went kayaking, standup paddling, and a few other recreational boats. We did tennis too. The people.... they spread joy and kindness!! What an oasis of style, elegance, and cheerfulness!!! That's a luxury to me. We felt completely rejuvenated. And yes, they were Covid-compliant, in a subtly, elegant way. Read less

We try to come here once a year as it is just Paradise. Everybody here is friendly and always makes you feel special and so very welcome. The place is an oasis and is missing not one thing. We can't wait to be back to our home away from home. Once again thank you to Vincent and his team for taking such good care of us.

One & Only The Palm was truly the most incredible hotel we've ever experienced - a luxurious and sophisticated sanctuary in an almost hidden pocket at the far end of the Palm. The architecture, facilities and staff friendliness were absolutely stand-out. We were particularly impressed with the poolside service (including exquisite cocktails and complimentary daily sunglasses cleaning), the breakfast at Zest, and the Guerlain spa, where I enjoyed the best massage treatment I've ever had. We are already planning our next visit back, and are so grateful that 'Angelfish Travel' introduced us to the resort - Clare and Jo seamlessly organised the whole trip for us, which meant we could completely relax and enjoy our holiday.

Everything from minute 1 was superb, right until someone grabbed me a coffee for the ride away from the hotel. The staff are superb and really go the extra mile. We were superbly looked after especially by Shane and Cath at the adults pool. Very sorry to leave after a week but it would be impossible not to go back.
