It was our first time traveling abroad in 19 months since the beginning of the pandemic. We could not have chosen a better location and hotel in Dubai. The One and Only Palm truly stands out from other luxury hotels. This is mainly due to its secluded location, style and design of the property and most importantly a superb team in place. We reached early and were checked in immediately to a Junior Executive Suite situated in one of the mansions away from the main Manor building close to the private beach. The rooms are exquisitely designed with an eye for quality and detail. We had the pleasure of dinning at Zest, STAY and 101 Lounge Bar, the food and service at all the outlets were amazing. Throughly enjoyed the cote de boeuf on the menu..…my only complain was the portions were too big. Our host Nowshad was always on hand to ensure reservations and transportation were taken care off on time. Useful suggestions were made to plan our tight itinerary, from our PCR test to online checking everything was taken care of so that we can spend most of our time enjoying our stay. The hotel caters very well for all its guests. We decided to spend 2 days only at the hotel to enjoy the amenities it has to offer. While the wife was away at Guerlain Spa getting some treatments I was making most of the grand pool. There is a constant flow of refreshing cocktails and signature coconut water available from the pool bar. If you fancy something a bit more exotic/ cocktails, Subin and his team at the lounge bar are always at hand to cater to your needs. Special thanks has to be given to Mr Moorthy and his team, in particular Andre and Tasneem at front desk, Nagesh from House Keeping who made sure our suite was pristine throughout our stay. The One & Only Palm is some where we will happily stay on our next visit to Dubai. The Palm is all about luxury and 5 star experience !! Read less

Staying at One&Only The Palm is coming home to us. So, when it was safe enough to travel again, we immediately booked our stay here again. Unlike the hotels with a few hundred rooms, this resort with approx. 90 rooms is safe, quiet and intimate. It’s comparable to an enclave and it meets all the wishes of the guests who loves peace. You can relax on the poolside, where there are private cabanas to rent. On the beach, on one side is the water of the Arabian Gulf and on the other the iconic cityscape of Dubai. From the frontdoor to the swimming pool, there are so many lovely people around us who spoil us with a high-quality comfortable service and also provide us with a high-quality culinary experience. We always tell everyone who wants to hear it, The One&Only The Palm delivers tailor-made holidays. One thing is certain, we will be back next year. Last but no least, a special thank to all the staffs are doing beyond their limits to make all the guests holiday perfect and smooth. Specially would like to mention front desk Dev, Kingsley, Andrew, JB our host. From ZEST Minh and his team. From STAY restaurant chef Renod, who went out from menu for my husband request. From 101 restaurant Hassan and team specially chef who cooked our steaks. We spend the day by the pool most of the time and mister Noel Silva, Tharindu and their team took very good care of us. Thank you Mr Moorthy for keeping such a team together. Read less

Too many times nowadays you pay for a 5* experience and receive nothing more than 3*. Well this hotel has restored our faith as it was absolutely faultless from start to finish. The whole resort was impeccably clean and the rooms fantastic. We upgraded on arrival to a Beach front room which was superb and the views were fabulous. Every single member of staff was clearly highly trained and knew what was expected. Special mention to Sheweh at the pool and our Host Ermek who both went over and above to ensure our stay was perfect. Our wedding Anniversary didn't go unnoticed and there were a few lovely little surprises laid on. The Spa was also the best we've ever experienced. I could keep going with the superlatives however if all The One & Only hotels are as good as this, we will certainly visit others. Read less

Stay was like a fairy tale out of One Thousand and One Nights. The intimidate setting and architecture of the resort was complimented by the well appointed suite. Pool area? Heavenly. The entire staff was not only attentive at its highest level, but gave it an additional, personal touch by addressing one by name, even when not having interacted before. When in Dubai there is nothing else, as there is only One, the One and Only Palm. Read less
