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 Aquaventure, Dubai’s most popular water park.

I have been to Dubai on many occasions and my girlfriend and I decided to stay at the One And Only The Palm for the first time.... WOW the hotel is pristine, the staff are wonderful and the facilities are exceptional. If you are looking for a peaceful retreat in paradise then I highly recommend. The short 5 minute free boat shuttle over to Dubai takes you into the heart of where you need to be, to explore the marina, restaurants, shopping malls etc. All the staff are great, in particular, Roshan, Criza and Nick, thank you for such a wonderful experience. Many thanks George Kyriacou Read less

This hotel is simply stunning and the service absolutely outstanding. The bedrooms are beautiful, as is the whole of the decor. The architecture and the water features in particular. The restaurants are excellent, we particularly loved 101, would highly recommend the palm salad! What is so impressive though is the level of service. We celebrated our anniversary and all of the staff were aware of the date, our names, and made the day and night really magical. Huge thanks to the Hotel manager, Moorthy Mudaliar, who is the most visible manager in any hotel we have ever stayed and offered amazing service. Many thanks also to the Head Concierge, Artem. The spa is also beautiful with fantastic therapists. Can't wait to return! Read less
