W Dubai - The Palm

Dubai Beach, Dubai Beaches and beyond

The hotel

Arguably the globe’s coolest name in hotels, the W has finally hit Dubai’s coveted Palm Jumeirah neighbourhood. Seriously stylish, it brings the W’s famous VIP vibe with it, with audacious design and décor; Michelin-starred masterchefs at its signature dining venues; a spa that mixes chilled massages with playful party-prep treatments like coloured lashes; and chic hangout spaces like SoBe – a rooftop bar with 360 degree views over Dubai’s skyscrapers and the Arabian Sea. The fashionable feel continues down at W The Palm Dubai’s WET Deck, where you’ll find a pristine sandy shoreline, DJ booth, and space-age cabana pods sitting on pool-top platforms.

I know it’s rare to see a hotel on trip advisor with all five greens but if any hotel and staff were deserving of such it would be the The W the Palm. I never once heard any of the staff use the word ‘No’ ... I mean wow! everything was yes, no problem, right away Sir/Madam. This place is also Covid conscious and it was spotless.

I know it’s rare to see a hotel on trip advisor with all five greens but if any hotel and staff were deserving of such it would be the The W the Palm. I never once heard any of the staff use the word ‘No’ ... I mean wow! everything was yes, no problem, right away Sir/Madam. This place is also Covid conscious and it was spotless. The rooms are extremely comfy and clean. The food was impeccable. For the tourists the distance from the hotel to the centre is quite far in terms of travellers, BUT if you want a hotel that is going to exceed all your expectations this is the place.!!! If you want to see the hustle and bustle and you don’t mind paying the taxi fare then this is still the place to return and unwind. Absolutely faultless Read less

We decided to try the W resort for my daughter birthday. A wonderful modern design in every way! See photos. The staff was both very helpful and friendly. Including but not limited to surprise my daughter with balloons and birthday cake. This was when worth five stars. Note on the some confusion that is why we graded the resort as four stars. One is the resort spa. There were several posters around the places stating that uae residents get 40% of detox treatments massages at the spa. Unfortunately afterwards treatment, we were informed that the sale expired. We told them then they should remove advertising it. Not happy with baiting advertising. Yes we enjoyed the spa. Next was use of the pools and cabana area. We did receive a flyer when we first checked in. This gave the rates for the pool. The confusion was walking around the outdoor area. What we could and cant. We decided to avoid this area for the first couple of days because we felt stupid not understanding things. When we did go to the pools, the staff was very helpful and more importantly friendly. They explained that the 400 dirhams for a hotel guest cabana was actually a cost if you didn’t order food. You receive the credit towards food and drink. No problem. We had plans to order lunch for three adults. Definitely worth it. We definitely need to plan another trip Read less
