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.

Wow. This is a gorgeous hotel located on the Palm. Hotel has beach access with sunbeds avaialable for the guests as well as several swimming pools. The service level from the staff is world class so you feel very welcome here, making it a good hotel experience. The room is smashing!! W hotels are well known for their interious and this hotel, which is newly opened, is no exeption. Beds are also very comfortable so sleeping quality is very good. The breakfast buffet is world class, perhaps the best one I have ever seen. A coffee machine with coffee beans would make it even better. We also ate at the Italian restaurant at the hotel. Food was Michelin quality, so was the service. I will for sure come back here, this was a very pleasant stay. Highly recommended!! Read less

We had booked this hotel for 3 nights at the beginning of our Middle East Holiday. In the busyness of many bookings, some how we had booked for one person rather than as a couple. This was not a problem and the receptionist gave us a discounted breakfast rate for the additional person. The front office staff, concierge and bellboys were very helpful. The decor of this hotel is a delight and is so unique. We were upgraded and our room was large with a balcony that had a comfortable lazy bed so we spent hours there gazing at the ocean. The bathroom and vanity area were spacious. As a new hotel, the lighting system was modern using finger touch technology. Breakfast was an enormous spread. The only fault I could see was that their pool and beachside cabanas were outrageously priced - 500 Dhirams ( Aud 200) per day increasing to 1000 Dhirams on Emirati weekends. But then sadly, UAE has become perhaps one of the more expensive travel destinations in the world....a big big change from my last visit in 2003. Read less

This hotel was a phenomenal experience in all aspects. In fact, I fell in love with the W Dubai (The Palm).

This hotel was a phenomenal experience in all aspects. In fact, I fell in love with the W Dubai (The Palm). I am usually a bit apprehensive about the W chain because I've had several disappointing experiences in numerous W properties globally over the years, but this one impressed me from the minute we checked in. From the bellmen to reception, the check-in process was seamless and genuinely welcoming. The stylish room was well-appointed, perfectly functional, and had an amazing view. Breakfast was a delight with ample choices to prevent it from becoming monotonous during our five-day stay. All of the dining options in the hotel -- especially Torno Subito (Italian) and Akira Back (Japanese/Korean) -- are top-notch and innovative, and the beach area was a delightful and relaxing location to enjoy our sunny lunches. Throughout our stay, all the staff with whom we interacted were friendly and exceptionally courteous, with notable standouts being Jasmine and Chiara at the front desk, Monica in the guest relations department, and Jazzen who helped us at checkout. In fact, the service of the hotel should receive SEVEN STARS! If you're searching for a place to stay in Dubai that has exceptional service, wonderful dining options, as well as the opportunity to either relax or party depending on your daily mood, then there's no need to search too hard: this W truly has it all!

We are just back from a fantastic family holiday to W Dubai The Palm. We were nervous travelling as we have two 7 month old boys and it was our first holiday as a four, but the hotel was amazing - it sensory overload for the two little ones - and Marriott, your recruitment strategy is on point as every member of staff we came into contact with could not do enough for us or our boys. We had some issues getting out and about at first, having to find a car big enough for two car seats, but Gareth in the transport team was able to find us a car big enough, set it up with the car seats and isofix bases so we could get out on a few occasions. They even found us a car and leant the driver their car seats to get us to the airport when a local company had let us down. Nav, one of the Wetdeck attendants always looked after us and our boys by the pool, helping us find quieter spots with shade for the buggy so we could have a precious 15 mins break in the sun if the boys we to sleep. Monica was always a friendly face in reception, the waitresses and hosts in Liv couldn’t do enough for the boys, and even Olsen who made our omlettes in the morning took the time to make friendly conversation. We were very impressed with the half board option and enjoyed both Akira Back and Torino Subito and would definitely recommend the hotel to anyone with small children. Read less
