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.

The W is located in a fantastic area on the Palm with lots of great facilities. The pool is probably the most memorable of those facilities with a spacious and very chilled atmosphere it’s great to relax and unwind. We booked this for our Anniversary and unfortunately even with contacting the hotel no extra arrangements were made for us to feel extra special on this special occasion... There were also a few issues during the day regarding bookings of pool pods and the TV at night didn’t work at all which was frustrating. The breakfast this morning was cold, and very ‘Premier Inn’ style, fry up and a selection of pastries etc but nothing to special. The fact that is was cold was the issue but maybe this is down to Covid service not quite sure, I’d advise ordering some freshly made eggs if you want anything hot. Although, the staff is what make this place great as well - Silas at Wetdeck was always on hand to assist with spot on recommendations and some great conversation. Also Zainab during breakfast did everything to offer great service and made us feel very welcome so thanks especially to both of you! Overall, decent experience but definitely better staycations on offer in Dubai. Listed as 4 star, but really It’d be a 3.5 star if this option was available! Read less

This was my second time at the hotel and I was nothing but impressed. Varun helped arrange for some nice birthday celebrations and room decorations that were just wow. The property is nicely located on a quieter part of the Palm so you get the novelty of the Palm without the craziness of other large mega properties. I spent the majority of my time down at the beach (Sonny and the other attendants are AWESOME) and couldn’t have been happier. So pleasant and a bit more peaceful than the main pool areas. The food was great and I enjoyed my meals. Great cocktails and drinks never hurt either. Everyone on property were so friendly and kind. They help safely enforce social distancing and responsible partying without ruining a good time. An excellent balance. I can’t wait to go back in October Read less

A lovely weeks stay we had at this Beautiful hotel with a lovely room and great atmosphere despite the current situation. Whether we were in a restaurant or relaxing by the pool all staff were lovely and made sure you always had everything you needed. Restaurants are great especially Akirablack, the food is amazing and you get a lovely view inside and out. The only thing we would say is that the music by the pool was quite repetitive each day but certainly not something to impact your stay. When checking out we were waiting for a pick up and chahana one of the staff members was lovely, making sure we had drinks when needed etc. There was Plenty of sun beds outside and having the beach So close was lovely.

Stayed at W with my friends for a staycation. I can say that one of hotel's greatest assets apart from their facilities are their staffs , so big Shout out to the amazing team of W Dubai the Palm. Especially to Chahana ,Jazzen, to Manish of Sobe rooftop bar, to the staffs of Liv namely Shimma, Mohammad and the Filipina lady from Bansalan who were very accommodating to our needs, and by the way the food was great. We also appreciated that the hotel accommodated our request for late check out. I wasn't able to get the names of the front desk concierge staffs and valet but I can still remember their smiling faces and superb service. Oh and how we love our Spectacular Room. Huge, trendy, comfy, and clean. Indeed true to its name coz u will see the spectacular Dubai skyline from our room’s balcony. It was a marvelous experience. Highly recommended! Read less
