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 Atlantis Aquaventure, Dubai’s most popular water park.

Dining is another huge treat with three superb restaurants to choose from, all under the expert guidance of three Michelin star chef Yannick Alléno. ZEST is the main restaurant with floor-to-ceiling windows and a lovely outdoor patio overlooking the pool and gardens whilst STAY by Yannick Alléno showcases traditional cooking methods reinterpreted in a contemporary way.

Luxurious, elegant . And the service from all the staff is first class. They couldn't help enough. Made our experience here, perfect. We stayed in a junior palm suite . Which sat on the beach front. The room was Opulent. And cleaned every day. With a turn down service provided. Spotless! Nothing was ever too much . All staff had a friendly manor and smiling face ready to help. We loved the Safina pool . Only opened last September. Chilled. With a view over the palm jumeirah. Including the Atlantis and Atlantis Royal. Again, staff catering for anything needed. 101 bar and restaurant, on site, has great food and views. Breakfast was done with class. With everything you could want to eat. Chatting to many couples. All agreed, one of the best hotels in dubai . We look forward to returning. Thank you for a fabulous break. Read less

Stayed here for 5 amazing days! Beautiful hotel, the grounds are restaurants are increditable. Superb breakfast in Olives every morning and a special thanks to Joiss who remembered our order every day. Loved poolside restaurant overlooking the beach, again great service and delicious lunchtime menu. Celebrities fine dining restaurant was superb, the level of service and food was simply outstanding. Michael went out of his way on each of our visits and made the most incredible refreshing non-alcoholic aperitifs. The level of service is of a very high standard and Sunil (Manager) takes an awful lot of time to make sure all guests are comfortable and have everything they need. We particularly enjoyed invitation to cocktail party held weekly. Finally big thank you to Howler for going out of her way to source our lovely tea. The Beach Bar & Grill is not to be missed - if it's not too hot the tables outside have spectacular views across Dubai skyline. Read less
