The hotel

Exquisitely designed to the very last detail, the palatial Raffles The Palm Dubai sits on the west crescent of the famous Palm Jumeirah. Boasting the largest accommodation on the island, every room benefits from its own balcony or terrace with stunning views, and handcrafted furniture by Francesco Molon. A stroll through the gardens and spacious pool area takes you to the beach, a stunning spot to unwind, where the white sands have been imported from the Maldives! Delicious dining options await, from breakfast on the terrace of Le Jardin and seafood on the beach at Piatti, to afternoon tea in Bluthner Hall, or a nightcap at Sola Jazz Bar. Indulge in a treatment at one of the largest spas in the Middle East, or enjoy a classic at the in-house cinema - there's so much to experience at this incredible hotel.

This was our 7th visit to Dubai, but first visit to the Palm and Raffles, having previously stayed at hotels on JB. We arrived early after the night flight from BHX and unfortunately our room was not available until 3pm. That saying we were able to use the facilities and pool etc so whilst being tired, this did not dampen our enjoyment. We had booked a Club Room, so upon arrival were taken to the lounge for check in and access to breakfast which was straight forward. Definitely worth the additional cost for Club Room access with the additional benefits. Staff in the club room were brilliant and treated us so well. 10/10 for the Club Room Room - we had requested a city view but ended up with an ocean view. Bedrooms are the best we have had in Dubai. Very spacious for 3 of us with separate WC, bathroom and walk in wardrobe. Very comfortable with work desk, sofa, fridge etc. 10 /10 for the Rooms. Pool - really nice and clean environment. Plenty of sunbeds and no need to rush / arrive early. Staff very effective, providing towels and water. Generally it was quiet around the pool, although the noise levels raised in the afternoons as happy hour opened. 9/10 for Pool. Beach - did not really use. Sand is hard and shelly, unlike JB which is soft. Again, the water is clear, safe and warm. Restaurants and Buffet - Whilst we used the club room, we also ate at the buffet and the Italian. Again, very good. Buffet had a great selection of food including good meat dishes and good quality food. 9/10. So all good! The negatives for us and having our 7 year daughter related around the evening time. Whilst we do not expect tributes or dancers etc like you see in Spain, after our meal there was nothing really to do in the hotel with no family friendly bars etc. Nor is there anywhere to really wander too apart from within the hotel grounds. On 3 of the nights we for a taxi to the Souk, Marina and City which was great, but sadly the hotel was very quiet for families in the evening. 6/10. Most of the guests were very friendly, and a mixture of British, German and Russian. There were some younger families who thought that they were famous, influences, billionaires, but that's Dubai generally! Overall, very good and very nice. However, we have stayed before at Ritz Carlton, Westin and Dar Al Masyaf which perhaps offered more for us personally than Raffles but each to their own I guess. We may return but would consider other hotels too in the first instance. Read less

An exceptional experience at the Raffles Palm Dubai, every staff member was hospitable towards my families needs. Darrel H in Le Jardin everyday was a cut above the rest and his team, made sure we were prioritised and looked after breakfast, lunch/dinner during our stay half board. The level of consideration form the house keeping, concierge and restaurant staff, spoiling my daughter allowing her to sit in the super cars out front, to creating a teddy from towels with a note on her bed. I couldn’t recommend the staff more, the little things they noticed and had done will always put this experience above the rest I’ve had in Dubai. Special chocolates for my daughter and wife as she is pregnant, we couldn’t want for anything more. I also met the head of security, and the hotel manager at lunch. They were both very personable and repeatedly made the time to ask how me and my family were offering their assistance, which as busy people, I appreciated. So after a good break, good business and meeting some great like minded people I’d recommended Raffles and I will be visiting again next year. I can’t upload the good photos as they’re of my family but presented what I can. Thank you all at Raffles! Read less
