W Dubai - The Palm

Dubai Beach, Dubai

Virgin rating

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 master chefs 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.

We had a lovely dinner accompanied by Shrutesh serving as much information about the restaurant as the meal itself. We recommend taking time to visit and enjoy the food, wine, and ambience. We hope you have as positive of an experience as we did.

We (family of four) had dinner at the Yorno Subito. The food was exceptional and the service was brilliant. The view and setting is absolutely stunning. We were served by Ivan, who was great with the kids, and couldn't do enough to help. 5 *****
