“You will never want to leave!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

Just back from 8 days at this most wonderful of hotels. This should have 7 stars as well as the Burj, the standard of service was outstanding. It is clear that the staff love their jobs and this comes across in the way that they look after their guests. From the moment we were greeted by the manager, given breakfast and then taken to our room we were overwhelmed by the warmth of everyone working there. It was out wedding anniversary and they pulled out all the stops to make it memorable and romantic. I have never seen such clean bedrooms and bathrooms and even the most of basic of these is luxurious beyond words. To be honest I never want to go anywhere else again and can't wait to rebook to return to this little piece of heaven on earth. The afternoon tea is not to be missed! Thank you to the One & Only Residence and Spa for the holiday of a lifetime.

Room Tip: Second floor probably best

We've been there in March 2012. That was great, with an exceptional service. We had a nice suite on the top of one of the buildings, with a private and really quiet terrace. The breakfast and afternoon tea were just excellent.

Had a classic room ground level. Small outside patio with chairs. Spacious room furnished in older typical Arabian style. Separate shower and bath with Molton brown toiletries supplied. Large comfy super king bed. No coffee/tea making facilities. No iPod docking station although one can be borrowed by arrangement. Beautiful peacocks roaming around the gardens, one with 7 chicks!! This part of the 3(also Arabian court or the palace) hotels is more for adults only and has a very relaxed, peaceful and tranquil atmosphere and really not the one to chose if you have children. The staff are very attentive and discreet. There are cabanas on the beach ( the other 2 hotels have beach umbrellas and beds) and by the quiet pool where a steady supply of cool water is brought to you by excellent beach attendants. The pool and beach are for the Residence and Spa guests only. A complementary high tea is served each day from 3 pm which is delicious. Breakfast is if excellent quality with a cooked breakfast served at your table whilst you also have a continental buffet to choose from. Restaurants available in all 3 parts of the hotel and would recommend Eau zone (European & SE Asian), Ninas (Indian curry) or the Dining room. Also enjoyed Stay restaurant at The Palm. Going to see the beautiful fountain show by the Burj Kalifa is a must. There are also plenty of lovely restaurants to try here as well, although on one side of the lake, restaurants do not serve alcohol. Wi fi available but it's very patchy and certainly not available on the beach. Generally we found our stay to be very relaxed with all staff trying their utmost to be helpful.

The Residence is so relaxing, beautiful and homely, felt like we really where returning home to this wonderful hotel. A lovely welcome back by management and staff, like seeing old friends again. Staff here really are attentive, very professional, and do their very best to attend to your every need. On our last evening, house keeping had arranges fresh rose petals all over our bed and around our room, this was a lovely touch & just one of the little things they do to make you feel special. The hotel is immaculate, inside and out. We love the privacy & seclusion of The Residence, its own private pool, area of the beach and complimentary afternoon tea on a daily basis. The Dining Room Restaurant is good, but sadly not amazing. Ate at the Stay one evening, at the One & Only Palm, this was fine dining at its best, and was truly excellent. Would I recommend this hotel 'yes'. Would we return 'yes'

We stayed at the Residence for 5 nights, checking in on 28th April and celebrated my birthday there. After reading some of the reviews we were a bit apprehensive, however I have to say the Residence is the best hotel we have ever stayed in when it comes to service and the personal touch. We are big fans of the Oriental Group of hotels and this outshines them completely. Our room was nice and of a good size with a balcony and the gardens were immaculate. The pool area was lovely (no screaming or shouting children) with fresh fruit and iced towels brought around in the morning and sorbet and sunglass cleaning offered in the afternoons! The Dining Room emphasises that they can make anything you would like, it doesn't have to be on the menu (again the personal touch) however the food we had there, including the breakfasts were excellent. Fantastic yoghurts from France and home made toasted muesli as well as the usual a la carte cooked breakfasts. We had dinner at Ninas the Indian Restaurant in the Arabian Court and was just about the best Indian food we had ever tasted. Every morning we had a workout in the gym (needed to work off all those delicious dinners) and the trainer and equipment were excellent, on the last day I had a facial in the Spa which was wonderfully relaxing and very professional. Every member of staff I walked past on my birthday wished me a happy birthday by name and in the afternoon a large bouquet of flowers, an amazing chocolate shoe filled with fruit and a personally signed card by 15 members of staff was placed in our room!! What more can I say? We're there any draw backs? Only that during the weekends (Friday and Saturday) the beach can be very noisy due to the Dubai Residents partying on boats anchored off the beach and jet skis racing up and down in the sea between the boats. Other than that it was Heaven.

One & Only Royal Mirage is without doubt a top class hotel. We stayed at the Residence and Spa and found the Hotel amazing, the room (not really a room but a suite) beautiful, with fresh flowers on arrival at 2.00am. Staff are absolutely flawless. Every request is handled with efficiency and a genuine dire to please. The grounds are immaculate. We ate at the Indian restaurant once but sadly I found this did not live up to the standards of One & Only. It wasnt bad, just not that memorable. Breakfast was also a little average. One day we were having lunch and were disturbed by the yelling in the kitchen. We were told the chef was not happy with some of his staff. This made me feel uncomfortable and took away the enjoyment of our lunch. While we were having dinner a staff member stopped to ask us if were enjoying the meal, which we were until he decided to have a long conversation about travelling, staying too long at our table and we didnt want to appear to be rude but he should have moved on. My problem isnt really with the hotel but Dubai in general. This isnt my favourite city and if it wasnt for the stop on the way home we would not stay at all. Overall the hotel is immaculate, Staff are top notch, the food at this place was dissappointing and the top dollars you pay I expected more. Would I visit again? No.

Room Tip: We stayed at Residence and Spa and could see no problem with any room, but you pay top dollar for it...
