“An Oasis of Calm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

We have stayed at many first class hotels in Dubai - the One & Only Arabian Court tops them all:
Everything from the Pool, Restaurants, Spa to the Service - incredible!
I rarely give 5 stars - but this hotel deserves it.
Understand why people come back. So will we...

This place cannot be faulted. I stayed in one of the Princes's Suite rooms, which was truly massive. The hotel is utterly spotless, as are the gardens. Plenty of staff always busily working with a smile. The restaurant, even as a buffet, offers excellent food, as does the poolside bar. The hotel has its own private seafront, and is never busy. Worth every penny.

Just minutes from the New Dubai Marina, away from indiscreet eyes and hidden by beautiful gardens and palm trees that touch the sky there is One&Only Royal Mirage. A magical place that seems to be too good to be real.

At check-in you are greeted with a smile by the friendly staff and you are invited to take a seat meanwhile all the paperwork takes place. Shortly after you are offered a small nice refreshing iced-tea and a cold face towel.
After, you are escorted to your room. The rooms in the Arabian Court are beautiful and very cozy, with big marble bath, nice terrace and fresh fruits and water on the table. The sleeping quality is great as the room is very well isolated and the beds are very comfortable. In the morning you wake up - once the window is open - to the singing birds.

Relaxing on the private beach or by the pool is great. All the stuff is extremely nice and friendly. The beach service is outstanding. Your towels are taken to the sun-chairs you prefer, right after you sat down your sunglasses will be cleaned. During the day you will be provided with fresh fruit skewers, ice-cold water and refreshing face towels to cool down from the hot Arabian sun. Not even at home you are being so spoiled - it is simply, amazing.

The resorts offer many different restaurants, but when at the beach opt for the Beach Bar & Grill at The Palace - beautiful restaurant, great service, the food is delivered fast and is delicious.
Before sunset head to The Jetty Lounge to relax a have a nice refreshing cocktail, while you see the sun setting over The Palm and the sea start glowing gold.

We left the resort with many good memories and next time, when back in Dubai, One&Only Royal Mirage will be our only option of hotel to stay at.

Room Tip: All the rooms in the Arabian Court are beautiful. If you prefer to have a terrace with direct access...

I came to to Dubai on holiday with my boyfriend and stayed here for 10 nights from 22nd May, we absolutely loved it! From the moment we arrived at the hotel, we were made to feel very welcome and directed straight to our room, which was absolutely stunning.

We tried most of the restaurants, in the Arabian Court section, Eau Zone was our favourite restaurant. And across at The Palace, Celebrities restaurant, we went to these restaurants twice, and both times the food was just amazing. Room service is also fantastic, when we ordered food for lunch it was delivered quickly and the staff at the hotel were so efficient and helpful.

The pool at the Arabian Court was great, whilst sunbathing, there was a waiter who constantly topped up our glasses with water, we were given cold towels regularly (which were needed due to it hitting 42 degrees!), the beach was absolutely beautiful, we actually preferred sunbathing on the beach, as there was a nice breeze.

We used the gym in 'The Residence,' and it was definitely the best gym i have ever seen whilst i have been on holiday, the equipment is very up to date, and there is a personal trainer there at all times, happy to help.

We walked over to The Palace, and the pool was absolutely heaving, so many people, which made me glad that we were staying at the The Arabian Court, as our section was no where near as busy as the palace.

A massive bonus is that wifi at the hotel is now free! they recently changed this, so we were able to go onto the internet in our hotel room, on the beach and at the pool which was great :)

This hotel is truly stunning, i would highly recommend staying at The One and Only, Arabian Court. We would definitely return, in fact we are looking at staying at The One and Only, The Palm next year.

Room Tip: All rooms are fantastic!

I stayed for a week in February with my husband and two children (aged 13 and 10) over half term in February and we had a fantastic holiday. This is the 4th time we have visited Dubai and we always stay at this hotel in the Arabian Court wing. The rooms, service, swimming pool and food are always excellent. The staff are charming and are always willing to help you. Particular mention goes to the guys by the pool. They helped us each day with sun beds and they also organised water polo for the kids and adults each morning - which was great fun. It was sometimes a little slow ordering drinks by the pool, which was annoying but only a small detail. We were holidaying with another family and we all ate out in the hotel restaurants most nights. As we were a party of 10 we made reservations in advance and there Even though there were 10 of us dining together there was never a problem. Even the children in our group were catered for and they weren't at all snooty - even in the most elegant restaurant. Our favourites were Rotisserie for breakfast, Olives for the buffet, Eauzone for lunch by the beach, Nina for a sophisticated curry and Celebrities for a bit of glamour. Kids activities were great - our son did football and there were also camels and ponies on the beach and henna painting which our daughter loved. From the hotel there are plenty of trips to do - Atlantis water Park is in easy reach as well as shopping malls and the Burj Khaleefa. All in all a great family break and I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

I have been in Dubai many times and the one and only is certainly one of the best locations to be at . I always book a room in the Arabian court and i enjoyed it very much .But the bay of Dubai is changing and becoming very noisy it spoilt the previous luxurious quiet relaxing atmosphere that the royal mirage once had , there is lots of boats with loud music partying all day long it is really annoying and a special note for the expensive jet skis back and forth all day. these guys are just dangerous and need to be stopped .they start early morning around 7 am it's really unacceptable .
I feel really sorry about that lovely beach where all the details invite to the serenity but those jet ski pushed me away the unbearable noise is all over the place.
Why the management of the hotel is not doing anything against it ?????

This was my first trip to Dubai and my daughter had booked afternoon tea here as a belated Mother's Day treat. The hotel has a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere and the decor is exquisite.
The experience was amazing and this is the best afternoon tea I have had. Staff were polite and couldn't do enough for you and service was efficient.
The selection of sandwiches and cakes was awesome. At 99 Dihrams per head, it was excellent value money.
