Desert Palm Hotel is a small chic hotel in an Oasis in Dubai. Off the E44 and just past the low end Mall of Dragon Mart ( not for a shopping experience other than low end bargain buys) and opposite the not yet opened Safari Park, DP is an unlikely location for one of the best hotels in Dubai.

What a wonderful experince. This was absolutely extraordinary since the moment we have stepped in till the moment we have left this beautiful place. We have decided to surprise our friend for her birthday and pamper ourselves with a spa day. The package which has been offered to us included 60 minutes massage, 30 minutes facial, stables visit, pool access... More

15 min to Dubai we have discovered a little green gem. Modern room overlooking the polo field and great infinity pool. Next door there is an outstanding bar which will take you back to an amazing polo clubhouse in Argentina! Brown leather and excellent service across the entire structure. Last but not the least, the spa area! Massage, steam room,... More

One of the most peaceful and calm places in Dubai away from the crowd... The places itself is so relaxing with the surrounding landscape.. Stay and dine are super experiences here.. A vist worth more than a million words.

I stayed recently in Villa Layali, I must admit it was one of the best experiences I have had within a property. Privacy with the perfect amount of exceptional service and quality of product. For someone who travels for a living this was exceptional

By far the worst front desk experience ever, extremely rude employees and manager, have no idea how to deal with customers and definitely I am not coming back after I have been visiting the place for the past 6 years. Never did I ever experience a "hospitality" sector that asks its customers to leave the place before even checking in.... More

I stayed here for a night. The place is quiet and peaceful. It is out of the city without being too far away. The room size is good, the shower is great as are the amenities, but the place really needs some TLC. Stains are starting to show, rugs are curled and a tripping hazard, sheets are not as getting...

If you are looking for a hotel in Dubai with private pool villas then this is the place to go. Outdoor rain showers are not to be missed... pools were a generous size too. The whole place was excellent. Staff were extremely friendly and respectful.

To be honest its a bit late review it was November 2014. Stayed there for 2 nights at the beg of my honeymoon. Loved the place, the private pool villa was just fantastic. Loved everything. But I think more than 2 nights will be very boring. Bit expensive but options were limited back then. Job location not far from airport... More

The location of the hotel is great for so many reasons. The most important one is because it's so close to the Chinese mall. There is a polo field in the same hotel where you can watch the polo team practice sometimes while you relax and drink your tea and enjoy the hotel delicious food.
