“Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

We stayed at Residence & Spa of One & Only Royal Mirage for 2 nights in December 2013. Our stay there was truly exceptional. The staff is extremely nice. The rooms and the facilities are amazing. Residence & Spa is all about tranquility and luxury. Of course, this paradise comes at a cost. But I don't regret a single Dirham I paid. I'll certainly stay there again next time I'm in Dubai.

This was a truely amazing experience from beginning to end!! The staff where amazing and the hotel/decor was out of this world!!

When your sharing hotel pools and bars with celebs like Teddy Sherringham you know it's good!

This hotel is close to everything you need with an amazing private beach..

A dream

We decided to stay in the one and only in dubai, because we had such an amazing experience from the one in the maldives. The actual rooms and service in the hotel was a pleasant one breakfast was good the rooms were very nice close to the beach and pool. The one BIG negative of this stay was my spa experience and the way we were treated. I decided to have a pregnancy massage (which i would not recommend) and after a moisturising mask was put on my body, i felt a stinging sensation which i did vocalise to the therapist who said its normal. After the treatment my skin was burning i went straight to my room for a cold shower, and a couple of hours later i was left with a rash all over my body. I thought this would subside by the next day but it did not, so i rang the spa who sent up the spa manger and therapist to my room to see my skin which was visibly red and had a lumpy rash- i had an allergic reaction to the treatment. The spa manager came up after 3 hours even though she had said she's coming up within the next 15 minutes, and gave me a look over and said its not from the spa and she cant do anything. I was very disappointed in the service received from a 5* hotel such as the One and Only. Very angry and disappointed in the lack of empathy given by the staff i said i wanted to speak to the manager, who took another hour to see us in the reception, not in the room. The manager just like the spa manager was rude and said nobody has had a problem with this treatment, bewildering me as i had blatantly had an allergic reaction and nobody even seemed to care, and as a fact not everybody experiences allergies its a random thing which happens. He seemed to ignore everything we were saying not even saying the word "sorry for the inconvenience we will look into the treatment" was offered just a cold reply. I am EXTREMELY disappointed and even though we regularly go to the maldives one and only reethi rah we will NEVER return to this brand of hotel, never have i been treated like this at any of the 5 and 7 star hotels me and my husband have stayed in. Would not recommend because of poor management and customer service.

We have been going to the Residence and Spa in Dubai now for 10 years. This exquisite 'small hotel' is a true oasis in every sense of the word; welcoming, warm and most of all efficient. We always stay in a 'roof-top terrace suite' which is decorated and furnished to the highest quality yet still has a warm ambiance. Some hotels as the years go on get a little worn round the edges, but the Residence just gets better and better; always refurbishing and updating. Subtle changes which upgrade the Residence more and more on each visit albeit new pool furniture or, new cushions in your room and Wi-Fi in every crook and cranny. Yes, subtle but the 'Residence is always striving for perfection. I must mention 'the Dining Room'. On our first visits we would use the dining room a couple of times during the course of our visit, now we eat there nearly every evening. The food is inventive (without being fussy) and delicious to boot! In fact, I compare 'The Dining Room' to any top London Restaurant in excellence! Last, but not least the staff whether it be room service to management are friendly and efficient; everyone works together to make your stay with them trouble free and memorable.

'Je reviendrai'

Dear Residence & Spa thank you for making our vacation the best one ever in our lifes.

We visited this hotel in november and its has been a first class experience. Everything was better then we ever could have expected. The service,food,quality in every detail. If you are searching for peace and quiet and like to be spoiled this is the best option in Dubai.
We travelled with our 6 months old daughter and they made an amazing effort helping us in every way. I would recommend to go here if you have quiet kids or before they start running around to much. Otherwise maybe the Palace is a better option, its more activities for kids there.

Rooms
All rooms are good, this is very unsual for a hotel. We liked the rooms on ground floor because you have a little garden outside your balcony. Some like the rooms on the second floor better because its more private. Be aware that the rooms are not modern up to date style if you want this choose One&Only The Palm) At The Residence the rooms are more luxury old fashion style but extremly spacious. We loved especially the bathroom.

The Staff
Wow, all of the staff do there best to make sure you have a good time.But in a very personal way. Our host Nikhill was amazing and helped us with everything we needed.

Location and beach
The beach and the pool its so private and beatiful. Location is also good on the beach between the Palace and Arabian Court.

We hope that we will have the possibillity to return soon.

We have been regular visitors to The One and Only Royal Mirage (Residence) for the last 5 years and every single time we've visited we feel like we have truly gone home. The welcome you receive from the front of house staff makes you feel like the most important guest ever to have stayed there. The rooms are spacious but homely, meticulously designed in a modern Arabian style which gives them a cozy feel that you don't usually get in hotels, and every night you are welcomed to bed with a little late night sweet or treat next to your turned down bed. Every room in The Residence is stocked with Molten Brown toiletries which are topped up every day, the TV has a great variety of channels including movie channels, and the balcony a on the ground floor open up onto the beautiful gardens which are graced by wandering peacocks.

The food is fantastic wherever you chose to eat, whether it's in The Residence or at one of the many restaurants in the rest of The One and Only's hotel sections. The staff are really fantastic and play a huge part in your experience at the hotel. They are friendly and chatty but know when when to leave you to yourself. They have never failed to deliver the kind of first rate service you would expect from a hotel of this standard.

The pool area is tranquil and thoroughly relaxing, and literally a stones throw from your room which is really handy. Again, first rate service around the pool, as you would expect.

All together this is the most relaxing place we have visited, and we travel very frequently. We visit The One and Only at least twice a year and it has really come to feel like a home from home. We really do recommend it!

Wow, wow, wow! I was very emotional when leaving! The place is like heaven. OMG. The service of the staff was absolutely perfect, made us feel very welcoming. I didnt even go out to do activities! Just a nice and relaxing romantic holiday with the other half. 5 star for sure!
