“As stated by many others - the ideal hotel w/in a hotel - great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

One of the best parts is that the residences of the Residence can use all the facilities at all the other restaurants. It is luxurious, quiet with great service and really beautiful and large rooms.

The beach is nice and the pool is quiet - a great refuge from the hustle bustle of Dubai.

Will plan to stay here again.

I chose this hotel to propose to my girlefriend at the weekend and so glad I did. My other alternative was the Burj al Arab. Al Qasr or Mina Salam but I felt these were too big and brash.
The proposal was a surprise over lunch at 101 which is a restaurant on the One and Only on the Palm. During my booking of the hotel and restaurant reservations all the staff were so helpful and incredibly accomodating. I received phone calls from the Manager of the hotel, the F&B Manager at the One and Only on the Palm, I spoke to the GM of the whole place who was also incredibly helpful. They all went above and beyond to make sure our special occasion went smoothly and to ensure we had a fantastic time.
The Residence only has around 45-50 rooms so you feel you are staying somewhere quite intimate even though you have easy access to the Royal Mirage and Arabian Courtyard either side, plus the One and Only on the Palm which is a 5 minute boat ride.
If you are looking for really excellent and personal service in smaller hotel atmosphere then this is the place to get it in Dubai. Unlike other hotels in the Emirate it is only 3 stories high and although the decor is sumptuous it is not the 'in your face bling' that is so synonomous elsewhere.
We were sad to leave but we will forever remember our engangement weekend at the Residence.

Recently returned from the residence 200% as ever have been going there every year since it has opened, we have stayed in many hotels around the world but none on them beat the residence, all the teams are so attentive from the gardener to the manager, thank you again for making our stays so memorable, looking forward to being "home" again in June

I stayed here for a lonjg weekend in March after a few days of business in the CBD. The Residence was the pick of the three options and proved to be a wise choice.

The pool and beach were superb as was the service.

There are many dining options across the resort and I would certainly return.

Room Tip: I would recommend a ground floor room which opens out to the gardens

My husband and I stayed at the Residence & Spa in March for a week. It was nice to be in the smaller Residence but have access to all facilities in the Arabian Palace and Palace. The rooms are lovely and the staff offer first class room service. We enjoyed the beach area. The beach team were very attentive and always made you feel welcome. The Dining Room, sometimes the service was slow and we witnessed guests complaining although this was not a great concern to us. We tried most of the other restaurants during our stay and we enjoyed them all. Our only fault we could find was the noise on the creek as often during our stay large 'party boats' came near the beach blazing extremely loud music. One day during our stay it was so ridiculous it cleared the beach! We appreciate this is a circumstance beyond the Managements control and the Manager did say they are trying to combat this problem. It would however not put us off any further stays at the Residence and will definitely return in the future.

We stayed here last year with our daughters and it was so wonderful we have booked again! In particular the service is outstanding - All the staff take a personal interest in you. eg We had booked a desert trip thru Virgin - on the day we waited and waited and nothing happened - front desk phoned the company who said they were on their way - when phoned again they said they had never received our booking and it was now too late to collect us! - we were very disappointed as we were going home the next day and could not rebook. However the front desk staff had already foreseen this possibility, had phoned another tour company whose director personally came and fetched us and took us out into the desert to meet up with their tour! The food is excellent and if on half board you can also dine on a fixed price menu in several of the other restaurants in the hotels on either side, however the Residence's dining room serves a wonderful variety of top quality food so we only ventured out once! It is a hotel for a complete chill out with a wonderful pool, someone comes around at regular intervals, serving complimentary fruit etc, they even offer to clean your sunglasses! It's expensive but you definitely get what you pay for - our best hotel

Room Tip: There are only two floors - the ground floor rooms have a patio and the Ist floor a balcony

My wife and I stayed at the Residence & Spa after seeking out a small boutique style hotel in Dubai. We were not disappointed, from the moment we arrived we knew we had picked the right place.

The attention to detail is first class, every member of the staff knows who you are!

The hotel only has 42 rooms and is nestled between the larger Palace and Arabian court - it is an oasis of calm.

The Dining room serves excellent food and a nice touch is that Chef makes a point to come and speak to guests to check all is OK and asks if there is anything special you would like him to prepare. Something we took him up on and he delivered!

We shall certainly be going back, with Dubai being so close to the UK it makes for a great long weekend location.
