Excellent as always. My 15th stay at the One and Only Royal Mirage, my 2nd stay in this particular part of the hotel. Started in Palace when my son was younger, moved into the Arabian Court when he got a bit older, now he has to be at work whilst we can holiday whenever we like, we're enjoying the peace and relaxation of the Residence. Particularly like turning up anytime for dinner and your table is always ready, as well as the ability to ask chef Freddie (fabulous Freddie) for whatever you fancy. Also had curry 'delivered' from Ninas, Thai meals from Eau Zone. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone. Couldn't be happier with our stay.

Stayed: September 2015

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for sharing your experience years after years at One&Only Royal Mirage. Indeed grateful to read that you highlighted your appreciation with regards to your relaxing and peaceful stay at the Residence & Spa.

Chef Freddy and his team which are like family to many, do indeed make a personal difference by consistently providing genuine care and unformatted service in order to convey your desired culinary experience.

Also, we concur with you that indeed our resort, boast 3 distinctive properties, respectively The Palace with 235 rooms and suites, the Arabian Court with 172 rooms and suites, as you stated the elegant “Boutique styled” Residence & Spa with 48 prestige rooms and one 2-bedroom beach garden villa. All these properties stretched on a kilometre of private beach and 65 acres of beautiful lush landscaped gardens.

We value all your comments which are shared with the respective departments and look forward to your return visit in a not too distant future.

Kind Regards
Management Team
One&Only Royal Mirage, Dubai.

The Residence & Spa is a small, spacious, low-rise property of detached buildings, sitting between the Arabian Court and Palace, all part of the O&O Royal Mirage complex, on a long and large private beach, and across the water from The Palm.
The Residence is beautiful, and excellently managed, to the highest-possible standards, in every way.
It's clearly one of the top hotels in the world, and benefits from Dubai's climate.
Breakfast and dinner in the Dining Room, or on the terrace are very good, afternoon tea in the Library is delightful.
The suites are faultless, service is exemplary, and the huge staff is courteous, well-trained, and efficient, without exception; the butler service is a nice touch, if a little irrelevant.
Dining is also available in the adjacent O&O hotels; Celebrities is fine dining in a beautiful dining room, with slightly over-fussy food and staff; Tagines is a splendid Moroccan concept with excellent food and staff in a most unique setting; Eauzone is a rather less-impressive affair, on the beach front, with a much more confused service offering, in a much more casual setting than the others.
Health and Spa facilities are first-class, and the Residence pool and pool area are extraordinarily nice to relax in comfort and privacy.
Observations - the O&O and its beach sit across the water from the vast building site which continues to develop on The Palm - it is not a pretty setting for a beach - not the hotel's fault, but be aware.
The channel outside the O&O is busy, so don't expect a peaceful dip, and at the weekend, the water is pretty frantic with water toys of many shapes and sizes - this is not therefore a good place to water-ski. I am a reasonably accomplished water skier, and I was unimpressed by the equipment, and level of the expertise of the water-sports team, particularly on such a frantic stretch of water.
For three days of our stay, we endured booze cruises moored off the hotel beach, blasting out rock music for a few hours at a time, and in addition, there was so much jet bike activity on the water, it was like trying to relax in the pit-lane at a Moto GP.
As a footnote, the in-room minibar prices are eye-wateringly high - I thought most hotels had gone beyond this practice, but not the O&O.
In general a beautiful, high-end place to stay, notwithstanding the above, but the water-front scene is a let-down.

Stayed: October 2015

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your observation with regards to our restaurants, with eight venues and our trendy beach “The Jetty Lounge”, each does indeed convey a distinctive style according to the purpose of your exciting culinary desire.

Also, grateful to read that you appreciated the facilities of our Health & Beauty Institute, the dedicated service at our private Residence & Spa pool and the beautiful garden surroundings.

We concur with you that over the weekend the private yacht and leisure crafts adjacent to the Dubai Marina and in front of our beach, is one we attempt to monitor through Dubai Authorities. It does mirror the St. Tropez and Ibiza scene which at times we could wish to be reduced.

We value your comments and suggestions which are shared with all and look forward to welcome you back in a not too distant future.

Kind Regards
Management Team

I first stayed at Residence and spa in March of 2013. Thus began my love affair. With the hotel and with my boyfriend then, husband now. We landed in Dubai in the early morning hours and were taken to our beautiful hotel by the Emirates limo service.
When I first walked into the reception and then out in the courtyard, I was immediately in love with this beautiful place. The fountains, gardens, birds chirping in the palm trees above you as you eat your delicious breakfast, sipping a perfect cappuccino… The beach and the Arabian Gulf just a few steps away. It is paradise.

The restaurant at the Residence, called The Dining room is equally great for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They also have very good complimentary high tea service in the afternoon with some very good treats.
The rooms and suites are furnished in a combination of Arabian and contemporary furnishings. They are all beautiful with great views over amazing landscaping, to the Dubai skyline and the ocean.

The service. The service is what really sets this place apart. Everybody knows your name in one day, and they remember it every time you come back, asking about family members that were with you last time. Everybody is very polite and professional, they remember what kind of coffee and juice you like in the morning to your taxi preferences, etc.
The front desk staff is also really great as are all the waiters, housekeepers, spa therapists.

Pool is beautiful, the beach is amazing, the architecture, landscaping, rooms, spa, view, everything…

I go to Dubai at least twice a year and I always stet there. I tried some other top hotels and resorts there, but I always come back here. It really feels like a second home.
That said, I am writing this review about the Residence. The rest of Royal Mirage is also nice, but not as great or as private as The Residence and Spa part.
Looking forward to going back in November. It is most definitely the very best place to stay in Dubai. you are close to everything, but still have a feeling you are at a paradise beach resort...

My husband and I have stayed at this hotel over 20 times, it is friendly, immaculate, beautiful, relaxing and the food is brilliant.
The beach has designated wonderful cabanas 20 metres from each other on a practically empty beach, perfect sand, the beach boys serve us with cold flannels, dishes of fruit, dishes of ice cream, ice buckets of water and clean your glasses, to cap it all we have designated cabanas round the pool just in case we should want one.

Room Tip: All rooms have sea view plus the amazing gardens, all rooms have everything one could want.
