“Amazing Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

A short review as I could wax lyrical about this hotel all day. This hotel is without doubt the best hotel I have ever stayed in. It has got the blend of luxury, intimacy and service bang on. All areas of the hotels are spotless and every single member of staff are extremely friendly and not in a false way.
Its an expensive place, accommodation, drinks food etc. but you certainly get what you pay for.
already booked for next year !

Room Tip: All room are excellent and huge whether they are in the grounds mansions or the manor house

Ever keen to avoid the UK's cold winters, most years we inevitably end up in Dubai. We have tried many of the hotels along Jumeirah beach and for a change this time, we booked The One & Only The Palm. It is almost certainly the best hotel in the area - certainly the best we have visited.

Situated and the furthest most point on The Palm and with only 90 rooms, it is quiet and exclusive - not something that could be said about most of Dubai's large hotels. The consequence is that breakfast time is relaxed and peaceful; the beach and pool are quiet and calm, with plenty of sun beds, it is possible to have a real 'get away from it all' experience

Rooms are either in the main 'Manor House' block or in one of 8 or so small 'mansions' each containing 6 rooms. The room are all larger than average and the designs and finish are exceptional with the best rain shower I have ever experienced

My only small criticism would be that, although there are plenty of staff, organisation in the restaurants is a little haphazard resulting in some slow service - but I'm on holiday so who cares? I also felt the quality of the food could have been better.

So in the end, it's a fairly easy decision: hustle and bustle or calm and quiet. For a few days away, for me it's an easy decision - One & Only The Palm every time! A world class resort.

Room Tip: Try for a sea view, but all rooms are bigger than standard

This is my favorite hotel in the world! My husband and i visited for our one year wedding anniversary in October.

From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty, the staff were so welcoming. We arrived at 8am and our room was not yet ready so we were given some delicious juice and checked in, then we went and had some breakfast (which was amazing and in a gorgeous setting) and by 11am our room was ready.

The hotel is in a beautiful spot, a bit further from the mainland than others however that means that you benefit from feeling secluded and it is very private. All the restaurants at the hotel are amazing and food was delicious.

The pool area is simply stunning, with beds by the pool and sun loungers too. There is great service by the pool with staff coming to offer you ice water, fresh fruit and even clean your sunglasses.

Overall I would highly recommend this hotel, we will definitely be returning!

What a fabulous room and bathroom. What helpful and delightful staff. What a glorious swimming pool area (may I clean your sun glasses Madam?!) What a lovely beach and comfortable sun beds. Yummy food too. Do try their 101 Restaurant also - you will be taken by buggy and the atmosphere is delightful - the food excellent - and the view of the Dubai sky line at night quite amazing.

Room Tip: We had a garden room on the ground floor - faultless!

We stayed at the one&only Palm Jumeirah Hotel in Dubai & I must say that this is by far the best hotel I have ever stayed in! The hotel is filled with elegance & style of the highest order!! (So much attention to detail) From the minute you arrive you are treated like royalty you are waited on hand & foot! That's why this hotel carries a 5* plus rating!

I have never seen a hotel where the staff are constantly cleaning the candle arbours & lighting them every evening - where you have your very own personal butler to pander to your every need & where you can immerse yourself in pure indulgence This is Dubal at its very best!!

Tip :- If you like using hotel Spas book yourself in for a Razoul massage!

I stayed in the hotel during my engagement anniversary for 2 nights and it was an excellent hotel for such occasions. It is quite, comfortable with romantic atmosphere. I reserved Palm Beach Premiere, and I was upgraded to Palm Beach Junior Suite.

The suite was very wide with large bed, dressing room, large bathroom a sitting area and a balcony that is come in front of the palm beach. It was a luxurious stay in that room, very quite and stay totally away from the city with stunning view of the beach. The hotel arranged my room for the occasion with nice bed arrangement and very tasty cake.

The F&B in the hotel is very good. I had a breakfast in the room, and it was coming with a wide range of tasty options. The room service was not up to that extend. I had also a nice drink at 101 lounge during the sunset. I also had some snacks at the hotel lounge and it was very tasty.

I had also a treatment at the spa for an hour, but it was not up to my expectation, however my wife had also a treatment with a female theosophist and she said that it was her best treatment ever.

Overall, the hotel is excellent with a very friendly staff and you will always hear the word "certainly" and I feel it is a part of their code of conduct.

Room Tip: Choose beach side villas room as they are very quite with nice view

We went to Dubai in July this year and stayed at this hotel
It is divided into 2 parts, The Palace & The Arabian Court. We stayed in the Arabian Court, we were very happy with this choice as it was quieter, Id probably describe it as better for an older age group, if you want to relax as i thad a very becalming atmosphere
The palace side was very Hip and had a younger vibe with a nightclub. You can easily travel between both with shuttles. Both sections are full of magnificent Persian/ Arabian antiques and furnishings.These hotels are mind blowing, just so beautifully and luxuriously designed.
Our room was large with a beautiful bathroom, loads of room, a large comfortable bed. Service was outstanding, the staff are sweet and obliging, especially in the tea room, where you felt you were transported back in time to an elegant world of high tea and sophistication.
Of course the weather is hot, there are large pools, in both sides and direct access to the gulf. We really enjoyed the Indian inspired restaurant Ninas, The cocktail bar on top of the Arabian Court resort was the perfect place for sunset cocktails.I wouldn't recommend the guided bus tour to the museum, shopping or recreated village. It was so disorganized and took absolute hours. Just get a taxi to take you to these places, the museum was well worth a visit, and the shopping centers, well they are what Dubai is famous for. I certainly would stay at this resort again, the perfect place for that stopover visit.
