The Desert Palm is a perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Dubai, without having to go too far, but it really feels a million miles away. The hotel is very stylish. The contemporary style (with equestrian touches) works well and it feels very exclusive. I booked a Palm Suite which was gorgeous. However, it overlooked the terrace at the back of the hotel, which made it really noisy during the evening. There weren't even that many people outside, but the noise echoed up to the room (note the hotel has only 2 floors). The music and chatter were such a distraction that I called to reception to ask what time the bar closes - 2am!! I'm not a complainer but I had come to relax. The management were quick to respond asked if I wanted to move rooms but the room they showed me was no better as it still overlooked the terrace but was just further along. Eventually after showing me another room which was a lower category, they moved me to a Polo Suite which was perfect. It's the same layout as the Palm Suite, but just overlooks the polo field, so was quiet and away from the main building. The room was large and well equipped, the bathroom is amazing, half the size of the room. I ate in Rare and Epicure, the food in both places was great. The service was good without being in your face. The pool area is gorgeous, the infinity pool overlooks the polo field, and you can relax on the floating lazy boys - nice touch! The pool side service was wonderful; Voss water and refeshing sorbets on the house. The spa was excellent, I had a couple of treatments and they were happy to tailor-make around my preferences and the time I had available. Note that the resort is just off a main road and you can hear the traffic! You tune it out very quickly but it's worth mentioning. It really was a wonderful break and I would go back in a heart beat (but would book a polo suite this time to be away from the bar).
