On my hunt for some of the world’s most luxurious hotels and resorts, The One&Only Royal Mirage and The Palm was definitely at the top of my wishlist. So when I was in Dubai recently I took it upon myself to experience both of the One&Only’s resorts, the Royal Mirage and The Palm.
My day started off by the beach, I soaked in the sun and splashed a few waves whilst enjoying some delicious camel sticks of fresh fruit before a quick change and heading over to the Beach Bar and Grill for a spot of lunch. The food was perfection, I ordered emperor prawns and salad whilst my boyfriend enjoyed lamb chops. Needless to say we could hardly move after eating such a delicious and filling meal but that didn’t stop us from heading over to the pier to be whisked away by boat to the sister hotel on The Palm. I’ve actually always wanted to make this trip by boat, as you can imagine it’s super scenic and a lot quicker then driving. I also love how the service lasts until the evening so you can enjoy a few drinks at Jetty Lounge before heading over for dinner at 101.
The One&Only at The Palm is probably one of my favourite luxury hotels, especially as it’s a boutique hotel too, holding only 90 rooms. It has a very intimate feel with the most relaxing atmosphere I’ve experienced in Dubai so far. One of my favourite aspects has to be their beach front villas and mansions. Perfect for a party of wedding guests or for friends wishing to vacation together in a hotel away from hotel experience. If you do visit the One&Only The Palm, I would highly suggest securing a reservation for renowned chef Yannick Alléno’s restaurant STAY. (It has a Pastry Library! Need I give more of a reason to visit?)
I think the best way to fully understand just how relaxing and wonderful my One&Only experience was is to enjoy my images below, I think they’re more then enough proof that One&Only Royal Mirage and The Palm are both Certified Fabulous. Visit their website for more information.
