Desert Dreams at One&Only The Palm Dubai

Sponsored by

Take a vintage safari into the Dubai desert for dinner under the stars

Lit up at night by lanterns, the horseshoe arches, Moors-inspired sandstone villas and floral motifs already exude a shimmering sense of an untouched Arabia. But this is just the beginning… The Heritage Desert Safari beckons you to board a vintage 1950s Land Rover which, with a professional guide and driver from trusted partner Platinum Heritage, will escort you out to the shifting dunes of the Dubai desert. Dinner under the stars is served from a Bedouin camp at dusk, just as the amber sun sinks behind the endless sands. After dinner, watch traditional displays of music and dance with a sublime cup of authentic Arabic coffee. The gentle flames of the traditional lamps flicker, the stars wink like jewels in the sky and you’re at the centre of an ancient, timeless piece of the Arabia of dunes and dreams.

Located within gardens of verdant tropical bloom, One&Only The Palm welcomes guests to a serene residential environment with exquisitely styled low-rise mansions and beachfront villas surrounding the Manor House and pool.

Each of the impeccably furnished rooms and suites features an outdoor terrace or balcony, while free-standing two-bedroom private beachfront villas with private pools offer the ultimate in luxury and privacy.

Guests are invited to tantalise their palates with perfectly prepared cuisine at ZEST and STAY under the culinary guidance of Michelin-starred chef Yannick Alléno. Late-night cocktails and Mediterranean fare can be enjoyed in the chic 101 Dining Lounge and Marina located within the resort’s private yacht marina, with boat transfers to sister property One&Only Royal Mirage.

The resort offers a myriad of unparalleled amenities including a swimming pool with daybeds and five private air-conditioned cabanas, an adults-only pool and private beach. Wellness facilities include a Guerlain Spa with nine treatment suites, state-of the-art fitness centre with Kinesis training stations, tennis court, Bastien Gonzalez Pedi:Mani:Cure Studio and a pampering beauty salon by Alexandre Zouari.

Younger guests are equally amused with a superb KidsOnly programme, specially designed with fully-supervised activities and entertainment.
