“Absolutely amazing!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2012

We arrived at this hotel in the middle of the night, immediately I was blown away by the stunning lobby area and the greeting and welcome we received. We knew straight away that we were in for an amazing stay!!
We went to our room where our luggage was already waiting for us and again were massively impressed. It was a huge room with stunning decor, very arabian in style and certainly not dated as a previous reviewer wrote!! It was absolutely spotless and had everything we needed. We got up in the morning and went out onto our enormous balcony, we overlooked the gardens and the sea.
Breakfast was amazing, more choice than I have ever seen and very attentive staff. In the day time the hotel was even more stunning. The pool area is gorgeous, with amazing bed areas, the pool boys come round with water for you and will clean your sunglasses. It is such a stylish place, I cant really express how wonderful it was. We have stayed at a One and Only before so had high expectations and the hotel certainly exceeded them from start to finish. We used the concierge service to book the Burj Khalifa at no service charge which was good! Location wise, it takes about 15-20 minutes to get off the palm so if you feel you want to be out and about the whole time then bear that in mind. We did use the shuttle boat service to get to the other One & Only properties on the mainland so thats quite useful .
Overall I would say that it is absolutely worth every penny and certainly won't disappoint!!!!!!

My husband and I travelled for 8 days holiday to O&O the Palm in August. We needed a rest and a break, and it could not have been more perfect. It is a tranquil setting at the end of the Palm, with fabulous facilities, beautiful rooms, pool and exquisite food. The staff were friendly and so helpful allowing us early entry to our room and offering us every assistance possible.

The gym was brilliant with the excellent Joevan providing help and encouragement as and when required.

The staff remembered our names, our table and drinks preferences, the sushi chef in particular was amazing and produced wonderful offerings when he discovered we loved his food.

The pool is beautiful clean and cool, especially necessary due to the extene heat.

If you want a tranquil break in the ultimate luxury this is the place to go

My wife and I had a short break in Dubai and it was the best hotel I have stayed in. We ate at the Burj and enjoyed our meal but the class and style of The one and only meant I was happy we'd chosen it over the Burj where we have stayed previously. We arrived early and were given a poolside cabana/ bungalow until our room was ready, a very nice touch. Our room when ready was delightful, the balcony overlooking the pool was a pleasure to wake up to.
We ate breakfast outside, sipped Green tea and had an array of top quality food in the sun. The pool was very chilled and quiet a 30 second walk to the beach and although I'm not a fan of the bath water sea in Dubai I enjoyed it. Book the bar/ restaurant on the sea and take a boat ride to the other resort and enjoy their bar. Great break will be back.

My Wife and I visited this lovely resort in August - very hot and humid but if you like the heat this place is perfect. Not really suited for families although there is a Kid's club for younger children and other guests commented that it was very good. The Palm appears to be a bit cooler than the Jumeriah Beach area - perhaps as its not 'inland' and there was quite a breeze in the evening. The French restaurant Stay was exceptional and the other restaurant/breakfast area (Zest) was beautifully done. Pool area super with high quality Day Beds and loungers and also Cabana rooms to rent if required (complete with TV etc!). Bedrooms really well done and very generously sized.

Overall, a fantastic trip!

The One&Only Palm Island was the finale to our great safari trip to East Africa. This hotel epitomizes the current state of luxury in world-class hotels: spacious rooms, beautiful and understated decor, spa-like bathrooms, and every other amenity (plush beds, great technology).

The service was perfection: well-trained, low-key, and friendly. There were staff members everywhere, seemingly more staff than guests.

The included breakfast was one of the best I have encountered in the world. The pool was lovely.

The major drawback of this hotel (or plus, depending on your point of view) is the location. It is at the very tip of the circular island that surrounds the palm of Palm Island. As a result it can take 15 minutes just to get off the island before you start on your real journey to anywhere else in Dubai.

Overall, an excellent stay!

Room Tip: It is a big property, so I would recommend requesting a room in the main building, The Manor House...
