Dubai Desert Palm Review  

Chic luxury in the midst of perfectly manicured polo fields. The 28 suites are complemented by private pool villas, each with a unique view of the outlying stark desert that collides with fantastic lush fields. Polo lessons are provided for the expert and novice alike (for an extra fee), plus you can indulge in nature walks, cookery classes and even wine tasting. And for the ultra-recluse for whom being out of town isn’t enough, you can hide away in a pool villa with its own infinity pool and walled garden. Admittedly, for those looking to sample Dubai’s legendary nightlife there are better locations (even the nearest beach is over an hour away). But for a little slice of old-school, pampered Dubai living, the Desert Palm has it all.

The essentials

  • Lime Spa offers spa rituals, facials, massages and more across six spa suites. There’s also a menu of treatments for kids and even an eyebrow designer on hand for every cosmetic whim you might have.
  • A communal infinity pool overlooks one of the polo fields, where you can simply let yourself relax. There’s also a fitness centre on site.
  • If you fancy a little nibble without a full meal, all-day dining restaurant Epicure also has a posh deli where you can take away bits.

Dubai Desert Palm is just so unexpected and you would have no idea you were just outside the heart of Dubai.

Here are some of my pictures from when we stayed a few month ago

So on arrival we decided to treat our self to a bit of fiz and enjoy the wonderful surrounding.

We check into our room, got changed, headed to the pool for some R&R and ordered a bottle of wine to enjoy in the afternoon sun

So probably the best part of the hotel is the pool – its small but so peaceful and they have these awesome floats

The hotel has a spa and gym where you can hire bikes and go on a set trail

And then we had to go home 🙁

 

Desert Palm is a well-kept secret city escape, only 15 minutes from Dubai’s gilded centre

Innovative design and garden surrounds take Arabia to unexpected new territory – understated luxury.

Retreat from the silver peaks and endless dunes to chic spaces, distinct flavours and the manicured grounds of a 160-acre polo estate.
