With just over 240 rooms, the hotel itself is small by Dubai standards, and refined Islamic architectural details such as pointed arches, stone latticework and traditional woods set the hotel apart from some of its more towering and anonymous neighbours. A calming and refined feel extends further, to the spa - a veritable sanctuary in the heart of the city with its Oriental bathhouses, mosaic-lined hammam and range of restorative treatments. After a relaxing few hours spent here, you may prefer not to venture into the city once more for dinner - the hotel’s six individual dining venues offer ambient settings looking out onto the lake and fountains, with a range of themes including Asian fusion, Argentinian asado, mezze and Arabian high tea.
No compromises are made on space in any of the guest rooms or suites, which comfortably accommodate King-sized beds and boast private balconies or terraces with views of the Old Town Island, the Burj Khalifa or the Dubai Fountains. A neutral palette is complemented by dark wood and brass details, and a selection of suites offer separate living areas, extended balconies and lavish details.
Though there is no Kid’s Club at the hotel, there is a dedicated children’s swimming pool, and the wealth of leisure activities next door at the Dubai Mall will offer plenty to keep younger visitors entertained. The generously sized guest rooms mean up to two children under the age of 11 can be accommodated in all room categories, and families with older children can opt for the Imperial Suite with capacity for up to eight people. Babysitting an also be arranged.
WEDDINGS & HONEYMOONS
Couples can choose from a wealth of different wedding packages to celebrate their big day at The Palace, taking advantage of the memorable backdrops of the Dubai fountains or the lakeside gardens. Honeymooners will also find plenty of venues for romantic meals next to the dazzling fountains, plus a concierge to arrange a hot air balloon flight over the dunes or bedouin picnic in the desert.
