Blown away!”

Service, style, bed!

For some unknown reason, I did not have very high expectation for this hotel. Wow, how wrong I was! We stayed for a wedding and were blown away by the subtle class and elegance of the hotel. The rooms have a vaguely Japanese theme to them, bed was so ridiculously comfortable with 2783678236 thread count sheets (ok, maybe a little exaggeration there... but something close to that), bathroom did not have a bath tub, but was lovely nonetheless. I love that they have a cocktail station in the mini-bar, seriously cool stuff. The ipod station and Bang & Olufsen speakers just ooze high-class. I love this hotel because it's not "trying" to be luxurious - it just is. There are no giant multi-coloured chandeliers, just laid-back contemporary style. Have to mention the spa - brilliant, at very reasonable rates. They even have an "experience" area with scented steam room, ice room, ice plunge pool, scented showers, etc. All-in-all, one of the best hotel stays we've had in years. We will be back!

Relaxing short stay”

Designer room, stunning view, top class spa

Good directions to the resort! The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I went on a weekday so it was very quiet. The room was amazing and the view of Dubai from the room was breathtaking!!! The food in the restaurant was good but not great - the drinks were great though. The spa was soooo relaxing - worth every penny. The staff were skilled and attentive and afterwards we could watch the horses being exercised outside from the comfort of the spa.

Polo match, Nice room, Good restaurant

I enjoy the staying at the Deseart Palm. The polo match is definately the signature of the resort. It's a quiet and elegent resort for relaxing since the location is a bit isolated. But I like it very much since the hotel can provide everything I need.

complete Privacy and best service”

Luxury, privacy and escape

one of the best resorts ive ever experienced,what i liked most is the privacy and the polo suit was worth every Dirham, it was un unforgetable night and they have fully decorated my room with romantic flowers as it was our anniversary, they do appreciate their customers satisfaction. everthing was perfect and if there is anything negative i have to say then it would only be that suits are connected by a door and if two different families are in there then even the slightest sound become a noise for the others while they are asleep. but over all. one of the best escapes to experience specially if you are looking for relaxation and privacy..

Das Personal ist sehr aufmerksam, dezent und freundlich. Das Essen ist eher teuer, aber dafür hervorragend. Das Zimmer war riesig (80 qm) und topmodern.

Fantastic design - stunning guest rooms - Great food - attention to detail and fantastic staff
None - an amazing four night stay

Our stay at the desert palm was for my birthday and it really was faultless and we are both extremely fussy guests. All of the staff that we encountered couldnt do enough to help and assist while not becoming overbearing. The room, pool, spa were all stunning - and any one considering a getaway break from Dubai should definately add this hotel to their shortlist

Private Pool”

Private pool, large and spacious villa, nice lobby area

If you're looking for a place where you could swim completely privately in Dubai, then this is the place for you. On the other hand, I believe that this hotel is quite over priced for what it offers. When we arrived at our villa, we found our garden full of trash from whoever had it before us and some of the chairs had old stains. We were able to find rooms with the same price at a much better and more luxurious hotel, the only difference was that Desert Palm offered a completely private pool whereas the other one was open to the desert.
