Set amid the lush green fields of a private polo estate, the Desert Palm brings understated and sensual chic to Dubai, subtly merged with the elegant forms of local architecture and design.
This small, intimate and peaceful boutique hotel comes complete with the idyllic location just minutes from the centre of Dubai and its airport.
Choice of rooms
Thanks to the contemporary, sophisticated interior design by Miaja Design House, the hotel has been described as ‘Arabia avant-garde’.
Guests can choose from the range of the stylish and well-decorated suites and villas. Overlooking the polo fields and the Dubai skyline are the Palm Suites. Then there are Pool Villas or the two-bedroomed Pool Residences, complete with large pool, outdoor dining area and sunbathing deck. Finally there is the ultimate luxury of the exclusive presidential villa Layali with private roof terrace.
All rooms feature modern interiors and come with designer amenities and high-tech electronics—like the 40-inch flat screen television sets and Bang & Olufsen surround sound.
All provide complete privacy and indulgent luxury.
Dining, spa… and Polo
As one of the world’s first boutique polo hotels, Desert Palm comes with a 150-acre polo estate with four fields, stables and a riding school—and leisure riding excursions are available too.
Guests have a choice of two award-winning restaurants. Rare serves a fresh seafood and vegetarian options, whilst Epicure Gourmet Market, by the infinity pool, offers a vast range of pastries, salads, pastas, and wood-fired pizzas. Traditional afternoon tea and in-villa dining are also available.
The LIME Spa completes the Desert Palm experience. Spa offers intuitive massages, organic facials and beauty treatments—in large rooms overlooking the polo fields.
The hotel is a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World.
