The hotel is located on the Palm Jumeirah development, a man-made collection of islands in the shape of a palm tree jutting out into the Arabian Gulf. With its unique location, the Fairmont The Palm is able to offer stunning views and a very large private beach from which to enjoy them. It's like being in the middle of one of the world's most desirable cities and on a secluded tropical island all at the same time.

The hotel itself features a palatial appearance on the outside, where numerous palm trees surround both the building and the delightful pool area which is set on the edge of the private beach. Inside, the design is crisp and cool with running water featured in many of the public spaces to create and oasis-like atmosphere. The large guest rooms are luxurious and comfortable and many feature large balconies that overlook the beach and the city skyline beyond.

With many fine dining options, any stay at the Fairmont The Palm is guaranteed to be a culinary success. In addition to the large and varied buffet offered at Flow Kitchen and the fine seafood and salads at the beach-side dining room, the Sea Grill at 25 Degrees, you can also choose from other eateries offering everything from Brazilian specialties to pizza to my favorite, a wide array of fabulous pastries. If all of that isn't enough, there's always the chance to take a break from the hot afternoon sun with the sophisticated afternoon tea service at the hotel's Mashrabiya Lounge. After dinner, a visit to the Cigar Room for a cigar and whiskey pairing is a special way to end the day.

For additional pampering, the Willow Stream spa at the Fairmont The Palm is well worth a visit. Their signature Caviar and Pearl service is the perfect treat to enjoy while traveling in glamorous Dubai but many classic services with roots from around the world are available as well. With many activities available for guests to enjoy, including a visit to the first-rate gym on the property or getting your aerobic workout outdoors in the Aqua Spinning class, you will be glad to know a massage at the Willow Stream spa is never too far away.

Fairmont The Palm Dubai offers a satisfying taste of true luxury.
