Sofitel Dubai The Palm Resort & Spa 

Family fun on The Palm

Stylish Polynesian interiors, impeccable service and picture-perfect views over the Arabian Gulf.

Combine a peaceful beach break with the chance to explore the thriving city from this hotel on Dubai’s iconic Palm Jumeirah. Wide-open interiors adorned with cool marble lead the way to pretty gardens, where swaying palms line the huge freeform swimming pool and open up to peaceful views of the Indian Ocean. While the private beach is ideal for sun worshippers, there’s also plenty to keep active guests entertained. Go on an exhilarating boat excursion or cool off in one of the six swimming pools. After getting your adrenaline pumping, pay a visit to the spa, where a sauna, Jacuzzi, hammam and a range of treatments pave the way for relaxation.
