First Guests Check-In To One&Only The Palm

Following a successful soft opening in October 2010, the new One&Only The Palm welcomed its first guests earlier this week, marking another milestone in the brand’s expansion in Dubai. The emirate’s most intimate new resort is nestled on a secluded peninsula on the Palm Jumeirah and is a short water taxi or limousine ride away from the mainland, perfectly balancing exclusivity with convenience.


Blending Moorish and Andalusian architecture with contemporary chic interiors, the 90-key resort is spread across the tri-level Manor House, 6 low-rise mansions and 4 private beach villas. Beautifully styled and impeccably furnished, the accommodations feature luxury bedding, spacious marble bathrooms with oversized freestanding bathtubs and rain shower, 46-inch LCD television, high-speed internet access, large workdesk, telephone and offer an outdoor terrace or private pool with access to the beach. The independent, free-standing villas also comprise an entrance foyer, open-plan living space with bar and dining area connected to a private-service kitchenette for the ultimate in privacy and personalized service.


Michelin-starred chef Yannick Alleno provides the culinary direction for One&Only The Palm’s 3 restaurants. Guests will find a fine-dining experience at STAY by Yannick Alleno, where different seating arrangements such as conversation, sharing tables and a pastry library concept are central to the restaurant’s DNA. At ZEST, floor-to-ceiling windows and outdoor seating create an elegant and inviting ambience where live cooking stations prepare Oriental and Middle Eastern cuisine, while the ultra-chic 101 serves light Mediterranean fare to the views of the Dubai skyline.


The all-suite One&Only Spa invites guests to unwind with tailored spa experiences within the tranquil surroundings. Under the expertise of ESPA, discerning guests can indulge in a private Rhassoul experience influenced by time-honoured Arabian tradition in the exclusive Couple Suite, which features a double scrub room and shower, water jets, 2 soaking tubs, treatment beds, private relaxation area and a secluded VIP entrance for ultimate privacy. A dedicated beauty salon incorporates a Pedi:Mani:Cure Studio by established podiatrist Bastien Gonzalez and a hair salon guided by Alexandre Zouari, while the 220-square meter fitness centre boasts state-of-the-art Technogym equipment and an 18-meter outdoor temperature-controlled lap pool flanked by air-conditioned poolside cabanas.
