An inviting private beach, exemplary service and range of facilities suiting everyone from couples to families to business guests: it’s easy to understand why the Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah is one of the region’s most popular properties. Rooms are decorated in creams and whites with mint and wood accents, evoking an overall sense of calm. The 2,000-square-metre spa offers a vast treatment menu as well as bespoke treatments and a private garden; a business centre caters to all workers’ needs; and there are several dining options, including Social by Heinz Beck (a three-star Michelin chef) dishing up innovative “fine-casual dining”. Coco's Kids Club will keep the littlies interested and those wanting to work out might hit the gym or jog along The Palm's well-shaded, purpose-built internal running track that stretches the length of the Golden Mile.
Holding the record for the world's largest group of man-made islands, The Palm Jumeirah (named for its long “trunk” and surrounding “fronds”) is host to some of Dubai's most exclusive real estate as well as multiple five-star hotels, world-class restaurants and luxury spas. A monorail line runs down the centre of the island, known as the Golden Mile, with the fronds easily accessible by taxi or hire car.
