If I had to describe it in one word it would be opulence. With the option of using more words, I would sprinkle in a few like...plush, first class, and heavenly. The hotel manages to make you think you are perpetually in a luxurious spa. The smell of jasmine greets you at the door. The staff pampers you constantly...from frozen watermelon to cool, refreshing faceloths poolside. Breakfast is fabulous and we thoroughly enjoyed dinner at all of the restaurants. The concierge coordinated great trips for us, but most of the highly desired destinations in Dubai are right outside your door and visible from your balcony. The General Manager of the hotel greeted us and made sure every aspect of our visit exceeded our expectations.
We saw several other properties in Dubai during our visit, but this was my far the best! It manages to be extremely contemporary yet give you the feel of being in the Middle East.
It is stated that Dubai only has two 7 star hotels...the Palace (with 5 stars) has been cheated.
