An Exclusive Island Enclave For All Generations
Located on the furthest tip of The Palm’s West Crescent, One&Only The Palm gives guests the chance to escape the bustling city and enter an exclusive island enclave. Complete with its own private marina and accessible by boat or via a winding driveway, this elegant retreat might be minutes from the heart of Dubai, but it feels like a million miles away.
Comprising just 90 guest rooms and suites and four opulent beachfront villas, One&Only The Palm is incredibly private and cleverly designed so there are spaces and privacy for both couples and large families. Boasting 450 metres of private beach, 850m2 swimming pool and private marina accessed by boat, it offers discerning families the perfect base to delight in the magic of the desert and endless allure of the sea. The Guerlain Spa offers parents a unique chance to experience the secrets of one of the oldest skincare houses in the world.
KidsOnly, One&Only The Palm’s complimentary programme for children aged 4-11, is a parent-free zone in the Manor House with an exciting roster of engaging activities. Packed full of entertainment for even the hardest to please little ones, the KidsOnly club includes a TV and movie room with oversized cushions, games area, mini library of children’s classics and a dedicated art and crafts corner. For more interactive downtime, daily-supervised programmes are adapted to specific age groups. Aimed to stimulate mind, body and smiles – activities include everything from authentic henna painting and belly dancing, alfresco camping under the stars and even basic Arabic lessons for local teachers. Fully qualified babysitters are also available to book 24 hours a day.
For sport lovers, expert instructors are on hand to help kids learn a new skill. Activities include leading little ones through their first swimming lessons, coaching tennis mini pros-in-training at the two fully sized courts or an afternoon of water skiing on the waves of the Arabian Gulf. Group sessions are available for families looking for energetic activities to discover together.
There is all-day dining for every age at ZEST, One&Only The Palm’s casual restaurant artfully blending flavours from the Middle East, Asia and the West. Ideally suited to both grown up and ingénue palates, the extensive offering includes a full menu of child-friendly dishes and light bites. The conservatory-style interior with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the iconic main pool and alfresco terrace framed by lush gardens is perfect for long lunches with loved ones or early dinners before little ones get to bedtime.
Located across the Manor House and six low-rise Mansions set in lush Moorish gardens, the 66 stylish guest rooms and 24 lavish suites offer accommodation options for families of all sizes. Ideal for bringing together loved ones, the one-bedroom Manor Grand Palm Suite commands 250m2 on the top floor, with an impressive suite terrace, open plan living and large dining table ideal for in-suite feasts arranged by a team of around-the-clock butlers. For larger parties, The Manor Grand Palm Suite is able to inter-connect with a Palm Manor Premiere Room to create a two-bedroom option.
Families looking for total seclusion and plenty of space for the whole brood can book into one of four Two-Bedroom Beachfront Villas with hidden entrances nestled between the leaves of the resort’s lush gardens. Ideal for multi-generational groups, spread across two immaculate levels, each palatial Villa offers a large foyer leading to the open-plan living space with an expansive dining area and serviced kitchen. Bright and airy with an abundance of space, families will feel right at home with outdoor dining for impromptu dinners, private plunge pools overlooking the water and direct access to One&Only The Palm’s private beach.
