    A phenomenal location, views, service, and selection of facilities.

    Hotel description

    Taking pride of place along the ‘trunk’ of Dubai’s iconic Palm Tree Jumeirah, Fairmont the Palm occupies a slender section of manmade beach surrounded by the Arabian Gulf. This is a family-friendly beachfront hotel with plenty of pomp and ceremony, a dazzling example of east-meets-west contemporary Arabic design. From the outset, the hotel’s splendour speaks of the city’s reputation for excess – and it is easy to get caught up in that mind-set during your stay here. Spread across three oversized structures that line the beach, the ostentatious architecture hides a wealth of facilities to occupy adults and children alike. While away your days on cabana-style daybeds on the beach, where parents are tended to by beach butlers, allowing the young at heart to frolic in the waters or partake in an array of water sports. Four swimming pools adorn this beachfront plot: the North and South pools feature dramatic waterfall features, while a family pool and adults-only pool take centre stage. The latter is served by a pool bar. Parents may seek the serenity of the Health Club or Willow Stream Spa with its hammams, experience showers and ice fountain, while the kids find alternative occupation. Namely, the Fairmont Falcons Juniors’ Club offers a fun and educational service for children aged 18 months to 15 years, with an activity centre and a chill out zone available for older kids. Babysitting is also available. Dining venues at Fairmont the Palm are endless, with international flavours ranging from Brazilian to regional Chinese menus. A number of bars are available for carefree adults, including shisha at Mashrabiya Lounge and Arabian tapas and cocktails at Ba Lounge. The Cigar Room is another option for the adventurous. At the end of a long day in cosmopolitan Dubai, return to your room or suite for moonlit relaxation on your balcony. Fairmont Grand Family Rooms are very accommodating for families but a good range of interconnecting rooms are also available for those looking for a bit of distance from the kids. Striking guestroom views are of the Arabian Gulf, the skyline of Dubai Marina or the Palm itself so you really feel in the thick of it.
