    Our opinion

    One&Only Royal Mirage pays homage to age-old Arab hospitality and offers stylish luxury for adults and children alike.

    Hotel description

    The One&Only Royal Mirage offers luxury and opulence in an atmosphere of informal and relaxed sophistication. Built on an impressively regal scale to mirror a traditional Arabian palace, the yellow domes and intricate arches create a magnificent first impression. This style and elegance is sustained inside with lavishly decorated public spaces that are a testament to the rich traditions and history of the region. The resort has eight restaurants, including all-day dining in Olives, which serves Mediterranean dishes and has a lovely outdoor terrace for enjoying the stunning environment. Guestrooms and suites at the One&Only Royal Mirage have been beautifully furnished, decorated in a colour scheme of blues and yellows that reflect the resort’s surrounding area of the Gulf and desert. Ornamental touches bring an Arabian flavour into the rooms, whilst sea-facing views, observed from individual balconies, take advantage of the location’s outstanding beauty. Deluxe Rooms sleep up to two adults and one child under sixteen, and interconnecting rooms are available with no age restrictions. Consisting of three hotels, One&Only Royal Mirage offers an unbeatable range of facilities, including three tennis courts, water sports on a thousand-metre stretch of private beach, and the ESpa Spa. The comprehensive selection of water sports includes snorkelling, scuba diving and deep-sea fishing and these facilities allow guests to take advantage of Dubai’s excellent marine life. Meanwhile, children aged from two to eleven can enjoy the KidsOnly club, which is located in a specially built fortress; here, activities include football and arts and crafts. The One&Only Royal Mirage is a distinctive and sophisticated resort that will charm both children and adults alike.
