    Our opinion

    The One and Only Royal Mirage is a testament to the rich traditions and history of the region.

    Hotel description

    Paying homage to age-old Arab hospitality and architecture, One&Only Royal Mirage offers luxury and opulence in an atmosphere of informal and relaxed sophistication. Built on an impressively regal scale, the sprawling hotel is reminiscent of a traditional Arabian palace, with yellow domes and intricate arches. Beautifully landscaped grounds extend towards the seafront, with date palm tree-lined avenues and free-form swimming pools embedded amongst the courtyards. Consisting of three hotels - The Palace, the Arabian Court and the Residence and Spa - One&Only Mirage offers an outstanding range of facilities, including three tennis courts, 400 metres of private beach and ESpa. To make the most of Dubai’s excellent marine life, guests can pursue a comprehensive selection of water sports, including snorkelling, scuba diving and deep-sea fishing. The resort’s eight restaurants include the Dining Room, which is exclusive for guests at the Residence, whilst Celebrities offers French cuisine. A sense of exoticism and luxury is sustained in the lavishly decorated public spaces. Guestrooms and suites are beautifully furnished with a colour scheme of blues and yellows that reproduce the colours of the hotel’s natural surroundings of sea and desert. Ornamental touches highlight a taste of Arabian flavour, whilst the rooms maximise excellent sea views. Perfect for a distinctive and sophisticated beach holiday.
