The One & Only Royal Mirage 'Arabian Court' resembles a small palace straight out of A Thousand and One Nights and enjoys a pleasant setting at the heart of a vast and beautiful oasis, right on the seafront. You can't fail to be impressed by its superb stylish decor, influenced by Arabic design - every little detail is there to be admired. Add to this the gorgeous beach, the delicious cuisine, and the wide range of activities on offer, and you have the perfect all-round destination.

    Location 8.75 /10

    Located on Jumeirah beach, 15 mi from the city centre and 18 mi from the airport, Allow about 30 minutes for transfers to the city and as much time to get to the airport!

    Accommodation 8.95 /10

    The 160 immaculate guest rooms, the smallest of which have a floor area of 50m², all are oriented towards the sea. Having said that, the heavy vegetation sometimes blocks the view of the sea in some of the rooms, all of which have balconies. All of the rooms are furnished with a very comfortable king size bed and a particularly high headboard, together with a small dressing table with a dark yellow floral-patterned carpet and indirect lighting: this makes for a very warm and welcoming ambience that is identical to what you will find in the suites. The very comprehensive amenities include individual air conditioning, a free safe, a regularly replenished mini bar, a very large flat screen satellite television, an Internet connection, and a direct international telephone line, whilst the suites come with the added luxuries of an iPod docking station and a fax machine.
    Embellished with black and yellow marble and stone embossed motifs, the large and impeccable bathrooms provide everything you are likely to need: marble-set bathtub, wash basin set on a wooden unit, tropical shower, hair dryer, bathrobes, scales, towels folded away in little recesses, and a very nice selection of hospitality products. The toilet is separate from the bathroom. Room service is available 24 hours a day.

    Overview 9.20 /10

    The Arabian Court opened in 2004 and consists of a 5 storey building facing the sea. As is the case in the rest of the hotel, cream is the dominant colour in both the cosy reception and the long corridor, which leads through to the soft and sophisticated setting of the reception area. The large bay windows allow plenty of light in and look out onto an enclosed courtyard adorned with a series of small ponds and very stylish earthernware jars, whilst in the beautiful gallery, the 7 rosettes on the floor under the 7 cupolas represent each of the Emirates. The various artificial wooden arches dotted around the property are also a nice touch. A large courtyard, larger than the one at the Palace, has been fitted with gazebos beneath which you can relax in one of the comfortable armchairs and even smoke a shisha pipe should the mood take you.
    With 4 bars to choose from in the hotel, you can either sit inside beneath a large dome, or outside on the rooftop lounge, which gets very busy on the weekend, as it is extremely popular among the gilded youth of Dubai. Laid out all around the dome you will find comfortable sofas and chairs, wonderful mosaic arabesques, and majili seats, which make for a comfortable setting, complete with softened orange lighting. The hotel has a children's club of its own (for 3 to 12 year olds), open from 10:00am to 12:00pm and from 2:00pm to 4:00pm. The huge lagoon pool outside is surrounded by palm trees that are scattered about here and there and illuminated by spotlights at night. The hotel's gardens are punctuated with beautiful lawned areas, small pathways, waterways, palm trees, and various other tree species. The beach is just nearby.

    Food and drink 9.45 /10

    Of the various restaurants to choose from, there is just one buffet restaurant, as is the case in the other Royal Mirage properties. The main restaurant La Rôtisserie, is open from 6:30am to 10:30am, from 12:00pm to 3:30pm, and from 7:30pm to 11:30pm, like the Palace. It provides rustic surroundings, complete with copper pans adorning the walls, reminiscent of a beautiful traditional old kitchen, where the team of chefs go brilliantly about their work. The superb decor here is spot on, as are the very generous yet carefully prepared buffets, consisting of around 30 largely European main courses and 25 desserts.
    In a very stylish and welcoming ambiance, decorated in dark wood and red and orange tones, the Indo-European restaurant, Nina, serves Indian, Thai, and Filipino specialties, among others. They are all served together on the table so that everyone can share the dishes ordered. Located between the beach and the gardens, the Eauzone serves a variety of Asian dishes, this time in an outstanding setting in the middle of the illuminated swimming pool. This restaurant also has a bar area with a magnificent turquoise counter, where light dishes are served throughout the day.

    Beach 9.20 /10

    Opposite the Palm Jumeirah, the very beautiful beach bordered with a lawn, stretches for over half a mile, with its fine white sand cleaned on a daily basis. You can enjoy spectacular views of the Burj Al Arab from here, while relaxing on a thick red-cushioned iron deckchair in the shade of a parasol, or even a palm tree. The canvas parasols are set up in pairs around little tables, guaranteeing privacy. The services provided in the hotel extend to the beach. The clear turquoise water is just perfect - lovely and warm and really calm, though a little too shallow for swimming. You will need to go out a fair distance before it is deep enough to swim in. However, the gentle slope is very convenient for children. A wide variety of water sports, including sailing, windsurfing, water-skiing and deep-sea fishing, are also available for an extra fee.

    To know

    'The Palace' was the first hotel to be built as part of the superb One & Only Royal Mirage resort, which now includes another two - the Arabian Court and the Residence. Guests are welcome to move freely from one hotel to another via the gardens or the beach, which is shared by all 3 hotels, although each has its own specific area. Guests staying in the complex also share other facilities, such as the water sports club, the spa, and the sports grounds. The Royal Mirage is actually a resort in itself, providing a wide variety of leisure activities. As a member of the One & Only luxury hotel group, it also offers guests a luxurious setting and high quality service, with each hotel enjoying its own pools, relaxation areas, bars, and restaurants. The latter are open to local residents in Dubai as well as guests staying at the hotel. A cocktail is offered to every hotel guest on Tuesday evenings.

      With a contemporary, luxurious and a bit uncluttered style, it has an original location at the entrance of the commercial district, which also houses the skiing center of the Middle East, Ski Dubai. This hotel is more convenient for a shopping and discovering the city than it is for enjoying the seaside. Families should know: everybody will appreciate down-hill sledding or snow ringo, two activities offered at Ski Dubai.

      A member of the 'Leading Hotels of the World', the One & Only Royal Mirage 'Residence' is a boutique hotel located at the heart of a vast and beautiful geometric oasis, perfectly suited to couples in search of peaceful surroundings, privacy and sophisticated luxury and ideal for honeymooners, though probably not the best place to stay if you are holidaying as a family.

      • Location -

      Al Madinat by the luxury hotel chain, Jumeirah, which also opened the renowned Burj al Arab, is without a doubt one of the best resorts in Dubai. Set on a man-made lake, guests can get around by abra (small traditional wooden boat) which makes a change from Dubai's busy roads. Al Madinat is a village in its own right; guests won't want to leave! With beautifully decorated rooms, a pleasant outdoor pool, gardens to get lost in, a huge spa, over 45 food and beverage outlets and one of the best beaches in the city, the resort is definitely in our top three. Although some may find the décor a little gaudy, especially upon arrival, the resort is a quality one and definitely worth the extra spend. The atmosphere is relaxed and Al Madinat offers something for everyone, from a fun kids' club to a beautiful spa. Al Madinat, meaning 'city' in Arabic, offers a good balance between intimacy and social events making the resort ideal for couples as well as families and groups of friends. Even the likes of George Clooney and Sharon Stone have graced the resort with their presence!

      • Location -

      An impeccable haven of peace and tranquillity. Part of the One and Only Royal Mirage complex of three hotels, the Arabian Court is the more intimate and grown up of the three. It also has more of an authentic Arabian style. The Residence and Spa is smaller and more old fashioned and The Palace has more of a family atmosphere. Arabian Courtyard guests can however use facilities at The Residence and The Palace. Stepping into the hotel is like crossing over into a whole other world filled with jewels, incense and rose petals. The corridors here are silent, the breeze can be heard circulating through open patios lined by immaculate lawns and flowers beds leading all the way to the sea front. For a hideaway, a break away from it all, this is the perfect place to come to if you don't want to be far from the action. The Arabian Court is perfect for couples looking to spend some quality time together, and although the hotel does sell itself as having a 'family focus', we wouldn't recommend the Arabian Court for children due to its serene atmosphere.

      Although the Radisson Blu, Media City Hotel is not located at the heart of Dubai activity, the area is extremely pleasant, relaxing, and it is only a short drive away from Jumeirah beach life. Due to its stylish décor and friendly staff, this hotel is on our favourites list! The facilities are numerous and varied, including the two sun terraces with a pool each and the stylish bars on offer. The rooms are very cosy, bright and cheerful, setting the décor apart from the rest - the bright stripy carpets make a change from the usual neutral earthy tones so often found in Dubai hotel rooms. Fresh and modern, the Radisson Blu Media City Hotel is ideal for a range of clientele, from business to families, to groups of friends to couples all looking for a quiet base to explore the busier parts of Dubai from.

      • Location -

      Arjaan Rotana Hotel, an apartment hotel, is the tall pink tower with an arabesque arch on the top opposite the One and Only Royal Mirage complex between the Dubai Marina and Jumeirah areas. The hotel is very simple, quiet and basic if not old fashioned with garish-looking furniture in the rooms. The restaurant on the ground floor however, is a pleasant area to spend time in. The highlight of the hotel is its roof-top pool, which is rarely crowded and therefore makes for a relaxing area to sunbathe. Otherwise, a shuttle takes guests to the beach just across the road. The clientele is mainly from the Middle East, so the hotel is therefore a ?dry' hotel, meaning that it does not serve alcohol. The nice thing about the hotel is that its owner has tried to maintain a Moorish architecture which can be assimilated to Islamic culture; guests are therefore reminded of their destination as opposed to staying at a formatted hotel that could be absolutely anywhere in the world. The hotel is ideal for families as it comprises suites with kitchenettes and the rooms are generally spacious.

      The lifestyle Armani Hotel Dubai is nothing short of stunning. With every angle and curve that has been carefully studied to give the desired effect, the hotel is without doubt one of the best in the city, which is a huge statement to make, especially in Dubai, where the standard of hotels is generally very high. Mr Armani has overseen every single detail of this hotel, from the scents used throughout the hotel, to the embossed chocolates sold in the deli on the ground floor. The result is astonishing. What separates the hotel from the rest is firstly, its location, right inside the Burj Khalifa, and second, the sense of space of the hotel. Slick, sophisticated and contemporary, the hotel is a veritable success. The only downfall is that you could be anywhere in the world as there is no reminder of the destination's culture and traditions. The hotel is best-suited to couples and friends looking for the crème de la crème in luxury.

Exclusive, The H is quietly and self-satisfyingly elegant without being pretentious. Unlike the brash hotels where the quality doesn't always match expectations, The H is all about quality and sophistication, and although on the pricy side, is definitely worth saving that extra bit to stay here. Not only is the atmosphere relaxed, but the staff is friendly and efficient, and no expense has been spared to make the rooms beautiful, spacious, stylish and up to date technology-wise. Throw in a fantastic range of high quality restaurants and bars, and a good location, you have your perfect hotel! Ideal for all types of guests, whether for leisure or business, the luxurious high quality H Hotel is ideal for friend, families and couples alike. Walking into The H can be likened to the feeling of slipping into a hot steaming bath...

      The Burj Al Arab appears on the horizon, rises out of the fog along the coastline in Jumeirah, visible from skyscraper terraces all over the city, like a myth seen in books. A real gem in its architecture, seeing the legendary hotel, the only seven star hotel in the world, is like seeing the Taj Mahal in India. It is a real architectural feat that should not be dismissed for being too showy, too brash, too contemporary, but rather revered as a symbol of this city that is no less than over the top! The hotel sits quietly glimmering in the sun along a long and wide sandy beach. The interior takes a while to grow on you, but the services and facilities are irreproachable. It's definitely worth a stay at least for a night, or if it is too pricy for your budget then do drop by for tea, but book early.

The fine design, bay windows, lighting effects and grand furniture combine to make this an ulra-stylish hotel that has successfully lured some of the world's best chefs to prepare its cuisine, including the Frenchman Pierre Gagnaire. The somewhat outstanding rooms also deserve a special mention.

Far from the madding crowds, this exclusive hotel is located on the dge of Dubai not too far from the airport but in an area that feels isolated away from the hustle and bustle of the city. A real haven of peace and quiet with a smart lodge atmopshere, this hotel is ideal to get away from it all. With sparkling facilities and spacious luxurious rooms, the Desert Palm specialises in equestrian activities and even has its own stables and polo club, including three hundred horses and four polo fields. Contemporary and arty, the hotel's interiors have been closely studied to give it the sharpest aesthetic aspect possible, whilst remaining extremely simple in using natural materials and fabrics throughout.

      This is the second Atlantis hotel in the world. Is Atlantis The Palm, the flagship resort on Dubai's first Palm Island, a gem of a hotel or a monster of excess? Actually, it's both of them! It is perhaps the hotel that best represents Dubai, built as it is from scratch between the sea and the desert. A symbol of grandiose delusions, it is nothing less than a 'kingdom of superlatives'. Next to this immense and (in places) kitsch resort with its multitude of ultramodern facilities and restaurants staffed by award-winning chefs, hotel residents and day-trippers alike can enjoy a huge aquatic park. It is like a city within a city, making it ideal for families, but if you are looking for charm and intimacy, you're probably better off elsewhere!
