Why it’s not just the Ultra All-Inclusive offering at Rixos The Palm Dubai Hotel & Suites that makes it Dubai’s best family hotel
Whereas other all-inclusive properties can be restrictive in their offering, Rixos The Palm Dubai Hotel & Suites is the polar opposite. This policy extends to the accommodation, with five categories of rooms (with garden or soothing sea views to boot) and ten types of suites. Size matters here, with Two- and Three-Bedroom Family Suites delivering a huge amount of space and separate living areas. But if they’re huge, the likes of the Four- and Five-Bedroom Suites with Private Pool are gargantuan. As is the outstandingly opulent Executive Grand King Suite Penthouse – all 3 bedrooms and Jacuzzi-clad terrace of it – which you’ll access via a private lift.
Rarely will you read the words ‘quality food’ in a review of an all-inclusive property, but Rixos The Palm Dubai Hotel & Suites is true to its word when it boasts of doing things differently (read ‘better’) with its Ultra All-Inclusive offering. Here, the food is both varied and excellent – as are the drink menus. A great level of detail has clearly been applied to the impressive open buffet offering at A La Turca to ensure it appeals to myriad tastes and diets. But be sure to book for an à la carte dinner at both Toro Loco Steakhouse (choice cuts from Japan through to Argentina) and Aqua & More(sublime seafood charcoal-grilled to perfection). You’ll view the term ‘all-inclusive’ in a whole new light.
With sweet treats on tap, kids will fall head over hills for Rixos The Palm Dubai Hotel & Suites, yet Rixy Kids’ Club – where activities abound – will steal their hearts and attention. It lays on everything from magic shows and cooking classes by day, to the Rixinema and Rixy Disco at night. For that reason it’s equally beloved of parents, who can fully enjoy the line-up of late night entertainments in the resort. Fitness enthusiasts can take their pick from an array of scheduled complimentary classes (aqua spinning through to TRX and yoga), and there’s also the excellent Anjana Spa, renowned for its Turkish Hamman, which, as you’d expect from a Turkish brand, is fully authentic.
