For a staycation that feels like a holiday, escape to this Polynesian paradise this summer
Sofitel Dubai The Palm is the ideal getaway for UAE-dwellers seeking a break from reality this summer. Located on the East Crescent of the world-famous Palm Jumeirah, making it a spot for purely sand, sea and sun views. The five-star resort infuses luxury into designs inspired by the rich culture of the South Pacific, making for a staycation to remember. From the food to activities, read on for more reasons to book your next staycation here.
The rooms and suites
With a dozen options for where to rest easy at night – including multi-room apartments and opulent villas – the choice here is exhaustive. Let us take the strain by recommending the fabulous Prestige Suite. Comfortably large enough for a family of four, it bestows perfect Palm views from its sun-kissed balcony and enormous bathrooms, replete with decadent circular bathtubs.
Just like the rooms, choices abound when it comes to dining here. The World Eatery, as its name suggests, does myriad dishes exceptionally well; Maui offers up the best power bowls in the city; while choice cuts sourced from across the globe are always grilled to perfection at Porterhouse Steaks & Grills. Round off dinner here with a flambéed-at-your-table baked Alaska
A veritable paradise for kids, who will love to make a splash at the Palm’s first floating bounce park and scream for joy as they hurtle down slides in their own dedicated pool, it’s also somewhere grown-ups will adore. There’s a superb swathe of beach and an exceptional spa, where treatments – such as the Polynesian Taurumi massage – deliver that instant holiday feeling.
