LIKE SOMETHING FROM ALADDIN, THIS OPULENT PALACE HOTEL, LOCATED ON
a secluded frond of Dubai’s iconic Palm, was definitely designed with princesses in mind. Boasting a wide swathe of private golden beach, an award-winning spa and enough marble and mosaic to pave a small empire, it’s no wonder it’s a draw for celebrities and royalty. Trendy minimalism has been shunned in favour of plush fabrics and ornamental extravagance, really, this is every inch the Arabian fantasy. Big, bold and beautiful, with 443 rooms, we love the sheer scale and fabulousness of it. INSIDER TIP: Dubai’s famous marina is just 20 minutes away by boat.
BOOK IT: 5 nights including breakfast from £1,900 per person.
