If two diametrically opposite worlds come together into one, the result could be very similar to what we see and enjoy in Dubai, a paradise in the desert emerges to join the skyscrapers of one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the globe. And here in the beautiful shores of the Persian Gulf, stands a wonderful place that for many will be a mirage in the desert: the One & Only Royal Mirage. Its arches, domes and towers surrounded by green spaces and colorful gardens, this amazing hotel of One & Only Group is divided into three distinct areas designed to delight guests with three types of accommodation.
First of all, The Palace. It is an imposing royal domain facing the beach where we find the 231 rooms and suites that make up the core of the hotel (147 superior Deluxe Rooms, 22 superior Executive Suites, 11 superior Gold Club Suites, 49 superior Club Rooms and 2 superior Royal Gold Suites); a variety of sports are also offered, such as temperature controlled pools, water sports center, tennis courts, golf courses and a children’s play center called KidsOnly. We must also mention the four restaurants, the Royal Ballroom and the three meeting rooms.
Each one of the rooms and suites at The Palace area are sea-facing and have a balcony or terrace and are tastefully decorated with ornamental arches and custom made furniture, inspired by the traditions of the area. The influence of these traditions is also evident in the imposing Palace Grand Pool, a majestic newly remodeled pool in the sand that contrasts with the beautiful turquoise crackle glass tiles, mosaics and inlaid crystal clear water surrounded by palm trees.
Furthermore, the Arabian Court, located in the heart of the resort recreates a majestic space in which the oriental spirit is more evident than in any other part of the One & Only Royal Mirage. Its 160 charming rooms and 10 suites stand out amidst an architecture that is notable for its symmetry and are oriented to Palm Island Bay, so you can admire it from the private balconies or terraces.
And third and finally, the most exclusive area of the One & Only Royal Mirage is The Residence & Spa, that is connected to The Palace through the Arabian Court and designed as an intimate sanctuary in which problems and stress do not seem to worry any visitor.
