OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

The resort sits between the Anantara and Rixos hotels on the eastern crescent of The Palm. There's not a great deal close by, although there are numerous restaurants and shops on The Palm and a large private beach ensures you rarely need to venture far.

By plane: flights from London and Manchester to Dubai take 7 hours. The hotel is one hour's drive from the airport. Free private parking on-site. Book flights to Dubai.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

Being a newly-built, spacious, light resort, the ambience is always upbeat here. The large lobby, which extends into a bar/lounge area, features a striking 11,000-piece chandelier, 'Diamond Flow', which resembles giant fishbones but represents the movement of the waves. The theme of the resort was inspired by the light undersea, and therefore there are lots of shades of the blue and green present, including a couple of 'living walls'. Sea motifs are everywhere, for example a panel of blue pebbles in the lifts.

THE FACILITIES

Service is exemplary here, as you would expect from the Taj Hotels brand. With seven restaurant/bar areas, a huge pool, luxurious spa, 24-hour gym, multi-court and tennis court, a kids' club, a teens' games room and a large private beach, there's a good range of facilities.
