Oasis Of Palm / Hg2 MUST-VISIT

Bling is usually the thing in Dubai, and while it’s not to be knocked (the city has, after all, built a zillion-pound tourism industry on it) it’s nice to see that the Emirate state can do understated, too. Enter The Palm, a subtle but sexy new stay opened this month by none other than One & Only Resorts. Comprising just 64 rooms, 26 suites and four villas, the relaxed beach resort is boutique in size and offers an island feel just a stone’s throw away from the hustle and bustle of downtown; a 450-metre private beach add to its privacy, while a private marina mean superstars will flock here in their designer-clad droves. As you’d expect of a hotel of this calibre, three on-site restaurants cater to discerning foodies; Zest offers Michelin-starred dining by acclaimed chef Yannick Alleno, IOI provides chic dining and a Champagne bar beside the sea, and the Lounge serves up light bites and 24-hour room service. And with everything decked out with chic contemporary furnishings (no Swarovski crystals or gaudy gold in sight), The Palm is one of Dubai’s hottest new places to hanker down for a night (or fourteen).
