AS 2022 ENTERS ITS FINAL MONTHS and the coldest part of the year appears on the horizon, it’s natural to begin to pine for the warmth of summer and start thinking about your next vacation. But enough thinking — now is the perfect time to take a trip with the family and end the year with a bang!
An ideal destination for those on a quest for winter sun — and at any other time of year for that matter — is the Middle Eastern metropolis of Dubai. And if you’re hitting Dubai, you can’t do much better than checking into Sofitel Dubai The Palm.
Perched on the East Crescent of Palm Jumeirah, the iconic string of artificial islands in the Persian Gulf, the fabulously luxe property has found many ways to stand out. Guests rave about its high-end, elegant, and indulgent experiences and it is easy to see why.
Set on a magnificent estate dotted with palm trees and plant-lined walkways lapped gently by the waves of the Arabian Gulf, Sofitel Dubai The Palm offers guests a choice of 546 rooms.
These include four private beach villas, 182 luxury serviced apartments, and 360 Polynesian-themed rooms and suites. These incredible spaces come with expansive balconies and dramatic views of the ocean and Palm Jumeirah.
The rooms invoke the same Polynesia vibes as the rest of the property. Completed by sleek and chic dark-wood fittings and furniture, each offering is set off by artful brushes of color in the designer furnishings and tasteful lighting. The rooms feature all the little extras we love, such as the Bose Wave audio system and travertine tiled bathrooms stocked with L’Occitane products to elevate your bathing time.
The pièce de résistance, however, is the balconies. Each is fully furnished and boasts dramatic panoramas of the ocean. Guests will love spending quality time with friends and family in these comfortable and oh-so-cool social areas. But if you want to take your indulgence that little bit further, book a villa which, with their roof terraces and private pools — are a splurge you won’t regret.
Live the French way
Once settled in, guests will instantly find themselves at home in the sun-drenched tropical escape, where they can top up their tan next to a convivial selection of six swimming pools or take it beachside to the hotel’s sprawling 1,640-square foot private beach.
A special treat is in store for guests who enter the Sofitel SPA with L’Occitane. Along with its choice of exploring six indoor and outdoor swimming pools, indoor hydrotherapy pools, saunas, and even a Turkish Bath, the spa offers a comprehensive range of treatments and massages. An ideal pampering spot to rejuvenate and relax after working up a sweat in the gym or exchanging volleys on the resort’s tennis courts.
When it comes to dining, you are in very good hands at Sofitel Dubai The Palm. Famous for the spirit of Gallic culture that runs through all its properties, Sofitel’s commitment to bringing the best of French hospitality to the world means guests can choose from 11 restaurants, bars, and lounges. The outlets offer tantalizing menus representing cuisines from Asia, Europe, the Americas, and, naturally, the local Gulf region, set against stunning sand beach backdrops.
