Just a few sandy steps from one of Dubai’s best beaches, this hotel offers beautifully landscaped gardens, three pools, open-plan rooms and incredible places to dine.
1. You’re guaranteed to fall asleep to the sound of the waves
"Al Naseem" means Sea Breeze in Arabic – so it’s perfectly apt that all rooms and suites face the Arabian Sea.
2. There’s a golden pot for every room
430 golden pots hang at the entrance to The Palmery representing one for every room in the hotel. Now that’s attention to detail.
3. It’s the playground for the artist in residence
Emirati artist Mattar Bin Lahej was commissioned to create four statement art pieces in the hotel. He was inspired by his childhood, because it was on the site of the hotel where he used to play football as a boy.
4. It’s got the Royal stamp of approval
Behind the front desk is a poem written in Arabic calligraphy. The author is the Ruler of Dubai and Vice President of the UAE, H.H Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
5. You’ll travel in artistic style
The fleet of golf buggies that ferry guest around the resort and neighbouring sister hotels are decorated with lavish patterns created by Emirati artists, in collaboration with Dubai Culture.
6. Sample cuisines from around the world
There are seven F&B outlets to choose from. Don’t miss the new Japanese fusion pop-up concept at Summersalt, created at the hands of new Japanese/Argentinian Chef Cristian Goya. And for incredible views of the Burj Al Arab, head to Rockfish, the Mediterranean seafood restaurant which recently revealed an entire new menu created by the hotel’s new Executive chef, Chef Marco Garfagnini.
7. You’ll sleep like a king (or queen)
The super-soft mattresses are Hypnos – the official supplier to England’s Buckingham Palace.
8. It’s a horticultural explosion
Palm trees are synonymous with Arabia, but did you know there are 14 different species of palm tree dotted across the gardens and courtyards.
9. You’ll be contributing to the rehabilitation of turtles
The hotel is home to a purpose-built lagoon, specially built to nurture and rehabilitate injured turtles recused off the Arabian coast before releasing them back into the sea.
10. Check into the Royal Suite if you don’t want to leave
The 500sq m Royal Suite comes with two bathrooms, two bedrooms, a gym, a kitchenette and its very own cinema.
