It is a full-service resort and the third Taj property in Dubai after those in Business Bay and Jumeirah Lake Towers. The Taj Palm may be proud of being one of the few other Exotica brands in the world.
What’s it like:
Here, you’ll experience the supreme luxury of Taj. Infinity loop glass sculpture and a detailed Design Diamond Flow Chandelier by Precious are both present in the lobby’s centre. There is a calming jasmine and rose scent throughout the property. The kind, well-trained personnel that greets us in the foyer makes sure that everything about check-in is discrete and hassle-free. In a city with many other upscale hotels, the degree of professionalism among the personnel here still shines out.
Where it is?
Due to its location on the Palm, you must drive through the Atlantis, Sofitel, Waldorf Astoria, and An Antara in order to reach it. It is practically at the very end of the East Crescent. Despite the intense competition, there was a steady stream of travelers checking in at the resort when we visited it, which was just a few weeks old.
A total of 325 keys are available at the six-story resort, comprising 258 rooms and 67 suites, all of which have balconies. The lavish Two Bedroom Luxury Suite Sea View, which had a living area, two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a walk-in closet, and a guest powder room, was where we stayed. The two bedrooms have king beds in each, and they are quite well-equipped with enormous work tables and TVs that can be turned to face you from any seat. The living room and each bedroom each have a connected balcony. By the time we arrived back at the hotel in the evening, the rooms were prepared with the curtains drawn and the lights dimmed.
Food and drink:
The hotel offers seven different places to eat and drink. We went to the gastropub Roaring Rabbit for lunch; be sure to sample the shepherd’s pie and the butter garlic prawns. We went to the upscale restaurant Varq for supper. The delicious Varqi crab with tandoori shrimp, crispy filo, and 24-carat gold leaf is a must-try. After dinner, go to the Raia Rooftop Bar and Lounge for a commanding view of the downtown skyline and the rest of the Palm. Every morning, a breakfast buffet is offered in the Palm Kitchen.
There are eight conference spaces with a capacity of 12 to 40 persons apiece. Two sizable ballrooms, one of which can hold 500 guests and the other 220, are located on the ground level. Also available are smaller private conference spaces in the Taj Club Lounge. Importantly, every workstation in the lounge has a programmer that instantly deletes your browser history, login information, and password when you log off.
One of the longest pools on the Palm, according to Taj, is located on the property and is 70 meters long. Additionally, visitors have access to a 230-meter length of private beachfront. While a gaming area with a pool table and console station provides amusement for teens, a kids’ club called Popsicle is open all day. The Jiva spa, which includes nine treatment rooms and a number of soothing spa alternatives, is located meters from the Technogym-equipped gym.
The Taj Palm Dubai truly offers the opulent experience you would anticipate from an Exotica hotel. Its food alternatives, hospitality standards overall, and service standards are at the top of the industry. Really worthwhile to see.
The water, the stars, and the sunsets all served as inspiration. You can’t help but notice the eye-catching distinctive design chandelier as you enter because it was created by renowned lighting manufacturer Precious and has more than 11,000 crystals in it. This is the result of more than 3,000 hours of skilled traditional workmanship, and it truly establishes the resort’s overall design aesthetic.
