With a name that commands attention, The Palace Downtown Dubai is one of Dubai’s leading luxury hotels, and a World of Wanderlust favourite from the European Luxury Tour.
The Palace Downtown is ideally located next door to Dubai’s most famous shopping mall – The Dubai Mall. It is therefore positioned in the heart of modern day Dubai, and will provide the perfect luxury hotel experience for discerning travelers visiting the bustling cultural hub of the Middle East. The hotel is also located right on the Dubai lake, where you can enjoy the Dubai fountains at night from our favourite Thai restaurant, Thiptara. Yet there is much more to the story of The Palace Downtown Dubai than an unrivaled location, as it also presents itself as one of the most aware luxury properties, endlessly exceeding guest expectations with ease. At the moment of entering the hotel guests are welcomed by a handful of staff in the lobby, ensuring each guest is made to feel like royalty in what is nothing short of a Palace in terms of design, service, and opulence.
The luxurious property offers guests an outdoor swimming pool, health club, spa facilities, a full-service spa, and ample bars and international restaurants to enjoy. The hotel is comprised of 242 guest rooms, including 81 suites with private balconies overlooking the Dubai Lake. The entire property is a tribute to authentic Arabian luxury, with an appreciation for international guests evident in all aspects of the hotel. The international restaurants are warmly welcomed, as there is ample to choose from – though WOW recommends you don’t go past Thiptara Thai restaurant for an intimate evening on the Dubai Lake.
Rooms are equipped with all the necessary features – complimentary wifi, luxurious toiletries, and ample space are just a few highlights worth mentioning. For something a little extra, service will drop by a few times in the day offering fresh fruit, chocolates, and turn-down service. The buffet breakfast was exceptionally put together – and it was in fact the best offering for a breakfast buffet I have thus far had the world over. There were endless options from fresh fruit juices through to health-conscious muesli and nuts; pancakes with chocolate, syrups and ice cream; decadent mini cakes; eggs cooked to your liking; quiche; and much, much more.
Be sure to book a spa treatment at some point throughout your stay, for the spa at The Palace Downtown Dubai is undeniably world-class, with exceptional service from the spa team. Service is perhaps the stand-out characteristic of this hotel, and every member of the team here make it their duty to impress guests from the start to finish of their stay. All this combined and you have an exceptionally pleasing to the eye property with a regal experience once inside, so it is little wonder World of Wanderlust dubs this the best luxury hotel in Dubai, to be enjoyed by luxury lovers the world over.
World of Wanderlust recommends booking a suite to take full advantage of the hotel’s position on the Dubai lake, and enjoy the Dubai fountain show of a night time.
