Travel Blogs from Dubai
In the afternoon, we went to the Dubai Museum. Complete with dioramas of the culture and history of the area, it provided an interesting presentation of the Emirates. We learned about pearl diving, the Islamic religion, the games that Emrati children play, customary dress of the Emrati people, and much more. They also had a cool display on Bedouins. Then they had several rooms devoted to the archeological digs from the area ...
... Airways headquarters in Abu Dhabi. On our way, we stopped at Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, one of the largest mosques in the world with a capacity for 40,000 worshippers.
Once in Etihad the heat was horrible, luckily we got a got a golf car for a 30 seconds drive to the main door.
Every day, when we finish a meeting and we go back to the car, I think that has been the best meeting so far, but the one from today ...
... out all day. We had a stroll along the corniche and on our way back to the monorail noticed how class follows you around or in this case I was following class. A lady (I think) in full head to foot abaya with a niqab veil covering all but a slit for her eyes was walking in front of us, with this very modest garb she carried a duffel bag over one shoulder - with the Liverpool FC crest plainly visible. I was so awestruck by seeing this sight I forgot to ask myself the obvious ...
... of them. The bread must have had linseed in it. I started to feel better after about four hours into the flight. Well that made the time go quickly. Horrible for the passengers though who had to witness it. No more dramas you would think, but at Gatwick airport, I managed to find my suitcase but most of the flight did not. Apparently the majority of bags had been left in Dubai airport, Carole's ...
... I had the champagne, whiskey and white wine too. Hic.
I asked my very nice steward to tell me when we flew over the equator. I had managed a couple of hours sleep by then and he was kind enough to remember and let me know. He said they always get turbulence each side of the crossing due to the winds changing direction and he was quite right!
I watched a film called the Expatriate ...

Historical Traveler Reviews JA Palm Tree Court Dubai
Excellent hotel but the Jasmine club is overpriced.
overall excellent hotel . Very good restaurant choices and the golf club within walking distance. We booked in the Jasmine club but that was not worth the rather big price difference with a sea front junior suite.
Das Palm Tree Court hat mir sehr gefallen!
Wir wollten uns für eine Woche erholen und das Palm Tree Court war ideal. Wir hatten die schönste Woche überhaupt, nur faulenzen und die Seele baumeln lassen. Diese Gärten, Teichanlagen, Bachläufe sind alle so wunderschön, hier lassen sich sogar viele verschiedene Vogelarten sehen (inklusive dem einheimischen Pfauen!!). Das Essen war in allen Restaurants sehr gut, besonders aber die Desserts. Die Angestellten waren außerordentlich freundlich, besonders Ana Karina Roldan im japanischen Restaurant und Doulan Salim El Chami (der libanesische Koch), ein bezaubernder Kerl! Unser Zimmer war wunderschön und war mit so vielen kleinen Details versehen (z. B. eine Flasche Wein, Süßigkeiten und eine Obstschale zur Begrüßung). Wir waren schon einmal in Dubai, waren allerdings nicht viel herumgekommen. Der kostenlose Busshuttle bringt Sie aber an viele verschiedene Orte. Wir würden jederzeit wieder kommen!!!!
Personne n'a parlé des voitures de golf...
.......qui vous emmènent où vous voulez !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Après avoir lu plein de critiques avant notre départ, je n'arrive pas à croire que personne n'ait parlé des voitures de golf. Ils vous emmènent vraiment partout et pour rien !
Nous (mon mari, mon fils de 19 mois et moi) venons de passer 10 merveilleuses nuits au Palm Tree Court Spa et...................c'était absolument fantastique.
L'hôtel et ses environs sont magnifiques. Nous avions une suite junior en face de la mer et je pense que ce sont des chambres standards ; elles sont belles, grandes, possèdent un grand lit de très bonne qualité, une super douche de plain-pied, une baignoire grande et profonde, un double évier et elles étaient vraiment propres. En bref, tout ce qu'on pourrait souhaité, y compris des produits Elemis offerts !!
La plage est sensationnelle, avec tous les autres équipements, cet hôtel est irréprochable. Nous avons principalement mangé à La Fontana (buffet) qui était excellent et proposait un service de chambre. Le restaurant italien est également très bon. Malheureusement, le restaurant Signatures n'accepte pas les enfants donc nous n'avons pas eu l'occasion de le tester. Mais il y a également un restaurant asiatique appelé l'Orchid quelque chose. Je ne m'en souviens plus maintenant mais il avait l'air très bien.
Le service était excellent, la cuisine délicieuse mais les boissons étaient chères !! Attendez-vous à payer environ 8 € pour une pinte et 30 € pour une bouteille de vin.
Le Spa est également excellent, pour environ 90 € vous avez droit à un massage d'une demi-heure du dos, du cou et des épaules suivi d'une demi-heure de « soin du visage Elemis ». Une tisane et des fruits sont ensuite servis pendant que vous vous prélassez dans le coin salon surplombant la plage de sable blanc et la mer bleue turquoise. C'était très relaxant.
Une excursion à Burj est un must. Nous avons pris un goûter et des gâteries comprenant des fruits frais et un verre de champagne pour environ 60 € par personne. Cependant, nous avons pris un deuxième verre de champagne qui coûtait 34 € l'un, mais ça valait le coup.
Attendez-vous à ce qu'il fasse très chaud et assez humide mais après quelques jours on s'y habitue.
Si vous allez à Dubaï, je vous recommande de séjourner au Palm Tree Court ; vous y passerez d'excellents moments. D'ailleurs, nous avons hâte d'y retourner !!!
Nous avons vraiment aimé le Palm Tree Court !
Nous recherchions un hôtel reposant pour y passer une semaine et le Palm Tree Court était exactement ce qu'il nous fallait. Mon mari et moi-même avons passé une excellente semaine excellente à ne faire rien d'autre que nous lézarder. Les jardins, les étangs, les ruisseaux étaient tous magnifiques. Il y avait également une grande variété d'oiseaux (y compris des paons !!) La cuisine était excellente dans tous les restaurants, en particulier les desserts. Le personnel était très chaleureux, en particulier Ana Karina Roldan du restaurant japonais et Doulan Salim El Chami (le chef libanais) qui était adorable ! Notre chambre était belle et toutes les petites attentions supplémentaires comme la bouteille de vin, les confiseries et les fruits qui nous attendaient à notre arrivée nous ont vraiment fait plaisir. Comme nous sommes déjà allés à Dubaï dans le passé, nous n'avons pas eu besoin de visiter la ville mais la navette gratuite est à votre disposition pour vous emmener dans plusieurs endroits. Nous y retournerons sans hésiter !!
Really Enjoyed the Palm Tree Court!
We were looking for somewhere relaxing for a week and the Palm Tree Court was ideal. My husband & I had the best week doing nothing but lazing around. The gardens, ponds, streams were all beautiful, so many different types of birds (including the resident peacocks!!). The food in all the restuarants was superb, especially the desserts. The staff were so friendly, especially Ana Karina Roldan in the Japanese restuarant and Doulan Salim El Chami (the Lebanese Chef) he was such a lovely man! Our room was lovely and all the little extra touches, like the bottle of wine,sweets & fruit on arrival was great.
We have been in Dubai before so we didn't need to go out & about but the courtesy bus is available to take you to various places.
Would definetly go back!!!!
Relaxing & Luxurious
Have just returned from a very relaxing stay at the palm tree court & spa. We chose this hotel because it's far away from the building works at the jumeirah beach area and we read good reviews on trip adviser. It's a long way out of dubai & probably best suited to those just wishing to relax with a few easy side trips such as the Malls or Wild Wadi. Would love to have visited the souks but it felt too far & too hot to do so.
Things we loved:
Gorgeous suite (Royal Jasmine) with 7 feet wide bed & separate sitting/dining room, 2 huge marble bathrooms with elemis goodies & located only a few feet from beach.
Very clean palm fringed beach
Masses of very comfy sun loungers & lots of beach towels
Nice swim up bar in pool (pool bit small but there are a few pools)
Absolutely no mosquitoes or any other biting insects
Very friendly efficient restaurant & housekeeping staff
Peace & quiet
The Spa - book a treatment early on in your holiday as you'll want to go back again. Royal Jasmine suites entitle adults over 16 to free half hour massage which you can upgrade & just pay difference.
La Traviata Italian restaurant (at the Jebel Ali next door)
The Signature restaurant breakfasts for table service with a smile - our waiter remembered our likes & dislikes by second day. If not in Royal Jasmine suite you'll have breakfast in La Fontana which looked fine but much much busier & maybe a bit of a bunfight at popular times.
Things which could have been better (really only one thing - butler service!!)
When we checked in we accepted the upgrade to Royal Jasmine which was definitely worth it in many ways. We were told this included butler service. Now it's not something we needed but decided to use it with very disappointing results - a few examples (there were more incidents) follow: they promised to unpack for us whilst having breakfast on our first full day (we'd arrived late the previous night) - didn't happen & still hadn't by 5 pm when we returned from beach - bit annoying as would rather have done it ourselves when we arrived.
They also promised to book our excursions e.g. Wild Wadi water park & high tea at Burj al Arab. We had to chase several times over several days only to be told Burj al Arab by then was fully booked.
There was also a lot of confusion over whether our request for late check out had been processed - important with car booked to airport for 11pm! It took the involvement of the (excellent) duty manager, Mandy, the night before we were due to leave to finally sort it. She also took our comments on board about lack of follow through by butlers - in fact butler service was a hassle rather than a help.
Basically we can do without a butler of course but it's annoying to delegate tasks only to find out our butler hadn't processed a single one of them & we had to waste time chasing.
A few things to be aware of:
One of the Palm Island projects is being constructed out to sea opposite the hotel - this really was no problem but of course this means you're not looking at unlimited sea-scape which is probably everyone's ideal. The look is more that of a lagoon and you can see the causeway which lorries use but it really is a long way out & in the distance. You will see a lot of container ships too which are not especially beautiful - the huge Jebel Ali port is just around the bay. It didn't bother me and still thought it better than being in the middle of the Jumeirah building site. It helps that the sea seems very clean despite the work off shore. We did hear the odd rumble of 'thunder' which another traveller explained as tons of hardcore etc being dumped but again no problem.
We recommend nightime shopping in Mall of the Emirates or Ibn Battuta Mall - there is a shuttle bus leaves the jebel ali about 7.45 pm - do book your seats & get there a few minutes early as it can get busy & some people just turn up without booking then take seats. SHOP ON LATE NIGHTS when the malls are open to midnight (wed to sat I think) as otherwise you'll have barely 2 hours in the mall & especially Mall of the Emirates deserves a lot longer. The shuttle bus also doesn't pick back up till after 11 which is not ideal on nights when the mall shuts at 10 but taxis are cheap.
Finally flights - we flew into Abu Dhabi with Etihad (free flights courtesy of Independent newspaper). The Palm Tree Court is set well back from the road from Abu Dhabi to Dubai - less than an hour from airport to hotel. The hotel will organise a very comfortable car for about £12 from/to Abu Dhabi if you're staying in Royal Jasmine - it's free to Dubai airport. We hadn't sussed this before arrival & unfortunately on arrival we took the Etihad courtesy bus which, after a wait of 45 minutes at the airport then took us all the way into the centre of Dubai so we had to get a taxi back out. What a waste of time. Can't say I was impressed with the Etihad flight at all (very cramped) but hey it was free so churlish of me to complain.
Sorry review is so long - hope it's some help though.
Would not go back!
This was my third time in Dubai and on each previous occassion I had stayed in the Jasmine's Suite in the Palm Tree Court. However on this occassion we also stayed in the One and Only Royal Mirage and the Manidat Jumeriah which were both surperb and to which I would return time and time again. However I cannot say the same for the Jebel Ali it was most disappointing with the food not to a very high standard in comparsion to the above hotels. The room was not in the Jasmine Suites and therefore although in the Palm Tree Court I would consider most basic. The Jebel Ali is very much out on its own between Dubai City and Abu Dubi and therefore needs to step up a gear with regard to the accommodation. The Palm Tree court is sold as a 5 star hotel I would only rate if a 4. With all the new hotels in Dubai and the competation between them I thinkg you would get a better standard of hotel and service for the price they charge.
The best Holiday ever
My husband ,2 daughters (19 and 16 years and extremely hard to please) and I, have just returned from the most fantastic holiday we have ever had!!! When booking we decided to upgrade to the palm tree from the Jebel Ali and we were not dissappointed. We had travelled overnight and arrived at 9am in the morning. Our rooms were not supposed to ready untill 2pm that day but were ready and waiting for us. The reception staff greeted us and immediately got us refreshments we were then transported by golf buggy to our rooms. The rooms were huge with biggest bed that I have ever seen. They have Elmis products in the bathroom snacks and a great mini bar all of which are replenished every day without fail. The staff are second to none and cannot do enough for you. Once you have been there a few days the majority of them even remember your name. The restaurants were all superb and the service excellent. The French restaurnt was a little pricey and A La Carte (so fairly small portions) however, it was delicious. The beach is clean at all times and getting a bed and parasol is never a problem, with a beach attendant on hand to set it up for you. There is a young man who rides around on a beach buggy for most of the day serving you with any drinks that you want. He was a phillipino who has the cutest voice and smile in the complex!!! The pools are also excellent with a well manned swim up bar available at 2 of them. Make sure you make use of the golf buggys, which take you anywhere withing the complex... very useful if you don't fancy walking! and can be called from your room.
The only problem that we encountered was that we unable to take the girls into a bar for a drink after we had eaten as they only allow people over 21 to go in them. However we used to get a buggy down to the sports cafe as children and teenagers were welcome. Although we were unble to go to the bars with the girls this is the law in Dubai we therefore excepted it without a problem although others were not to happy.
We went to a different hotel in Dubai last year which was in the middle of the building work and was not as nice as the palm tree,so if you want a fist class hotel without the building work going on around you book The palm tree court and YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPPOINTED !!
Keiner hat die Golf Carts erwähnt...
.........mit denen man ÜBERALL hinfahren kann!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nachdem wir vor unserer Abreise viele, viele Kritiken gelesen hatten, kann ich es gar nicht glauben, dass niemand die Golf Buggys erwähnt hat. Mit ihnen kann man wirklich überall hinfahren, und sie kosten nichts! Wir (mein Mann, 19 Monate alter Sohn und ich) sind gerade von einem wunderschönen 10-tägigen Aufenthalt im Palm Tree Court Spa zurückgekommen und.....................es war einfach fantastisch. Das Hotel und die Umgebung sind unheimlich schön. Wir hatten eine zum Meer gelegene Junior Suite, was die standardgemäßen Zimmer sind, glaube ich, und sie sind wirklich schön, mit riesemgroßem Bett, fantastischer ebenerdiger Dusche, riesiger tiefer Wanne, Doppelwaschbecken, sehr sauber - alles, was man sich nur wünschen könnte einschließlich kostenloser Elemis-Produkte!! Der Strand ist wahnsinnig schön - es gab wirklich an dem gesamten Hotel überhaupt nichts auszusetzen. Wir haben meistens im La Fontana gegessen (Büffet), das super war, oder ließen uns den Zimmerservice kommen. Auch das italienische Restaurant ist sehr gut. Leider sind im Signatures Restaurant Kinder nicht erlaubt, deshalb konnten wir es nicht ausprobieren, aber es gibt auch ein asiatisches namens Orchid ?? Weiß nicht mehr, aber das sah auch sehr gut aus. Der Service war klasse, Essen super, Getränke teuer!! Rechnen Sie mit ca. 7,50 Euro für ein großes Bier und 30 Euro für eine Flasche Wein. Der Wellnessbereich ist auch fantastisch, für ca. 90 Euro kann man sich für eine 1/2 Stunde den Rücken, Hals und Schultern massieren lassen, danach eine 1/2-stündige Schnupperstunde der Elemis Gesichtsbehandlung, gefolgt von Kräutertee und Obst, abhängen im Sitzbereich mit Blick auf den weißen Strand und das türkisblaue Meer; es war sooo entspannend. Lassen Sie sich auf keinen Fall einen Ausflug zum Burj entgehen, wir hatten dort unseren Nachmittagstee, und zwar der extravaganten Art mit frischem Obst und einem Glas Champagner für ca. 60 Euro pro Person - wir hatten jedoch noch ein 2. Glas Schampus, das 35 Euro PRO PERSON kostete - aber das war es uns wert. Das Klima ist wirklich heiß und ziemlich feucht, aber nach ein paar Tagen hat man sich daran gewöhnt. Falls Sie hier buchen möchten, würde ich das Palm Tree Court empfehlen - Sie werden einen super Urlaub hier verbringen; wir können es gar nicht abwarten, zurückzukommen!!!
Nobody mentioned the golf carts......
.......which take you EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't beleive after reading through loads of reviews before we went that no one mentioned the golf buggies. They literally take you everywhere and cost nothing !
We (myself, hubby and 19 month old son) have just returned from a fabulous 10 night stay at the Palm Tree Court Spa and ......................it was absolutely fantastic.
The hotel and its surroundings are gorgeous. We stayed in a sea facing junior suite which I think are the standard rooms and they are lovely, huge great big bed, fantastic walk in shower, massive deep bath tub, double sink, really clean - everthing you could wish for, including complimentary Elemis products !!
The beach is stunning - along with everything else, you really could not fault it at all. We ate mainly in La Fontana (buffet) which was brilliant or had room service. The italian restaurant is really good too. Unfortunately the Signatures restauarant doesn't allow children in so we didn't get to sample that one but there is also an Asian one called Orchid ?? Can't remember now but that looked lovely too.
The service was brilliant, food fab, drinks expensive !! Expect to pay about £5 a pint and £20 for a bottle of wine.
The Spa is also fantastic, for about £60 you can have an 1/2 hour back, neck and shoulder massage followed by 1/2 hour "taster Elemis facial", followed by herbal tea and fruit lazing in the lounge area, overlooking the white beach and torquise blue sea, it was sooo relaxing.
A trip to the Burj has GOT to be on the agenda, we had afternoon tea and had the indulgent one which included fresh fruit and one glass of champagne for approx £40 per person - however we had a second glass of champas which cost £22.50 EACH - but well worth it.
Expect it to be really hot and quite humid however after a couple of days you do actually get used to it.
If you are going, I'd recommend you stay at the Palm Tree Court, you will have a fab time, we can't wait to go back !!!
