One&Only Royal Mirage Dubai
Travel Blogs from Dubai
The penultimate leg of our journey started with a long wait in the hotel cafe. I don't think any of us were up to walking or exploring anymore so we made ourselves comfortable and settled in until our 10.30 PM pick up to KL airport which I might add, is a long way from the city. Check in was quick and painless and we wiled away the time in another cafe as our flight wasn't until 2 am. There's not much open late at night in an airport but Sheryl and I ...

... Thanks Sammy. That has put my mind at rest!" Now I was at peace I was free to enjoy the amazing experience of the desert. I must say it was some off the best fun I have ever had. After stopping to release more than 50% of the air from the tyres from 37 psi to 15 psi, we were off. Bars were there for good reason i discovered. Had to hold on tightly with both hands. The only time to take pics was when we stopped to allow ourselves a better run up the dunes. There were roughly ...

Historical Traveler Reviews One&Only Royal Mirage Dubai
Who is this fool!!
I had the pleasure of staying at the Arabian Court last week and i'd forgotten service could be that good. Take a look at what we've got in the UK and then re-write this.......... The whole place will knock you for six. So what if they encourage you to join in the pool activities, you don't have to and i'd say more participated in the event than didn't. I didn't hear you mention the iced water/fruit/cold towels/ and sunglasses service they offer. Service in the restaurants was leisurely but the food was well worth the wait. Rooms fab, buildings magnificent (shame my photos didn't match!), staff superb. I'm running out of superlatives. Wake up. I for one will be returning to this hotel or are you one these people who are never satisfied.
Great Design, shame about everything else!!!!
The "One & Only" Royal Mirage, well this hotel has to be the most disappointing hotel i have stayed at in Dubai.
The one thing you cannot fault is the design of the hotel, grand is an understatement. However, that is the where the supurlatives end.
For a start, would you expect a 5 star hotel to have their staff walking round the pool asking people to join in the pool basket-ball games or doing water aerobics???
All the restaurants had a 2 hour waiting list and during our 3 night stay, 2 of the restaurants were closed for private party bookings.
Mina a Salam is a newer and better version of this hotel... The best service in dubai is the Royal Meridiene, so far......
A world class resort
Stayed for a week at the Arabian Court and my expectations were more than surpassed. The standards of service are excellent in every way. The multi-national staff of over 1,000 is superb. The facilities, the architecture, the gardens, the restaurants, the total ambience will take your breath away. Book now and be prepared to be delighted.
Arabian Court is one third of the whole Royal Mirage resort. The hotel is decorated in arabian style and is quieter than The Palace. Food is great and of a wide variety. The hotel looks out on to the beach and then on to the construction of The Palm offshore. They were working 24hours when we were there in late August, but the only inconvenience was the spoilt sea view. Eating out of the hotel and in more public areas is cheap in comparison. The City Centre Shopping Centre is very large and has many restaurants to suit all. The taxi's are very cheap compared to in the UK. Everywhere inside is air conditioned which is needed as the outside temperatures can be very hot and humid. There is alot on construction works going on everywhere in Dubai, but as this resort is right on the beach they are of no significance. We visited the Jumareih Beach Hotel one evening and this is the total opposite of Royal Mirage in the way it is far more geared up for many family's and doesn't have the same arabian feel. Overall our stay was wonderful and the perfet place to just relax and get away from it all. Only going for four nights was no problem.
From the moment you arrive at the airport, the experience begins. We were greeted by concierge at the airport, the smartest looking of all and promptly taken to our awaiting private car, offered a bottle of ice cold water from the built in refrigerator and begun our 25 minute journey to the hotel.
Since I combined a business trip with a short vacation in Dubai, some of the problems are work related, so if you stay in the hotel for pleasure only, you may not even notice this. My problems were:
Dies ist wirklich eines der besten 5 Sterne Hotels, in dem ich jemals übernachtet habe. Das einzige Hotel, das besser war ist das Rayavadee in Krabi, Thailand (da hat man seinen eigenen Luxus Pavillion und es kostet 330 Euro pro Nacht) und das einzige Hotel in dem ich mal war, das genauso gut ist, ist das Trump International Tower und Hotel mit Blick auf Central Park.
This is definitely one of the best 5 star Hotels that I have ever stayed at. The only Hotel that is better is Rayavadee in Krabi, Thailand. (individual detached pavilions with every luxury imaginable and costs about $500+ a night) & the only Hotel that I have stayed at that is as good is the Trump International Tower & Hotel overlooking Central Park. The Hotel is fabulous, service impeccable, the swimming pool & pool area is beautiful, and the staff bring you round cold towels and complimentary orange juice or water whilst you sunbathe. The rooms are very luxurious and the bathrooms are lovely. Food is great. The beach is nice too- though we mainly stayed by the pool.
I cant praise this Hotel enough!
I have stayed at this Hotel twice - words can not express the grandness and opulance of the Hotel or it's staff! The Hotel is amazing, its immaculate - the funny thing is though you never see anyone cleaning or bussing the marble floors?
Ich war hier bereits 2x und ich kann kaum beschreiben, wie toll und opulent dieses Hotel und die Angestellten sind. Das Hotel ist erstklassig und makellos - witzigerweise sieht man nie jemanden sauber machen oder die Marmorböden polieren!
