Hotel Review: Fairmont The Palm Dubai Resort

We had an overnight staycation experience at Fairmont The Palm Dubai on a weekday and had a grand time. This 5-star resort is located in the heart of Palm Jumeirah Islands and features views of Dubai Marina and the Arabian Gulf.

We took advantage of a UAE resident’s offer that they were running. About AED 599 for an overnight stay which includes a complimentary daily AED 599 credit to be used in their F&B outlets and in-room dining. Quite a good deal!

Staycation at Fairmont The Palm Dubai – Beachside

Fairmont The Palm is an Arabian-style sanctuary where you can enjoy a relaxing staycation experience. Check-in was quick and Mariamu from the reception informed us of what’s included in our hotel package. She was very helpful and courteous. She also informed us that Fairmont is part of the Accor Hotels group so if ever we wanted to join the Accor membership, we could enjoy exclusive perks from various hotel properties under this brand.

The lobby is grand and very spacious. We headed straight to our room.

Deluxe Sea View Room

We were glad to have gotten a Deluxe Sea View room. This is one of the most popular rooms – Arabic touches, warm colors, elegant surroundings, and breathtaking panoramic views of the Palm and the Dubai Marina skyline. It’s perfect for your next romantic date night.

The Deluxe Sea View room features a comfortable king-size bed, stocked mini-bar, coffee and tea facilities, a spacious balcony with beautiful views, and many more.

WiFi Internet

After checking in, I checked the free WiFi speed and it registered a Download Speed of 8.26 Mbps. It’s good and fast to browse emails and check some social media stuff. This Dubai Travel Blogger still needs to work in between staycations so it’s good to have accessible WiFi internet in the hotel.

The bathroom features a bathtub, walk-in shower with rain shower fixture, and separate walk-in toilet and bidet. It also features complimentary toiletries from Elemis. The room has a huge glass window that oversees the bedroom. For the more prudent ones, you can drop the window blinds down.

Swimming Pool

We spent a lot of the time of our staycation at the pool area. Fairmont The Palm has a number of pools available. They have a separate swimming pool area for adults and kids.

These pools are also huge that can accommodate the guests who are checked into the hotel. I like that I was able to do a few laps and swim. At the same time, there are shallow parts in the pool if you just want to casually sit and soak up the sun.

Fairmont The Palm is a beachside resort and it’s great that guests have the option to head to the beach. They also have a number of beach sports and beach activities available if you wish to avail of them. We didn’t spend much time here though as we were really satisfied lounging in the pool area.

Before you head out into the pool area, you will be able to pass by the gym/fitness center. The Health Club at Fairmont The Palm is a great environment to get fit with state-of-the-art fitness machines available.
