Location is everything as they say and the One&Only Royal Mirage, Arabian Court is well situated for enjoying the best of Dubai’s sun-worshipping and sightseeing.
The city’s ubiquitous downtown malls, the Burj Khalifa, and the Emirates golf course are all within a ten to twenty-minute drive. But the real pièce de résistance is the beautiful one kilometre stretch of private beach, part of Jumeirah Beach, one of the most fashionable parts of town. And it’s shared only with fellow guests from sister properties The Residence & Spa and The Palace, which together make up the One&Only Royal Mirage domain. It’s easily one of the nicest places in the emirate to take a dip in the warm, clear sea which seemed calm at all times. All rooms and suites face the water, and from most, you get a partial view of the sea through the lush gardens. While there is some ongoing building work visible across on Palm Island, this didn’t detract from the enjoyment of my stay, and there was no noise at all to detract from the ambience.
I consider this an excellent venue for a relaxing family holiday and yet it’s by no means overrun with children. As a spacious and low rise hotel—there are just four floors—it retains a quiet air even when at near full capacity, so it’s good for couples looking to chill out. There are daily activities like aqua aerobics, water polo and water sports on offer.
While Arabian Court has several stylish restaurants and bars, you’ll have the advantage of being able to wine and dine at The Palace too. A delightful meander through the grounds will lead you there in minutes, or hop on the shuttle.
If you’re looking for a relatively quiet light and bright hotel with impeccable attention to detail, a paired-back and modern Arabian experience, where you can relax by the beach and pool by day and then dine at stylish restaurants in the evening, then this is one to try.
