The Residence and Spa oozes opulence and elegance; amidst the crazy skyscrapers of Dubai, this is an oasis of calm.
The only distraction from the arts of relaxation and peace-seeking pleasures was a male peacock, strutting arrogantly around the grounds and keeping a watchful eye on the guests. No doubt he was proud to be a resident here, and rightly so, for this hotel, boutique-style in its nature, is a rare find in Dubai.
Located in the heart of the One&Only Royal Mirage complex of three properties, as a Residence guest you have full use of the facilities and restaurants located at the Arabian Court and at The Palace. A handy shuttle service is available should you not want to take a stroll, or if the temperatures are really hotting up. On the flip side, the facilities and restaurant here remain exclusive to guests; privacy and intimacy are paramount at The Residence.
The hotel is divided into four blocks, each housing twelve rooms and suites and ensuring you are never too far away from the pool, the restaurant and reception. All the rooms graciously face the ocean, and the lush gardens and immaculately kept flower beds are a delight to wander around in the early morning.
Prestige Rooms and Junior Suites are very spacious and located on the ground and higher floors. For extra privacy, book the Junior Suite with a rooftop terrace. And if you’re looking for the ultimate hideaway, the Two Bedroom Villa may suit. Nestled in the gardens, it offers complete privacy with its own driveway and entrance and its own swimming pool, just meters from the beach.
The facilities offered throughout the greater Royal Mirage are extensive. The One&Only Spa at the Residence is particularly impressive and with a wealth of signature treatments, makes this a perfect choice for a spa and sun break.
