An ideal retreat for equestrian enthusiasts, this luxurious hotel neighbours the Desert Palm polo estate and just 20 minutes from Dubai Mall and Downtown Burj Dubai and a short 15 minute drive from Dubai International Airport.

At the Desert Palm, chic opulence emerges from a dramatic desert landscape. Thirty-eight elegant rooms and suites and villas nestle amid lush surroundings and palm trees, providing optimum privacy. The accommodation features simple yet striking architecture, fusing traditional Arabian style with modern, avant-garde design. Inside, guests can enjoy high-tech luxuries and designer amenities.

The Desert Palm polo estate boasts four championship polo fields, a riding school, stables, rare birds and vast green landscapes bathed in year-round sunshine. Polo games and riding lessons are held from October to April subject to weather conditions and availability.

At the hotel’s two restaurants and two bars, guests are invited to dine on innovative, flavourful cuisine in a setting of natural beauty and eye-catching décor. Watch a polo match while enjoying afternoon tea on the terrace overlooking the game field.

For the energetic, the Desert Palm’s fitness centre is a great place to work out. Alternatively unwind at the Lime Spa, where tailor-made therapies and a full range of beauty treatments will leave you feeling invigorated.
