An ‘avant garde’ oasis away from the centre of Dubai, Desert Palm is set within a luscious polo estate. Housing exceptional art— most a nod to all things equine; be that the old endurance saddles artfully decorating a corner, or the majestic Nic Fiddian Green horsehead welcoming visitors at the hotel entrance. Even the spacious guest sweets have subtle reminders, with large canvas close-ups of saddlery and wrought iron sculptures. And of course not overlooking the optional birds-eye view of the polo fields. Their Pool Villas offer privacy and the Residences are spacious contemporary bungalows with clean lines and natural tones. The lap pool with aqua blue sun-loungers conjures up 1920s Gatsby glamour, along with the enticing terrace and its sultry jazz music. Gnarled trees in tall, charcoal grey pots, browns, creams and wood with splashes of green apples and trickling water features all merge together creating a tranquil haven. Dubai’s original boutique hotel, offering guest privacy, calm is key and staff are discrete. There is also contemporary European grill, Rare, a riding school and unisex mini spa with polo field views and an enticing menu of beauty rituals, scrubs and massages.
