An oasis of peaceful serenity in a city that often runs at 100mph. One&Only Royal Mirage combines opulent décor and Arabesque architecture with abundant space across its sea-facing rooms, sculpted gardens and lavish spa which is known throughout Dubai as the go to place for revitalising experiences. Despite its sophisticated look it’s far from stuffy, welcoming families and young fun adventurous types to enjoy Dubai.
The spa at One&Only Royal Mirage takes the style of an Oriental Hammam with its Moroccan lamps, marble floors and ornate tiled walls. Book in for one of the spa’s signature bathing rituals which can be taken as a couple’s treatment. After acclimatising to the heat of the room, lay back on the warm marble for an exfoliation treatment from the Hammam therapists, leaving you feeling revitalised.
Whether it’s lunch by the hotel’s kilometre long stretch of Jumeirah beach, a glamourous evening cocktail at The Jetty Lounge, or an unforgettable multi-course dining experience, savour every indulgent moment at One&Only. At Eauzone you’ll discover contemporary Asian dining at its finest with lotus leaf-wrapped sea bass and miso-glazed cod served against the backdrop of the Arabian Gulf. Traditional Moroccan dishes filled with aromatic spices are available from Tagine. Expect fluffy couscous, spices kebabs and melt-in-your-mouth roasted lamb. For young, fun couples, an afternoon at DRIFT brings together cool beats and fresh eats in an adult-only setting with a turquoise pool and views of the iconic city skyline.
Arabian-inspired adventures await for young explorers and parents alike. For ages four and above, KidsOnly is where they go to delight in the company of others their own age as they enjoy the playground, hunt for seashells, paint, try their hand at sand art and take culinary classes; all the while being supervised by the dedicated team of staff. As children play, parents are free to unwind and enjoy some alone time, possibly in the spa or taking in the buzz of the city.
As a city surrounded by desert, Dubai’s heritage is firmly cemented amidst the storied sand dunes that surround the city. As a family, you can tread your own path through the mesmerising expanse on a family desert adventure in one of the fully equipped four-by-four vehicles. In between adrenaline-fuelled dune bashing and dune surfing you can engage with traditional Arabian culture by learning archery under the guidance of an expert. Young guests will be left awe-struck by the weird and wonderful creatures that call the desert home such as oryx and desert lizards.
After days filled with adventure, your sumptuous room, suite or villa becomes your private haven. Rooms overlook the Arabian Gulf from their balconies or terraces, and feature marbled bathrooms, luxury amenities and generously sized interiors. The Prestige Rooms are much larger than others you’ll find across Dubai, featuring traditional mosaics and artworks throughout and a private balcony decorated with an ornate lamp. A stay in the Prestige Room also includes afternoon tea in The Library.
For unmatched indulgence choose the Beach Garden Villa. This enchanting escape sits secluded within palm-lined gardens, just steps from your exclusive beach and private pool. The villa’s interiors are exquisite with glittering chandeliers, large stone pillars and an Arabesque majlis-style lounge. There’s even the option to dine on your own personal terrace thanks to the in-villa dining options which offer a menu-hopping experience from across the hotel’s restaurants.
