The Palm Jumeirah is one of the two artificial islands in the form of palm tree on which numerous of residential villas and high class hotels are located. We chose Rixos The Palm Dubai, 5-star hotel with an excellent location on the palm with breathtaking view of the city, especially at night. Because of its location Rixos The Palm is a perfect place for vacations. The hotel is located 47 kilometers from Dubai International Airport and 30 kilometers from the city center.
Rixos The Palm is a luxury hotel, opened in 2012, with 230 modern and spacious rooms, from 52 square meters and more. Rooms are very clean and the staff is very helpful. In the room there are always free bottles of water.
Rixos The Palm offers a private sandy beach and an outdoor swimming pool, in which the water temperature was very pleasant for swimming, even though it was July with high temperatures, over 40 degrees Celsius.
The sea was very hot, but still acceptable for swimming. Surrounding is beautifully decorated and maintained.
The beautiful sandy beach, pleasant surroundings, pool with large beds instead of sun loungers and a view over the sea emphasize the luxurious impression of the resort and provide a feeling of quietness away from city life.
Because of its location on the palm, there is a half of hour drive to the city center, so you have to take a taxi. In front of the hotel cars of prestigious brands are always available and offer drive at an affordable price – drive to the Mall of Dubai costs approximately 20 EUR (23 USD). The Dubai city taxi is also available in front of the hotel, and is slightly cheaper. The hotel offers free shuttle service to the Mall of the Emirates with the hotel minibus and free water transfer to Dubai Marina.
