An urban oasis set amidst a 160-acre polo estate with a naturally contemporary design welcoming guests in
38 spacious rooms, suites and villas. A mere 20 minutes from Dubai’s urban centre, find yourself
in the lush serenity of Desert Palm, the perfect setting for an elegant hideaway.

From creative restaurants and bars showcasing culinary exhibitionism to indulgent journeys at Samāna Spa
to a riding school and championship polo fields, the resort’s manicured surrounds give
the world’s most elite travellers a haven to call home in Dubai.

A bold contrast to the conventional flamboyance of the city’s skyscraping hotels.
