Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah

European elegance with arabesque flair

Combine sophisticated luxury, classic European charm, wonderful service, an acclaimed spa and a gorgeous private beach and you’ve got Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah — a sensational stay on the city’s most famous archipelago.

Situated far from the bustle of city, yet within easy reach of Dubai’s main attractions, this elegant hotel provides a respite from the UAE’s buzzing modern metropolis.

Though, a top-notch collection of trendy dining and entertainment venues means that you can have access to a taste of Dubai’s legendary haute cuisine and nightlife, without ever setting foot off of the luxe property.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • The spa is a tranquil, all-white sanctuary offering hydrotherapy facilities and more than 50 treatments for the face and body, some of which incorporate meditation and well-being techniques for a well-rounded experience.
  • Every guest at the Dubai hotel receives a personal concierge, who will do everything from escort you to your room upon arrival to score you a table at the city’s hottest restaurants.
  • Work on your tan on the property’s private beach or get busy with water sports such as snorkeling, kayaking, windsurfing and waterskiing.
  • Besides the Waldorf Astoria’s main temperature-controlled lagoon pool, there’s also an adults-only spot if you prefer quiet poolside relaxation.
  • Budding culinary artists can sign up for an interactive cooking class at the Vietnamese restaurant Lao. Begin at the Dubai resort’s spice garden to pick out fresh basil and lemongrass before heading to the kitchen to learn to prepare dishes under the expert guidance of chef Mai Nguyen.

Things to Know

  • On Fridays, the hotel’s Mezzerie restaurant serves The Secret Garden Brunch, a deluxe spread inspired by the property’s onsite garden. Live cooking stations, organic salads, freshly baked fruit pies, French cheeses and refreshing drinks are all accompanied by musical entertainment.
  • Make your way down to the beach at Palm Avenue for Monday and Thursday movie nights complete with snacks, cocktails and ice cream. Two separate showings (at 7 and 9 p.m.) are each geared toward families and adults, respectively.
  • The onsite Coco's Kids Club is open daily. It provides two complimentary hours of babysitting services per day, per child for hotel guests.
  • Arrive by yacht and dock your vessel at the luxury hotel’s jetty.

The Rooms

  • The rooms are bright, spacious and airy with décor that borrows from the Dubai property’s seaside location. Soft beiges, creams and ivory with accents of turquoise keep things both beachy and elegant.
  • Each accommodation features a terrace with a view of either the Arabian Gulf and the city’s skyline or Palm Jumeirah, the hotel’s pools and manicured lawns.
  • For the best night’s sleep, choose from a pillow menu featuring options like goose-down, cherry stone with optional heating and anti-aging vitamin E treated selections.
  • Luxurious marble bathrooms include dual vanities, large bathtubs (with a TV built into the wall so that you can watch as you soak) and a separate shower. Be sure to take advantage of the Salvatore Ferragamo toiletries.

The Restaurants

  • Tuck into Vietnamese cuisine at Lao, which creatively combines traditional methods and contemporary sensibilities for a one-of-a-kind dining experience. Try the family-style set menu or order à la carte favorites such as pho ga (chicken noodle soup) and prawn spring rolls.
  • Indulge in an international buffet for breakfast, lunch or dinner at family-friendly Mezzerie. The dining venue spotlights a different culinary theme each night, including Mediterranean, French, Indian and Tex-Mex.
  • Drawing from the heritage of the The Waldorf and The Astoria hotels in New York, the Palm Jumeirah property’s Peacock Alley is a sophisticated lounge serving teas, coffees, shisha and light meals over views of the well-manicured gardens.
  • Step into the glory days of the Italian Renaissance at the plush Serafina Bar, where luxurious velvets and eclectic glass-blown chandeliers lend an air of intrigue. Nibble on Venetian-inspired small plates and sip on oak barrel-aged cocktails or choose from premium cigars while enjoying live entertainment.
  • Dine on modern Italian cuisine at Social by Heinz Beck, a celebrated chef known for his La Pergola in Rome. The elegant restaurant offers a creative take on classic flavors. Try the cheesy fagottelli carbonara or beef tenderloin with white Alba truffle.
