Recently, I had the pleasure of embarking on a luxurious getaway to the iconic One&Only Royal Mirage in Dubai, and it was nothing short of extraordinary. Nestled amidst 65 acres of enchanting bougainvillea-scented gardens and boasting unparalleled views of Jumeirah beach, One&Only Royal Mirage is a haven of Arabian elegance and opulence. During our three-night stay at The Palace in a stunning One Bedroom Suite, my partner and I were captivated by the seamless blend of classic style and Middle Eastern charm that defines this remarkable destination.
From the moment we arrived, we were enveloped in the timeless allure of One&Only Royal Mirage. The property’s distinct fusion of Arabian elegance and classic style creates an ambiance that is both regal and inviting. The meticulously landscaped gardens and five heated swimming pools further enhanced the sense of tranquillity and luxury, offering an idyllic escape from the bustling city.
One of the most remarkable features of One&Only Royal Mirage is its 1 km long private beach. This rare gem in Dubai provided us with a serene retreat, allowing us to unwind against the backdrop of the azure Arabian Gulf. The resort comprises three distinct hotels – The Palace, Arabian Court, and the Residence & Spa – each exuding its own unique charm and catering to a diverse array of preferences.
A highlight of our stay was indulging in the renowned spa facilities at One&Only Royal Mirage. The oriental Hammam, a fixture of Dubai’s cultural heritage, offered a transcendent experience that left us feeling rejuvenated and revitalised. The One&Only Spa’s commitment to “unwind, restore, elevate” was palpable in every aspect of our visit, and we were thoroughly impressed by the pedi/mani studio, hair salon, and state-of-the-art fitness centre.
With no fewer than 16 exceptional restaurants and venues, One&Only Royal Mirage is a paradise for epicureans. The diverse array of culinary offerings ensured that every meal was a delightful exploration of international and local flavours. Whether we were savouring authentic Middle Eastern cuisine or indulging in global gastronomic delights, the dining experiences were nothing short of exceptional.
What sets One&Only Royal Mirage apart is its commitment to providing guests with unparalleled experiences. Access to the world-renowned Aquaventure waterpark at Atlantis, The Palm, the largest waterpark in the world, was a delightful inclusion that added an extra layer of excitement to our stay. The kids club and an extensive selection of land and water sports ensured that there was something for everyone, regardless of age or inclination.
Throughout our stay, the staff at One&Only Royal Mirage were the epitome of hospitality, delivering service that was truly second to none. Their warmth, attentiveness, and genuine desire to ensure our stay was unforgettable left an indelible impression, and we departed with memories that will linger for years to come.

The expansive property offers numerous areas for quiet retreat and privacy, ensuring that guests can find peace and solitude amidst the resort’s grandeur.
