Fodor's Expert Review One and Only Royal Mirage
Al Sufouh Rd., Al Sufouh, Dubai, Dubai, United Arab Emirates Fodor's Choice
The most romantic resort in Dubai, this hotel has four different hotels to choose from; while they differ in appearance and amenities, they are all tranquil, private, and spacious. The entire complex is fashioned like an Arabian palace, with lush palm-filled gardens, domes and arches, adobe-brick finishings, and nooks and courtyards with mosaics and tasteful water features. The sand on the beach is among the whitest available in Dubai, and views across the water lead to the other One and Only property, just a short shuttle-boat over to the edge of Palm Jumeirah. Rooms, like the entire resort, including the restaurants, are classic and understated, with exotic elements and rich, tasteful furnishings. The pool (at the Palace) is a dream; it is colossal and interspersed with palm-tree islands, which allow for plenty of private rendezvous.
