Overlook the fairytale-like gardens and the entirety of the Palm Jumeirah while devouring Le Jardin’s innovative bites for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For contemporary Japanese food with Italian flairs known as “Itameshi” cuisine, Matagi is the perfect place for you. Head to the Raffles Patisserie for classic French and Italian pastries. Delish! Seafood fans, make your way to vibrant Piatti, located near the white-sand private beach at Raffles The Palm Dubai, to truly satisfy your tastebuds. After a relishing dinner, enjoy the sound of groovy jazz at the resort’s classy SOLA Jazz Lounge.

The resort’s grand 389 rooms, suites and a collection of villas are remarkably spacious and exquisitely decorated with antique furnishing. Each guestroom contains its own private balcony or terrace, ensuring the privacy and comfort of each guest. Looking out at the panoramic views from your balcony, you’ll have your very own Rapunzel moment! For more quiet and seclusion, Raffles The Palm Dubai offers numerous collections of private four-bedroom villas located by the shore, with easy access to the private beach and gardens. These villas come with a built-in spa, a commodious area, and their very own private swimming pool. A staycation you’ll never want to leave. It’s like living in a palace furnished with 70,000 items by Italian ateliers of Francesco Molon. Oh, and don’t forget to look up and enjoy the shimmer of more than 6,000 Swarovski Crystal chandeliers. Did we mention the resort’s palatial pink marble was imported from Portugal?
