A cult favorite for travelers and weekend revelers alike, FIVE Palm Jumeirah is the perfect weekend getaway spot in Dubai. It’s the right balance between offering a fun weekend to take the edge off a busy week, and experiencing the ultimate luxury staycation. The hotel is among the coolest hotel hangouts in Dubai, with its 150 metre long private beach, six buzzing swimming pools, and eight award winning restaurants, all designed to show you a great time. Imagine lounging on the beach deck with unparalleled views of the Marina whilst munching on a flavorful French-Mediterranean menu offered by chef Florian Barbarot or partying it up at Bohemia at Beach By FIVE – take your pick.

Stylish eats

Maiden Shanghai stands out as one of the most popular dining spots in the hotel with an MSG-free, organic gourmet menu that spans the entire Chinese palette, from Cantonese to Sichuan. Claiming to offer one of the best Dubai skyline views, this 1920’s Shanghai inspired restaurant spreads over three floors and an outdoor terrace lounge overlooking the hotel pools. In true oriental fashion, the restaurant also offers a private karaoke room to those wanting to take the party elsewhere.

Insider’s tip

The Naughty Noodles brunch at Maiden Shanghai is an experience that should not be missed. Every Saturday from 1 to 4 pm, live entertainment at the brunch features everything from exquisite dragon dances to magic shows with an endless menu of authentic Chinese food. In true FIVE Palm Jumeirah party style, this is the Dubai party brunch not to be missed.
