  • rooms

    There are 95 Rooms, Suites and Villas. All rooms include a large marble bathroom with a separate walk-in rain shower and freestanding bath. The style is a blend of Moorish and Andalucian architecture with contemporary interiors, consisting of 90 rooms and four beachfront Villas. There are six low rise Mansions and four beachfront Villas.

    Located within the heart of the resort, the Manor House features Premiere Rooms, Executive Suites and the Grand Palm Suite, spread over three floors. The rooms and suites overlook the main pool or cascading outdoor palm-shaded terraces.

    For the ultimate in privacy and personalised service, enjoy outstanding beachfront living within the comfort of one of four 325m² two-bedroom Private Beach Villas. The Villa comprises an entrance foyer, open-plan living space with bar and dining area connected to a private-service kitchenette. Two master bedrooms offer dedicated en suite dressing rooms and bathrooms. The upper floor accommodation features fully-furnished balconies. Each Villa includes grand outdoor shaded seating and dining areas, plus spacious, lush gardens with a private temperature controlled swimming pool.

    Although all rooms here are big by Dubai's already generous standards, booking a Junior Suite will get you extra space and a private terrace. Rooms with gardens or terraces (some suites even have their own small private pools) might be ill-advised for unsteady toddlers, but could also be ideal for older kids who need extra room to let off steam. Most rooms have space for a cot or an extra bed.
