You might have noticed that we’re big fans of Palm Jumeirah here at Hot Holidays, with the island off the coast of mainland Dubai being one of our favourite long haul destinations.

We’ve already explained some of the reasons why in one of our recent blog posts but thought we’d take a little bit of time to show off some of the top hotels if you decide to take our advice and head for the Palm in search of some summer sun.

First up on our countdown of the top six hotels is the impressive Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah Hotel, which is one of the very best 5* options if you want a little bit of luxury during your time in the Emirate.

Situated on Crescent Road on the outer edges of the Palm, the Waldorf Astoria sits in a fantastic position that offers views out across the clear blue waters of the Persian Gulf and also back towards the Dubai Skyline and Jumeirah Beach.

There are many of reasons why you might want to consider the Waldorf Astoria for a Palm Jumeirah break and you certainly won’t be disappointed if it does get the nod.

For a start, there is the luxurious accommodation, which ranges from a selection of stylish rooms that look out across the ocean to opulent suites with multiple bedrooms, luxury fittings, private balconies as well as butler service.

Think everything you would find in a high scale apartment back home – and then raise it another level…

Depending on how much you wish to spoil yourself when it comes to your accommodation, you might even benefit from complimentary transfers to a range of nearby attractions in a chauffeur driven Bentley Flying Spur; allowing you to sit back and relax in total luxury as you travel to your end destination.

There is a more traditional shuttle service also available for guests, which heads to the Aquaventure Park at the nearby Atlantis The Palm as well as the Mall of the Emirates.

That’s assuming of course that you even want to leave the hotel, because there are plenty of facilities within the Waldorf Astoria itself.

Right at the top of the list is the award-winning luxury Spa, which has twice been named as the Best Luxury Destination Spa in the United Arab Emirates.

With more than 3,200 square metres of space, you’ll be able to make the most of a huge array of facilities and take your pick from almost 50 of the best treatments available – all carried out by a professional team on hand to take you on a journey through the senses.

Even if you have the children in tow, Coco’s Kids Club means there is somewhere for them to stay entertained whilst you enjoy some time to yourself.

Here, youngsters aged from three to twelve will be kept busy with a range of different activities whilst you relax and enjoy some peace and quiet.

Saying that, you might use the spare time to try some watersports or to have a work out in the gym, whilst the hotel also has its own private beach where you can simply lie back and soak up the sun that beats down on Palm Jumeirah throughout the year.

Add into the mix the world class cuisine available in restaurants including LAO, Palm Avenue and Mezzerie and you’ll be able to enjoy a culinary journey around the globe without setting foot outside the hotel.

When you add all that together, it isn’t hard to see why we love the Waldorf Astoria Dubai and if you want to take a trip yourself, then we’re here to make it happen…
