On the hunt for the ideal staycation spot in Dubai, Aficionado heads to The Palm Jumeirah and discovers a tropical haven.

Inspired by Paul Gauguin’s time in French Polynesia, the resort gives off a ‘tropical estate’ feel with its wooden walls and exotic flowers spread across the premises. The hotel staff will welcome you with a warm ‘bonjour’ as per the Sofitel tradition.

The Sofitel sits on the east crescent of The Palm and boasts a number swimming pools and shopping outlets, providing guests with plenty of options to spend their day. In addition, the hotel has a private beach where watersports enthusiasts can get their daily fix of adrenaline.

When it comes to the rooms, we suggest a suite with a sea view and a large balcony where you can enjoy the wonders of the manmade island. In terms of interior design, the suite is quite spacious and the Polynesian furniture ties the entire décor together.

The Millesime club, present in all the Sofitel properties around the world, is a private lounge reserved for exclusive clientele. It offers breakfast and all-day snacks and beverages to the guests allowing them to enjoy the resort in a quiet, private setting.

Dubai is a busy city and finding a quiet place for a quick getaway is not always easy, this resort offers an environment so calm and serene that it will make you forget the fact that your office is only ten minutes away.
