Luxury Holidays on The Palm

Island with the midas touch

The Palm

The Palm is a man-made island that crowns the city’s sun-kissed poster child, Jumeirah. Everything on the island feels pristine and perfectly shaped, from its hyper-luxurious hotels to its gleaming beaches. The nightlife and dining scene is one to glam up for, with exquisite rooftop cocktail bars and gourmet international restaurants, and you’ll find designer boutiques and spas spilling out from the hotels.

The Palm is connected to the mainland via a monorail, so it’s easy to reach the famous sights of the city, from its ultra-modern shopping centres to its sand-dusted souks. If you’re travelling with kids, they’re in for a treat. Some of the best waterparks in the world are on your doorstep, with fun stuff like camel rides and seaplane excursions also jostling for attention.

Flight Information

Transfer Time

Transfer time from Dubai airport to The Palm is approximately 45 minutes.

When to go

Summers in Dubai are seriously hot – 40°C kind of hot. Although all buildings are air conditioned, outdoor activities can be uncomfortable in this kind of heat, and some may even be closed. November to April is the best time to visit Dubai; rain is scarce, and temperatures stay at a comfortable mid-20s average. 

Visa Information

British citizens will be granted a free 30-day visa upon arrival in Dubai. 


In most tourist destinations in the Emirates (such as Dubai and Ras al Khaimah), it’s customary to leave a 10% cash tip in restaurants. Small tips are appreciated for other services; aim for five to 20 UAE dirhams for porters bringing your bags to your room and for taxi drivers.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Dubai is Arabic. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
