Sofitel Dubai The Palm is the epitome of luxury, situated within the East Crescent of Dubai’s renowned Palm Jumeirah.

As you’ve come to expect from the Sofitel hotel collection, you will receive a luxurious and warm French-Polynesian welcome here.

While the buzz of Dubai’s attractions are nearby, you can melt into this indulgent sanctuary where waves of the Arabian Gulf lap up onto a golden beach and the palm trees sway.

Within Sofitel Dubai The Palm, you’ll find green walls bringing a sprinkle of the tropics indoors, alongside design elements that add local Arabian flair to this island chic resort.

Whether you’re seeking a romantic retreat or a fun-filled family holiday, you can stay in one of the 546 refined and comfortable rooms, suites and private villas at Sofitel Dubai The Palm.

Even in the classic rooms you’ll find large soaking tubs, free-standing rain showers and a lounge and work space, as well as your own private balcony or terrace that looks out onto the lush gardens or over the Arabian Gulf. The villas provide you with a private pool and Jacuzzi too.

As a family-friendly hotel, there are also family rooms and spacious apartments available.


Bars & Restaurants


With seven bars and lounges, you’ll always find a haven for your evenings. As the sun goes down, you could enjoy shisha by the water’s edge to ambient tunes at Maui, or watch live matches in the sports bar - the choice is yours. Expect the best of Emirati hospitality at Sofitel Dubai The Palm.


Sofitel Dubai The Palm has a wide range of culinary experiences for you to try with its five restaurants. Whether you’re feasting at the lavish family-friendly buffet restaurant of Manava, enjoying imported prime cuts at the popular Porterhouse Steaks & Grills, or tucking into the catch of the day at the pagoda-style Moana Seafood Restaurant, you’ll always feel satiated. Plus you can dip and dive into the dish-sharing concept of The World Eatery.

Beach & Pools

Swimming Pools

Water plays an important role at Sofitel Dubai The Palm, and you’ll find six heated swimming pools scattered around the resort so you’ll never tire of the same view. The main pool looks out onto 500 metres of pure white sands, where the pink blush of bougainvillea and tropical palm trees create an oasis vibe around the sundeck.


With arguably the best private beach on Palm Jumeirah, you’ll want to make the most of it and hire a shaded tiki cabana or lounge under a beach umbrella while enjoying a cooling drink and light bites from Sofitel Dubai The Palm’s beach restaurant, Maui.

For Families

Amura Kid's Club

Younger guests can enjoy indoor and outdoor activities provided at Amura Kids Club, for four to 12 year-olds, as well as pool slides and a kid’s-only water fun zone.

Spa & Wellness


If you’re a fitness fanatic then you’ll love the Sofitel fitness gym, with its high-tech equipment and certified instructors. On the gym’s rooftop, you will find the X-FITNESS zone for high-intensity classes, as well as tennis courts with accredited tennis coaches. You might like to join a FloatFit HIIT class, where you can enjoy an on water full-body workout using floating aqua boards.


Immerse yourself in a world of wellness at the Sofitel Spa, which has a separate zone for men and women, each boasting their own indoor plunge pools, sauna, steam rooms, hamman and ice fountain. Using organic ingredients and advanced techniques, restore balance with purifying facials and soothing massages, either within the indoor treatment rooms or in a secluded outdoor cabana.

Activities and Entertainment

Venture to the resort’s private jetty, located at one end of the beach, to enjoy sea cruises or motorised watersports. At the other end, you’ll find other outdoor activities including kayaking, paddle boating, snorkelling, and beach volleyball.

Unique to Sofitel Dubai The Palm is Eco Golf, where you can purchase a bucket of fish-friendly EcoBioBalls and tee off from the beach into the sea, before they dissolve into fish food.

About the location

Sofitel Dubai The Palm is located on the East Crescent of Dubai’s iconic Palm Jumeirah, an architectural feat that can be seen as you fly into the UAE’s most glamorous city.

When you’re not immersing yourself in all the resort’s recreational activities during your luxury Dubai holiday, you can easily explore this opulent city, with its incredible skyscraper architecture, world-renowned designer malls, and indoor amusement parks.

Amid this modern buzzing metropolis, Dubai is steeped in a 5,000-year-old rich heritage, which you can discover as you explore cultural treasures such as Al Fahidi Fort, which houses Dubai Museum, and the bustling souks (markets) with their piled-high spices and trinkets.

Cruise along in a traditional wooden dhow on Dubai Creek or head to the Sahara Desert and explore traditions of the nomadic Bedouin people.

Closer to Sofitel Dubai The Palm, in Palm Jumeirah you’ll find The Pointe, a waterfront destination teeming with restaurants, shops, and entertainment venues, as well as Aquaventure Waterpark and Dubai Marina Mall.
