Located at the exit from Dubai, on the road to Oman, this design boutique hotel, both intimate and affordable, overlooks the polo club and its 61-hectare palm grove.
The minimalist architecture of Jordan stone sets the tone. The soothing and calm interior contrasts with the glitz of the city. Beige dominates throughout and is punctuated by notes of brown and green. Clean lines in the rooms allow the villas to blend in with the landscape, visible through the large windows. In the 20 rooms and villas, horseback riding serves as a common thread, an echo of the spectacle unfolding before your eyes. As four polo fields frame the hotel, you will be able to see the games from your room during the season. Riders, whether they are beginners or experienced, will appreciate being able to ride some of the horses from the club's stables.
The Meliá Desert Palm also has a Spa and a thermal centre, a great Argentine steak house, and four tennis courts.
