rty has exceeded all expectations with occupancy in the 80s for the first five months of operation.

One&Only The Palm has been hailed as an immediate success and its sister property One&Only Royal Mirage is also bouncing back with occupancy up 8% year on year, continuously in the high 80s and 90s.

And rates are also up, by 7% - above expectations according to group managing director Olivier P. Louis.

He added: “We are absolutely delighted with the way leisure business to Dubai has re-bounced and has now filtered towards the success of our latest property, One&Only The Palm.

The atmosphere of refined elegance paired with the attention to detail and generous space is what sets this intimate resort apart and makes One&Only The Palm a true jewel within Dubai’s hotel landscape.”

One&Only The Palm has 90 keys and four beachfront villas.
