More about One & Only Royal Mirage Residence & Spa
We loved the Royal Mirage
We stayed at the Mirage for 5 nights at the end of our honeymoon in July. The hotel is out of this world as is the service. We stayed in a gold room which was worth every penny, super afternoon tea, great drinks and cocktails between 6-8pm and all free.
On leaving the staff presented us with a beautiful leather photograph frame which was so unexpected.
The staff in the gold club were excellent, really helpful. We ate in the dining room which was out of this world on our last night, the beach bar and grill was also lovely. The night club was good, it does not get busy till 12.30, the roof top bar in the arabian court was fantastic.
The weather was really hot but to be honest it did not really bother us, just kept dipping in and out of the pool.
The speed boat tour is a must you will find this on the beach, which is to DIE!! The sea was just like a war bath, very lovely. I would imagine that this resort would be amazing in December.
We will be returning.

Fantastic place to stay
I am writing this report on the hotel becuase it is without doubt one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in some super places over the years. The first time we visted we stayed in the Palace which we enjoyed but it was busy which did not stop our enjoyment at all. The room was very good except I orderd twin beds and found a very large double bed in the room. I complaned but it was 02:00 and we were tired and advised they had no more rooms. I agreed to speak to reception in the morning. When we woke we had a lovely room on the ground floor by the pool so we decided to stay in the room and share, the bed was so large it was not a problem. We ate at all of the resturants and enjoyed them all the worst I would say was the Beach house the best was Nina and the Celebrity Resturant.
When the time came to book our holiday the next year we both looked at one another and agreed to go back to The Royla Mirage but this time we would go to the Arabian Court, mainly becuase we fell in love with the roof bar and Ninas. We really loved the Arabian Court and found it much nicer than the Palace which amazed us as we enjoyed the Palace the previous year. The atomsphere at the Arabian Court was great you seem to mix more than the Palace. The staff were good but the Pool Boys were slow in getting water to you. The roof top bar is just stunning and the food was great. We have just come back from a winter break in Florida and in the cold UK weather, we talked about our holiday in May and guess what, we are going back to our wonderfull Royal Mirage for a third time amazing. I forgot to mention that in the Arabian court the rooms are larger and we got two large twin beds.
best holiday ever!
few months ago, was out in dubai at Royal Mirage
i think its the best holiday ever, although im only 14 im hoping to go out there again some time near christmas or maybe next june.
we met quite alot of nice new people
and the people who work there are way too nice and helpful!
We have just returned from a week at the 'One & Only' Royal Mirage. It was fantastic. The brilliant service started as soon as we walked through the door and continued all week. The hotel is modern but with an arabic twist. Staff are so friendly and seem to know and remember your name, even the man who turned down our bed . He covered our bed in rose petals and left a proverb and a delicious nibble by our bedside every night.
The food that we tried was delicious although we didn't try all of the restaraunts as 'Nina' which was modern indian and 'Eau Zone'which was modern asian were so good we went back to both twice.
The hotel is very good for lazing about although they do have free tasters of watersports you can do every day. There is also a gym if you feel the need. I also had a beauty treatment but theres so much to try we just didn't have the time!.
I would say the only down point was at present you can see & hear the building work that is going on next door but it isn't intrusive and the guys on pool duty can be rather slow with handing out the free water. Overall I can't wait to go back again.
Basically quite decent hotel, unfortunately in the middle of the world's largest construction site. Food inconsistent, and rather unimaginative.
Furnishings tend to make rooms quite dark. Afternoon tea a must. Definitely would not revisit as there are many places in the world offering better value for money.
The One and Only Royal Mirage-Arabian Court
"The garden view"
As I am interested in Oriental architecture and culture, it was my dream to stay at least a little in this luxurious resort. Unfortunatly, we stayed only 2 nights there and as I had a very bad winter in Romania I couldn't wait to feel the sun, get tan and brag about it on my return :))! So not much time to explore all the resort.
As you can see, luxury is the only word coming to my mind when I remember my stay in this dream hotel.
The room was big and so was the balcony. I'm sorry I didn't take a photo of the bathroom, it was amazing, I felt like a princess there. On the corridors besides the Morrocan architectural style they played Arabic instrumental music, I really felt I was in a palace. All that was missing was my belly dancer costume ha ha!
The garden looked like a dream thanks to all the lighted palm trees and fountains.
"Swimming pool chairs"
"The Reception area"
I simply love this style...maybe I was a Morrocan princess in a past life..who knows?:p
Upon our arrival we were greeted with wet, refreshing towels and a cold traditional drink.
The One and Only Royal Mirage-Arabian Court 1
"View from our balcony"
As I have promised, I did my best to scan the other photos I made in this hotel...and they are not a few so I will see how I will manage to put them all on these pages :D
I simply loved this swimming pool! And I did play basketball in the water...alone, but I had a lot of fun :p
"A camel ...."
This was the very first camel I have seen in Dubai. I was so happy to see it since everybody kept asking me after my first trip to Dubai: "have you seen any camels?" and the answer was "no". But this one was the first and last...till now :)
"The same camel..."
One day in my office I was looking at a travel agency's catalogue as they had some nice offers for city breaks and as usual, I checked the Dubai offer. After reading it I started laughing like crazy...why? Because they had written there that in Dubai you see camels walking on the highways among luxurious cars...this means that during all the hours we spent driving there I was blind?ha ha!!!
"Part of the architectural style"
"Inside the resort"
That's a glimpse in the Givenchy Spa. The hammam is free for the hotel's guests but the only problem was that they had special schedule like one time ladies only, another one men only and another time only couples...and I was crazy to stay in the sun so not much interested about it at the time. WAS I CRAZY???I THINK SO :(
"Let's play chess"
Anybody wanna play? This is our view from the balcony from another angle...but as much as I tried i couldn't catch anybody playing :)

We could choose outside (open air) or inside.
And every morning we ate outside... overlooking the pool, the gulf,
and lovely birds are singing around us. :-)
So spacious ....
We had 2 big rooms, 2 toilets,1 walk-in closet, 1 bar counter....
Every day, fruits are served for us.
Royal Mirage Beach
Noise at Royal Mirage
I have just booked a week in Sept. for 2 couples celebrating a special occasion. The hotel is The Royal Mirage. I have just heard from someone who stayed there and they said it was very noisy even at night. Also very dusty. This would be a disaster for us. Please can anyone comment on this?
Re: Noise at Royal Mirage
In the past few months some of my friends stayed in hotels along the beach of Jumeirah and none of them complained of any disturbance caused by the construction work. Maybe you can also check with the tour agency in your area as they have a lot of customers and receive news from them.
I post you an URL, find the comment of a VT member about another hotel in Jumeirah Beach (Re: oasis beach hotel or hilton jumeirah).

Re: Re: Noise at Royal Mirage
Thank you for reply.
I could be wrong but I dont think the noise they referred to was from the Palm Project but other construction work in the area.
Re: Noise at Royal Mirage
I cannot imagine Roayl Mirage being dusty! It is one of the nicest hotels. I think the people you were listening to just like to complain about nothing.....
