Overview

The Retreat Palm Dubai is a luxury hotel located on the famous ‘Palm’ which is one of Dubai’s most iconic landmarks. It’s a great ‘introduction to wellness’ rather than a hard-core retreat (as children are welcome) and it’s the first wellness focused hotel in the UAE. Sunshine is pretty much guaranteed all year round. The Rayya Spa offers a range of personalised holistic wellness programmes which aim to restore mind, body and spirit. Fitness is high on the agenda too with two state-of-the-art gyms plus a range of daily group classes. Head here for a combination of spa, fitness, relaxation and healthy food.

When to go

Dubai is guaranteed sunshine all year round. It's best to avoid peak summer as it gets very hot and humid.
