Situated on the fringe of the The Palm - the most sought after residential address in Dubai – the One & Only is in a world of its own; a world of palm trees, gardens and private beaches. Yet the city lights of Dubai are in the near distance. In a sense it is very much like the relationship between Miami and South Beach.
101 is the over water chill out lounge with day beds and a bar. It is a place for Tapas and cocktails and at night there is a spectacular view of the city’s skyline. Best of all, because it is adjacent to the marina, you can go by boat.
Nestled amongst the palm trees on a peninsula that faces back at the New Dubai skyline, the One & Only is a rare luxury: a secluded, stylish and very private resort surrounded by gardens, fountains and beaches on the edge of one of the Middle East’s most dynamic cities. Close enough in fact to venture in any time for shopping, yet far away enough to avoid the hubbub.
There are three if you count 101. The other two are Zest and Stay: both are under the culinary guidance of Michelin star chef Yannick Alleno. Zest is the more classic of the two with floor to ceiling windows, silver leaf, cut crystal and a refined atmosphere for a menu that mixes oriental and middle eastern cuisines. Stay is the more experimental choice. It features ‘sharing tables’ and unusual concepts such as a pastry library.
