STYLE, INNOVATION, DESIGN-Per AQUUM BRINGS BREATH OF FRESH AIR TO DUBAI WITH THE OPENING OF NEW RETREAT DESERT PALM
Set in the graceful, manicured surrounds of a private polo estate, Desert Palm is surpassing expectations and challenging the stereotype of the towering city by introducing signature Per AQUUM chic to Dubai. Elegant, understated, verdant, boutique, low-rise – Desert Palm basks easily in the desert landscape to provide a refreshing, avant-garde contrast to the conventional flamboyance of the city’s latest skyscraping hotels.
Flavourful culinary offerings at Dubai’s most sought after property With fresh ingredients and creative, innovative cuisine, Desert Palm is imbued with the Per AQUUM signature of daring to be different. From stone baked pizzas, fresh pasta, Arabic delicacies, international cheeses, crisp salads and decadent desserts, the team at Desert Palm have excelled at the range of choice and variety of flavours on offer. Menus can be tailored to guests’ specific cultural and dietary requirements and matched with world class wines or simply enjoyed in the comfort and sophisticated style of the restaurant, the wine wall, bar, private dining, destination dining, in room dining or gourmet café.
Naturally modern guest rooms and villas In the heart of this extensive private polo estate lies a secluded retreat. Just 26 elegant suites and villas set against the backdrop of lush surrounds, green fields and shady palm trees; a true haven for those looking for an alternative to the busy city centre. Inspired by a modern Arabian aesthetic, the design features broad spaces and creative use of light and textures within in a ‘naturally modern’ framework. Rooms feature bold elements of wood and ceramic textures, expansive windows overlooking the polo fields and high tech luxuries, designer amenities and locally inspired artwork all reflecting the Middle East surroundings.
