What we love: The Royal Villa with butler service and access to a private plunge pool
Catch up on rest from your flight in one of the lavish penthouses with a view of the Persian Gulf from the balcony. In the family garden suite, you can head downstairs to the pool, or wander a little further to the hotel’s two-kilometre stretch of secluded sands. There are also suites available with additional bedrooms and terraces, or the Ocean Suite sleeps up to seven.
When you opt for the Royal Villa, you’ll be waited on hand and foot by a private butler, who will serve you afternoon tea at your request. The Royal Villa also stands out for us because it includes a private plunge pool, with easy access to Jumeriah’s two-kilometre private pristine beach.
