Style International desert luxury
Setting Palm-shaped island paradise
The spectacular One&Only The Palm resort, stretched out over the Persian Gulf on Dubai’s tree-shaped Palm Island archipelago, has all the indulgent service, spa treats and impeccable dining you’d expect from a luxury UAE hotspot, topped off with superlative sea and city views.
Style Omani village oasis
Setting Hugged by Hajar Mountains
The award-winning Six Senses Zighy Bay beach resort in Oman is not just remote, it's like nowhere you've seen before: cradled by craggy mountains and dipping its toes into the opal blue waters of the Musandam's fjords. Die-hard Bond wannabes, this is your dream come true. Where else in the world can you choose to arrive by speedboat, 4x4 or paraglider?
Style Italo-Arab urban retreat
Setting Private polo estate
Anyone familiar with Huvafen Fushi's attentive service and extensive facilities will know the drill: this Arabian sister property may be small but it's perfectly formed, with more spa therapies and activities than you could ever hope to try on one holiday. Watch polo on the terrace, sniff out bargains in Dubai's souks or get involved in some seriously hedonistic nightlife: just 20 minutes from the airport, Desert Palm is the perfect city-break stopover.
