One&Only The Palm

The elegant and private One&Only The Palm is a modern family paradise equal to its incredible sister property, One&Only The Mirage. Every detail is wonderfully presented and designed to provide family guests with a seamless experience of the very best recreation, dining, and relaxation.

The Look

Opened late 2010, One&Only The Palm blends Moorish and Andalusian themes with a contemporary Arabian interior style.

  • Designed by DSA International, the property is heavily influenced by the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain. The Moorish influence of design in Spain became a key motif for the One&Only master design.
  • The main colours used throughout are cream, gold, ivory, and white. These combine to an aesthetic that is less opulent and gilded, but refined and elegant.
  • The property is filled with pattered textiles and local craftsmanship. These include latticed wooden arches and floral motifs on both thick carpeting and marble flooring.
  • Lighting is a particular highlight, with intricate glass chandeliers used in combination with brass lanterns. These give the entire property a soft golden glow across darkened spaces and into the nighttime.
  • The grounds surrounding the low laying buildings are a wonderful compliment. They include shaded courtyards, enchanting fountains, landscaped gardens, candlelit pools, and handbuilt gazebos.


Family guests will enjoy every accommodation at One&Only The Palm. These are the ultimate standout suites for an incredible experience,

  • The Manor 'Grand Palm' Suite opens with a grand foyer, and a large master bedroom connecting to a master bathroom with freestanding marble bathtub and rain shower. This generous suite also includes a guest bathroom, living area with formal lounge, entertaining space, and dining area. There is also an expansive balcony with lounge and dining areas, as well as butler service and the option to connect to a Premiere Room for a two-bedroom suite.
  • Palm Beach Executive Suite with Pool has an unbeatable location overlooking the beach and a generous interior. This includes a large master bedroom and marble bathroom, and an expansive living area with workspace,  lounges, and dining space. There is also a furnished sun deck with private pool just steps to the beachside.
  • The Two Bedroom Beachfront Villa is the largest and most exclusive accommodation available. These two-floor private compounds provide ample relaxation and entertaining space in a secluded and peaceful setting. This includes a grand entrance foyer, open living space with bar, lounge, dining, and kitchenette spaces. There are two master bedrooms with adjoining furnished balconies and marble bathrooms. Also included are two large furnished balconies overlooking the ocean, a large private pool, private gardens, and butler service.
