While Dubai has its fair share of dra­matic five-star high-rises, with plenty at­tached to soul-de­stroy­ing mega malls, it’s not for us. Thank­fully, Desert Palms is the an­tithe­sis of this – a low-rise fu­sion of tra­di­tional Ara­bian ar­chi­tec­ture and con­tem­po­rary lux­ury, set within the ver­dant con­fines of a 60-hectare polo es­tate. Stay be­tween Oc­to­ber and April and be treated to views of a game on one of the es­tate’s four cham­pi­onship fields, ei­ther from the white stone ter­race of the Polo Bar or at one of the spa­cious Polo Vil­las. Con­ve­niently lo­cated 20 min­utes from the air­port and down­town Dubai, the re­treat also boasts two restau­rants, a spa and mes­meris­ing views of the city skyline.
