Although the resorts location is inconvenient for those planning on sightseeing, its private beach and other amenities makes Sofitel a hit with couples and families who are on a vacation.

The ‘Junior Suite’ Room

Having been to several hotels, I can ‘without-a-doubt’ state – “Sofitel the Palm has one of the most beautiful rooms I have ever seen”. It attracts your eyes as the room was mostly cladded in bright pink! The first thing I noticed was the super stylish bathroom that offers Lanvin or Hermes toiletries against a walk-in ‘rainfall shower’ and a massive bathtub!  My Junior Suite had 2 balconies that overlooked the Arabian Gulf (a few rooms face Palm Jumeirah) and all basic amenities such as a minibar, a bose wave audio system, dumb bells and a SAMSUNG 40” LCD screen TV 😉 ❤️

Warning: Sleeping on the king-size MyBedTM could be a bad idea. You may never want to get up from that chilled, cozy and soft bed 🙁

That's the #view from my 'Junior #Suite' (AED1700+ per night) at @sofitel @sofiteldubaipalm 😍❤️👏🏼🌴 #Sofitel #sofitelthepalm

Drawbacks

I could not enter my room at night as the lock detection system outside my room got spoilt. I had to go back and fourth from the reception atleast 4 times to get it fixed.
