JA Palm Tree Court: Five-Star Beachfront Hotel
JA Palm Tree Court was like an oasis, a paradise located outside of the hustle and bustle of Dubai. As soon as we pulled up, the doors of our car were opened and we were greeted by name and taken into the grand reception area.
Check-in was smooth and swift and as with our stay at JA Ocean View Hotel, we were given refreshing towels, mint lemonade and homemade cookies. We were soon hopping onto one of the hotel’s golf carts and were taken to our room which was a beautiful beachfront junior suite.
Our room was generous in size and very open and spacious, and our huge king-size bed was a dream to sleep in!
Also in the room was a large sofa with table, a desk with chairs and large vanity unit. It was light and airy and decorated in neutral tones with highlights of purple and green.
Our bathroom was again very generous in size with his-and-hers sinks, a large bathtub and walk-in shower. I was very happy to find a huge selection of one of my favourite toiletries – Elemis – from the usual shower gel, shampoo and conditioner to the extra bath elixir, nail kit, scrub mit and more.
Of course the favourite part of the room was our beautiful private balcony . . .
From lounging around on, enjoying a glass of wine before going out in the evening, listening to sounds of the ocean to simply admiring the view, we loved this beautiful terrace.
Other extras in our room included robes and slippers, tea and coffee-making facilities, welcome gifts and a hand-written welcome note. I loved this little extra touch . . . very thoughtful.
Some people staying at JA Palm Tree Court were simply there for a relaxation holiday and had nothing more planned than spending a week in the resort relaxing and to be honest I can completely see why! The hotel has four swimming pools (of course we checked them all out) but we soon spotted the one for us . . . the beach front infinity pool with swim-up bar.
The hotel offers many activities from water sports to its own shooting range, but we already had a lot planned during our trip so we spent the free time we had relaxing by the pool.
There are golf carts available to take you wherever you want to go in the resort which is very lazy but so handy. I won’t lie, we actually used them quite a bit! But when we could muster up the energy for it, we took a walk around the grounds and boy is it worth it.
The gardens are lush and green, very well kept and stunning to walk around.
You may also bump into a few friends along the way . . .
Some of which are very adorable!
Even walking in the evening it is beautiful, the grounds are lit up and you can hear the sounds of the ocean.
Staying at JA Palm Tree Court really did feel like sampling a piece of paradise. Everything delivered on the five-star standards and more!

It was so relaxing! Wish we had more time to spend in the hotel, I could quite easily go back and just stay there!
This was by far the most tranquil hotel we stayed in when in the UAE. It was gorgeous!

It was such a special place, I never imagined there would be such an oasis hiding in Dubai!
Sounds and looks perfect especially when you don’t want all the hustle and bustle. Love lit palm trees- they create a romantic feel right? Also having doors open as you enter is always a winner. Glad you had a good stay
