Review: Jood Palace Hotel, Dubai

Reviews : Accommodation

A sophisticated hotel with a suitable Arabian feel awaits at the JOOD Palace Hotel in Dubai. With all the services that you would expect at a five-star hotel and noticeably memorable service, this hotel stands out from the crowd in Dubai.


The JOOD Palace Hotel is located in the heart of Deira’s commercial and business district, just 15 minutes from Dubai International Airport. You are well located to explore Dubai as the metro station is literally a 5-minute walk away. Dubai itself is very accessible; direct flights from London take less than 7 hours, with many airports flying the route directly, including British Airways, Emirates, and Virgin Atlantic.

Style & Character

The hotel feels classically Arabian; it is contemporary and stylish, but it stands out from more generic offerings by really reminding its guests where they are in the world.

Service & Facilities

Service is vitally important here, and it is here that the hotel really differentiates itself; gracious, helpful, and warm. The concierge team are multi-lingual and are dedicated and driven to make sure your stay is as near to perfection as is possible. As facilities go, the beautiful rooftop swimming pool is probably the highlight, there is a Jacuzzi and a children’s pool too and plenty of space to laze about soaking up the sunshine. The large fitness center is well-equipped, and there’s also a steam room, sauna. JOOD Spa promises a journey of ultimate rejuvenation infused by ancient wisdom and philosophies, which sounds like exactly what I need when on holiday! There are 6 luxurious treatment rooms and an experienced team of therapists. The conference and event here are good too, from the tent-shaped ballroom to a choice of intimate meeting rooms.


There are 147 Deluxe, Premium, and Club rooms, 10 Ambassador Suites, Two Royal Suites, and 90 fully-furnished Deluxe Serviced Residences. What most stands out most with the accommodation is how spacious all the rooms are, no matter what room type. They are all tastefully designed with plush carpets and elegant décor.
