Meliá Desert Palm, Desert Palm Polo Club, Dubai

Juxtaposition is what makes this retreat. The greener-than-green pristine fields of Dubai’s premier polo estate contrast spectacularly with the arid Arabian landscape – and the result is almost other-worldly.

Meliá ​Desert Palm embodies age-old charm in a completely avant-garde way – sleek, sensual architectural lines and tender palettes of browns with crimson flourishes.

Accommodation consists of 38 ‘naturally-modern’ guest suites and pool villas, each individually designed, with deliriously-high standards of mod cons, and yet each almost effortlessly chic.

As for the polo, no stone is left unturned (four championship polo fields, stables and a riding school) but for those horse-shy, there’s a stunning array of non-equine facilities to bide your time. The infinity pool is perfection, ditto the dining, whilst the six suites at the LIME Spa offer no end of indulgences.
