Last weekend, we explored the new hotel that is in the perfect place to get to every part of Dubai and the name of the hotel is Avani Palm View Dubai Hotel & Suites.
We all know Dubai was once a small fishing village in the Arabian Gulf, but has now grown to be one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world and a travel destination for millions of people.
With the finding of oil in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai has fast become a place where you can find world breaking structures on every street from: Burj Khalifa – World’s Tallest Building, World’s Largest Wheel to the World’s Largest Mall – Literally find new places every week.
With Dubai relying on tourism as the main income, it is the place to witness the best innovation and creativity around the world.
And with an unparalleled coastline, beautiful desert and incredible skylines, memories are just waiting to be made.

Our stay at the Avani Palm View Dubai Hotel
We were invited to visit and enjoy the hotel’s brand new ‘Superior 2-bedroom Sea View Suite’ that occupies the seventh floor of the 48 storey building.
We both drove and the hotel staff made us extremely welcome from the get-go. We parked our cars at the valet desk and they looked after them for our stay.
The entrance is on the 1st floor and what a grand entrance it is, with views over Dubai as you speak to the staff.
From then, it was only a short walk and lift journey to get to our room and BANG … What a spectacular room it was!
We have stayed in quite a few hotels around the world and this has to be up there with the very best, due to the decoration, layout and views over the balcony.
Our Two-bedroom Sea View Suite
We stayed in literally one of the best suites that we could have dreamed of.
As soon as we stepped foot in to the suite, Anya was already scrolling down her phone looking for a chance to rent it for the whole year.
The rates were very good and has meant that she has mentioned it ever since.
Local area to the hotel
The Avani Palm View Dubai Hotel & Suites is based at the bottom of Palm Jumeirah, before you enter the stem of the Palm, which makes it the perfect spot to get to the Palm, Dubai Marina or Downtown.
This is prime position for a short walk to Dubai Marina and Jumeirah Beach, we walked to Dubai Marina and it was beautiful during sunset hours because of the sun bouncing off of each skyscraper.
The short walk allows you to be amongst some of the world’s best restaurants, hotels, gyms, beaches and malls.
Prices start from 410 AED for 1 bedroom for 2 adults and 1 child (including breakfast). But the Avani also has one, two and three bedroom apartments as well as penthouses that are due to be completed by April 2021.
With the hotel being very new (Early 2021), it is in the best condition and has some of the very best facilities that a hotel can provide, such as:
- 264 rooms
- AvaniFit Gym – equipped with TechnoGym
- Sauna and changing rooms
- Skyline outdoor infinity pool and dual level pools
The bright, all day Seven Seeds restaurant is situated to the rear of the reception.
We made a beeline for it as soon as we arrived to get lunch. As we had the full board package, we had breakfast, lunch and dinner at was every foodie’s dream.
We were able to sample a lot of the delicious food that was on offer.
The Pantry is a designer deli that caters for the food on the go, a great spot to grab a coffee and a slither of cake for those couple of hours working on your laptop.
If you are enjoying the sun and lounging around the pool, then the Aqua menu is for you.
It is a bit more limited from the Seven Seeds restaurant menu but it still brings you the very best in pool-side snacks, whilst enjoying a cool and refreshing drink.
Another great asset that the hotel has is their in-room dining. You are able to order in when you don’t feel like leaving the comfort of your room, a huge positive these days and with the rooms being so AWESOME!
View from our room
With it being situated at the bottom of the Palm, before you enter it’s stem, you have great views of Palm Jumeirah and the NEW Dubai Harbour.
That is if you choose a sea facing room alongside one of the best sunset spots in the world.
If facing the opposite side, you will be facing Sheikh Zayed Road at a distance and the beautiful Emirates Golf Course will take up the majority of the view.
An incredible daily sunrise will have you scrambling for those early morning wake up calls.
