The Fairmont the Palm Gold Lounge is located on the 9th floor with panoramic views of the Marina and Jumeirah Beach. An exclusive lounge for those guests staying in a Gold room. The lounge has a reception area, living areas, bar area and business centre. In addition there are three outdoor balconies.


Breakfast is a more civil affair in here compared to the hustle and bustle of the Flow Kitchen main restaurant. A large selection of continental, bakery, hot items and juices are in addition to a comprehensive egg menu; including an excellent eggs benedict. A children’s area is also provided with pancakes, waffles, sweets and doughnuts.

During the day soft drinks and coffees are provided, as well as a traditional afternoon tea from 2-4pm. Afternoon tea consists of selection of cakes, cookies and arabic treats. A full range of Fairmont teas are served at the table, in addition to any soft drink or coffee.

At 5pm-7pm (hours may differ during Ramadan) the Golden Hour offers an excellent selection of canapés and complimentary alcoholic drinks. The staff were excellent and went beyond offering a huge selection of cocktails, regularly topping up drinks and providing flawless table service. This really was the highlight of our experience.

WIFI is free on the Gold floor and a strong signal was present throughout the room and public areas – including the pools. The speed was excellent at all times.
