Hotel Review: Melia Desert Palm Dubai Resort Staycation

Dubai may be known for its modern architecture, towering skyscrapers, and smart technology, but there are quite a number of “green” spaces as well. One of these is Melia Desert Palm (BOOK HERE), a premium hotel and “urban oasis” set amidst a 160-acre natural expanse in the outskirts of the city.
