Andaz Dubai The Palm made its debut in 2019 as the first Andaz-branded hotel in Dubai and the second in the UAE.
The Andaz brand by Hyatt is known for its distinct designs that draw inspiration from the local surroundings and immerse guests in the artistic expression of the local culture.
I’ve had a few good experiences at Andaz properties recently, so I was quite curious about this Dubai location which opened just three years ago.
Andaz Dubai The Palm – Booking
I booked a one-night stay for 23,000 World of Hyatt points, which was an excellent value compared to the publicly available cash rates.
Andaz Dubai The Palm is a Category 5 property under World of Hyatt, and pricing varies between off-peak, peak, and regular dates.
My stay happened to be in November, which is considered one of the best months to visit the UAE as the temperatures are particularly pleasant during this time.
Due to visiting during the busy season, I encountered heightened cash prices, which were upwards of 2,000 AED ($743 CAD) for a one-night stay.
We value World of Hyatt points at 2 cents per point (CAD), so my redemption of 23,000 points was certainly worthwhile, as it netted me over 3 cents per point of value.
Keep in mind that if you’re paying with cash, you can take advantage of the additional perks that come with booking your stay through Hyatt Privé.
Even those who enjoy World of Hyatt status will still benefit beyond booking directly through the hotel, as you’ll enjoy extra perks such as a $100 (USD) property credit, a confirmed upgrade at the time of booking, and more, while paying the same price as the best available flexible rate.
