Our Experts On… One&Only Resorts



Inspiring Travel Company | 4 Sep, 2018

While each and every destination and hotel we offer in our portfolio has met our exacting standards, One&Only’s luxurious collection of resorts is certainly among our favourites, due to their signature style and seamless service.

Thanks to our wonderful and long-standing relationship with One&Only, many of our team has had the opportunity to visit their luxury resorts around the world, equipping them with first-hand experience, expert recommendations and invaluable insight for our clients.

Here’s what they had to share…

One&Only Reethi Rah, Maldives

“The iconic One&Only Reethi Rah resort is out of this world. Dining was an absolute delight here, with Tapasake my personal favourite; think delicate Japanese dishes with incredible views of the ocean. We travelled as a couple and found it to be super-romantic, but I wouldn’t hesitate to go back with my children.” Jennifer Atkinson, Chairman

One&Only Royal Mirage and One&Only The Palm, Dubai

“One&Only Royal Mirage has to be one of the top addresses in Dubai. This stylish resort reflects old Arabia but also offers world-class facilities split over three different hotels: The Palace, Arabian Court and The Residence, the latter being the flagship choice but all of which are superlative. The restaurants are amazing, the grounds immaculate and the property sits on the impressive Jumeirah Beach… Royal Mirage should certainly be on your bucket list.” Emma Fountain, Travel Specialist

“My ‘wow’ One&Only moment was at the Royal Mirage, Arabian Court, dining in a gazebo on the beach with the most amazing backdrop and views out to the Palm. The food, wine, service and company were exceptional!” Kelsey Froggett, Travel Specialist

“I stayed at the One&Only Royal Mirage on my honeymoon. The resort was amazing and located right on the beach, and we were amazed to find that we could take the exclusive boat from the boardwalk next to our hotel to One&Only The Palm. Here, we enjoyed dinner at the Palm – 101 Dining Lounge & Bar. It boasts sweeping panoramic views of the New Dubai skyline and the food was amazing; we sat, drank wine and enjoyed the music and views for hours before jumping back onto the boat and taking the short luxurious ride back to our hotel.” Emma Nze, Marketing Executive

Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, Australia

“I was lucky enough to visit the incredible One&Only Wolgan Valley resort around three years ago. While the entire trip “wowed” me from start to end, the most memorable experience was seeing an albino wombat on a wildlife tour – very unusual! The resort is breathtaking and accommodation comprises individual villas offering private swimming pools. I visited in autumn, so spotting local wildlife while snuggled around the fire was amazing!” Claire Hancock, Sales Manager

One&Only Cape Town, South Africa

“I remember dining at Reuben’s Restaurant at One&Only Cape Town, a truly impressive hotel right on the edge of the bustling V&A Waterfront. The menu was mind blowing and featured ostrich, crocodile and springbok - to name just a few!” Sharon Williams, Travel Specialist

One&Only Palmilla, Mexico

“Long frequented by celebrities and discerning travellers, One&Only Palmilla offers the ultimate in five-star luxury, featuring an impressive ESPA spa, 27-hole Jack Nicklaus golf course, great children’s facilities and an enviable location in Los Cabos. An incredible dining destination, the resort houses four restaurants, one of which – SEARED – has been envisioned by Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten.” Helen Tabois, Senior Product & Marketing Manager

One&Only Le Saint Géran, Mauritius

“The resort is ideal for families with its fantastic KidsOnly programme, but equally perfect for couples looking for an exclusive Mauritian hideaway. I loved the silver sand beach and the fact it’s set on a private peninsula. It has everything from excellent scuba diving to kiteboarding, to the most amazing spa and sumptuous cuisine. One&Only Le Saint Geran is a firm favourite with many repeat guests and I can see why!” Holly Westwood, Luxury Sales Manager
