About Desert Palm
Set amidst green fields and palm trees, PER AQUUM Desert Palm offers sensational accommodation - in terms of design, it is Arabia touched with the avant-garde.
The sister property to Huvafen Fushi in the Maldives, Desert Palm has 38 'naturally modern' guest suites and pool villas, each showcasing its own distinctive design while embodying the simplicity and elegance of the estate's verdant surrounding. Offering total privacy, every room exudes an undeniable elegance and grace, where simple, yet distinctive architecture is counterpointed by high tech luxuries and designer amenities.
Facilities and activities include horse riding, polo matches, cookery classes, wine tasting, rare bird watching, tennis, squash and many more. Polo games and riding lessons are held from October to April subject to weather conditions and availability.
This is a great property for couples as it is not geared towards children particularly.
