Multi-bedroom villa(s) in Dubai ?

Hi guys,

I am planning a trip to the middle east in February 2020 with the extended family. At the end of it I wanna chill in Dubai for a few nights before heading home. As we will be likely flying EK, this should be easy enough to organise. We will be travelling as a group of 13, 8 adults, and 5 kids so would need 4 bedrooms (or 2+2 bedrooms or 3+1 bedrooms etc)

Budget is flexible and happy to stretch for something special. We don't often/ever travel as a big family like this, so want to make it memorable.

I'm not sure if any of the main contenders in Dubai have villas as large as a 4-bedder so the current front runner is somewhere I've always wanted to stay, the O&O Palm, taking two out of the four of their 2-bedroom beachfront villas, which look amazing.

Bulgari's bulgari villa looks as equally as amazing though this looks to just have 3 bedrooms from the floorplans ? Though they say an adjacent villa could be combined ?

Any other hotels I should be considering here ?

There are some truly crazy and ridiculously over the top air bnbs that I have come across, but have decided that I would prefer a hotel.

Would appreciate any comments, thoughts or suggestions.

Cheers

Yes - I visited these (though not specifically the 3-bedroom). Shoot me a message and I'd be happy to send over pics of my visit of the villas/resort etc.
Didn't get a chance to visit O&O unfortunately.

Questions:
- Are you needing to stay in main Dubai?
- Does it need to be beachfront?
- Suites vs villas? Mandarin Oriental 2 x 2 Bedroom? Four Seasons Jumeirah too?

If it doesn't need to be one or the other, or both, it does open up more opportunities:
- Oberoi Ajman (3 bedroom or 2+2?)
- Jumeirah has some villas near Madinat Jumeirah

Thanks for sharing those other options.

Re villas v suites, I feel like villas would just be more spacious and might work better for a big group like this. Pool/beachfront not a must, but certainly would be nice.

Checked out MO, which looks amazing but overpriced. I didn't actually realised that this has even opened yet.

Oberoi is sorta out of Dubai which may not be a problem.

Does FS JB have multi bedroom suites ? I didn't see any on their website.

Thanks for the suggestion !

I stayed at Zabeel Saray about 5 years ago and it was very solid, but not sure how the hard product would hold up now compared to oberoi/MO/bulgari.
That said, it would be an awesome choice for the kids due to the pools and activities available.

So far bulgari have knocked me back saying they have a 7 night min stay on the bulgari villa, and O&O have done similar, as they apparently have a 5 night min stay on their 2 bedroom villas.
Zabeel Saray would cost me 27k AED for 2 nights for their 5 bedroom villa and Oberoi similar two villas, a 3 bedder and a 2 bedder.

MO is priced far higher, 15k AED per 2-bedroom villa per night, still trying to decide whether it would be "worth it".
Has anyone stayed at the MO yet ?

I feel like we will end up at Zabeel Saray because of the kids factor which is a shame as I like to try new places.
