Hospitality is a central feature of Arabian life and at The Palace of The Royal Mirage corporate and incentive groups are no exception.
Groups of up to 400 can use the Grand Ballroom, which pays tribute to Arabic taste and design while pleasing the Western eye; giant bronze chandeliers warm the immense coffered ceilings, the dŽcor is simple but stylish and the room can be sub-divided into three or used in tandem with a adjacent suite of smaller meeting and conference rooms. The Ballroom has its own entrance off the outer courtyard.
Incentive programmes can include themed dinners - with costumes provided by the hotel and local specialties such as spit-roast spiced lamb on the menu - beach barbecues or dhow cruises, all against the lovely backdrop of the Arabian Gulf and the elegant surroundings of The Palace at the Royal Mirage.
From December 15 2002, new sister property The Arabian Court will feature facilities tailor-made for incentive programmes and other large groups.
At the same time, the new La Residence and Spa will have both the Givenchy Spa, offering classic European treatments, and the Oriental Hammam with a whole range of steam facilities and massages which can fit perfectly into either Western or Eastern-themed packages.
