The amenities at Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah include: Palm Avenue, an oasis in the heart of the hotel's gardens; Serafina, an authentic Venetian offering; and Peacock Alley, the centerpiece of the hotel that is named after the high-society promenade lounge which connected the original Waldorf and Astoria hotels in New York. Also drawing on the Waldorf Astoria heritage is the addition of a lobby clock.

For dining, the property has a selection of six restaurants and bars, including a jewel in the culinary crown, the New York inspired Social by Heinz Beck; an eatery by European chef and author Heinz Beck; Lao, boasting south-east Asian contemporary dining; and Mezzerie, locally-inspired arabesque dining.

For events, Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah has eight naturally-lit meeting spaces and a 600-capacity, multi-purpose ballroom.
