We explore the thermodynamics of a simple 5D Einstein-dilaton gravity model with a massive scalar field, with asymptotically AdS behavior in the UV. The holographic renormalization is addressed in details, and analytical results are obtained at high temperatures. We study the power corrections predicted by the model, and compare with lattice data in the deconfined phase of gluodynamics. Finally, it is discussed the role played by the conformal anomaly for integer values of the dimension of the condensate dual to the scalar field.
