The city where too much is never enough, Dubai is unashamedly glitzy, loud, bright and one of the most visited places in the world… and rightly so! Topping many lists for luxury holiday destinations, it’s a luxe-traveller’s mecca and business hub infused into one. Exciting, electric, ambitious and utterly thriving, we’ll never run out of adjectives to describe this cosmopolitan city… so why not see what all the fuss is about for yourself?
There are two distinct hotel areas, Jumeirah Beach and the nicknamed ‘eighth wonder of the world’ Palm Jumeirah, a series of manmade archipelagos in the shape of a palm tree. Expect lavish guestrooms, pristine private beaches and every amenity you could wish for from personal butler service and a dedicated concierge to secluded plunge pools and extensive pillow menus. Attracting some of the most renowned hotel chains including Jumeirah, One&Only, The Four Seasons and The Ritz-Carlton, if they’ve invested in paradise, then so should you.
Foodies rejoice, if there was a food capital of the world, Dubai would definitely be a contender. Home to a plethora of fine-dining experiences, high-end restaurant chains and celebrity chef establishments, good food in an even better setting is definitely top of the menu everywhere you turn.
From shopping to skyscrapers, there’s a host to see and do while in Dubai. Families would be a fool to miss Atlantis, The Palm and it’s commanding entertainment facilities which dominate the crescent of Palm Jumeirah. Aquaventure Waterpark, Dolphin Bay, Sea Lion Point and The Lost Chambers Aquarium call this resort home and will provide days (not hours) of thrills.
Shopaholics will find refuge in the Dubai Mall complete with dancing fountains outside, and if you’ve made the trip to Downtown Dubai, you simply have to stop by Burj Khalifa, Dubai’s number one must see and the world’s tallest skyscraper.
A golfers’ paradise takes the form of the Emirates Golf Club, located just off Jumeirah Beach with the JBR Walk, a thriving strip of boutiques, restaurants and cafés mere minutes away.
