Dubai has fast established itself as one of the most world’s most appealing tourist destinations. For the aspiring gentleman, Dubai has it all – endless 5 star of hotels, exquisite eateries and attractions capable of putting you on a pedestal within your network.
With the rightful title of the “Most Western Part of the Middle East”, we’ve broken down exactly how you can holiday in style in the region:
1. Choose Your Resort Wisely
Clearly there is a huge range of luxury resorts in Dubai, so choosing your accommodation can be a challenging (yet exciting) pastime. The selection of your hotel can have a significant impact on the overall experience, particularly when you consider that some offer complimentary features and benefits that can add extra value beyond belief.
If you book in at Dubai’s Jumeirah Beach Hotel, for example, residents are currently rewarded with complimentary access to Wild Wadi Waterpark for the duration of their stay. There is also the option to enjoy private yacht charter for those who are so inclined, so booking in at this resort can transform a good experience into a truly memorable one!
2. Get a Sense of the Real Dubai by Visiting the Desert
While Dubai is now renowned as a bustling metropolis and big city location, its heritage remains rooted in rural creeks and dry desert land. No true holiday to Dubai is complete without hiking out to explore the sands on which the city was built, so you should definitely take the time to visit the desert and enjoy the views, wildlife and serenity that it has to offer.
For those with a desire to travel in style, you can book an organised tour and traverse the desert land in a superb Land Rover. This will also allow you to get up close and personal with eye-catching species such as the Oryx and Gazelles, while some branded tours even throw in the added feature of a brief camel ride in the open air.
3. Enjoy an Aperitif in the Humid Dubai Air
As you will probably know, the sale of alcohol in Dubai is restricted to licensed hotels and restaurants. This does not mean that you cannot enjoy an evening aperitif in Dubai, however, although you will need to be organised to ensure that you are able to beat the queues.
Perhaps the coolest and most stylish locale for a cocktail is the intriguingly-named Atmosphere, which sits on level 122 of Burj Khalifa. A mahogany-clad restaurant and lounge that sits 442 metres above sea level, it offers stunning, 360-degree city views and access to a diverse drinks menu.
This location makes for an exceptional night out, although you will need to book in advance if you are to secure a place during your stay. Without this, you will struggle to gain entry as long queues are common and a high number of spaces are usually booked up well ahead of time.
