Our top picks close to this hotel

For romance

For a cool date, Ski Dubai does exactly what is says on the tin.  While it is sweltering outside, you can experience 1,300 feet of skiing in the middle of the desert. Quirky but serious fun!

For families

The Burj Khalifa is a shard like structure and currently the tallest building on the planet.  This impressive needle shaped wonder is impossible to miss and a viewing platform from the 134th floor is very, very popular.  It is best to book in advance though, as a trip up this futuristic building is always busy.

For culture

The Old Gold Souk is a haggler’s paradise, but you must be sure to ask your taxi or driver to take you specifically to the Old Souk.  Walking around, you will be amazed by the displays of gold.  For sheer size and scale, you will probably never see anything like this anywhere else in the world. If you are window shopping enjoy, but if you are buying it is serious haggling time.  Be firm and know your limits……

For shopping

Of course, Dubai is famous for shopping and shopping malls but The Dubai Mall is the crème de la crème for all shop-a-holics. It has to be seen to be believed, and to believe it you must experience it. This place is simply huge and if you cannot find what you are looking for here, then you may as well just give up looking.  If you stay until the early evening, you can rest your weary feet, soak up the atmosphere and take in a Las Vegas style light show at the same time.

For eating out

Zuma is vibrant Japanese restaurant and bar with an open kitchen that really makes for a memorable night out with great food cooked before your very eyes.   Their speciality Black Cod has acquired an almost legendary status and to experience all the best that this popular restaurant has to offer, booking is essential.

For nightlife

In Dubai, everything is bigger and better than everywhere else.  This is evident at the XL Beach Club 0 late night revellers can recline on low white sofas or book spots in private cabanas with private spa pools, bathrooms and lounges. For hunks in trunks and bikini clad beauties, then this is the place to head to.
