Hot is something Dubai may be for much – if not all – of the year. But when it comes to seriously ‘in’ holiday choices then this place is definitely ‘cool’. Why? Well, not only is it quick and easy to get too – it also has a nigh-perfect combination of sun, sand, sport and shopping. Soaring resort hotels have become world icons offering some of the highest standards you’ll find anywhere. And they’re all underpinned by impeccable service standards that blend traditional Arab hospitality with the latest hi-tech comforts of the western world.And within easy reach of the blue seas and golden beaches (including over 70 miles of artificial island beachfront currently coming on stream) of Dubai’s Gulf shore are rugged mountain and desert landscapes where you can watch camel races and overnight in a Bedouin tent. Our view? Beat that, Bognor!

Indulge yourself with an All Inclusive experience

All-inclusive holidays to Dubai are relatively new to the region, but are a particular favourite to those who wish to be in control of their holiday budget.
The more popular all-inclusive hotels in Dubai are the JA Jebel Ali Beach Hotel and JA Palm Tree Court. Guest here can enjoy the benefits of all inclusive dine around option plus complimentary watersports which includes windsurfing, dinghy sailing, kayaking, also included is tennis, squash, badminton, table tennis, beach volleyball, gymnasium and use of the aqua gym.

Splash out on afternoon tea at the spectacular 829.8m tall Burj Al Arab - a real highlight of any luxury Dubai holiday - and do not miss the thrill of a dune dinner safari excursion where you will enjoy sunset over the desert, camel rides, shisha pipes and a campfire barbecue.

Dubai Adventure

How about a little 4x4 ‘dune-bashing’ or ‘wadi-bashing’ (a wadi is a dry river bed) in the desert? – Real adrenaline-triggers, these. Organised desert safaris are also available. Try some sand-skiing over gigantic dunes on a snowboard. Or snow-skiing on the world’s largest indoor snow park, covered year-round with manufactured snow. Dubai is the only place you can ski on water, sand and snow in the same day! Horse-riding is also well catered for - and there’s just about every kind of watersport here as well.

Nightlife & Party with Locals

Many top bars are in the main hotels. Livelier and less expensive are those dotted around town, including the long-popular Irish Village and newer arrivals Carter’s, Wafi Centre and The Pyramids. More upscale is the minimalist Ginseng. The elegant Sho Cho at the Dubai Marina Resort is a fashionable bar-cum-restaurant. A popular nightclub is Planetarium at Planet Hollywood. Scream at the Ramada Hotel is a warehouse-style venue with techno-music.

Gourmet Cuisine & Dining Out

Gastronomy has to be part of the perfect luxury holiday to Dubai that is why there are more restaurants of quality or character – or both – than we have space to name! Gastronomic, trendy, business and budget restaurants. Chinese and Italian. Arabian and Irish. Indian and Swedish. You name it, Dubai has it. Dubai offers a vast choice of awe-inspiring and dazzling locations. Whatever, or wherever you choose to eat, the food, service and ambience is always a product of passion, care and imagination. By the way, while many hotel restaurants serve alcohol, a number of city venues are not licensed.

World''s Best Scuba Dive Sites

Dubai’s protected Gulf waters mean that May to October is so warm that no wetsuits are needed. 3 mm suits are comfortable for the rest of the year. Many submerged wrecks attract startling arrays of vivid tropical fish. Dive sites are all wreck diving. Depths range from 10 to 80 metres and the wrecks have formed artificial reefs with a rich collection of marine life.

World Class Golf Courses

Dubai’s major courses cater for all handicaps and foibles! They include the magnificent Al Badia 18-hole championship course beside Dubai Creek; the Desert Course at Arabian Ranches; The Dubai Creek and Yacht Club, a national monument and visitors’ favourite; the Emirates Golf Club’s flagship Majlis par 72 course; the Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa, with a 9-hole resort course; the Nad Al Sheba Club, boasting the Middle East’s only fully-floodlit 18 hole championship course; and the spectacular Montgomerie, covering more than 200 acres. As well as home to some of the world’s finest golf courses, Dubai is also home to the Dubai Desert Classic where some of the world’s best golfing champions compete.

Family Holidays to Dubai

Children will find lots to enjoy here and are well-looked after at resort hotels, with safe bathing and a variety of activities. They won’t want to leave Dubai’s amazing Wild Wadi Water Park. Some hotels and resorts offer babysitting services ensuring a fun Dubai holiday experience for the entire family. Dubai is the perfect family holiday destination.
