Burj Al Arab 2

Whether you’re attracted to the glamorous skyscrapers, championship golf courses in the desert or indoor ski slopes found, the city is an array of luxury and wealth where there is bound to be something lavish enough to entice you to pay a visit.

You are spoilt for choice when choosing your hotel.  We recommend the Burj Al Arab, constantly voted the worlds most luxury hotel, boasting stunning design and décor, its well known for its extravagant service such as optional chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce.  The sky view bar is located 200 meters above sea level and is perfect for sipping cocktails and admiring the breath taking views across the city.

Aquarium Dubai Mall

Shoppers will jump for joy visiting Dubai’s’ supermalls lined with luxury and designer stores.  Upon visiting the Dubai Mall, after your feet are tired browsing the numerous luxury stores such as Louis Vuitton, Hermes and Gucci, the mall offers the world’s largest suspended aquarium, home to 40,000 fish and featuring a walk through tunnel.  If this isn’t enough there’s also an Olympic size ice rink and the worlds largest indoor Gold Souk.

Dubai Marina 3

Dubai boasts the largest marina of its kind ever built and is completely man-made. A whole day can be taken admiring super yachts and wandering along the 7km waterfront boardwalk discovering the entertainment, dining and shopping options that offer something to meet every discerning travellers needs.

Exotic super cars are common sights on the streets of Dubai so keep your eyes peeled for those passing Lamborghinis.  If you’re planning your trip soon be sure to check out the Dubai Grand Parade starting on the 8th November, the UAE’s largest and most prestigious convey of super, luxury, modified and classic cars and bikes, even the police leading the parade will be showing off their Lamborghini, Ferrari and Bentley!

You’re probably now wondering when you’ll get a chance to nip over to experience it for yourself; November to March is the best time as the temperatures moderate, outside of these times it can get very hot!

Dubai is a must-see destination for every luxury traveller; there is nowhere else in the world comparable.
