Cosmopolitan cities, skyscraper hotels, superb diving, the place to be seen, metropolitan beaches
Glitz-in-the-sand… the world’s biggest construction site… a beach holiday in Dubai isn’t everyone’s idea of a break but we think this hive of go-go-go energy, sybaritic hotels and immaculately groomed beaches makes a great stopover en route to points further East. That said, your enjoyment will depend hugely on choosing the hotel that best matches your style, knowing where to shop and getting into the best restaurants – and for that you need our kind of insider knowledge.
The white sand beaches merge into colossal sand dunes, the perfect environment for camel riding, dune bashing or dinner under the stars in our private camp. For those in search of a cultural experience we can take you away from the shopping malls and beaches into the depths of the country to discover local mud house villages.
It’s worth remembering that, despite grabbing all the headlines, Dubai is just one of the seven Emirates that make up the UAE and, beyond the metropolitan beaches there are silent deserts, stark mountains, green oases, crystalline sea with superb diving and a good helping of traditional Arabian values…so long as you know where to look.
All itineraries are individually designed, but as a guide, we can arrange a seven day holiday in Dubai (not including flights) from £2300 per person.
