    Glamour in the sand

    A hive of boundless energy, glamorous hotels and immaculately groomed beaches makes Dubai a great stopover en route to points further east. That said, your enjoyment will depend largely on choosing the hotel that best matches your style, knowing where to shop and getting into the best restaurants – and for that, you need insider knowledge.

    The white sand beaches merge into colossal sand dunes, the perfect environment for camel riding, dune buggying or dinner under the stars in a 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 and crystalline seas with superb diving.
