Dubai, a city of indulgence in all forms, is sure to satisfy your every whim, especially if you tick off these top 5 luxury experiences.
Indulge at Ossiano, Atlantis
Set amid a tranquil aquarium with 65,000 marine species swimming freely on the other side of the glass panel, Ossiano is the perfect location for an intimate dining experience. Head chef Grégoire Berger’s talent is the star of the show and his multi-course menu is undoubtedly a gastronomic experience that you will always remember.
Rejuvenate at Talise Ottoman Spa
Retreat into a world of opulence at the Talise Ottoman Spa in the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray Hotel. This peaceful haven features 42 treatment rooms, two thalassotherapy pools and a palatial Turkish Hamman. The treatment range is extensive, so spend a couple of days to de-stress and help your body achieve harmony and balance.
Cruise the waters around Dubai
The best views of Dubai’s skyline can be enjoyed from the sun deck of a luxury yacht or the world’s largest ‘dhow’ (a traditional Arabian boat). You can choose to hire a private yacht for a day, join a dinner cruise on a ‘dhow’, or party with VIPs onboard the privately-run Lotus Mega Yacht.
Cool down with a Black Diamond ice-cream
Famously dubbed ‘the world’s most expensive scoop of ice-cream’, Black Diamond is a perfected blend of premium ingredients and topped with 23-carat edible gold sprinkles. Visit Scoopi Café on Jumeirah Beach Road for this decadent dessert served with Versace cutlery, which you can keep.
Adventure on a desert safari
To immerse yourself in the Emirati culture, venture into Dubai’s surrounding desert. Enjoy a camel ride, see a falconry display, grab a board and experience the thrill of riding down a sand dune, savour a traditional meal under the stars while watching a belly-dancing show – the best part is you can customise your ‘dune bashing’ adventure to fit your needs.
