When you think of luxurious hotels, show-stopping shopping centres and world-class cuisine, Dubai holidays will no doubt be one of the first things to spring into mind. This stylish and glamorous city has certainly made its mark with holidaymakers.
Located in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai offers the unique combination of a leading, bustling and world-class metropolis with vast expanses of desert and stunning beaches.
However, while it may be the playground of the rich and famous, don't let that put you off visiting. In light of its growing popularity on the tourism stage, there has been a burst of Dubai hotels that not only offer top-class service, but at prices to suit all budgets.
This is where booking your accommodation through Hayes & Jarvis can prove to be of assistance. Our experienced travel consultants will help you find just the hotel you are searching for, whether you want five-star luxury close to the beach or something right in the centre of all the action.
You can also tailor your getaway to your exact requirements - such as securing interconnecting rooms if you are travelling as a family, or adding extra days if you decide you have not seen enough of amazing Dubai.
What to do in Dubai
It can be difficult to know where to start when on holiday in Dubai, but one thing that should not be missed are the awe-inspiring shopping centres. You might want to save yourself for the famous duty-free stores at its airports, but you should definitely visit a designer mall to see for yourself the wealth that can be found here.
While not all are imposing and full of the biggest fashion houses, The Mall of the Emirates is a 223,000 sq m centre with 520 international brands, a 14-screen multiplex cinema, a five-star hotel and the Middle East's first indoor ski resort.
For a taste of traditional Dubai, make sure you head to one of its souks. Gold jewellery and spices will likely be at the top of your shopping list, although many markets have branched out to offer the latest electronic items.
Another sight to take in is the skyline of the emirate - with the so-called world's most luxurious hotel Burj Al Arab worth a glimpse. Every suite has rain showers and Jacuzzis - and you might decide to treat yourself to a night's stay! However, if your budget is slightly more constrained, the 321-m tall hotel is also majestic to take in against the expansive Middle Eastern sky.
Dubai is also a fantastic destination for family breaks, with its waterparks and beaches popular with kids and adults alike. For ten miles of white sand, head to Jumeirah Beach. It is lined with restaurants and cafes serving Arabic dishes such as hareis, which consists of tender lamb and slow-cooked wheat.
The list of things to see and do in Dubai is endless - so why not book a break to see for yourself what the metropolis has to offer?
