Dubai's ULTIMATE Staycation Options

Stay in some of Dubai's finest resorts and enjoy the most relaxing vacation you'll probably ever take


With the temperature (ever so slightly) cooling and Eid only days away your thoughts are probably drifting to the calm, peaceful vacation you're going to take.

First, you’ll decide on an amazing far flung resort. You’ll check Sky Scanner for flight prices, go in search of your passport, check the currency exchange rate, recheck Sky Scanner to see if the flight prices have changed only to then start freaking out a little because you can’t find your passport. Not as stress free as you hoped right?

So why go through the bother of travel when you could save on air fare and stay here? Use what you would have spent on flights and splash the cash in one of Dubai's most amazing resorts.

For around 6,000 DHS (sounds like a lot but bare with us for a sec) you’ll get extreme luxury, fantastic service, top class facilities and guaranteed sunshine. A driver can pick you up from your home and transport you to a world of luxury within the hour. Now that is the ultimate hassle free vacation.

Here are some of our favourite Dubai resorts...

One & Only - The Palm

Splash out on a room here for around 6,000 DHS for 2 nights. Your room is only footsteps from an exclusive beach and you can enjoy all the fantastic facilities the hotel has to offer.


Junior suite at the one and only


private pool - not a bad little spot now we must say

Or if you're feeling super flush this uber luxurious two bedroom private villa can be yours for 24,000 DHS per night. *gulp*


Unless you're one of madonnas kids this is probably beyond your budget


some hoover marks on the floor but who are we to judge

The Fairmont on the Palm

A pretty swanky room here will set you back around 1,500 DHS or you can grab their Presidential Suite for 6,800 DHS per night.

With that you’ll get a ridiculous view of the Dubai skyline that you’ll be latergramming for months, a dining area for 10, (if I were paying this much for a night I would definitely invite my friends to come see) a private butlers pantry and a rain forest shower - sounds like they've all the essentials ticked off anyway.

Zabeel Saray

Come here for the absolute ultimate in luxury. Indulging in the lavish surroundings of this hotel will cost you around 1,500 DHS per night for a deluxe sea view room.

Also on offer is the grand imperial suite. (This is for rockstars and royalty. Unless you're going to join me in some property creeping look away now).

Oh and if you're partial to the odd brunch you can head downstairs and enjoy it here...


not sure if the standard brunch hi-jinx are acceptable here though...
