At this time of the year, travel and vacation FOMO is a regular occurrence. One quick check on Instagram and someone is off enjoying themselves in Mykonos, the Amalfi coast or Ibiza. Others are totally switching off in Canada, or the likes of the Maldives and Bali.
We all know what a staycation is like in Dubai, it's a tease because it's never long enough. But maybe, few little staycations this summer, as well as an actual hoilday, might give you the break you deserve.
We've written about Nikki Beach before, the club that is, which will be turning two years old soon, although it's closed for the summer. Well, next door, a hotel opened last year, the Nikki Beach Resort & Spa.
It's kind of like Bvglari Hotel Yacht Club, Jumeriah's Al Naseem or the Oberoi in Ajman, definitely in the top five most stylish and luxury contemporary hotels that have opened in the UAE in recent years.
