Let's face it, all of us pretty much work our hardest the whole week so we can take a relaxing staycation on the weekend. 

An affordable break at a fabulous hotel overlooking the beautiful Arabian Gulf goes a long way in rejuvenating and prepping us for the week ahead. 

Throw in amenities such as the Re:Charge gym, splash pool, vibrant restaurants - hosting boozy brunches with a resident band and DJs, and a buzzing lounge with pool and fussball tables, and you’ve got yourself a deal that's just waiting to be sealed.

Aloft Palm Jumeirah by Marriott International is all that and much more

1. It's one of the few hotels in Dubai that leads with innovation in both design and technology

Just how a modern-day hotel should be—it's tailored for residents and global travelers who are hyper-connected, and as the groups says, 'always on.' 

All the rooms have the brand’s signature offerings—an ultra-comfortable plush bed, walk-in shower, in-room entertainment such as a fast and free Wi-Fi and a 49-inch LCD TVs linked to a plug and play connectivity panel.  

But what will make the rooms completely unique is the SPG Keyless facility, which is the first mobile check-in system where you use your cell phones as room keys. Amazing, right?

2. The location of this property is a winner

It’s a leisure hotel located on the most sought after Palm Jumeirah with private beach access, so rest assured the beautiful seascape and the immaculate view of the Dubai skyline is given. 

And despite it being a contemporary-styled property, it also has that boutique hotel vibes that make you feel as if you're vacationing somewhere outside the UAE. Plus, it's affordable AS that means you can have your cake and eat it too. 

That, coupled with all the leisure activities the hotel is providing makes this place a go-to. 

Speaking of leisurely vibes..

3. It's a wonderful addition to Dubai's vibrant social scene

The hotel has six dining and social spaces, including an all day dining venue, two lounges where guests can kickback and enjoy some music over beverages and snacks, and it's signature bar which offers live acoustic performances by up-and-coming artists.There is also a 24/7 grab and go venue for people on the go. 

However, its most exciting addition – Luchador - a unique Mexican-themed cantina and cocktail lounge is hosting live music and eclectic events on its expansive rooftop with unique views of the Dubai skyline.

Sounds pretty perfect if you ask us.
