It's not always practical to travel for the long weekends, particularly as prices go up for flights, accommodation and it all can be a bit difficult.
So you may as well stay in Dubai, really - especially thanks to some magical summer deals.
There's plenty to do in the city, and DUKES Dubai has an excellent offer that will sort you out for the entire long weekend.
Not satisfied, with just a night's stay in a beautiful resort, DUKES Dubai has jam-packed fun into each staycation package.
There's so much included, we've had to list it all out for you.
A king-share staycay at DUKES Dubai on the Palm Jumeirah
Enjoy panoramic views of Dubai Marina, sprawling facilities including a Lazy River pool to chill in, a huge king bed to lounge in and all kinds of five-star access.
Free kids' club access
Kick back and relax while the kiddies go blow off some steam at the DUKES Dubai kids' club. You can kick back by the pool, or on the beach while they are fully supervised in a fun and safe environment.
Tickets to Dubai Parks
As if a hotel stay isn't enough! You'll get tickets for two people to ANY of the parks in Dubai Parks, so you can head out to MOTIONGATE, Bollywood Park, LEGOLAND or LEGOLAND water park and live it up!
Whether you prefer high-octane thrilling rides, jaw-dropping shows, or more relaxed exhibitions, there's something for everyone.
Enjoy a lavish spread for brekky at the Great British Restaurant (GBR as it's affectionately known) and then, savour Northern Indian delights for dinner at Khyber. The offer is good for two adults and two children.
And as if ALL OF THAT wasn't enough, you'll also get a late checkout so you can make the most of your days at DUKES Dubai. You can relax until 2pm, enjoying the resort facilities.
Staycation packages start from AED1,255 and are valid until September 9. Prices include municipality and service fee.
