Dubai winter sunshine


As 2015 draws to a close, there’s still time to escape to the blue skies, adventures and unbeatable experiences of a winter sunshine break in Dubai.


Enjoy a feast under the stars at a traditional Bedouin-style camp in the desert. Chill out at one our wonderful beach clubs, then take a dip in crystal clear waters or stroll along soft, white beaches.


For the ultimate indulgence, we have some of the best spas in the world and hot off the press, from 8th December, the prestigious House of Guerlain, will be running the spa at One&Only, The Palm.


So if you are looking for the winter sun holiday of a lifetime, make sure you choose Dubai.

Dubai’s newest hotels

Dubai has some of the finest hotels in the world. And never a city to stand still, the ribbon was cut on even more outstanding hotels in 2015.

In the first half of the year, three very special hotels welcomed their first guests: Manzil Downtown Dubai in January, Hyatt Regency Dubai Creek Heights in March, and in May, the InterContinental Dubai Marina.

In November, and with much excitement, the Palazzo Versace Dubai and The St. Regis Dubai opened their doors for the very first time.

Roll up for new adventures in 2016

As if LEGOLAND Dubai, LEGOLAND Water Park and Bollywood Parks Dubai weren’t enough, hold onto your hats, because there are two more incredible theme parks on their way for 2016:


Motiongate Dubai – a world where you can play the hero and relive your favourite movies. There are 5 zones and 27 immersive attractions to choose from – Ghostbusters to Kung Fu Panda and The Hunger Games to Hotel Transylvania.


IMG Worlds of Adventure – the world’s largest indoor theme park will feature four epic zones (Cartoon Network, MARVEL, IMG Boulevard and Lost Valley – Dinosaur Adventure) with adrenaline-pumping rides and other spine-tingling attractions.
