Live the most luxurious experiences in Dubai
Dubai is a playground of luxury like no other. We present you with a list of things to do that will surely impress you.
Get behind the wheel of a supercar
In a city where even the police patrol in Lamborghini, high-performance vehicles are a must-have accessory for members of high society. To fit in, all you have to do is rent a supercar from companies like Lamborghini rental Dubai, which stock top models from Ferrari, Maserati, and more. Gaze at the skyscrapers from your rear view mirror as you drive down Dubai’s famous Sheikh Zayed Road or tour Jumeirah Beach Residences and Downtown Dubai.
Go sailing on a private boat
One of the expat community’s favorite weekend activities (after brunch, of course) is cruising the sparkling waters of the Persian Gulf by boat. Take it to the next level by booking a luxury yacht for a personalized tour of the city’s coastline for you and your friends. Xclusive Yachts offers a full crew and an open itinerary tailored to the wishes of the visitors. You read that right, you can choose to spend a luxurious day relaxing in the sun with incredible views of the Dubai skyline from the high seas or enjoy a very special cruise for two that sets sail at sunset.
Become a VIP buyer
Join the “Preferred Customer” brotherhood offered only to the most privileged customers of The Dubai Mall. Benefits include exclusive access to the mall lounge, valet parking, invitations to special events and advance payments, and the opportunity to be transported around the mall in style. So you can become an exclusive member if you spend more than AED 100,000 at the mall. Once there, be sure to visit Level Shoes, a comprehensive district dedicated to fulfilling all your footwear shopping desires. Inside you will also find a shoe rack that offers a customization service for men’s formal shoes, as well as a selection of classic footwear that can be designed by hand according to the whims of the wearer.
Book a helicopter ride
In a hurry and don’t want to go on the road? It is no coincidence that five-star hotels in Dubai have their own helipad. Hotels like the Burj Al Arab offer a helicopter service for guests who want to spend a few days living big or those who simply want to go out for afternoon tea. Talk to the concierge to book your transportation through the air. You can also try HeliDubai, a VIP service that is at your disposal to take you to the hotel, to the golf course or even to the shopping center.
Stay in a design suite
The stunning Bulgari Resort Dubai features a selection of premium suites and villas, each decorated with luxurious designs and first-class amenities . The 158,000-square-meter complex is the Italian brand’s first and only property in the Middle East and a stylish addition to the Dubai coastline. Adapted to the seahorse curves of Jumeirah Bay Island, this is one of the most exclusive hotels in the city. The complex has five culinary spaces, private beach and pools, a stellar spa and a one-of-a-kind yacht club that will exceed all expectations.
See a game of polo in Dubai
Known as the sport of kings, polo is a popular pastime in Dubai, where the equestrian roots of the Arab world are still present among royalty and the aristocracy. During the polo season, between October and April, several prestigious matches are held at the Desert Palm Resort, attended by an audience dressed in long shots to enjoy the sun and the company. Get your name on the VIP list by checking what’s happening on the Dubai Calendar during your stay. Visitors can also get on the saddle and perfect their shots at the complex’s polo club.
Afternoon tea with a different twist
Discover the Dubai version of the quintessential British pastime with afternoon tea experiences. Savor your tea on the hotel’s lovely outdoor terrace or, in warmer months, enjoy the incredible atmosphere within this picturesque resort. For something sweet, stop by the hotel’s famous authentic Turkish ice cream stand.
Golf on a championship course
Practice your swing on the Majlis Golf Course at Emirates Golf Club. Follow in the footsteps of golf greats like Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Ernie Els. One of the most difficult and rewarding rounds of the European Tour. No self-respecting golfer can miss the winding fairways of this 18-hole course. Designed by Karl Litten, the Middle East’s first grass pitch also hosts the annual Omega Dubai Desert Classic championship.
Get on the story
