UAE residents are well looked after by Address Hotels + Resorts. Staying in this Downtown property, you’ll get quite the goodie bag. Two complimentary tickets to Reel Cinemas and Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo should be enough to keep your staycation exciting. You also get 20 percent off any of all Emaar Hospitality Group restaurants, which is an extra bonus. From Dhs899. Until September 30.
It might just be the ultimate UAE staycation resort. A true holiday environment that’s cut off from the real world (an underwater kingdom theme will do that for a hotel) but close enough that you don’t need to bother with all the faff of actually leaving the country, Atlantis The Palm throws in plenty of freebies, too. Rooms are large enough for two adults and two kids, and come with free access to Aquaventure waterpark and The Lost Chambers Aquarium. Pay with a MasterCard and get 40 percent off the best available room rate, a further 25 percent off Atlantis’ restaurants, plus ShuiQi Spa deals, too. From Dhs1,054 per room, per night. Until October 15.
Staying a little longer is well worth your while at this plush Palm Jumeirah hotel. Not only will you benefit from more time to enjoy one of 293 luxurious rooms, you can also save a few precious dirhams. Stay for three nights or more and you’ll save 15 percent on the cost of your room and get daily breakfast thrown in, too. From Dhs656 per room, per night. Ongoing.
The desert tends to be a few degrees cooler than the city, so head out to this luxury hotel. From now until the end of September, every day comes with Dhs350 of credit to spend at the spa, restaurants or swim-up bar. It’s a great time to visit one of the nation’s most luxurious desert hotels. From Dhs850 per room, per night. Until September 30.
This Sheikh Zayed Road property is close enough to Dubai’s most popular tourist spots and therefore a great hub from which to explore the city. Though surrounded by skyscrapers, it still manages to feel like the “urban oasis” it markets itself as. It has good relaxation facilities, and with its long-running summer deal (right up until Sunday October 8) offering 20 percent off the best available rate, it’s a good choice for city dwellers wanting a familiar break. From Dhs464 per room, per night. Until October 8.
Glam restaurant and party spot, Sass Café has launched a new ladies’ night. Get a three-course set menu for Dhs250, with unlimited free beverages from 8pm until 11.30pm. From here on in, the tables are swept away to make room for a dancefloor that keeps things going into the small hours. Free. Tue 8pm-11.30pm. Ongoing.
