Hole up in a room with a ski view

Check in to a ski chalet for the weekend minus the airport hassle at Kempinski. We recommend the duplex chalet (from Dhs3,600 per night), where you can sit back in the bath – slap bang in the middle of your bedroom – and watch skiers hurl themselves down Ski Dubai’s smaller runs, or simply turn your phone off and forget what day and time it is thanks to the total lack of natural light.
Ski chalets with Ski Dubai view from Dhs1,600 to Dhs28,000 for three-bedroom grand ski chalets (price per room, per night) Kempinski Mall of the Emirates, Barsha (04 341 000).
