Dubai, the largest by population and second largest by area of the seven United Arab Emirates, is an astonishing destination for a family holiday that never fails to deliver.

Family Holidays in DubaiBoasting year-round sunshine, Dubai is an exciting hotspot for families and celebrities alike where you can be transported to magnificent palaces and bury yourself in Dubai’s rich history whilst embracing the remarkable modern architecture.  Trek through the sand dunes and live like a Bedouin – or live like a king in one of the luxurious highly-rated hotels, many with their own spas.

A holiday in Dubai may be either in Jumeirah Beach, close to Dubai City, or the port of Jebel Ali, where we recommend the Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa.  Jumeirah Beach offers beautiful white sand and crystal-clear waters and is naturally a haven for lovers of watersports or top-class diving,  The magnificent hotels are arranged along the coastline, some of which, such as the remarkable Burj Al Arab, have already become iconic in their design.
