If winter sun is high on your family holiday wish list, look no further than Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah; the sunniest island in the world’s most sun-soaked city, and only seven hours flying time from the UK.
Travelbag are offering up to £1000-off family holidays on Palm Jumeirah, from now until 31 December 2018. You have to book your break before 3o November 2017, but that shouldn’t be too tricky with five of Dubai’s leading five star family hotels to choose from, and holidays for as little as £499pp for three nights, including flights.
Plus, Travelbag are also giving away free upgrade to half-board and free Family Day Passes to Dubai’s top theme parks with every family holiday booked before 30 November 2017.
Is Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah the best winter sun bargain for families right now? Take a look at the savings on leading luxury hotels and decide for yourself.
Atlantis is the Dubai resort with sea views from every room, the city’s biggest and wildest waterpark, a legendary aquarium, and its very own Dolphin and Sea Lion colonies.
Naturally, the Palm Jumeirah’s full-on thrill potential gets top marks from kids, and clubs for toddlers to teens score pretty high with them too. But will you love Atlantis?
If almost a kilometre of white sand beaches, over 23 world-class restaurants, an exclusive shopping mall, and the Arabian Gulf first thing every morning, isn’t persuasive enough; you might like to know that the resort’s ShuiQi Spa was just named Best Hotel Spa of the Year 2017.
The island oasis with an incredible talent for entertaining kids, Fairmont The Palm is one of Dubai’s great family resorts.
Four huge swimming pools and a private beach on the Arabian Gulf let you make the most of the city’s endless sunshine. Young adventurers have everything from water sports to creative play at the resort’s excellent Falcons Juniors Club for under 15s.
Fresh fish, authentic Brazilian cooking and even delectable Afternoon Teas, are just a hint of how good the food is here. And if you need anything else at all, just ask: superb service, from poolside to the soothing spa, is another of Fairmont’s famous talents.
With its charming overwater bungalows and lush, tropical gardens, Anantara looks more like a fantasy South East Asian village than a resort hotel. The only giveaway is the Arabian Gulf in every direction, and a flawless, sun-drenched Dubai sky overhead.
Paradise setting aside, Antara is as family-friendly as it is exotic. The brand’s known worldwide for imaginative kids clubs, exciting teen activity programmes and fantastic diving and water sports, and their Dubai resort is no exception.
If you can tear yourself away from lagoon swimming pools, private beaches and soothing spas, Anantara also has six exciting restaurants to choose from, and Dubai city centre is less than 20 minutes drive away.
Few hotels in the world are more in love with their location than Sofitel The Palm. From vast panoramas of Dubai’s legendary skyline to lingering looks over the Arabian Gulf and The Palm itself, there’s almost nowhere in this lovely family resort that doesn’t come with views.
Great gazing potential is more than matched by endless activities, whether you’re up for golf or tennis, a spot of deep-sea fishing, sunset cruises or simply splashing around in view-rich swimming pools.
Sofitel’s safe, private white sand beach is a natural play-zone for children, and they’ll find the idea of the ‘kids only’ restaurant, Amura, completely irresistible.
When the famously luxurious Waldorf meets the Arabian Gulf in one of the world’s most exciting cities, expect incredible, and you won’t be disappointed.
What may surprise, and delight you, is the resort’s friendly atmosphere and sense that nothing is too much trouble, even for the youngest of young guests. Add in fun swimming pools, a huge private beach, baby pools and open-all-day restaurants, and it’s easy to see why The Waldorf is such a firm favourite with families.
