It’s also the emirate for sensational theme parks, and now you can try the best of the best, for less, with leading Dubai specialists, Destinology.
All you have to do is pick your holiday dates and choose one of their fabulous five-star family resorts for a minimum of five nights and you’ll get free tickets to Dubai Parks and Resorts as part of your fantastic family holiday – terms & conditions apply.
Tempted to find out why families love Dubai in winter? Take a closer look at what’s on offer with Destinology right now and start planning your family getaway.
Regardless of its sunshine and warm temperatures in the depth of winter, Dubai doesn’t involve long-haul flights; always a bonus for families. And if you didn’t know better, you’d think the entire city had been designed with kids in mind.
Camels stroll on the beaches; the desert is one great big, amazing adventure; every watersport imaginable plays out on the warm, blue Arabian Gulf; the food here’s more fun than fuel, and if you want minute-by-minute astonishing, you’ve come to the right place.
Dubai doesn’t do anything by half-measures. It’s home to the world’s tallest tower, Burj Khalifa. The Dubai Mall is one of the largest shopping malls in the world, and the city even lets you ski on the world’s longest, real-snow, slope, all year round.
History and culture aren’t in short supply either: walk through the atmospheric souks in the Deira district, explore the pearl fishing origins at Al Ahmadiya Heritage Museum, or just glimpse graceful dhows sailing on Dubai Creek, and it’s immediately apparent that ancient traditions are as much part of daily life as iconic manmade islands and unbelievable contemporary architecture.
Family hotels aren’t name-only in Dubai. From acres of private sands to wild waterparks, on-site aquariums, resident dolphin pods, creative kids clubs, and nautical miles of swimming pools, they’re some of the most spectacular in the world, even managing to delight notoriously hard to please teens.
Dubai experts Destinology have access to the best five-star family resorts across the Emirate. Whether you want to overlook the city’s spectacular marina, gaze out from an island, or sit right on the beachfront with your toes in the Arabian Gulf, they’ll have somewhere that’s just right for you and your family
Iconic Atlantis The Palm rules Palm Jumeirah, has sea views from every room, Dubai’s largest waterpark, over a mile of private beaches, and even its own underground aquarium. Striking Jumeirah Beach Hotel lives up to its great looks, with six swimming pools, some of the city’s best water sports, and activity-packed kids clubs for all ages.
If you crave five-star opulence blended with Arabian heritage, try Madinat Jumeirah Al Qasr. Boutique grandeur’s the signature at Madinat Jumeirah Mina A Salam. And Madinat Jumeirah Dar Al Masyaf’s guest summer houses, set in tropical gardens, and connected by waterways are a delight for freedom-loving families.
Each resort offers something different and Destinology have the expert knowledge to match you with the hotel that suits your family’s needs and requirements.
But book your family holiday soon and one things certain: wherever you stay, fun days out for free at the city’s most exciting theme parks are part of the deal.
Four-in-one Dubai Parks and Resorts is the UAE’s newest theme park destination. It covers over 25 million square feet, just west of the city centre, and contains LEGOLAND®, LEGOLAND® Waterpark, MOTIONGATE™, and BOLLYWOOD PARKS™ Dubai.
LEGOLAND® needs no introduction, it’s just a little more magical with endless winter sun in the mix. Rides for two to 12 years olds are on the right side of white-knuckle, and still plenty exciting for most young thrill-seekers. Wannabe firefighters love Rescue Academy, and junior submariners can dive into an underwater world filled with fantastic sea creatures.
MOTIONGATE™ is where Hollywood meets Dubai across five different lands filled with the fabulous and famous. Smurfs Village immerses younger kids in cuteness, and Columbia Pictures has action-packed family attractions themed round favourites from Green Hornet to Ghostbusters.
DreamWorks is rollercoasters, rides, and thrills in the company of the likes of Kung Fu Panda and Shrek. Then Studio Central takes you behind-the-scenes, and Lionsgate is the all-singing, all-dancing, eating, playing, and shopping side of MOTIONGATE™.
For sheer glamour, BOLLYWOOD PARKS™ Dubai is hard to beat, anywhere. It’s the first theme park of its kind in the world dedicated to India’s legendary movieland. So look out for blisteringly colourful, cast-of-hundreds, musical extravaganzas, and don’t miss the authentic street food.
Apart from the rollercoasters and almost never-ending showtime, Dubai Parks and Resorts also comes good on malls and souks, fabulous restaurants, and acres of green space. Or if you simply want some good, old-fashioned, heritage charm, take a tour of the (almost) authentic Riverland™ district.
