Beach clubs in Dubai are absolutely part of the culture, with glamorous sun, sand and sea locations in abundance around the city. Top picks include Summersalt, Verde and SAN...

With direct views of the Burj Al Arab, Summersalt beach club at Jumeirah Al Naseem offers a sun soaked, luxury beach experience like no other. Indulge in Latin American dishes from the comfort of your sun bed as you look out on to turquoise waters – it’s a great spot for sunset too. Next door is Verde, a famous St Tropez beach club that feels like a bohemian oasis. This sandy setting is both chic yet trendy, with seriously instagrammable interiors. SAN beach on the Palm Jumeirah is seriously stylish and oozing sophistication – the powder soft sand was imported from the Maldives. The culinary experience, resident band and African influences brings an energy you’ll remember when you’re back on home soil.








Best Desert Safari Expereicne?

An authentic desert safari experience is a must when visiting Dubai, and Platinum Heritage allows you to journey across the dunes in a stylish vintage Land Rover Defender to embark on a cultural adventure. Take a step back in time to experience Bedouin life, ride on a camel, watch the falcon show and savour an authentic Arabic dinner under the desert sky. Stay overnight in a luxury tent and enjoy a sunrise hot air balloon ride the following morning before returning to the city.




A Must-See For Culture?

Abrahamic Family House - This breath-taking multi-faith complex on Abu Dhabi’s Saadiyat Island is architecturally mesmerising and a must-see when visiting the UAE. Housing a mosque, church and a synagogue envisioned by Ghanaian-British architect Sir David Adjay, the Abrahamic Family House was created to promote peaceful co-existence amongst faiths. There’s no doubt you’ll be moved by the extraordinary symbolism, beauty and magic of this powerful landmark.
