This three-in-one resort is one of our Dubai favourites. Transport the children into an Arabian fairytale. The intricate Moorish arches, sparkling fountains and extravagant gardens of this regal resort set on its own expansive private beachfront are sure to fire young imaginations. There are oodles of leisure facilities and a KidsOnly Club where local traditions are celebrated with belly dancing, camel riding and Bedouin tent evening adventures. Junior swimming, tennis and water skiing lessons are also available. Interconnecting rooms are available and in addition to several family orientated restaurants, the resort also provides an all-day dining menu for junior gourmands. Definitely sign up for some of the resort’s excursions: desert jeep safaris, dune surfing and sand skiing or why not take a camel caravan to the garden city of Al Ain or camp in the desert under a thousand stars.
