When your car shows temperatures climbing up to 50oC outside, you know it’s time to retreat indoors and find great heatproof activities to enjoy weekends in Dubai.
Coffee and Shop
Symphony has teamed up with Starbucks, located on the first floor of the new fashion avenue of The Dubai Mall, to offer its fashion savvy clientele a drink of choice upon purchase in store. Once the complimentary drink is redeemed, you can then treat yourself with an additional 10% discount on sale items at the boutique. Available till August.
Movie’s and Chill
Grab the pop corn and get comfortable in Dubai’s first hotel cinema located at the Rove Downtown. The Reel Cinemas 46-seat theatre offers everything you could want from a night at movies, and is fully licensed.
Tokyo in Dubai
Can’t decide between pizza or sushi? Why not have both at the newly opened Akiba Dori, inspired by the lively Akihabara district in Tokyo in the Dubai Design District. If you want to take a break from the food, challenge yourself to some the arcade games before sitting down to dessert of Nutella-stuffed ‘Taiyaki’ while music beats from the speakers.
Spa like the Italians
Blue waters hitting the white beaches might seem appealing, but the Bvlgari Resort offers an even nicer view from their spa. With seven treatment rooms and one couples suite with a sea-facing indoor pool lined with real gold (yep, that’s right) this is a sanctuary from the heat like no other.
