Luxury Holidays in Dubai

Your Dubai holiday will be one of utter refinement and elegance. Let the most exclusive resorts of the UAE cater to your every whim. With world-class restaurants, bars and cafés, you could be exploring the old town by day and dining in some of the most sophisticated establishments in the Middle East by night. Imagine dining in the clouds, with the grand metropolis below, as you prepare for high tea in the world's tallest building.

Please note: The Dubai authorities have levied a Tourism Dirham Tax for all guests. The Fee will be levied per occupied room night and will be stated as a separate line item on the hotel's bill, as presented at the end of the stay. Unfortunately we are not able to add the tax to your invoice, this can only be paid locally. The amount to be levied will be 20 AED for five star properties which at the moment translates to approximately £3.50 per room per night, and 15 AED for four star properties - about £2.50. This fee does not apply to hotels in Fujairah or Ras Al Khaimah.

Things to Do in Dubai

In a city that abounds with modern architectural structures, try not to miss out on Old Dubai for a tantalising glimpse into the past. Built at the beginning of the twentieth-century, pay a visit to the Al Ahmadiya School in Deira where you’ll witness the city’s first ever school. With a deep and fascinating social history, make your way into the Dubai Museum to learn more about the emirate. In one of the last standing areas of a bygone time – the Bastakiya District – you’ll encounter a host of reconstructed traditional style buildings exuding a sense of Middle Eastern history. But you can’t leave this wonderful location without first discovering the Jumeirah Mosque on Jumeirah Road. Be stunned by the aesthetic beauty of modern Arabia.

Ramadan in Dubai

The vast majority of local people in Dubai are Muslim, so Ramadan is the most prominent event in the emirate. Ramadan’s timing is lunar and therefore not fixed in terms of the western calendar. Ramadan is the month of fasting when Muslims abstain from all food, drinks and smoking from dawn to dusk. As a sign of respect, visitors are also requested to refrain from consuming these items in public places during the daylight hours of this month.

However, if you are a non-fasting visitor to Dubai, your international hotel or resort will provide you with food and beverage outlets during the day. Most activities run as normal during Ramadan, so you can visit golf clubs, sports centres, shopping malls and spas. Just make sure you check opening hours before you visit them, as they may vary during the Holy Month.

The dates for Ramadan 2017 are 27 May - 25 June. Please speak to your Middle East specialist at Kenwood Travel for more information.

Weather in Dubai

Located on the Gulf of Oman and bordered by desert, the weather in Dubai can get extremely hot. From the end of September to the start of May, you’ll encounter a much cooler tempered climate (though still considerably hot!). Meanwhile, nights will bring a drastic drop in temperature. Make sure you bring some suitably cool clothing, as the months between May and September will bring about an intense heat with temperatures reaching highs of 54 degrees centigrade. Unfortunately, such extraordinary highs can prevent many outdoor activities during summer days. However, in Dubai they’ve thought of everything, and you definitely won’t be scratching your head for things to do.
