Dubai's Ultimate Daycation
Beyond the flat arid dessert lies a hidden gem on the coastline of Jebel Ali, a resort that’s loaded with holiday vibes. With two pools, a private beach and an inflatable water park floating on the sea, guests’ only quandary at this exotic hideaway will be deciding where to lay their towels. No need to worry about the heat – there are swim-up bars with underwater stools where you can keep your cool. Other treats on offer range from exhilarating bananas boat rides, and if you manage to work up an appetite, there’s an option to indulge in a barbecue in La Fontana restaurant.
