Dubai is a city known for its luxury. The city is always thinking big. No wonder some of the world’s tallest, flashiest, and largest manmade buildings are in this desert city. For many, it is hard to fathom that the city is built almost entirely on sand in the middle of a desert. The city is also home to some of the most exotic rent a car in Dubai solutions.
Luxury runs through everything here in the city. Hotels, yachts, resorts, safaris, dining, and just about everything else is brimming with luxury. It is also called the City of Gold. Doesn’t get more luxury than that. Literally, you can eat gold in Dubai. So, whatever floats your luxury boat, will be available. Here are some of the most luxurious experiences you should surely try in the city:
The UAE has some of the calmest waters most times of the year. A luxury yacht trip can be so soothing and memorable. A large fleet of luxury yachts will always be available to choose from. Dissolute concierge services will be provided pampering you with everything required.
A luxury yacht trip will get you some of the best views of the Dubai coastline and its entirety. Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab, The Palm Jumeirah, Atlantis The Palm, and everything else will be on view. Also, hiring a private yacht will open other opportunities including exclusive scuba diving and more.
Nothing makes people feel more luxurious than the site of gold. And, there is so much gold in Deira’s Gold Souq. Literally, tons of gold. Dubbed the City of Gold, it is home to some of the biggest gold dealers in the world. There is so much bling there, you’d do good by wearing your sunglasses. 24-carat gold is not found in more abundance anywhere else in the world. Rings, bracelets, necklaces, anklets, fancy chains, and whatnot. Everything is available at the Souq.
Rent a car with driver in Dubai and visit the stunning Burj Arab. It has some of the most luxurious hotels in the world. Al Mahara is one of them and there are plenty more. You can even choose to arrive by helicopter at the Burj’s landing pad. Enter the hotel with a personal butler and concierge. High tea at the Skyview Bar on the 27th floor is also a much more affordable option. Fabulous views of the stunning Palm Jumeirah and the wide-open sea will treat you great as well.
Luxury shopping doesn’t get better than the Dubai Mall. You will find more than a thousand outlets. Also, some of the finest eateries are available at the mall as well. Visit VR Park, which is the UAE’s largest Virtual Reality center.
Most luxurious brands like Chloé, Chanel, Cartier, La Perla, Chopard Boutique, Tiffany & Co, and much more grace the mall. Some exquisite statues and a waterfall in the lobby make you wow right at the entrance. Also, the Underwater Zoo and Aquarium are great experiences too.
Yes, that’s right. You can actually eat 24-caret gold ice cream in Dubai. The Scoopi Café on Jumeirah Beach Road offers bespoke gold ice cream. There, you will get a chance to lick the purest 24-caret gold topping and take your tongue into a gold frenzy. Costing no less than AED 2,999, this is the UAE’s most expensive ice cream.
The exclusive Black Diamond Sundae is surely unique and has authentic Madagascar vanilla bean ice cream, exclusive Italian truffles, Iranian saffron, and more. And yes, it will have 24-caret edible gold as well. Of course, you get the ice cream in a Versace bowl and get to eat it with a Versace spoon. However, we hardly think that’s a luxury for people paying that much for ice cream.
Please is plenty with those tastefully lit dhow cruises. These are traditional Arab boats that are made to provide a luxurious experience. The pristine calm waters of the Dubai Marina, the Dubai Canal, and the Dubai Creek can be explored. Some of the best city views are available unhindered with a dhow cruise. Couples can even select overnight dhow cruise trips that let them sleep on the calming waters. It is a truly luxurious and majestic experience.
A luxury chauffeur service in Dubai is available with powerful SUVs that are designed for all-terrain driving experiences. In fact, many tour companies provide exclusive desert safari trip hire solutions.
Get onboard a Range Rover Sport or a Mercedes G Wagon with a trained desert safari chauffeur to experience the real UAE. There will be options to camp overnight in the desert. Also, other luxury things like a belly dance experience, authentic Arabic cuisine, and more will be available all year.
Dubai has some of the most luxurious hotels in the world. Burj Al Arab arguably tops all lists when it comes to luxury hotel stays. However, luxury hotels will cost a pretty penny no matter the time of year. Of course, you will get services tailored to meet your personal requirements and preferences.
Atlantis The Palm is a great choice offering a unique experience as well. Bulgari Resort Dubai takes a different and one of our favorite approaches to luxury with minimalism. The Palazzo Versace Dubai offers great views as well. A luxury hotel stay is a must-have for luxury seekers visiting Dubai.
All these luxury experiences will come at a cost. Undoubtedly, a great cost. So, is it all worth such big spending? Well, if you have pockets deeper than the waters in Dubai, these experiences do offer great value for money (if you can even call it that).
When traveling to this desert city on a honeymoon or any other once-in-a-lifetime experience, luxury can add to the overall experience. However, it is always advised to make all your bookings well in advance to avoid inconvenience. You will get your money’s worth no matter how much you spend.
