Dubai. Yes, everyone knows it and since it is so very popular almost everyone knows all there is to see in it. Well, we don’t agree because we can give you more! Yessiree! Dubai still has a lot more to see and experience! Read on to experience this Emirate like never before!
Cirque Le Soir
Think dwarves, aerial artists, jugglers, fire breathers and even painted people! It’s not for the faint-hearted they say! This is a tantalizing London brand of daring amusement at the Fairmont Dubai.
Theatre 43 floors up!
On the 43 rd floor at the Shangri-La, you can experience the world’s highest theatre club performances! The acts originated in Vegas, so you can count on it being zany!
You could be at a Venetian carnival or enjoy a cinematic dinner; whatever it is, it definitely will be a surprise, a secret until you are actually there! Every month, Lime and Tonic hosts a one-off secret supper club with meals created by renegade chef Tomas Reger – you won’t know who is going and you wont know where it is until the actual event!
The 24-carat facial
Yup! You read that right! Slather your face with 24-carat gold, well, with gold-leaf sheets draped over your face for a good half hour – glowing you shall be eh?
Talking of luxurious facials, if gold isn’t your thing, try caviar! So you don’t eat it – no problem! Put it on your face and firm your skin up instead!
And then there is placenta! As eww as it may sound, it’s what Jennifer Anniston and Madonna swear by!
The Horse Whisperer
Dubai and the races go hand in hand! And you could take your betting skills a notch up by getting to know the horses a wee bit better! Learn to be a horse whisperer and understand what they are ‘saying’ at the Hoofbeatz Equestrian Center. We know who’s winning those races next!
Ski Chalets in the Desert
Yes, you can experience the whole snow world in desert country, but have you lived in a proper Aspen-style ski chalet in the desert? You could when you live at the Aspen Chalets at the Kempinski in Dubai! Replete with views of the powdery snow of Ski Dubai, as well as a proper ski lodge aesthetic with plush wooden fixtures, mellow-lighting and even a crackling 2D fireplace projection!

Drinks at the Arcade

Bathe in a goat’s milk Jacuzzi at Talise Ottoman Spa
