As residents of Dubai, we’re blessed to be surrounded by so many locally-based, sought-after dining destinations and hot staycation spots. Whether it be a 15-minute drive to Palm Jumeirah in Dubai, an hour’s drive to Abu Dhabi or a little further to Ras Al Khaimah or Fujairah, the UAE alone has many options on offer for when you need a short break away from the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life – without the hassles of air travel.

Inside the inaugural edition of Summer Specials, we take a look at some of the best resorts and restaurants located within a short radius of Dubai that are currently offering fantastic deals for you and your family during the summer months. Whether it be for a daycation, a short trip or an extended relaxing holiday, these destinations are perfect for those living in Dubai looking for a getaway that won’t break the bank.

All that’s left to do is have a flick through, book your stay and round up your crew for a trip to remember.

Happy Holidays!
