Five Socially Distant Summer Daycations In Dubai

3 min read

Looking for a post-lockdown beach day that’s free from crowds, includes fine-dining and a plush room? Opt for a Dubai daycation at one of these luxury resorts 


Nikki Beach Resort and Spa
Escape to Dubai’s Pearl Jumeira and take a day off at Nikki Beach Resort and Spa. From 10am until sundown at 7pm, enjoy access to a stylish guest room and a reserved sun lounger on the white sandy beach, with plenty of space to unwind and relax. A laid-back lunch and drinks can be served to your sunbed or in the cool comfort of your air-conditioned room — and there’s complimentary lunch for children under 12 (when dining with a paying adult); so you can bring the kids along too. Temperatures will be checked on arrival and increased sanitation measures are in place across the resort — ensuring a day of sunshine, serenity and safety. The day-stay is daily, for Dhs300 per person (minimum of two people per room);

One&Only Royal Mirage 
Set yourself up at the One&Only Royal Mirage for the day and take in the much-missed view of Dubai’s high-rise skyline set against the resort’s extensive private beachfront and lush palm-filled gardens. The daycation offer includes all-day access to one of the hotel’s Prestige rooms — the perfect place to escape the heat and enjoy an afternoon siesta — and a pass to the resort’s chic beach club, Drift, where you can indulge in classic Provençal cuisine. The pool might be temporarily closed, but there’s a secluded sun lounger on the beach destined for you. The day-stay is daily from 11am to 8pm, Dhs850 for 2 adults (with Dhs400 F&B credit per room); +971 4 399 9999
