Early Classes. The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai offers many morning activities for guests to enjoy. From yoga and Pilates to sea kayaking and kite flying, check with the hotel concierge to see what’s scheduled during your stay.
Higher and Higher. If you think you couldn’t get higher than the top of the Burj Khalifa, think again. Start your day with a thrill by hopping onto a helicopter for a scenic tour of Dubai from above. Whiz along the coastline for aerial views of the Palm Jumeirah and the sparkling turquoise waters of the Arabian Sea.
Hit the Slopes. At Ski Dubai in the Mall of Emirates, step into below-zero temperatures (about -2 C, or 28 F), strap on your skis and get into
a chairlift for a trip down a slope covered in artificial snow. Complete with cozy cabins and a café offering hot chocolate, experiencing this winter wonderland in the middle of the desert is a uniquely Dubai experience.
Go Back in Time. To get some perspective on how quickly Dubai has grown in a short time, pay a visit to the Dubai Museum in Al Fahidi Fort, the city’s oldest building. Visitors can explore the artifacts and displays that explain how a humble fishing town in the desert has transformed into a futuristic metropolis.
To Market. After exiting the museum, visit the nearby textile souk to admire the beautiful fabrics and clothing, and then take an abra (wooden boat) across Dubai Creek to visit the spice and gold souks. Get lost in the smells and sights of the winding alleys and enjoy a bit of aimless wandering.
Sunsets is in Session. Head back to The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai to enjoy the Sunset Session at La Baie, a casually sophisticated indoor/outdoor venue with great views and comfortable seating. Grab a lounger or a private cabana and enjoy a cocktail or shisha while relaxing after an eventful day.
Get Social. For your last meal, head to Social by Heinz Beck, a contemporary Italian restaurant on Palm Jumeirah. The world-renowned chef brings his inventive and innovative culinary techniques to Dubai, transforming simple ingredients into something entirely new and fresh. Whether it’s gnocchi with green pea foam or veal served with a peach coulis, whatever you chose, your taste buds will be delighted.
