Luxury Travel in Dubai – Exceptional experiences await you

Dubai is a continuously changing cosmopolitan city, a byword for today's luxury traveller. Visit the desert city and indulge in all the unforgettable and extraordinary experiences it has to offer.


Take a drive through the city

A flourishing place where anything is possible, you'll be overwhelmed by the ever-changing landscape whenever you visit. To get an up close and personal view of the latest mega-shopping malls, world-class Luxury Resorts and eye-catching skyscrapers that have filled the city, hire a vehicle from one of the many rent-a-car establishments and hit the road. Alternatively, if you're staying at a premium resort like the PER AQUUM Hotels & Resorts for example, you can simply reserve a stately vintage car for a more luxurious journey.


Cruise along the Dubai Creek

Cutting through the heart of Dubai, is the saltwater Dubai Creek, which winds its way from the trading port on the Gulf to a bird sanctuary on the desert edge. A traditional method of crossing the creek is aboard an abras, a small boat that ferry's passengers to and fro. These can be rented, along with a guide for a nominal fee. However, for a more memorable experience, cruise the creek aboard a traditional Arabian Dhow. These ancient two-mast sailing boats were used by medieval Arab seafarers during their famed voyages around the globe, and are still in use today for leisure purposes.


Take to the skies

The Dubai International Airport is one of the busiest international airports in the world, and to accommodate the major influx of passengers that go through its terminals on a daily basis, the airport has been designed to offer the very best in word-class services. Aside from the wide selection of duty-free shops, various lounges and restaurants, the airport also features two open-air garden areas, several business centres, games facilities, prayer rooms, spas and gyms. For a closer bird's eye view of the city, there are several companies available to charter a private plane for day.


Travel like the locals

When you think of the metro, you don't automatically think "luxury"; however, the Dubai Metro, a fully automated metro rail offers passengers a big step up from the usual urban metro experience. Fully air conditioned carriages with plush spacious seating and free Wi-Fi are just a few of the amenities you can find in the Metro Gold section.


Journey across the desert

If you're feeling adventurous and want to get out of the fast paced city, climb into a four-wheel drive and head out on a desert safari. Admire the incredible splendour of the stark landscape as you drive across rolling sand dunes and take in the beauty as pastel hues paint the evening sky as the sun dips below the horizon. Try out a camel ride at night across the desert or retreat to a luxurious Bedouin camp and simply sit back and relax with a shisha pipe under the stars after indulging in a delicious barbecue dinner.
