Caress your credit card because Dubai is as far from modest as it gets. Why drive a Volkswagen if you can have a Ferrari? (BTW the cops drive a Ferrari). Why fly all the way to Aspen if you can ski on the roof of the Dubai mall? Never mind Ibiza, your private island is at your doorstep. It’s all gold and marbles: so enjoy and indulge!
1. Stay at the Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah. With the biggest rooms I have ever seen. Don’t miss out on the famous Friday brunch.
2. It’s time for the beach! Visit beachclub One And Only on the Palm. White sand and super clear water. What more can we ask for?
3. No Dubai without shopping and no shopping without going to the Dubai mall. With over 1200 stores, spa’s, mysterious dressed woman and an indoor dive with sharks. Satisfaction guaranteed. Don’t miss out on the Address hotel located at the end of the mall, with an even better cocktail bar. Be there at sundown!
4. Dress up for restaurant Coya. This new place, that just opened in the Four Seasons hotel, in Jumeirah is hot! Tip: order the Ceviche.
Don’t forget to pack your most fabulous outfits, handbags and shoes. Showing off is necessary. Dubai style is probably not pre-owned, but with a lot of love (ok, and money).
