Dubai stands as a city where grandeur knows no bounds, elevating global features to unprecedented levels of magnificence. From the world’s tallest skyscraper to a fountain rivalling the Bellagio in Las Vegas, with exceptional shopping, dining, and entertainment, Downtown Dubai beckons those seeking luxury-living real estate or making property investments.
Within the Burj Khalifa, recognized as the world’s tallest skyscraper, lies a fitness centre, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, an opulent spa with panoramic views of Downtown Dubai, a lofty lounge, and a restaurant serving lunch, dinner, and beverages. Membership packages or day passes for non-members provide access to these exclusive amenities.
Members or non-members can use customizable state-of-the-art workout equipment in the Burj Club gym or swim laps in the indoor Olympic-sized pool. The gym also offers body pump, power yoga, circuit, and kickboxing classes in hourly increments.
Spa and beauty treatments
Saunas, steam rooms, and experience showers are available in separate spaces for men and women. The experience showers activate all the senses through light, sound effects, aromas, water temperature changes, and various shower pressures. In addition to aesthetics and emotional wellness, experience showers can help stimulate the metabolism, nervous system, and blood flow.
Skilled professionals can provide rejuvenating body treatments, massages, and facials, offering options like caviar collagen for diminishing dark circles or lip-plumping treatments.
Afternoon tea or drinks in the lounge
Relish afternoon tea or drinks at the world’s tallest lounge, indoors or on the terrace. At the same time, I was admiring the Downtown Dubai skyline or stunning sunsets, savouring extravagant teas, coffees, finger sandwiches, and sweet treats during the afternoon. In the evening, indulge in alcoholic beverages or champagne alongside gourmet canapés, complemented by live entertainment.
Lunch, dinner, and drinks at the Burj Club Rooftop restaurant
For lunch, dinner, and drinks, head to the Burj Club Rooftop restaurant, which serves from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays and extends until midnight on weekends. Explore a menu featuring soups, salads, and appetizers before the main courses are presented. But be sure to make room for chicken shawarma, marinated chicken wrapped in Saj bread, and garlic spread for lunch. At the same time, dinner offers a mixed grill of lamb chops and chicken kofta served with garlic sauce.
Have a taste for cuisine other than local fare? The menu also offers fish and chips, Angus beef burgers, and club sandwiches for lunch. Dinner serves grilled beef ribeye, grilled salmon, and oven-roasted chicken breast. While relaxing and socializing, enjoy signature cocktails, classic cocktails, wine, and beer.
With a combination of lights, colour projectors, and water pressure configurations, residents of Dubai can treat themselves to spectacular water, light, and music shows at the Dubai Fountain any time of the day. The displays are shown every half an hour until midnight and run for 10 minutes. The fountain performs a wide range of different songs, from classical to contemporary Arabic and world music. The songs, light shows, and arrangements always differ, treating locals to another show with each visit.
Dubai is located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf, where turquoise waters and white sandy beaches await. There is a beach that accommodates visitors depending on their preferred activities.
Sunset or Umm Suqeim Beach
This beach is one of the quieter beaches along the coast. It allows for relaxation in the sun, napping, or catching up on reading by borrowing a book from the many beach libraries along the shore. The peaceful ambience encourages tranquil morning strolls or runs.
Jumeirah or Nessnass Beach
This location welcomes those who prefer a laid-back or active day at the beach. Welcoming waters and clean stretches of sand are perfect for the sunbather and occasional swimmer. However, if excitement and action are required, sign up for lessons or rent kitesurfing, paddleboard, or kayak equipment.
Considered Dubai’s sportiest beach, locals can take part in kite surfing, volleyball, stand-up paddleboarding, and kayaking. Activities on land include a skatepark and an outdoor trampoline.
This beach offers five beautiful beaches for sunbathing and swimming, including a lagoon and a sheltered beach. Enhance the beach experience by renting a sun lounger or a private air-conditioned beach chalet. Three pools are available for those who want to avoid getting sandy from the shore. In addition to the beaches and pools, Al Mamzar has an expansive park with barbeque areas and playgrounds.
