You know how it works. You leave a vacation thinking “I need a vacation from this vacation.” All the packing, line standing at airports, then unpacking only to repack soon after can leave one exhausted. That exhaustion is multiplied if you have children. It seems like a lot of work for something that is supposed to be relaxing and fun.
Planning the perfect getaway can be more of a hassle than it’s worth. Instead of spending all of that time and energy on a vacation in a faraway land, try staying home, or close to home, and give yourself a much-needed staycation. The perfect staycation isn’t just another day off; it’s a way to set your body and mind into total relaxation mode.
Now, UAE & GCC residents can receive 15% off hotel room rates to stay at the FIVE Palm Jumeirah hotel in Dubai. Not only that but you benefit from a 20% discount off dining at BLVD On One, 50% off your first spa treatment, plus 25% off any additional treatments and a 3pm late check-out.
Whether you live in a nearby country or a UAE resident, being a tourist in a familiar city will open your eyes to places you may have never tried otherwise. Book your stay at the brand-new, magnificent FIVE to have a staycation that will put all your vacations to shame.
Once you’re in the hotel it’s going to be hard to leave. The best way to kick start a vacation is to begin at the Spa. The Spa at FIVE has fourteen treatment rooms, of which four are open air. They offer a selection of exquisite massages, facials, and beauty enhancements for men and women. It’s a perfect place to renew and refresh with a Hammam, relaxation lounge, and spa pool. If you get peckish while relaxing, try the Spa café with healthy rejuvenating beverages accompanied by a delicate selection of Salads and Tartine.
You’ll never need to leave the hotel whether it’s for food or fun. Stop at BLVD on One, a world Brasserie that offers a breakfast buffet, lunch, and dinner a-la-carte. With the famous Chef Robert merging foods from Asia, Middle East, Nordic, Europe, and Latin America. Still feeling energetic then skip the nap and head to the penthouse where DJ Nua performs Tuesday till Saturday (8pm till midnight)
Little Italy in Dubai, give your taste buds a trip through Italy at Quattro Passi. A family style dining restaurant with tableside theatrics to keep the entire family entertained. Here, you can skip your favorite drink and try a glass of homemade Limoncello.
Stay cool in the pool. Work on your tan while enjoying creative beverages on the pool bar or order one of the pool bar’s great tasting favorites such as burgers, pizzas and salads.
As the night approaches, you might feel the urge to celebrate the success of your staycation planning. Step into Elevate bar and experience an extensive wine list with breathtaking views. If you feel like a night out instead, don’t bother with any planning. Call the concierge to arrange theatre or concert tickets for you and your .
