We decided to get away for a few days to Dubai after the Six Nations tournament to spend some family time together. Joe has been away from us for 8 weeks which has been really hard so it is so nice to spend quality time together in the sun. We love Dubai and tend to come here every year. I used to live in Dubai, so I know it quite well. It is constantly changing and evolving with new hotels and restaurants opening constantly there is always somewhere new to try. We chose to stay at the Jumeriah Beach Hotel this time. We have never stayed here before and we mainly picked it because of it’s kids facilities. It is a really family friendly hotel and it has a great kids club which is one of the few allowing 2 year olds to attend without parents. 2 year olds are allowed to attend either a morning afternoon or evening session every day and this is a complimentary service. This is brilliant if you want a few hours to relax. We didn’t actually take full advantage of this because Joe had missed Blythe so much he preferred to hang out with her at the kids club. They also have a babysitting service which we did use when we went to brunch for a few hours. The babysitter stayed with Blythe at the kids club, gave her lunch and took her swimming. I was really anxious about leaving her and rang several times to check how she was but she loved it and wasn’t bothered at all about us going.
(I’m obsessed with our matching beach baskets which are from Sunuva)
Another great reason to stay at a Jumeirah hotel is that if you choose to be half board you can use your half board to eat at any of their 5o restaurants across the whole of Dubai. There is a great kids pool, adults pool and an executive pool and a beautiful beach with view of the Burj al Arab. If you are staying at Jumeirah beach hotel you also have free access to Wild Waddi water park which is great fun. There is something for everyone and even a special kids area with child friendly slides.
We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to families in particular.
