Head for this world-famous golf club, the Middle East’s oldest grass course and stage for the annual Omega Dubai Desert Classic. With three palm-lined courses ringed by skyscrapers, it’s a stunning place to polish your game and wind down after a busy day, with restaurants and bars where you can cool off later.
To-die-for views of the Burj Al Arab, succulent seafood, and a sophisticated-yet-chilled atmosphere make this pier-end eatery the perfect spot for relaxing. Take time to stroll the over-the-water walkway to ease out of work-mode, and enjoy the Mediterranean-inspired menu while soaking up the uniquely Dubai location.
Evenings out don’t get much better than at Dubai Opera, set beside the Burj Lake in Downtown Dubai. While the 2,000-seater auditorium hosts an exceptional programme of live entertainments, from musicals to ballets and classical, pop, and jazz concerts, the building is equally impressive: a futuristic recreation of a traditional Arabian dhow boat.
A fantastic way to escape Dubai’s glitzy skyscrapers and get off the beaten track, a desert safari will take you into a parallel universe of orange dunes, empty sands and Bedouin-style camps. Take off on a thrilling dune bash, ride a camel and savor a sunset dinner under the stars: all perfect antidotes to the stresses of business.
Part of the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray resort on the Palm Jumeirah, this award-winning spa’s Ottoman-style hammam and body treatments will tick all the boxes for de-stressing after a hard day or working week. Add the luxurious marble surroundings and calming atmosphere and expect to leave feeling utterly refreshed and rejuvenated.
For a refreshing blast of sea air far from the boardroom, step on to a privately chartered motor yacht for a cruise along Dubai’s shores. Lounge on deck, drop anchor to swim in the ocean, glide by iconic sights such as Dubai Marina and Palm Jumeirah, and step back ashore ready for the next round of work.
If your business hotel has no beach to its name, Kite Beach fits the bill for some serious R&R on the sands. Handy to get to from hotels in Business Bay, Downtown Dubai, and Bur Dubai, it boasts white sands, turquoise waters and bucketloads of watersports such as kite surfing and paddle boarding: ideal if you want to really blow the business cobwebs away.
With jagged peaks and rugged trails beckoning from every direction, you’ll be forgiven for letting all thoughts of deadlines and directives slip away at this centre in Dubai's Hatta region. Pounding the pedals through the remote landscapes is enough to recharge any work-weary batteries, big time.
1,187 ceiling lights, 91 LED screens, pumping tunes and a more intimate vibe than that found at Dubai’s mega-clubs, JBR’s Inner City Zoo appeals if you like to play hard after working hard. Whether you’re here for just drinks or to dance to the DJs, R&B and disco tracks, it’s slick, sassy and spot-on for letting your hair down after a long day or week.
Prior reservations for seats with the best views are recommended for Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
Plum in the centre of coastal Jumeirah, this hip beachfront destination has everything you need to chill out on a day off. Think wide, sandy beaches dotted with cabanas, palm-shaded boardwalks of warehouse-style food spots and boutiques, and more, all infused with a Californian-style atmosphere that'll have you kicking back in no time.
This elegant-as-they come restaurant is the brainchild of star chefs Nick Alvis and Scott Price—both of whom worked with Gordon Ramsay—and enjoys a prime spot in Souk Madinat Jumeirah. With a choice of menus and dining areas, including a garden terrace, its quiet calm is perfect for easing down and enjoying top-notch food after a busy day.
