Ohhh how I loved Dubai, but really….I would move there. Dubai is a desert so yes it’s hot. When we arrived there was a dust storm and it wasn’t good visibility of the skyline. I recommend going during later months (not August like us), but whenever you can go go. It’s a once in a lifetime trip.
Where We Stayed
The Conrad. The Conrad is a Hilton brand. I am obsessed because I used to work for Hilton. I used 34,000 Hilton points for one night. The best part is our flight wasn’t until late so they let us check out at 7pm (the latest late check out I’ve ever had). Which was much needed because it’s so hot you need at least 2 showers a day there.
This was in a great location right across from the metro. It has a pool and a spa. The do deals throughout the summer so I got a 30 minute massage and 30 minute facial for $88. Not. Too. Bad. Right?
Where We Ate
There’s tons of places to eat at the mall. Not gonna lie…we weren’t local the whole time. We had Cheesecake Factory and Paul Bakery. I even heard they are getting a Chick-Fil-A soon.
For dinner, I highly recommend Zuma. If you like sushi there’s a ton of different options.
Also for breakfast or coffee I highly recommend Paul Baker. You’ll see the latte and crepes above 😋.
There are also a ton of restaurants by the Burj Khalifa. Which is a perfect spot to watch the fountains, much like the ones in Las Vegas Bellagio, but better!!
Just know Dubai is pretty pricey. You only need a few days there. I wish we would have had more time to see the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, but maybe next time.
Overall, we didn’t get a rental car. It was easy to around the metro station was right in front of our hotel, but we aware there is a women’s section!! Rayan and I were standing in the all pink section and didn’t notice why everyone was looking at us. It’s for women and children LOL.
