Welcome to the weekend, mama! It’s come around early this time and we’ve got a glorious long one – yippee! Enjoy the sunshine by the beach or the pool (don’t forget to slather on the SPF!), or if you can’t stand the heat, there are a couple of indoor markets to check out with the littlies. 

SMDXB-Weekender-Double Tree by HiltonDon’t break the bank with a Beach Pass
It’s a long weekend here in Dubai, so we are thinking some beach time is in order. At Double Tree by Hilton, it’s just AED125 in the week and AED150 on the weekend for adults to enjoy the beach and the pool. Children are half price, so that’s Saturday sorted.

SMDXB-Weekender-Jumeirah Zabeel SarayBlow the budget with some beach luxury
Have some 5-star luxury this weekend or any day for that matter, with a beach or pool pass to Jumeirah Zabeel Saray. Adults are AED250 and children are AED150 any day of the week. It’s also one of the more exclusive 5-star beaches in Dubai, so what’s not to love?
