These are the top Dubai experiences you can afford to treat yourself and your loved ones.
Enjoy a 5-star Spa session at Armani Hotel
The Armani/SPA’s sleek, modern interiors exude luxury. It is located in the famous Burj Khalifa. The spa offers a Couple’s Celebration which is a 50-minute experience in a private room. For AED693, each couple gets a massage, scrub, and wrap. You should remember that many Dubai spas offer regular promotions so make sure to call ahead to find out what specials are available at your favorite pampering spot.
Lunch at BB Social for Less
Alexander Stumpf is the executive chef of BB Social Dining. This homegrown concept has been making culinary waves in Dubai thanks to its multicultural menu. Enjoy classics starting at AED30 on weekdays from 12pm-4pm. Baos, bowls, and grills inspired by Middle Eastern and Pan-Asian flavours are the main focus of this restaurant’s Eastern cuisine. Set-price lunch menus are also available at high-end restaurants. This makes it worth signing up to daytime dining.
Shop and Save
Retold, an Al Quoz fashion boutique, has carefully selected preloved items that range from designer labels to high-street bargains. Rowlands encourages people to purchase second-hand clothes rather than brand new clothes. This will help reduce UAE’s carbon footprint. It also encourages customers to invest in quality, long-lasting clothing. For designer lovers looking to save money, Dubai Outlet Mall or The Outlet Village are great places to shop for high-end items at a discount price.
Be Bar – Glam blowouts
This women-only salon has a co-owner who is a Los Angeles native and happy clients leaving with hair that looks like a red carpet star. Be Bar is known for its blow-dries. They can create anything from glamorous vintage curls to effortlessly beach waves. Each blowout includes the best mini-head massage and luxurious brands for conditioning and washing your hair. For as low as AED160, get a glamorous hairstyle.
Spice Souk: Stock up on saffron
The fiery-hued, saffron spice is more expensive than gold per ounce. It comes from the purple Crocus flower. The laborious harvesting process and relative scarcity of the global market are the main reasons for its high price. You’ll be pleasantly surprised to find that saffron can be purchased at Dubai’s Spice Souk by the Creek in Deira. You can find high-quality saffron at a price range of AED10 to AED30 per kilogram here. You can also find dried flowers, fragrant Arabian sumac, and many other exotic ingredients.
Cruise on the Creek
Nothing is quite like seeing Dubai from the water. A private ride on Dubai Creek is a great alternative to renting a yacht. You can bring your family and friends along, take a picnic, and sail the historic area for a fixed price of AED120 an hour. There is another Dubai offer, you can also take a ride on the official water taxis or Dubai Ferry to see more of the city. Both offer competitive fares.
Join a membership and get savings
Many apps and websites offer savings opportunities. The Entertainer app makes it easier to save money after an initial investment. You can get two-for-1 vouchers you can use at many top-end restaurants. You’ll save 50% on your total cost, from luxurious hotel stays to family-friendly spas like Park Hyatt Amara and fine dining restaurants like Zheng He.
