Staycation: Sofitel Dubai Jumeirah Beach

If you do like to be beside the seaside, this chic hotel places you at the heart of the promenade


The rooms 

You can tick ‘room with a view’ off your wish list, as every guestroom and suite has a private balcony from which to gaze at the glistening sea towards iconic landmarks such as Ain Dubai Ferris wheel and Palm Jumeirah. Party of five? Book the Imperial Suite, which comes complete with a bubbling Jacuzzi in the king-size bedroom, a spacious living room and kitchen. 


 The food 

Two restaurants and two lounges offer the chance to dine around, but don’t miss a legendary Dubai brunch. A.O.C. international buffet restaurant rolls out the red carpet every Friday for three hours of fine French food, including homemade foie gras and moules mariniére. Equally fun are the Theme Nights (daily from 7pm-11pm), which will take your taste buds on a journey through Morocco, Italy, Arabia and beyond. 


The Activities 

Beach-goers can make the most of the hotel’s coveted location beside the open beach and The Walk at JBR, which is bustling with shops and cool attractions. Plus, being near the tram station, and just a 10-minute walk from the metro station, means you’ll find it easy to get out and explore the wider city. The best bit? You can receive up to 30% off room rates (breakfast included), all summer long.
