Staycation: The Meydan Hotel

With spacious rooms, fine food and a scenic golf course, this iconic hotel goes the distance


The rooms 

There’s plenty of space to stretch out in here – the Meydan’s standard rooms are the largest in Dubai. For a further upgrade, choose a room with a balcony, or plump for a suite. The Panoramic Suite has stunning views of the famous racetrack while the Presidential Duplex Suite is a great choice for families, with space for two adults and two children, a large living room, private library and dining room that seats eight.


 The food 

Torn between cuisines? It’s no problem at Shiba, which is like two restaurants rolled into one. The lively venue serves fine fare prepared by Japanese and Chinese chefs, with sushi, sashimi and other dishes whipped up while you wait. For special occasions, the Tatami (Japanese) style private dining room fits up to 10 guests. All-day-dining restaurant Farriers is a firm favourite for its international buffet. 


The Activities 

Keen golfers can hone their skills at The Track, Meydan Golf. Dubai’s first pay-and-play golf course caters to all abilities, with a 9-hole course stretching over 7,416 yards from the back tees, working its way through a series of natural lakes. There’s also a 400-yard floodlit driving range and PGA professionals on hand to help you improve your game. Afterwards, head to Qube sports bar for a game of pool, darts or table football.
