Eid Al-Adha 2019: 2 Best Staycation Boltholes in Dubai

These two self-care splurge options are perfect if you’re staying in the emirate for the upcoming holiday.

We all crave a holiday every now and then, especially when we see all those postcard-perfect images while scrolling through Instagram. However, the thought of long travelling hours can half fizzle the excitement away, especially if we feel burned out. Staycations can be the ultimate solution when craving a getaway as they offer the same benefits like relaxation, refreshment and experiencing new things without all that airport hassle. Here are two of the best options during Eid if you’re living in Dubai.

The Queen Elizabeth 2

The Queen Elizabeth 2 (QE2), the iconic ocean liner docked permanently in Dubai’s Mina Rashid, is the waterfront venue for Dubai’s residents that want to make the most of the long weekend. Whether you want to go with a bestie or treat that special someone, an on board adventure can be yours with the special Eid Escape package. During the two-night stay, two guests will get to enjoy a daily breakfast, a QE2 Brunch, as well as 40 percent off all QE2 spa experiences for pre or post-brunch relaxation.

With the AED 790 per couple offer, guests get to stay in a Standard Room and enjoy the soft beverage QE2 Brunch. While the AED 1,140 per couple deal also entails sleeping in a Standard Room, guests can benefit from the house beverage QE2 Brunch. These rates exclude service charge, local fees and VAT.

A unique way to unwind, the getaway can be booked from 14-15 August, or from 15-17 August.
 

Palazzo Versace Dubai

Palazzo Versace Dubai’s new staycation option, called Q’scation, includes an overnight stay with breakfast and dinner at the Iranian-themed Enigma restaurant. Drinks and bites at Q’s Bar & Lounge, which just happens to be Quincy Jones’s first jazz club, then follow the delicious dinner.

Staying in a neoclassical property that is reminiscent of a 16th century Italian Palace, which boasts a striking lobby brimming with Versace vibes, can only be a fabulously fashionable experience. Guests can cool down in style in one of the three outdoor swimming pools, each boasting a distinct Versace feel and Dubai Creek views. Plus, they get to settle down for the night in rooms that are designed and tailor-made by Versace for the hotel.

During the pre-show dinner served at Enigma, guests can indulge in authentic and refined Iranian cuisine created by Michelin starred Executive Chef Mansour Memarian. And after dinner, each guest is offered two drinks and bites at Quincy Jones’ s very own Q’s Bar & Lounge. What’s more jazz lovers will delight in watching renowned powerhouse Brenna Whitaker in action.

The next morning guests get to taste from the array of international stations at Giardino. The vibrant space with marble ‘terrazzo’ flooring, ornate columns and jungle motif wallpaper is the perfect place to start any day.

The staycation package, starting at AED 1550, is available from Tuesdays to Saturdays until September 30 (a new artist will be introduced at Q’s Bar & Lounge after August 17).
