Luxury Family Holidays in Dubai

Dubai is so much more than luxury hotels, shopping and high-end restaurants. It is a real crowd pleaser for families with children of all ages with its incredible beaches, waterparks and many outdoor activities in the nearby desert. 

A great way to make the most of Dubai and the UAE is to combine a few days in the centre of Dubai and a few days in a luxury desert resort. 

Plan your Dubai adventure here.

Why is Dubai delightful for families?

Offering a wide range of activities to suit every member of the family, Dubai is an absolute pleasure to visit.

With so many flights between the UK and Dubai, you can choose the best time of day for your family. With flight times under 7 hours, we believe day flights to Dubai are the best option for young families.

Once in Dubai, choose a resort that suits your needs best – next to the beach, the shopping malls, the waterparks, it’s up to you. And if you can’t decide give us a call and we can guide you!

Here are some of our favourite family activities in Dubai: 

  • Mountain bike in the Hatta mountains
  • Sand board down a dune in the desert
  • Ride a camel across the desert
  • Spend the night in a luxury tent in the desert
  • Take an exhilarating dune bashing tour of the desert
  • Enjoy a BBQ under the stars in the desert
  • Watch the spectacular dancing fountain show on Burj Khalifa lake 
  • Swish down the slides at one of Dubai’s waterparks
  • Visit one of the many theme parks in Dubai, such as Legoland
  • Marvel at the giant aquarium at Atlantis

Frangipani’s Top Tip

For the best view of the city and a big thrill, take the Glass Slide at 220m at the top of the Sky Views Observatory.
