The week's best Dubai events and other things to do in Dubai this week and weekend, including deals at Dubai restaurants, bars, spas, cinema and more.
Sure, five of the seven days are supposed to be 'work, sleep, repeat', but frankly we see 16 hours either side of your 9-5 that need filling with fun things to do. So, round-up, because this is your ultimate guide to the week and weekend ahead, with the latest events, deals, sports, film releases and more.
Work from acclaimed Spanish surrealist Salvador Dalí is going on show in Dubai this month. COYA Dubai is hosting the exhibition, which will enable art-lovers to see around 60 of the iconic artist’s pieces. It’s open to the public from Wednesday June 20 until the end of August, so don’t miss it.
Sun, sand and discounts, anyone? Palm Jumeirah beach club RIVA is offering a summer-long deal, where you can get day passes for Dhs105 instead of Dhs200 during weekends and 25 percent discount on all à la carte food and drink.
Thought your summer holidays couldn’t get any better? Think again. You can now enjoy free ice cream before your vacation even begins. Emirates is giving away two million Emperor ice creams – in five flavours – from multiple carts dotted around Terminal 3’s Departures and transit areas. Chill-out pre-flight. Terminal 3 Departures and transit, Dubai International Airport, www.emirates.com.
The Els Club in Dubai Sports City is offering a Dhs5,195 summer offer, which includes unlimited golf seven days a week, plus cash back on a range of facilities and services, including 15 percent off food and drinks, various discounts on retail items as well as ten percent off lessons at the Butch Harmon School of Golf. It’s time to book in and get working on that swing.
One of the city’s most famous waterparks is offering a splashing (sorry) summer deal. UAE residents can save nearly Dhs200 during summer, with day rates starting from Dhs149 including VAT. Test your bravery on rides such as the Jumeirah Sceirah or just chill on the lazy river.
Bargain hunters and saleseekers, listen up. Dubai’s six-week Summer Surprises sale has returned and we are leading the stampede to the shops. Until Saturday August 4, at various locations across the city, there will be a “Deal of The Day” offer, weekend destination surprises and a final weekend sale. YouTube megastar KSI is even flying in. The British comedian, actor and rapper will be at The Dubai Mall until Monday July 2 to play against members of the public on the PlayStation as part of an ITP Live and Dubai Summer Surprises collaboration. Meanwhile if you visit The Beach, opposite JBR, you can expect discounts of up to 50 percent at restaurants, shops and even at the cinema. Winning. www.dubaisummersurprises.com.
