Experience the ultimate family getaway in Dubai
Dubai has become a go-to spot for families seeking winter sun, and for good reason. Not only does it offer balmy temperatures amid a glistening skyline, which can be admired from the hotel’s private beach, but its resorts boast exclusive facilities and activities that cater to all the family. This is no truer than at the Taj Exotica Resort & Spa The Palm Dubai. Located on the Palm Jumeirah, the resort’s Taj Club Lounge offers access to afternoon tea, free-flowing cocktails and refreshments throughout the day for guests staying in suites and club rooms.

Adults have their own 70-metre pool to enjoy, too, with a bar positioned at either end to keep you motivated while completing your laps.
