Location | Sofitel Dubai Downtown

If there’s one thing that’s great about Dubai, it’s the availability of so many incredible hotels to spoil yourself in during the weekends. There’s always something exciting about the prospect of a new environment and a luxurious staycation.

Normally, we’d choose to stay around the Palm area due to the great selection of hotels, central location and the guarantee of a perfect sunset view for sundowners.

For a change however,  my beau & I decided to stay in Sofitel Dubai Downtown. It’s located close to Dubai Mall which was perfect for a weekend of shopping, a stroll through Souk al Bahar & the Boulevard before finishing off with dinner by the fountains.

During our two day stay, we spent most of our time by the spacious pool relaxing whilst attended by their friendly staff. Home was 15 minutes away from the hotel but with the experience we had, it felt like we were on a proper holiday.

Which is your favorite staycation destination in the UAE?
