Dubai is home to a collection of world-class golf courses, one of which (the Emirates Golf Club) hosts the annual Dubai Desert Classic. The Desert Classic is a renowned fixture on the international golfing circuit, attracting big names such as Tiger Woods, Ernie Els and Colin Montgomerie. Despite its desert location, Dubai’s golf courses feature lush, rolling greens, water features and excellent leisure facilities.
The desert surrounding the city of Dubai offers its own selection of leisure pursuits, and it is possible to tackle the dunes in a 4x4 vehicle or on a quad bike.
Those seeking out slightly more relaxing pastimes can enjoy a range of luxurious treatments at one of Dubai’s many five-star spas. A definite ‘must-do’ spa experience while visiting Dubai is the Oriental Hammam treatment – an extravagant Middle Eastern version of a steam bath. It is available at most of the top spas in the city.
Due to the mix of nationalities in Dubai, visitors will find that they have access to a wider range of natural or complementary therapies than they might find elsewhere. You can experience traditional Indian Ayurvedic treatments, authentic Thai massage, Moroccan baths, and many more unique treatments from around the world.
