Where to stay on your Dubai staycation


Living in Dubai, summer is synonymous with travelling, enjoying a well-deserved break or visiting loved ones. As the heat amps up at home, many look to international destinations for long holidays and quick breaks locally. But for many Dubai families, a staycation is the top choice for getting through these hot summer months. As we slowly start to travel again, why not holiday in the country you're already in while waiting for things to ease up?

Downtown Dubai

One of Dubai’s best cultural and entertainment offerings, Downtown Dubai is definitely amongst the favorite areas for residents. Nestled between Old Dubai and Business Bay along Sheikh Zayed Road, Downtown is a gateway to some of the city's top sightseeing spots, conference venues, industry events and many business hubs. It’s also the home of Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Waterfront, which perches proudly in prime place in Business Bay amongst its neighbors.

Luxury without the stuffiness. Five-star service without the pretention.  Friendliness with the right amount of respect.  This hotel is full of character and lovable eccentricities, starting with the Scottish flag flying high and proud at its door. Enjoy the fantastic city skyline and Burj views from the comfort of your room or head to Fire Lake Grill House terrace for a delicious dinner, or a sundowner while soaking up the city surroundings. The friendliest 5 star hotel is offering you a staycation with more than 90% value back, starting from only AED 299 per person. Satisfy your food craving and take a break from every day’s life.

One of the oldest neighborhoods in Dubai and the main commercial district along Dubai Creek, Deira is a place where tradition and necessity meet. Explore Dubai’s hidden history with a tour of Old Deira, discovering the bustling souks, traditional architecture and fascinating stories. The Dubai Creek, which flows between Deira and Bur Dubai, is the historic center of the city. While the skyline features many modern buildings and towers, the traditional barajeel - the wind towers of the coral stone houses - can still be seen peeking out from behind the markets. One such building is Heritage House, built in 1890 and consisting of two floors overlooking a rectangular courtyard.

Once the hub of all trade and fishing industries, it’s now home to a range of waterside attractions. For a traditional way of exploring the creek, take an Abra or Dhow trip, or even hire out your own boat for an hour to take in some of the oldest parts of the city. The old-fashioned merchant shops and lively markets of Old Deira are just steps away from the Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai Deira Creek.

Are you a massive foodie who fancies dining around the hotel’s signature restaurants without having to worry about the bill? The Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai Deira Creek is offering a special “Foodie-cation” priced at only AED 295 per person inclusive of food and a hotel room! Guests who avail this package get a 3-course set menu for lunch or dinner at any of the hotel’s award-winning restaurants including Fish Market and Shabestan.
