Within a private peninsula of golden sands, lagoons and open ocean, the Anantara Mina Al Arab not only features the emirate’s first overwater villas (for anyone who wants that Maldives feel without the airfare) but also a seriously beautiful spa at which to indulge in the brand’s award-winning signature treatments and Thai healing rituals. Oh and while you’re relaxing, there’s a kids and teens club to keep the gang busy with heaps of daily activities plus loads for the whole family to do together – from kayaking the surrounding mangroves to playing padel or hiking. The resort also has a genuine sustainability focus, with a glass water bottling plant onsite a commitment to local suppliers, recycling of water and lots more.


Ananatara Santorini, Abu Dhabi Retreat

Oh hello beautiful whitewashed buildings and azure blue waters – the new Anantara Satorini is literally a little slice of Greek island bliss right on the Abu Dhabi/Dubai border. The perfect escape from it all – with only 22 rooms and suites (this one’s for the grown-ups only), spend your days between the spa sanctuary and the infinity edged pool before enjoying Mediterraean dinners and movies under the stars.


Arabian Boutique Hotel

Just because you live in Dubai doesn’t mean you can’t get away from it all by booking a staycay in the emirate – especially if it means soaking up some old world culture at first Emirati boutique hotel in Old Dubai, a gorgeous set-up spread across two historic residences now offering 20 rooms and suites.  With a courtyard pool, seafood restaurant and beautiful location from which to explore one of our favourite parts of the city, you’ll feel a million miles away without having to go far.


Casa Mikoko Umm Al Quwain

Casa Mikoko offers an instant escape to Zanzibar’s laidback luxury vibe – an oasis on the water, surrounded by mangrove forests and nature. Originally a restaurant and beach, Casa Mikoko now offers five gorgeous eco-luxe huts, each with a private pool and deck over the water and each designed to blend seamlessly with the surroundings. Perfect with or without kids, paddle-board or kayak the mangroves, take a trip on a traditional African boat or just relax and watch flamingos in the distance.
