Taste your way through the Burj Al Arab  

When it comes to luxury, there can be no better place in Dubai or, in fact, the world, than the Burj Al Arab hotel. While any activity inside the sumptuous interiors of the all-suite hotel will certainly have more than an element of luxury, perhaps the most decadent is the meal known as the ‘Culinary Flight’.

It comprises food and beverages at several restaurants and lounges inside the Burj, with an introduction at Gold On 27, a main course at Scape Restaurant, and delicious desserts at Sahn Eddar.

Watch this futuristic come to life from above 

There are many ways to get around in Dubai, but little compares to the feeling of being transported around the city aboard a private helicopter. Local company HeliDubai offers various tours of the city, including a heritage tour, where guests can take in the more traditional neighbourhoods of the city from above, and an explorer tour, which shows off Dubai's new facade in all its glory.

Shop at Atlantis, The Palm's Crystal Court

Atlantis, The Palm has an awful lot going for it, with everything from luxurious rooms and restaurants to a private beach and even a waterpark and aquarium all on-site. But one thing that often gets forgotten about Atlantis is the fact that it has its own shopping district, The Avenues.

Expect high-end boutiques from the likes of Chopard, Tiffany & Co, Longines and even Porsche. And for those who just don't know what they want, the resort’s personal shoppers are always available to lend a helping hand.

Dine at Imperium in Zabeel Saray

Located in the opulent Jumeriah Zabeel Saray on the Palm Jumeirah, grand 18th-century, French-style restaurant Imperium is luxurious by anyone’s standards, with gilded columns, glistening chandeliers and polished marble floors giving it a feeling of serious grandeur. However,
on a Friday afternoon this super-luxe eatery gets even more luxurious.

The Friday Brunch offering here is on another level. Imperium’s Royale Brunch is priced at AED2,500 per person and includes Beluga caviar, private seating and the services of a private butler. Pure decadence.
