9 great things to do in Dubai this weekend



VR Park
The double story park is home to three great virtual experiences; Dubai Drone, Ape X and John Wick Chronicles. Our favourite being “Dubai Drone”. Set in 2050, the ride is based around a taxi journey in the sky. The only issue is, the sky is full of traffic and your taxi spins out of control – great fun.
Where: The Dubai Mall, Level 2
Price: From AED 45

The annual art exhibit is back for its third edition. Much like previous years, it will see the city’s aspiring artists portray what Ramadan means to them in art form. The free event is open to all and guests are encouraged to make their own submissions. In short, it’s a great way to learn more about the blessed Holy Month and to do so in the company of friends and family.
When: May 14 – June 17
Where: The Gallery of Light, DUCTAC

Laguna Waterpark
Burrowed in the heart of Dubai’s retro beachfront destination, Laguna overlooks the sea on one side and Dubai’s skyline on the other. Its best bits are the lazy pool filled with splashing surprises as well as the surf experience, WaveOz180 FloRider – it’s only available in two other locations across the globe. When the time comes to unwind, there are a number of cabanas overlooking the sea, while the Surf Club offers roof-top dinning with a beautiful view of city’s skyline.

The Burj Club
Grab a pool float from The Rooftop and glide across the pool as you overlook panoramic views of the entire city. With an exclusive angle of The Dubai Fountain and Burj Khalifa, this scene is to die for. And just when you think it can’t get any better, get this, there’s a live BBQ station and we’ll bet the weather is probably cooler up there too. The Burj Club offers the entire package, from a gym to a spa and to a rooftop pool.
Where: Burj Khalifa, Downtown Dubai
When: 7pm-9pm, Fridays
Price: From AED295

Anantara Spa
The lavish two-storey spa features palatial hammam facilities – think marble floors, trickling fountains and brightly coloured mosaics – for men, women and couples. We recommend the Turkish hammam body escape treatment. After a steam and skin-renewing scrub with a kese mitt, your skin will be slathered in dollops of shea butter enriched with Argan oil. Its AED800 for 90 minutes.
