An art class during iftar, a relaxing spa treatment and a great pool day deal…
Another week is upon us and with Ramadan in full swing, its a great time to try your hand at a new activity or take some time to relax, with some fantastic deals on offer.
Here’s our pick of 8 things to do in Dubai this week.
Sunday May 19
1. Bounce yourself happy
Bounce is great fun – whether you’re looking to get some exercise or just be a big kid for the day. During Ramadan, the Al Quoz facility is offering a two-hour pass for Dhs120 when you come with family and friends. There are also extended opening hours at the moment so you can bounce as late as 12am.

2. Treat yourself to some R&R
The month of Ramadan is often a chance for people to take a little bit of time for self-care. And if you head to Park Hyatt Dubai, home to the luxurious Amara Spa, you can take advantage of the ‘Spirit of Arabia’ treatment for Dhs695. The 120-minute treatment includes an invigorating scrub and a soothing herbal compress massage. Go on, treat yourself.
