A staycation doesn’t have to break the bank…

With the way things are this year, it’s unlikely that many of us will have our annual vacations somewhere tropical booked. With that in mind, we are looking for all of the holiday vibes a little closer to home. ‘Staycation’ is the handy phrase that’s been coined for that.

Cool hotel Zabeel House by Jumeirah, The Greens offers a number of fantastic staycation packages with lots of extras included such as spa treatments or tickets to one of Dubai’s most iconic waterparks. Better yet, they’re wallet-friendly, with prices starting from Dhs375 per couple, per night.

For those who love a little adventure, opt for the splash and stay package, which will get you an overnight stay at the urban hotel, and breakfast the next day, plus two tickets to Wild Wadi waterpark for Dh450. The rooms are comfortable and modern.

If bigger is better in your eyes, go for ‘The Ultimate Weekender’. You’ll get the perfect balance of fun and relaxation, with access to the brunch at Lah Lah, four post-brunch beverages, plus a massage at the Native Club Spa the next day, as well as access to Wild Wadi and a late-check out from the hotel.
