5. Get fit on water

Nikki Beach Hotel and Resort now has a new way to get fit. Enjoy a gentle pilates class with yoga-inspired stretches as the sun goes down. Relax and listen to the waves crashing against the nearby shore, while you balance on a SUP board in the pool. All abilities are welcome as trainer Sophie will make modifications for you if you’re unable to pull off the move. Classes run every Tuesday between 6pm and 7pm, and you’ll need to book in advance.

6. Enjoy drinks at this botanical terrace

Nestled within DIFC, Indochine Dubai offers lunch and dinner served within its beautifully designed venue, and the soon-to-reopen outdoor terrace. The terrace is a botanical masterpiece, with cascading greenery creating a fairytale ambience. Beneath the green canopy is a small selection of cosy tables, from which to enjoy drinks, dinner or a leisurely lunch. The hidden oasis has been off-limits in recent weeks, but now that the weather is becoming more balmy, we can enjoy its leafy atmosphere from Saturday October 20.
