Best All Inclusive Hotels In Dubai
Many of Dubai's resort style hotels offer all-inclusive dining options which is a great choice if you don't plan on exploring Dubai too much and opt for lounging by the pool or on the beach instead, making it great for beach holidays.
The JA Palm Tree Court in Dubai's Jebel Ali area is a great all-inclusive option, located right on the beach. This beautiful resort offers three restaurants, sports and activities and a spa, allowing you to spend most of your time, relaxing, unwinding and enjoying yourself.
If you've got a little extra cash to splash, why not upgrade to the Rixos The Palm Dubai Hotel, a five-star resort on Dubai's famous Palm Jumeirah with both guest rooms and suites. Offering views of Dubai from it's own private beach, this could be the ideal fully inclusive getaway you're after, with incredible menus offering a range of international and local dishes.
JA Beach Hotel
Well known as one of the best, luxury, all inclusive hotels in Dubai, the JA Beach Hotel sits in the south of Dubai close to the Palm Jebel Ali. With a wealth of activities on offer including a spa and wellness centre, kids club and 168-acre JA Sports Centre, there is so much to do and enjoy.
Jumeirah Beach Hotel
While the Jumeirah Beach Hotel doesn't quite offer the whole all inclusive package, it does offer a half board option, which includes breakfast, dinner and free entry into Wild Wadi Waterpark next door. The water park is a fantastically, fun day out and if you're out and about, you probably won't need lunch at the hotel anyway.
As one of the most iconic resorts in Dubai, the Atlantis Hotel might be on your list of top places to stay. Sat at the end of the Palm Jumeirah, it's certainly not the cheapest, but it is one of the most exciting. With 14 restaurants, a long list of experiences, and, of course, complimentary Aquaventure water park, Atlantis is a magical place to stay. Its Extraordinary Inclusions package includes breakfast, lunch and soft drinks at the Wavehouse, Bread Street Kitchen or The Shore, 3 course dinner, plus in resort credit and so much more.
Benefits Of An All Inclusive Holiday In Dubai
One of the best ways to save on your all-inclusive holiday is to book your flight and hotel together, as many holiday companies will offer a discount for doing so. Direct flights to Dubai depart from across the UK, including regional cities like Newcastle, Glasgow and Edinburgh, some of which are overnight flights, meaning you can leave the UK after work, land in Dubai in the morning, and have a whole day on holiday still ahead of you, having saved on a nights accommodation in Dubai.
If you don't feel you'll get your money's worth on an all-inclusive holiday, your preferred hotel may also offer a half board basis so that you don't feel guilty about heading out into Dubai to enjoy some of the worldwide cuisine at the numerous restaurants on offer. This is especially true if it's your first time to the Emirate and you want to get out and explore, visiting places like the Dubai Fountains, Burj Khalifa, trying out a desert safari or visiting one of the many shopping malls.
At the time of writing, the currency exchange rate between GBP and AED (United Arab Emirates Dirham) wasn't great and alcohol prices in the city can also be quite high, so booking a flight & hotel option with food and drink included can be a really money saver, especially if you're travelling as a family with kids.
All Inclusive Emirates Holidays
Not only are they an award-winning airline, Emirates also offer their own range of package holidays to Dubai, including all-inclusive options for those who don't want to have to worry about dining out and spending more money than planned. Booking all inclusive with Emirates, you'll find that you will get your flights, hotel and sometimes transfers included, as well as your meals, of course. Packaging it up together means when you've got a budget, you can stick to it, but you still have the option to explore the restaurants in other nearby hotels, or popular Dubai hotspots like Jumeirah Beach, Souk Al Bahar and Mall of the Emirates.
Emirates Holidays is part of dnata Travel, a tour operator in the UK which is both ABTA and ATOL protected, meaning its package holidays to Dubai are financially protected. It uses it's direct flights with Emirates and packages them up with hotels, so that holidays to Dubai from Glasgow and Edinburgh are affordable and easy.
