1. Food first and foremost
Finding the best food outlets was a priority. There was tacit agreement on this. Of the 521 places I checked, he shares two of the places that made me the happiest.
1. Lucia’s, Address Sky View Hotel, Downtown
To begin this fruitful journey, you need to bookmark our list of the best dining spots.I will not think twice before recommending this wonderful restaurant. It has a Mediterranean aesthetic, unobstructed views of the Burj, and delicious Italian cuisine. And there are more. It would be a sin not to try the Rigatoni Cacio & Pepe (cheese and pepper pasta). And, of course, we’ll leave some room for our next recommendation.
2. Amara, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray
If you want to experience Mughlai royal cuisine, look no further. As someone who can’t stop at a buffet breakfast before adding everything to their plate, I was full when I visited Amara for lunch. But tandoori prawns, smoked lamb chops, Bindi Achari, I had to go all in. Be sure to visit not just the food, but the hotel it sits in, the magnificent Jumeirah Zabeel Saray.
2. IG reel here? Of course!
For a long time, I was dominated by the urge to experience things without wanting to record them. Upon entering Dubai, I felt the need to capture this beauty.
1. CE LA VI Dubai
A visit to Dubai requires a must-have IG post, and the city’s affluence is such that you don’t have to work too hard to make Lille happen. But here’s a suggestion. On his 54th floor of the Address Skyview Hotel is a rooftop restaurant called CÉLA VI.
Along with the breathtaking views from the top and an infinity pool overlooking the city, there is a beautiful swing set-up that will make every IG enthusiast’s heart beat. There may or may not be a short queue to get that shot, but the feed is about to explode, so wait it out.
3. Are you planning a wedding?
Desis We’re digging into destination weddings and it’s time Dubai topped our list.With great options for all budgets and endless possibilities for unique weddings.

I like to do things in order, so I’ll start with suggestions! Imagine his one of the best attractions in Dubai, the Fountain Show. It takes place in all its glory as you question the love of your life. Exclusive spaces at The Palace Downtown host intimate gatherings in the most opulent, avant-garde set-up imaginable.
And if it’s not already on your mind, the CÉ LA VI swing also makes a perfect backdrop. Once you have decided on the location, the next step is to put the ring on. Friends, a ring is the next thing you need.
2. La Marquise
Desis You would agree that Dubai is one of the best places to shop for gold. But here you will also find Diamonds, his jewelery brand that boasts exquisite handcrafted designs. I visited their boutique in the Dubai Mall, but was stuck with her dry bank account limit and felt like a child in a candy store.
Luckily for newbies, La Marquise sales people can help you get what you really want. Because securing a life partner is one thing for him, but finding the ring is a whole other ball game.
3. The Ritz-Carlton Lovelies
People are ready to do whatever it takes to help you achieve your vision. fairy tale marriageApart from spacious and sophisticated rooms, The Ritz-Carlton has the perfect venue for an al fresco wedding. The seaside gardens surrounded by lush greenery and the scent of the sea breeze make this a truly romantic, elegant and Pinterest-worthy place. In addition, Arabian hospitality is promised.

Plus, check out the variety of creative pop-ups, art installations, and chic cafés.
I wanted to end this guide here, but I couldn’t do it without adding another simple suggestion: Experience a soothing massage before the sight-seeing days build up. Relax like royalty at the Palace Downtown Spa, which features everything from state-of-the-art technology to an oriental bathhouse. Hashtag pure bliss.
