As lockdown measures are slowly being lifted, UAE residents are now able to move freely between emirates.

Since international travel is currently out of the question, many will be looking closer to home for a getaway – us included.

So, we’ve taken the liberty to round up some staycations in the UAE. Of course, you need to ensure all precautionary measures are taken, as do establishments. If you’re thinking about a potential staycation getaway, ensure you book ahead of time.

One&Only The Palm

The Oberoi Beach Resort Al Zorah

If you’re still keen to get away from Dubai, but want to be near the coast then the Oberoi Beach Resort Al Zorah in Ajman is the place to do so, especially if you’re a couple looking for a romantic getaway.
