The end of the month always means deadlines are upon us and our extra-shot latte intake is at an all-time high. Luckily we have two days to relax and recover for the week ahead. Here’s what we’ll be doing this coming weekend.

Get cultural…


Don’t miss out on the opportunity for a little culture at Art Dubai this year.

In its seventh edition, Art Dubai is hosting 75 galleries from 30 different countries with around 40million dollars worth of art! There are also special projects going on and performances by international and regional creatives.

The Abraaj Group Art Prize winners and Global Art Forum winners have also been unveiled and we’ve heard they include some seriously impressive pieces of work.

What’s more if you haven’t been lucky enough to visit DIFC or Al Quoz for Art Week it’s still not to late either! With over 40 new exhibitions and projects you’re spoilt for choice. Highlights include Beirut Art Beat in DIFC and Marilyn exhibition in Al Quoz here

Spa time…


LIME Spa at Desert Palm is a hidden gem away from all the hustle and bustle of skyscraper city life. Nestled in the tranquil setting of Desert Palm, they have recently launched a new spa menu full of uber relaxing treatments and packages.

We’ll be treating ourselves to the signature treatment, K-lift technology that uses Caviar and Pearl extracts. We’ve already tried the K-Lift facial, which instantly left us with a fresher complexion, and might we add, a few less lines! A result in our eyes.

Packages start from Dhs550

Get away…


There’s nothing quite like a little weekend away and The Cove in Ras Al Khaimah is our top pick this month.

The Cove is Rotana’s first property in RAK and they made sure to embrace Arabian culture reflected in their luxurious interiors and setting.

With over 600m of pristine white sand overlooking the Arabian Gulf, an incredible spa and six dining spots, there is plenty to enjoy at this sprawling resort.

The hotel is split with 204 rooms and 79 villas, which include 1, 2 and 3 bedrooms. Making it the perfect place to stay as a couple or with a group of friends and family.

We’ll be found at the beach bar, fruity cocktail in hand, basking in the sun – bliss.
