Where to Stay On Your Layover In Dubai

Looking to take a few days break in between flights?  We know you will be thinking about where to stay on your layover in Dubai.

We have found some amazing places to unwind and relax before your onward journey to Europe. A two to three day layover in Dubai can allow you to catch up on some sleep, relax and maybe even do a spot of shopping. This will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to take on your European adventure.


Palazzo Versace Dubai


Versace Dubai


The luxurious Palazzo Versace has it all. With three outdoor pools where you relax and catch up on that lost sleep, a day spa that is complimentary to all guests . We recommend the shower that emanates a Caribbean storm- yes, thunder and lightning included! You will also find a heated stone bed which will soothe those aches and a steam room and sauna to eliminate all of those toxins from your body. Here you can unwind by the pool, sip on a refreshing cold drink and let the humming of the plane escape you.

The foyer/lounge area is gorgeous, with music from the grand piano playing in the background. You can sit down to an Arabic coffee and try out their Tiramisu. Offering 24 hour check in – that’s right, even if your plane arrives early you can check into your room,-none of this 3pm business! You won’t be disappointed when you arrive to your room.  Rooms offer marble bathrooms with rain showers, centrally controlled lights and even electric curtains, just clap your hands and relax, everything is taken care of.

If you’d like to get out and about, the Palazzo Versace does offer a complimentary shuttle to the malls, you could also take a tour of Dubai or simply stroll the Dubai Creek area to soak up the local Arabic culture.   If you’d like to know what tours you can do when visiting, make sure you ask us at Melbourne Travel Project. 



Sofitel Dubai the Palm Resort & Spa

Sofitel Dubai


Wanting to stay closer to the Palm? Even better, on the Palm? Our next pick would be the gorgeous Sofitel Dubai the Palm Resort & Spa. Discover the warm Polynesian welcome of Sofitel Dubai The Palm, a luxury 5 star beach resort on the world’s famous island Palm Jumeirah. Long white sandy beaches, the turquoise waters of the Arabian Gulf and touches of French elegance everywhere – you will leave the Sofitel Dubai relaxed, revived and restored.

It’s here where you can literally drop your bags and flop onto a sun lounge.  With access to your own private beach the resort feels a million miles away from being in a city such as Dubai.  In the General Managers own words, “A luxury island retreat where chic Polynesian design combines with French flair. A unique 5-star beach resort on Dubai’s man made island of Palm Jumeirah.”

We recommend booking one of the suites.  They come with a gorgeous bath tub that you can sit back in and read your favourite book.
