Dh and I are thinking of going to Dubai, but need to go before September. He thinks the summer will be stinking hot there - does anyone have any idea what is the latest we could go? Or any tips on where to stay?
Dh and I had the most fantastic holiday there. I loved it. If you want to push the boat out and really really spoil yourself then go for the Al Maha resort about 20 mins from Dubai itself. The best place I have ever been - really luxurious desert resort and spa (7 star!) and very very romantic. We also stayed at the Jumeirah Beach club which was fab.
DH and I were there for a few days at the end of our honeymoon - definitely worth going to, but it is REALLY hot in the summer - 43 degrees in July when we were there. As we were only there for 4 days we didn't mind too much, but for a longer stay it would have been unbearbale. May is probably better though, I think we would have enjoyed even more if it hadn't been so hot. We stayed at the Jumeirah Beach hotel (don't think I've spelt that right) the one shaped like a wave overlooking the Burj al Arab and it was great.
I went to Dubai with a bunch of friends beginning of June last year. We loved it. It was v hot about 40 degrees, but to be honest it didn't bother us. We mostly had breakfast, out by pool or beach to sunbathe .. dip in the pool/sea to cool off and sip ice cold drinks.
Later, back to hotel to shower, change and out early evening .. sight-seeing, great shopping malls, dinner, club etc
