Luxury indulgences are a rare experience for the majority. But for the inhabitants of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), luxury is an inherent part of their lifestyle. People from the UAE are happy to spend on big brands and are unapologetic about their lifestyle choices. As a traveler, you can experience the same opulence and glamor on your next trip to the UAE.

Here’s presenting the ultimate cheat sheet on luxury in the UAE:

Luxury Hot-Spots

The UAE is a federation of seven emirates, namely Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras al-Khaimah, Sharjah and Umm al-Quwain. Out of the seven, the capital city of Abu Dhabi and Dubai are the most popular tourist centres, followed by Sharjah. The crème de la crème of the world have set up their businesses and built their homes in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Needless to say, the hottest luxury attractions of the UAE can be found in these cities. Check out the Burj Khalifa, Palm Jumeirah, Gold and Diamond Park & Museum, and the famous sail-shaped Burj Al Arab in Dubai. A visit to Yas Island, Ferrari World, and the Emirates Palace will give you a glimpse into Abu Dhabi’s magnificent world.

Lavish Resorts

The UAE is home to some of the finest luxury resorts in the world. The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort in Abu Dhabi comes with a splendid view of the blue ocean, Jacuzzis, and a private beach. The Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort & Spa, Four Seasons, and the Sheraton Jumeirah Beach Resort are three of the best luxury resorts in Dubai. If you wish to discover the opulent side of Sharjah, then book your stay at the Ramada Sharjah, Coral Beach Resort, or the Dalouk Spa.

The Best and Biggest Brands

Right from the most expensive bags to the classiest cars, the UAE is the luxury and retail heaven of the world. You will find all the prominent luxury brands in Dubai Mall, Mall of the Emirates, and the Ibn Battuta Mall in Dubai. Abu Dhabi’s best shopping destinations include the Yas Mall, Abu Dhabi Mall and Marina Mall. If you are a smart shopper with an eye for antiques and local art, then reserve a day to visit the souqs and boutique heritage shops. You might discover a spectacular (and expensive) piece of art lying around in a dusty corner.

Recreational Activities for the Wealthy

Once you have decided to experience the UAE’s way of living, don’t shy away from going all the way. The Emiratis’ love for high-end cars is known to everyone. Therefore, instead of regular sedans, rent a luxury car like an Audi, Mercedes, or Cadillac to drive around the city like the residents do. Premium car rentals offer a fleet of luxury cars on hire to visitors. Other activities that you can indulge in are getting gold facials, ocean cruising on a yacht, private helicopter rides, hot air balloon rides, horse and camel rides, and private dinner on the Burj al Arab Helipad.
