Whether travellers are seeking to explore the majestic desert landscape or enjoy opportunities for luxury shopping, the Four Seasons UAE Collection offers a range of incredible experiences for everyone for when the time is right, and always with well-being top of mind through Four Seasons global health and safety program, Lead With Care.”
Discover the Timeless Allure of a Desert Adventure
There are some experiences that need to be lived before we can fully appreciate or understand them. What is it like to roam over the majestic golden dunes, catching a glimpse of an oryx? What does fresh Arabic coffee roasted over the fire really smell like? What can we hear at night cocooned in the luxury of a Bedouin tent? What is it like to witness the sunrise from a hot air balloon, as the desert wakes up below? The only true way to know is to live, hear, taste, see and feel the desert for oneself.
A whole landscape and lifestyle are waiting to be explored just a short drive out of Dubai’s glamorous and vibrant city. Four Seasons can arrange a personal safari for guests, who will travel through the rolling dunes in a vintage Land Rover spotting desert animals along the way. On arrival at the private camp, guests will be immersed in Bedouin heritage with live falconry and entertainment followed by a dinner full of traditional Arabian flavours. Sleep under the stars in a private Bedouin-style tent and wake up to a sunrise hot air balloon ride followed by a traditional Emirati breakfast.
Reconnect Over a Delightful Dinner with a View
Whether travelling for a romantic getaway or family gathering, Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach has some surprises planned to help guests reconnect.

Swim with the Skyscrapers in the Heart of Dubai’s Financial District
One of Dubai’s best-hidden secrets, the rooftop pool at Four Seasons Hotel Dubai International Financial Centre offers a captivating vantage point.
