As I have been traveling to Dubai since 2000, I have had the pleasure of watching the new Dubai take shape out of the desert and emerge from the water. Many luxury hotels and resorts have opened since then but space does sell out fast.
Corporate groups planning to go to Dubai this season, have just over a month to fit their trip in this season. The outdoor event season will resume in mid-October so it's time to make bookings.
The Palm Jumeirah, a modern wonder, developed by Nakheel, has transformed Dubai's coastline and significantly added to its beaches. A number of luxury beach resorts that are perfect for corporate events have opened on The Palm Jumeirah.
One, 2- and 3-bedroom suites provide panoramic views of Dubai. With rooftop or garden pools, Jacuzzi and direct access to the beach, the hotel's 5-bedroom villas deliver the ultimate in luxury.
The Bay View Penthouse is spacious enough to accommodate 80 meeting participants, 200 for receptions and 80 for dining There are also 2 boardrooms for small meetings and a number of terraces and lawn venues for outdoor events. There is a private 500-meter beach where guests can enjoy kayaking, stand up paddle surfing or just relax in the beach cabanas.
