Last minute Christmas and New Year in Dubai

So it’s finally here, we’re on the home stretch into Christmas and so grateful to be in Dubai! Not only do we have beautiful sunshine and amazing venues to celebrate the festive season, but we also have so many amazing ways to make the season easier.

We talked about party pampering preparations last week, and you can prevent yourself from getting re-stressed again by getting your whole Christmas dinner arranged for you. And we’re not just talking turkey takeaways – you can get hams, desserts, and puddings, as well as some stunning festive hamper gifts! There are huge amount of Boxing Day specials to enjoy from Boxing Day Breakfasts at Accents, to PicNic's at the Westin as well so many other ways to get in the the festive mood from festive markets to carol singing. We have a whole selection of our favourites from across Dubai on our Facebook and Pinterest pages, so make sure you check them out!

We also love some of the music selections available on YouTube. We were getting a little tired of hearing the same Now Christmas album on repeat, but have discovered a whole treasure trove of musical compilations for anything from 2 hours to 8 hours of pure festive jingles!  So no need to keep getting up and changing the music, you can keep the perfect backdrop!

YouTube’s musical backdrops could be useful for anyone choosing to celebrate New Year at home too, although we’re looking forward to getting out and celebrating on the town – we just need to make a decision about where we go!

There are so many options available this year: Less conventional healthy options at Waterfront, Jumeirah Beach Hotel; a Great Gatsby gala dinner at The Address Montgomerie; an evening brunch at Reform Social & Grill; a snow party at Legends, Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club; a glam rock disco at Wafi; great views of the fireworks from a number of locations at Madinat Jumeirah, Jumeirah Beach Hotel and in Downtown Dubai; and the old school new years eve parties at the likes of Media One Hotel, Meridien Mina Seyahi, The Westin and more. The Westin and more. Dubai really is your Festive Playground!

To recover there are also plenty of places offering New Years Day brunches, lunches and dinners to make sure you start 2016 the way you mean to go on too! 

There’s a lot happening in the next two weeks, and hopefully you are all set for the most social time of the year, but if you do need a little help to socialize smarter, we have a huge number of the festive deals, events and offers across Dubai here.

From all the team at CitiSpi, we wish you a fantastic Christmas and New Year and can’t wait to see you all in 2016!
