Itinerary idea in detail

Private customized tour. Ask us about booking your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • You’ll be met at Dubai airport and escorted to your private car where a driver will transfer you to your hotel close to the city’s polo grounds. Your hotel, Jumeirah Creekside, is a lavish property with contemporary Arabian decor and more than 200 works of art.

  • Today take a privately guided tour of the highlights of the city. You’ll drive along Beach Road to see Jumeirah Mosque and Zabeel Palace and take a local water-taxi across to Dubai Creek to visit the spice and gold souqs. This afternoon, you could take a high-speed elevator to the exclusive 148th floor of the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, for panoramic views over the city, before spending the evening watching the choreographed performance of the Dubai Fountain from one of the waterside restaurants.

  • Leaving your hotel early in the morning, you’ll travel into the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve for a 4x4 drive across the rolling dunes. After, take a slower pace by enjoying a camel ride before a traditional breakfast served in the middle of the vast Arabian Desert. After some time back at your hotel to relax, you might like to spend the afternoon exploring Dubai’s waterfront strip lined with shops and stylish cafés.

  • This morning you will be met by your private driver who will take you to the airport to catch your flight to Malé. On arrival, you will board a speedboat that will take you to your luxury resort for a week of secluded relaxation. Your resort, Huvafen Fushi, is an indulgent castaway island with just 44 spacious rooms, each with their own private plunge pool.

  • Today you might want to begin your week’s relaxation with a treatment in Lime, the world’s first underwater spa. You can enjoy a massage or facial, using locally sourced ingredients, while shoals of fish shimmer around you.

  • Today you might don your snorkel and explore the nearby coral gardens. You could take an underwater photography course or learn more about the reef’s biodiversity on a tour with a marine biologist. There’s also a PADI-standard diving school with a range of courses available.

  • If you’re feeling like being a little more active today, you could try one of the many water sports available, including wakeboarding, sailing or windsurfing.

  • From freshly prepared sushi at Japanese restaurant Feeling Koi, to wood-fired pizza under the palm trees at beachside restaurant Forno, there are plenty of world-class dining options to sate your appetite. You could also take a cooking lesson or try wine tasting today.

  • Although each room has a private plunge pool, you might prefer to spend today lazing by the large infinity pool, which overlooks the Indian Ocean and sip cocktails at the poolside bar.

  • Make your last day in the Maldives special by booking a private dining experience. You can picnic on your own private sandbar, enjoy a candlelit dinner on the beach or dine on a traditional dhoni (wooden sailing boat).

  • You will be transferred by speedboat back to Malé in time for your flight home.
