Back to School in the UAE

17 Sep 2018

It’s time to make the most of your weekends together with your kids in Dubai. Here are some of our top 5 fun-filled activities where you can spend quality time with your family, but don’t forget to make the most of Premier Inn’s cash-saving family-friendly deals, which let you treat your little ones for less. 

1)    Discover a world of adventure

IMG Worlds of Adventure is the world’s largest indoor theme park and just the place to spark your kids’ creative imagination at the weekend. Here, you’ll enjoy heaps of immersive activities designed to keep all ages entertained. You and the kids can enjoy adrenaline-packed rides with your favourite Marvel superheroes, roar back in time to meet dinosaurs in the prehistoric Lost Valley Zone, and see your favourite Cartoon Network characters come to life.

Premier Inn makes it even easier to have fun at IMG Worlds of Adventure. Guests staying at Premier Inn Dubai Silicon Oasis can enjoy a free shuttle to IMG Worlds of Adventure.

2)    Go wild for the weekend

Nurture your child’s love of nature with a trip to Dubai Safari, which re-opens again in October after a break for the summer. Here you can find out more about our local Arabian wildlife as well as wild animals from around the globe and experience the world’s first drive-through crocodile enclosure. There are a staggering 10,000 creatures living in a huge 119-hectare park. Luckily, electric vehicles are hand to whisk you around in an environmentally-friendly way. Premier Inn Dubai Silicon Oasis Hotel is handily located close to Dubai Safari, making it simple to head back again the next day to continue your animal encounters.

3)    Chill out

Kids love the snow: fact. But there’s no need to head to the skies to fly to a European or USA winter ski resort to make the most of the white stuff. Instead, if you’re staying at the Premier Inn Dubai Ibn Battuta Mall Hotel you’re just a short metro ride away from The Mall of the Emirates and the snow-globe world of Ski Dubai. Hire coats, skis, and snowboards for all ages or meet the penguins before warming up with a hot chocolate. The metro station is just a short walk at either end, and most children will enjoy the metro ride almost as much as the skiing itself.  

4)    Dubai Parks and Resorts

For the ultimate fun-filled weekend head to Dubai Parks. You’ll need at least a weekend to experience it all. Immerse yourself in the all-singing, all-dancing world of Bollywood, let imaginations run wild with your favourite Dreamworks characters at Motiongate Dubai, or let the kids experience LEGO building on a huge scale at LEGOLAND. Situated beside the E11 Sheikh Zayed Road, it’s an easy 20-minute drive or taxi journey from Premier Inn Ibn Battuta Mall Hotel.

5) Swimming pools that will float your boat

Make the most of the perfect temperatures to splash around in the pool or sea with your family. Whether they’re taking their first strokes towards learning to swim or perfecting their front crawl, all our Premier Inn Dubai hotels have swimming pools. If you stay at Premier Inn Dubai Investments Park Hotel, you can also take advantage of the free shuttle bus to JBR beach for a dip in the sea.
