The Walk is currently undergoing project work to increase the range of leisure facilities available, and this luxury five star hotel is also undergoing some work in some parts of the establishment.

Guests can also gain access to the Jebel Ali Golf Resort and nearby beach with complimentary beach kits supplied by the conscientious staff. Guest rooms are furnished to a high standard with balcony/terrace, climate control, cable television and connecting rooms should you wish to be within easy reach of friends or family during your stay.

Dubai has to be one of the most romantic places on earth, with luxury fine dining, rooftop bars serving champagne and oysters and stunning beaches where you can enjoy each others company with nothing more but the sound of the peaceful waves. For an additional romantic gesture, why not take a hot air balloon ride over this enchanting metropolis and into the surrounding desert. Most companies will offer you champagne flutes to toast your happiness as you’re whisked up into the air- think the flying carpet scene in Disney’s Aladdin!

With the desert within easy reach, taking a trip in a 4×4 to explore this alien terrain is a must. There’s a whole host of activities to indulge in here, from quad biking, tobogganing down the dunes, taking a camel ride or simply enjoying a bbq and some belly dancing entertainment. Trips are available throughout the day, and there are even special overnight packages should you fancy sleeping under the stars!

Golf fanatics will be in their element in Dubai, with a range of first class courses to choose from and many frequented by celebrities and professional golf players themselves. The most famous course has to be the Emirates Golf Club, and this is where the Dubai Desert Classic tournament is hosted annually. There’s a juicy $2.5 million to be won but if you don’t fancy competing you can still get tickets to watch the action should you be visiting whilst its on.
