Why visit …. because there are few things in life better than staycationing in your home town or adopted city. Suddenly, everything slows and you can appreciate the beauty of your home at a leisurely pace. I was staying at the newly opened InterContinental Dubai Marina, which although just a short distance from my apartment, was a world away – a home-from-home in the heart of Dubai Marina.
Stay in …the perfectly appointed residences and suites offering sweeping views over the pool and marina. With a daytime backdrop of yachts reflected in the water and a breathtaking evening perspective of Dubai Marina’s bright lights – day or night you get a real sense of place of being in the heart of this vibrant, exciting city. With unexpected touches such as red Emperor Penguins guarding the pool and a ‘Mae West lips’ style sofa by the lift, the property is not your usual InterContinental.
