This further drives Dubai Tourism’s commitment to actively facilitate growth in the start-up scene, fuelled by tourism-led initiatives designed to leverage new technologies built on our ‘digital, mobile and social first’ agenda. With the various industry-specific efforts currently underway to catalyse innovation across the hospitality and tourism sectors, it is imperative that we continue to work with our private and public-sector partners in achieving these shared goals. This further opens the door for emerging entrepreneurs to gain access to industry knowledge and gain valuable insights into the global market for collaboration opportunities.”

It’s fun, it’s filled with energy and it has enough glitz and glam to appeal to jetsetters from the Middle East. We’re talking, of course, about the hip hood of Seminyak.  With its cool café society, renowned restaurants, buzzing bars and cutting-edge shops, Seminyak has transformed itself into Bali’s social capital. And those in the know will be checking in to The Seminyak Beach Resort & Spa.

What’s more, they’ll also be checking in for a little longer with the resort’s special ‘Long Stay Offer.’ Guests staying for 10 nights or more will benefit from a huge array of add-ons including daily breakfast and afternoon tea, morning yoga, return airport transfers, a Balinese night buffet dinner, a Fishermen’s night buffet dinner, an After 8 drink at Klass & Brass, a 90-minute Kahyangan massage at Kahyangan Spa, a complimentary activity, an early check in and a later check out. Guests will also receive 10% off their total food and beverage bill as well as 10% off laundry and dry cleaning.

At The Seminyak Beach Resort & Spa you are afforded the best of both worlds: a calming beachfront hideaway just a hop, skip and a jump away from Seminyak’s many attractions. The resort fits flawlessly into the local fabric of the island, with lush tropical gardens keeping it rooted in tranquility. But there’s plenty of frivolity to be had here too, especially since the resort boasts some of the best restaurants and bars in town.

Listen to the waves lap against the shoreline at Sanje Restaurant & Lounge as you watch the sun slip away and say farewell to the day. Summers are all about freshly barbequed seafood so be sure to visit on Fishermen’s night where fantastically fresh platters of fish, crab and prawns are grilled to order. If you’d prefer a more jungle-like setting, then Santan Restaurant is an all-time favourite for South East Asian cuisine.

Round your night off by joining the cool cats at Klass & Brass, a Hemingway inspired lounge where you can enjoy live music.

While in Seminyak you’ll need to save some energy for shopping; this is where you’ll find all your summer resort wear. From slip dresses, romper shorts, playsuits, strappy evening dresses, cute camis, colourful kaftans, crochet cover-ups, eye catching bikinis, sandals, to woven bags and bold accessories, the boutiques in Seminyak are worthy of your hard-earned cash.

“Summer vacations, after all, equal sea, shopping and getting social,” says General Manager Michael Luible. The Seminyak Beach Resort & Spa has you covered.”

  • At the Top, Burj Khalifa and Dubai Museums Company join hands to offer exceptional value for visitors at two of Dubai’s most compelling attractions

 

Bringing exceptional value to tourists and residents in Dubai, At the Top, Burj Khalifa — the global icon by Emaar — will officially offer tickets to the Etihad Museum, a dynamic 21st century landmark that is located at the very place the UAE was founded in 1971.

Following a partnership with Dubai Museums Company, an entity of the Dubai Culture & Arts Authority (Dubai Culture), At the Top, Burj Khalifa will now sell tickets to the Etihad Museum for AED 25 per person or as a package with the At the Top, Burj Khalifa experience for only AED 155 per adult and AED 120 per child.

At the Top, Burj Khalifa has managed the retail and souvenir operations at the Etihad Museum over the past year, and will now also act as the museum’s exclusive arm for all international travel trade relations.

Ahmad Al Falasi, Executive Director – Group Operations at Emaar Properties, said: “We are honoured to partner with the Dubai Museums Company to further highlight the Etihad Museum to visitors through At the Top, Burj Khalifa. Etihad Museum offers a unique journey that familiarises visitors with the history of the UAE’s formation. Along with At the Top, Burj Khalifa, they can now understand more about our nation at the Etihad Museum, as well as experience spectacular views from Burj Khalifa, a modern monument and global icon that translates the vision of our leadership.”

Muna Faisal Al Gurg, Managing Director of the Dubai Museums Company, said: “In line with Dubai Culture’s mandate to preserve and celebrate UAE history, the Etihad Museum inspires visitors with the story of the most important moment in our nation’s history — the founding of the UAE in 1971 — through experience-driven exhibitions, interactive programmes and educational initiatives. Through our partnership with At the Top, Burj Khalifa, visitors and residents can gain new insights into our nation and the vision of our Founding Fathers to build a modern and world-class metropolis that is embodied by Burj Khalifa. This is part of our wider efforts to establish Dubai as a global and sustainable city for culture and heritage, and to bring happiness to visitors and residents by strengthening Dubai’s offering in these sectors.”

With Dubai Culture set to launch new museum experiences in the city, the partnership between The Dubai Museums Company and At the Top, Burj Khalifa is expected to further expand the scope of joint activities between the three parties.

A 25,000-square metre landmark, the Etihad Museum focuses on the history of the nation with emphasis on the period between 1968 and 1974. The visitor experience also aims to educate about the Nation’s constitution, in particular – the rights, privileges and responsibilities that it bestows upon the people of the UAE. The museum tells the story of the Union from the standpoint of the country’s leaders at the time it was founded. It includes museum exhibits materials and documents related to the events of the founding of the UAE.

Located near the Union House site — the historic site of the signing of the Union Agreement in 1971 — and near the flagpole on the Jumeirah Beach Road, the museum building is in the shape of a manuscript, inspired by the Unification Agreement, with the seven leaning columns representing the pens that signed the declaration of the constitution in 1971. The identity of the museum was also inspired by the colours of the national flag and the identity of the seven Emirates. It is open from 10am to 8pm daily.

Dubai Cruise Tourism, along with its partners DP World and Emirates Airline, has hosted a strategic familiarisation (FAM) trip for 100 top media and travel agents from Portugal and Spain. The trip forms part of the ongoing efforts of the recently formed Dubai Cruise Committee to raise the profile of Dubai as a global hub for cruising and provided this group of key industry professionals with first-hand experience of the city as a cruise destination, enabling them to write about and raise awareness of and extensively promote Dubai-based cruise itineraries in their respective markets.

As part of the trip, the Dubai Cruise Committee took the group on a tour of the world-class Dubai Cruise Terminals in Mina Rashid, demonstrating the state-of-the art facilities available at the port. Key industry insights were also provided that will assist the travel trade when selling Dubai-based cruise itineraries to clients in their home countries.

The group also had the opportunity to move outside the port and experience a variety of Dubai’s tourism offerings. Activities included everything from visits to cultural and heritage sites, to trips to modern attractions and the chance to experience Dubai’s beautiful beaches. In addition, the group was provided with unique shopping and gastronomic experiences. This diverse itinerary was designed to showcase the breadth of Dubai’s ever-expanding tourism proposition, demonstrating the destination’s appeal to all market segments.

The FAM trip was organized in conjunction with Pullmantur Cruises, a leading Spanish cruise line. Pullmantur will commence its inaugural Arabian Gulf itinerary from the 2018/2019 season with Dubai as its winter home port. The cruise line will deploy a 47,000 gross tonnage ship with a passenger capacity of over 1,800. , resulting in an additional 45,000 cruise tourists visiting the city in one season alone. The ship’s seven-night Arabian Gulf itinerary will commence from Dubai every Sunday and is scheduled to run from early December 2018 until mid-March 2019.

The FAM trip comes shortly after the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between Dubai’s strategic network of leading cruise tourism partners; Dubai Tourism, DP World UAE Region FZE, Emirates Airline, The General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs – Dubai, and Dubai Customs. This collective agreement formed the Dubai Cruise Committee and marked implementation of a collaborative framework designed to consolidate the city’s position as ‘cruise hub of the region.

Dubai is fast becoming a favoured destination amongst the international cruise lines and cruise tourists, and the Emirate welcomed over 625,000 cruise tourists to the city during the 2016/2017 season, with over half a million cruise tourists already visiting the city in this current season. Looking ahead, Dubai’s cruise industry is set for another strong performance during the upcoming 2018/2019 season, with 725,000 cruise tourists expected to be welcomed.  This performance, and the addition of Pullmantur Cruises to city’s homeporting roster, is in line with Dubai Cruise Tourism’s strategic goal of welcoming one million cruise tourists by the 2020/2021 season and serving as the winter home port for 10 of the world’s leading international cruise lines.
