How to Relax after a Day’s Work in Dubai

Ways To Relax in Dubai

Underwater Yoga at  Lost Chambers Aquarium

The words of Dolly Parton, “Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life” resounds to be true in this age. Almost every where in the world, people are leading busy lives, giving very little time for rest and relaxation. The city of Dubai is a centre for business where people from all around the world live and work. Thousands of people visit the city for business matters, every single day. However, Dubai is a city that has been able to achieve work-life balance quite successfully. There are plenty of opportunities and avenues for corporates and businessmen to loosen their ties and relax after a tiring day at work in Dubai.

Indulge in Luxurious Spa Treatments

Who wouldn’t love a relaxing massage to loosen the knots and stress of the body, thus rejuvenating the mind and soul? If you love to indulge yourself in some relaxing spa treatments, there is no better place than Dubai for the same. Home to some of the most luxurious spas and magical treatments, you would get the ultimate massage experience in this Emirates city. The Dubai Dream treatment at The St. Regis Dubai Al Habtoor City and the Lomi Lomi Massage at the luxury resort Al Maha are some of the popular spa treatments available in the city. Dubai is also the place where you would be able to experience some unique spa treatments like hands-free spa treatment, cryotherapy sessions, floating therapy, etc.

Enjoy a Delicious Dhow Cruise Dinner

If enjoying a delicious meal is your way of relaxing, there is nothing better than the dhow cruise dinner in Dubai. The dhow cruise Dubai happens both on the Dubai Creek as well as the Dubai Marina. The dhow-cum-restaurant is decorated in Bedouin style and cruise along the creek or the marina for a little over two hours. During your time onboard, you get to enjoy the beautiful view of the city, some refreshing drinks, a delicious buffet spread and some entertainment activities. With only the sounds of the gentle breeze and the gentle convserations of the other guests, dhow cruise Dubai is the best way to sit back, relax and have a good time, after a hard day’s work.

Practice Yoga in a Unique Way

The fact that yoga is the best thing to relax you is unquestionable. Just 30 minutes of yoga everyday can de-stress you like nothing else. Moreover, in Dubai, you can indulge in this ancient exercise technique in some unique ways. Fairmont the Palm offers full moon yoga sessions, with different themes every month. Apart from this, there is underwater yoga at the Lost Chambers Aquarium in Atlantis the Palm and rooftop yoga at Jumeirah Emirates Towers. Whatever you choose, you get to experience some much needed relaxation.

Lounge on a Beautiful Beach

Not many would argue that there is nothing more relaxing than lounging on a beach, staring at the beautiful waves of the ocean. Dubai is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. If you do not want to spend too much money, you can just visit the Jumeirah Open Beach and relax by doing absolutely nothing. If you do not mind spending a small amount, you can gain entry into Jumeriah Beach Park which not only has a beautiful beach but also lush gardens, a cool barbecue area, pretty cafes, etc. This is the perfect place to have a picnic and chill.

Relaxing after a day’s work in Dubai is not difficult. All you need to do is find the time for it!
