Adventures & Activities
Discover the best of Dubai, on sand, sea and bustling city streets
A resort and city of discovery
Secluded on the sandy shores of the Arabian Gulf, our world-class resort has no shortage of activities, both on and off site. Play a round of golf at one of the region’s celebrated courses, or take the plunge and try water skiing and kayaking from our stretch of beach. Reserve one of our intimate excursions to see Dubai from an insider’s perspective – from the rolling dunes of the Dubai desert, to the city’s traditional bazaars.
Among the dunes
A natural phenomenon, Dubai’s deserts will captivate and intrigue. Let us show you the secrets behind the dunes, retracing the steps of the Bedouins. Climb aboard your camel and join the caravan to a sunset mezze and falconry demonstration. Our local guides will show you a side of Dubai you’ll never forget.
Find your thrill
A city of record-breakers, Dubai will take you to new heights. From the incredible sky-high observation deck of the world’s tallest structure, the Burj Khalifa, to the breathtaking experience of sky-diving over the Dubai Marina, there’s something to push your limits.
Make a splash
In the Arabian Sea
Embrace the Arabian Gulf’s calm seas and sunny weather with an array of water sports, including complimentary kayaking and rowing for our guests. Those who want to go a little faster, try your hand at water skiing and learn to slalom through the wakes. Once you come back to shore, there’s always time for a game of beach volleyball or three.
Indulge in endless golf
Dubai’s sub-tropical climate and diverse collection of golf courses make it a dream destination for golfers. Whether amateur or elite, you’ll find the perfect course just a few minutes’ drive from One&Only Royal Mirage. With 10 golf courses to choose from in Dubai, you’re moments away from two of the very best at Emirates Golf Club, home to the prestigious PGA Dubai Desert Classic. Let our concierges put together the perfect itinerary for you, taking in spectacular views of Dubai as you embark on a bespoke golfing holiday.
Spend a day at Atlantis Aquaventure
Take the plunge at Aquaventure Waterpark at nearby Atlantis, The Palm. The UAE’s top marine and water park experience has something for all ages, from exciting rides and slides to charming animal encounters. Meet the residents of Dolphin Bay and Sea Lion Point, before floating in your inner-tube through two kilometres of lazy river rapids. The Lost Chambers Aquarium is home to an incredible 65,000 marine creatures, a serene aqua experience.
Bask at the beach club
A chic infinity pool is the centrepiece of DRIFT, our stylish beach club with enviable views of the Dubai Marina skyline. Spend a day unwinding by the water’s edge in your sun lounger, before indulging in a late lunch at Dubai’s coolest beach club. The restaurant menu offers Mediterranean favourites, featuring fresh flavours and organic ingredients, and lush cocktails to get you into holiday mode.
Curated for couples
Take the time to reconnect during a couple's spa treatment, delight in a romantic meal for two under the stars, or find a secluded spot to lounge and soak up the sun.
