There are some famously extravagant hotels here – some are landmarks in their own right, and some with their own tourist attractions, such as water parks. Dubai isn’t the place for budget family holiday accommodation – and even if there was some, you’d be missing the point of coming here. Scroll down for our handpicked family hotels and resorts in Dubai.

For an escape from the city, head for the JA Hatta Fort Hotel, a retreat in the Hajar Mountains about an hour from Dubai, close to Hatta Pools (see Overview). It has swimming pools, including one for children, a playground and kids’ activities.
