Up, Up and Away with Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah

Sponsored by

Let a hot air balloon lift you skywards for unforgettable views of the expansive desert at sunrise

With dramatic views of the Arabian Gulf on one side and the vanilla sands and space age skyscrapers of Dubai on the other, just being on the ground of the man-made Palm Jumeirah is exhilarating. But taking to the skies in a hot air balloon is an exclusive experience that, literally, lifts the senses to a whole new level. The hot air balloon ride is just one part of an ultra-exclusive experience that can be arranged by the hotel’s concierge. In a world first, guests also enjoy front-row seats to an exclusive show of the ancient art of falconry whilst they’re in the air! With the sweeping vistas of the city, desert and ocean below, the balloon safely takes guests to a Bedouin camp for a gourmet breakfast before a wildlife drive through the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve in vintage Land Rovers. Combining luxury, exclusivity, raw nature and unparalleled style into just one morning, this is an experience which marks Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah as a hotel that believes in creating extraordinary moments from the very moment you check in.
