Short term hotel rentals: your Dubai layover guide

25 January 2023

Planning to make the most of your layover in Dubai? Savoy Dubai offers short-term hotel rentals for families, couples or those flying solo. With so much to see and do in this glamorous city, it’s important to have a perfectly planned itinerary for your layover so you can make the most of your time before your next departing flight.


If you’re spending a night or two in Dubai, stay comfortable in our fully furnished hotel apartments and get ready to explore the city like never before. Without further ado, here’s the ultimate guide for exploring Dubai during your stopover.


Visit the Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa

If you’re strapped for time, then a visit to one of the biggest malls in the world and the world’s tallest skyscraper is a must. Once you’ve checked in for your short-term hotel rentals at Savoy, hop into a taxi or one of the metros within walking distance of our aparthotels, head to the Dubai Mall, and get ready to window shop or buy a souvenir while in the city. Don’t miss the incredible waterfall display while there!


Next, make your way to the world record-breaking Burj Khalifa to take in Dubai from a bird’s eye view. Trek to the top and enjoy scenic city views from its observation deck for an unforgettable encounter.


Marvel at the Dubai Fountain

Taking place every evening, the Dubai Fountain is free of charge and draws in hundreds of spectators as it puts on a magical music and light performance. To really make the most of your experience (if you don’t mind the fee), opt for a cruise along the Burj Lake, one of the most popular activities in the city. Just make sure to get your tickets in advance!


Visit the Dubai Aquarium

If you plan a trip to the Dubai Mall, be sure to visit the Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo. While you can see the aquarium from within the mall itself, it counts to buy a ticket and go inside for an otherworldly experience. Just make sure to buy your ticket in advance since the queue can grow longer by the minute.


Cruise along the Dubai Creek

If opting for short-term hotel rentals at Savoy, then a visit to the historic saltwater creek known as the Dubai Creek is vital. Enjoy a stroll along the creek before hopping onto an abra, a traditional motorised boat used by locals for decades on end. The best part? It costs just AED 1 to enjoy this memorable experience.


Sip on tea at the Arabian Tea House

Enjoy unique blends of tea at the highly popular Arabian Tea House, where many of the locals enjoy some downtime. Seat yourself in the courtyard and don’t forget to tuck into the mouth-watering Emirati pastries and sweets during your visit. If you’re a stickler for coffee, then try out a piping hot cup of traditional Arabic coffee. Their mint lemonade also comes highly recommended.


Make a trip to the Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood

Situated in one of Dubai’s oldest neighborhoods, Al Fahidi will give you a taste of what life was like before Dubai became the cosmopolitan city it’s known as today. Follow the winding streets and explore a range of cultural activities, art galleries, museums and other exciting attractions. You’ll also get to see the old-world architecture and wind towers during your visit.


Snap a picture at the Dubai Frame

This life size frame is another major attraction in Dubai, and it tells a story too. Reimagine the past, present and future of the renowned Emirate before you take a few pictures with the city as your glistening backdrop.
