With heritage, culture and modern knowhow, Dubai Creek Resort is the spot that keeps giving

Built in 1993, when Dubai was a desert with just a smattering of buildings, Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club quickly made a name for itself on the scene. With an 18-hole golf course and memorable sail-shaped clubhouse that still stands today, time has been good to this institution. Some 28 years on, Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club has merged with the Park Hyatt Dubai to create Dubai Creek Resort, a lifestyle destination like no other in the city. With exciting activities, dreamy places to stay, and decadent food to eat, Dubai Creek Resort harnesses the nostalgia from yesteryear, along with the excitement of today to promise a well-rounded good time.

Set back from the city, among verdant plant life, there’s a unique holiday feel when you check-in to either of the two hotels here. Choose from the spacious four-bedroom villas of Dubai Creek Resort, which overlook the golf course and come with a private swimming pool. Or check-in to one of the 223 elegant rooms of Park Hyatt Dubai, which promise Creek views and luxury amenities.

For those who get their kicks from hitting a ball across green fields, the 18-hole Dubai Creek Golf Course is a must-visit. Seasoned pros will want to take their swings on The Championship Course, while beginners will enjoy taking lessons at the Peter Cowen Golf Academy, which is part of Dubai Creek Academies. It’s at the Academies that you can also try your hand at tennis, padel tennis, or up your fitness in the FitLab.

Renowned for its world-class restaurants, choosing where to dine is the biggest challenge you’ll face here. New, Cinnamon Baazar by Chef Vivek Singh is an experience for the senses. From the vibrant interiors to modern Indian flavours, the restaurant has quickly earned its place on Dubai’s foodie scene. Also revered is Boardwalk — which turns 27 this month — a seafood restaurant with a luxury Mediterranean feel. For decadent Thai dishes, there’s The Thai Kitchen, while NOÉPE serves up Japanese Peruvian and Brasserie Du Park delights with modern French bites.
