No, this isn’t a post for the tourists; a concierge can be incredibly useful to all residents of Dubai, whether you’ve been here six months or six years. If you’re new to Dubai, you might find yourself overwhelmed by this dynamic city’s offerings, and if you’ve been here a while, you may find yourself losing touch with all the latest openings. There’s so much to see or do here, that there’ll always something new to see or do, and having a concierge with local knowledge and their finger on the pulse can make living in Dubai much more hassle-free.
What can a concierge do?
A concierge can help you make sure that you’re not missing anything. In Dubai, concierge services can help you navigate the city and get certain things done easily and quickly.
A concierge can help you book hotels, reserve restaurant tables, and make appointments at a spa, etc. They can help you book limos, taxis, boats, flights and other transportation for yourself and any business or personal visitors. They can suggest dining and entertainment venues for hosting, recommend companies for maintenance, moving and storage, professional services for business solutions and development, as well as all number of companies and services needed for life in Dubai, from doctors and dentists, to tailors, pet grooming, children’s party organisers and more.
In general, a concierge is a friendly, quick-thinking professional who knows the in’s and out’s of the city and has good contacts to make things happen. Our personal assistants also provide these Dubai concierge services as part of their supportive role.
We asked our team for their three new must-try experiences in the city at the moment:
1. Enjoying a show at the new Dubai Opera
The iconic Dubai Opera opened in 2016, seating two thousand people. So far, the venue has hosted Les Miserables, Placido Domingo, CATS and other legendary operas for sold-out shows, and there is an exciting programme confirmed for 2017. If you enjoy classical music, theatre, orchestral performances, flamenco, ballet and other classical arts, you’ll want some of the best seats at the opera house, and we can help with that.
2. Dining at a secret restaurant that requires a key
Dubai has plenty of places to enjoy fast food but the relatively new Parker’s has been sending up a social media storm with its secretive entry rules. Parker’s serves lip-smacking burgers, corn on the cob, fries and other street food with interesting twists. The most interesting twist in this restaurant is the treasure hunt to find a key to get into it. Our team can help you find one!
3. Enjoying a breakfast with falcons
Dubai’s desert safaris are well known to all, however a new safari by Arabian Adventures lets you enjoy four-hour long visits to a falconry campsite. There you can enjoy the company of these majestic birds, and follow it up with a breakfast. It’s a good idea to book this a few days in advance and we can help you do that.
