PONY UP IN A PRI­VATE VILLA

Set around four lush polo fields, just 25 min­utes from Dubai’s Down­town area, The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Re­sort & Club is an homage to polo and New York’s vibrant sum­mer so­cial scene. Along with 126 rooms and suites, those seek­ing just a lit­tle more pri­vacy might opt for one of the 25 St. Regis branded vil­las, from as lit­tle as AED 2,900 for a four-bed­room villa and AED 100 for ad­di­tional break­fast buf­fet. Exquisitely fur­nished with el­e­gant dé­cor, mar­ble floors and royal win­dows, not to men­tion a pri­vate pool and un­in­ter­rupted views of the man­i­cured polo fields, the four bed­room vil­las span two floors with fully equipped kitchens, a maids’ room, and St. Regis’s leg­endary but­lers on hand to make your stay even more un­for­get­table. www.streg­is­duba­ial­habtoor­polore­sort.com

AR­RIVE AND DRIVE

Awarded the TripAd­vi­sor Cer­tifi­cate of Ex­cel­lence in 2013 and 2014, the im­pres­sive Glo­ria Ho­tel in Dubai is an icon along Sheikh Zayed Road with a lo­ca­tion that’s ideal for trav­ellers want­ing to be in the cen­tre of it all (not to men­tion the Dubai Metro hand­ily lo­cated just foot­steps from the ho­tel). Not that guests will need to use the metro, with the ho­tel’s new “Ar­rive and Drive” pack­age in­clud­ing a com­pli­men­tary rental car when book­ing a Pre­mium Suite cat­e­gory on best avail­able rate. With rates from AED 420 and a ve­hi­cle (in the realm of a Nis­san, Toy­ota et al) ar­ranged through a car rental com­pany lo­cated within the ho­tel, it’s an at­trac­tive op­tion for any­one with guests in town who want the free­dom of their own wheels. www.glo­ria-ho­tels.com
