VIPs Only

Friday - - Travel News -

Be­hold an en­tire VIP ter­mi­nal at the Al Mak­toum In­ter­na­tional Airport, Dubai South. Tar­get­ing cor­po­rate or­gan­i­sa­tions, busi­ness trav­ellers and dig­ni­taries, at 5,600 sq m it’s the world’s largest fa­cil­ity for pri­vate avi­a­tion. The ter­mi­nal saw its first pri­vate jet take off in April last year, but was only of­fi­cially opened last month.

Won­der­ing what it’s like in­side? Solid oak pan­elling, screens with bronze and gold me­tal­lic fin­ish and a 1,000-piece post-mod­ern chan­de­lier in the main hall are some very im­pres­sive fea­tures of the luxe in­te­ri­ors. In the duty free, gone are the or­di­nary choco­lates and sou­venirs. In­stead, very im­por­tant pas­sen­gers will be ri­fling through in­valu­able paint­ings and arte­facts, lux­ury cars, real es­tate and su­per bikes. Very, very im­pres­sive.

At Hawthorn Suites by Wyn­d­ham JBR, VIP cul­ture gets cute with the Ju­nior VIP Ar­rival Ex­pe­ri­ence – a check-in scheme for chil­dren be­tween the ages of four and 10 that makes lit­tle ones feel grown-up with their very own reg­is­tra­tion process and key card, and keeps bore­dom and tantrums at bay dur­ing check-in. Chil­dren also get an ac­tiv­ity kit and two ‘kid­die coins’ worth Dh10 each that can be re­deemed within the four-star ho­tel’s F&B out­lets for candies and pas­tries. The Ju­nior VIP Ar­rival Ex­pe­ri­ence is free when you book a stay for your fam­ily. Call 04 399 9979 or email reser­va­tions@hs­
