Feeling like you’re stuck in a sand rut? And want to ditch your usual routine for a stay cay with the perks of sun, sand, snow and shopping? A place that removes the usual faff of airports and long journeys? Kempinski Mall of the Emirates is the perfect combination of unrivalled luxury and an unforgettable urban adventure.

Swap your morning cuppa in the kitchen for a five star stay in one of their 375 elegantly appointed rooms and suites, all with stunning skyline views. Or, if you’re feeling fancy, book one of their 20 exclusive Aspen Chalets – think cosy alpine vibes with a touch of Dubai glitz overlooking Ski Dubai, perfect for creating snow-tastic memories with the little ones.

For an upgrade, the Aspen Pool Chalet has direct access to two magnificent outdoor infinity pools, complete with a personal butler service, king sized beds, separate living room, bedroom and gorgeous bathroom complete with the very best pampering products.

Family Fun Awaits

If you get cabin fever, there’s no need to worry about wrestling the kids into car seats or battling taxi queues, Kempinski is directly connected to the Mall of the Emirates, so you’ll have a world-class shopping and entertainment haven right at your doorstep.

But this hotel isn’t just about shopping (although, let’s be honest, who can resist a bit of retail therapy?). Catch the latest blockbusters at their private 15-seater cinema, or take a dip in one of the stunning outdoor infinity pools. There’s even a complimentary Kids Club to keep the little ones entertained while you recharge.

Feeling hungry? 

Kempinski Mall of the Emirates has a fabulous selection of restaurants to keep everyone happy. Feeling a fiesta? Salero Tapas & Bodega will have you saying “olé” in no time, with their hot and cold style sharing plates (including pork dishes) and Paella options of seafood, lobster, black, chicken and veggie.

Get your pinkies at the ready with an afternoon tea experience at Aspen Café. It’s served with the London Tea Exchange’s premium tea blends and chosen by the hotel’s expert sommelier, all perfectly paired with scones, desserts and savoury treats.

Hidden away on the rooftop is Eugène Eugène, a stunning oasis and greenhouse-inspired French brasserie. You can tuck into delicious dishes like Taleggio cheese roasted whole baby chicken with pomme puree and red fruit pavlova.

If you fancy a feast from the East, check out Xu’s Cantonese cuisine with a Southeast Asian vibe, serving up dishes such as charcoal-grilled Wagyu beef ribeye with spicy peanut sauce, the classic sweet and sour chicken and dim sum.

And if you need a break from the mini-me’s, treat yourself to some “me-time” at the SENSASIA Stories spa – you deserve it!
