The Golden Mile Galleria on Palm Jumeirah has everything you need to stay entertained, well fed and much more from dawn to dusk and beyond. Here are some great reasons to check it out:
Relax and enjoy: luxury salons and sumptuous spas
Sometimes life can just get on top of you and a good pampering is the only antidote. When that happens, Golden Mile Galleria is the place to go with salons and spas galore. Take your nail game to the next level with a visit to Dial A Nail, tame those tresses at Esthetic Sense or shape up with an LPG treatment at Tips & Toes. And if nothing more than total revival will suffice, then we love the sound of the warm candle massage at SensAsia Urban Spa.
Easy shopping: Complete your look
If retail therapy is more your speed then The Golden Mile Galleria has you covered. You can refresh your wardrobe at Aldo, Beyond the Beach and Skechers or get ready for the sunny season with a new pair of stylish sunglasses from Grand Optics or Magrabi Optical. Plus, no shopping trip would be complete without a few choice accessories and cosmetics, which is where Accessorize and Le Sens De Marrakech come in handy.
Times and prices vary. For more info visit goldenmilegalleria.com
Delicious food: Get a pizza the action
Canada is known as The Great White North. It is not known, however, for its pizza pies. Pifft we scoff – open your closed mind and head to the House of Pizza, which was founded in Canada in 1995 and has been delighting with its deep dishes ever since. Of course, you have to try the porcini mushroom and truffle pizza at this hidden gem, but it also wouldn’t be truly Canadian without a good helping of poutine on the side.
Opening hours, Saturday to Wednesday 10am to 12am, Thursday and Friday 10am to 3am. hop.ae
Fun, fun, fun: keeping the kids busy
If your child is an American Ninja Warrior in training then they’d love a visit to Little Gladiators. With gymnastics, kickboxing, Kung Fu yoga and even virtual reality gaming on the schedule, this place is amazing. But wait. There’s more – it even boasts a kids’ hammam where little gladiators, fresh from doing battle, can enjoy a relaxing Turkish bath. This is spa-time! Classes start at AED 70 littlegladiators.ae.
What’s more, if the little ones have a party coming up, make sure they win best dressed in the costume category with a trip to Party Zone. Opening times – 10am to 10pm. 04 344 8464. partyzonellc.com
Tailor-made style: Suit you, sir!
Revered gents tailors Ascots & Chapels have set up shop at Golden Mile Galleria. This means that while your better half hits the shop, you can check yourself in for a fitting with a master tailor and emerge with a suit that even 007 would be proud to sport.
