How to Spend Your Mornings in Dubai

Whether you have recently relocated to Dubai, or you are already familiar with the spectacular city, be inspired by some of our favourite ways to get your day off to a fantastic start.

Breakfast in Style

Traditionally known as the most important meal of the day, your breakfast in Dubai will not fail to impress. There are a host of fantastic eateries to choose from, which boast a range of international foods in breath-taking locations. It was tough picking two favourites, but here are ours!

Eggspectations - Jumeirah Beach Residence

Whether you are planning a breakfast meeting or a leisurely morning, Eggspectations is a fantastic way to start your day, with its buzzing atmosphere and huge menu choice. The breakfast menu is so popular that, at the weekends, breakfast-goers can wait for over 30 minutes for a table, but it is certainly worth the wait. Choose from delectable Breakfast Bites, indulge in French toast and pancakes from the Gold Morning selection, or fuel yourself for the day with a signature dishes on the Great Eggspectations menu, washed down with an antioxidant-packed, hand squeezed juice from the juice bar. We’ll take a Lobster Benny: Nova Scotia Lobster on an English muffin with their world-renowned hollandaise sauce and, of course, two beautifully poached eggs.

Urban Bistro – Dubai Media City

If you are looking for food that is great for the soul as well as the environment, Urban Bistro is the place for you. Based on sustainability, and using locally produced, home-made and organic produce, at Urban Bistro you can choose from a broad range of flavours in a relaxed yet stylish environment. Menu highlights, such as the classic Urban Breakfast and the Chia seed and banana pudding strike the perfect balance between the wholesome and the indulgent, allowing you to start your day with a sustainable yet delicious treat. We’d choose paprika and parmesan topped free range, organic eggs baked in avocado served with a micro salad, and maybe a smoothie made with almond milk on the side.

18 Holes at Dawn

If you are an early riser or enjoy a round of golf away from the madding crowd, why not fit in a game of golf at sunrise? As any golf enthusiast knows, an early morning round relaxes you for the day ahead and helps you to clear your mind. If you have an early morning meeting scheduled, why not avoid the rush hour and have your meeting on the green?

Morning Safari

If you have a couple of hours free, a morning desert safari is a great way to get your adrenaline going. Bask in the cool morning breeze of the desert as you enjoy an exhilarating ride over the highest dunes, before taking to the sand yourself for quad biking, sand boarding or a camel trek. Whether you are visiting Dubai for business or pleasure or live there permanently, a morning enjoying the thrills of desert sport and taking in the incredible expanse of red dune desert is a morning very well spent.

Sunrise Rowing

Dubai is known for its heat as well as the hustle and bustle. A morning row down the Creek will show you a different side of this magnificent city. Eerily quiet and pleasantly cool, you can row down the Creek as the sun rises and the city begins to stir. Maybe after you notice that the cable-cars are immobile, or the Garhoud Bridge is silent, you will see Dubai’s iconic architecture in a different light: as art, instead of a striking backdrop to the energetic city. If you work in Dubai and are used to the fast pace and hard work associated with working in the UAE, you will appreciate these moments of tranquillity all the more; you may even stop to admire your surroundings instead of walking by with your eyes on your phone and your mind on work.
