Friday is a welcome retreat for many, as it accords the time and space to rejuvenate one’s self for the following week.

Therefore, it is only fair to use the time well to prioritise health and well-being.

Dubai offers a string of opportunities to do just that. From scrumptious spreads to spa offerings, a host of places offer the opportunity to reset.

Depending on the type of person you are, you may want to skip this step, but you can never go wrong with starting your day off with some yoga. Core Direction offers various yoga classes throughout the day for both beginners and experts. Their yoga classes are all offered at unique locations, including at the top of the Burj, The Beach JBR, Dubai Opera Garden, and Green Planet.

Zen Yoga, which has locations from Media City to The Springs, offers a variety of yoga classes as well as a foundations class that explores the foundations of yoga.

This could be your ‘me-time’, which could potentially include a secluded cup of coffee, finishing that last episode you’ve been meaning to, practice some self-care or soaking in the relaxing energy.

Early Afternoon
It’s now time for lunch, or better, brunch. Friday brunch is a must-do on your relaxing day off, and luckily, Dubai is known for it.

La Carnita at the Intercontinental Hotel, Dubai Marina offers up a Mexican fiesta every Friday from 1pm- 5pm, starting at Dhs190 per person.

The Zeitaku Brunch at 99 Sushi Bar & Restaurant, Dubai Address Hotel offers a satisfying 11-course brunch all served plate-by-plate for Dhs399 per person.

Late Afternoon 
No relaxing day is complete without a trip to the spa.

Amara Spa, Park Hyatt Dubai gives you exclusive access to their pool when you use the spa. Enjoy a lymphatic draining face massage or a 90-minute deep tissue massage.

It’s time for some fun. Head to happy hour with some friends and enjoy some good company coupled with great deals.

After happy hour, it’s time to eat dinner. Depending on the cuisine you prefer, Dubai has an enviable spread of F&B offerings, from Japanese to Italian.

Late Night
After a fully accomplished day, it’s time to head home and get some much-deserved sleep. One could read a book, meditate or call it a day by relaxing before you hit the sack.
