Centara Mirage Beach Resort opens family hotel on Deira Island in Dubai


Located a little off the coast of Dubai, the Deira Islands are four newly created islands that only started welcoming residents and opening their first hotels in December 2020. It is now setting itself apart by opening the Centara Mirage Beach Resort Dubai, the first hotel in Dubai by Centara, the first family hotel group in Thailand.

Steps from Souk Al Marfa market, the hotel is focused on the family experience. Up to two children can stay and eat free with each reservation. Which, admittedly, is pretty accommodating on its own, but it’s far from the only thing that makes Centara famous. The hotel is designed as a vibrant fusion of Thai and Arabian adventures, with brightly colored elephant statues and murals placed throughout. Over 600 rooms are available at the hotel, each with views of the Dubai city skyline or the sparkling waters of the Arabian Gulf.

The resort features a huge water park, complete with slides, stone jump points, a man-made river, and a seaside swimming pool in which to expend your pent-up energy. They also have an outdoor playground and an aerial obstacle course. For indoor fun, kids can explore the three age-appropriate kids’ clubs (including one for teens) and a candy-themed spa.

Families looking to rejuvenate can unwind at the Mirage Family Lounge, where they can relax on bean bags and play games, or visit the luxurious Spa Cenvaree where they can enjoy a classic Thai massage. There is also a wide range of culinary options, from authentic Thai dishes in Suna Bua, to Argentinian grills at Uno Mas, to Lebanese mezzes in Sheesh, among others.

Prices start at $ 160 per night including breakfast.
