A healthy dose of sunshine is a wonderful way to top up energy levels during the colder months. Which is why the pleasant climes and pristine shores of the Middle East beckon more than ever at this time of year. Whether you’re a seasoned sun-seeker or simply after some respite from the cold, read on for the inspiring health benefits of a warming winter escape.


The magic of Vitamin sea

Stimulate every sense with a beach retreat. Known as “Blue Space Theory”, spending time by great expanses of water is proven to be stress-relieving and restorative. The inviting temperature of the Arabian Gulf provides a wonderful opportunity for winter swimming and brisk walks along the shore, both of which are well known for their physical and mood-boosting qualities. You can keep active and build muscle tone with our exciting water-based activities at Madinat Jumeirah’s Water Sports Centre during your stay, including wakeboarding, banana boats, kayaking and windsurfing.


Boost your Vitamin D levels

Having spent an unusual period of time indoors this year, we could all benefit from a boost of Vitamin D, which is produced when our skin is exposed to direct sunlight. Just several hours in the sun can noticeably increase levels of Vitamin D, which is said to improve teeth, bone and muscle health and also helps to boost immunity. While sports and outdoor activities are often put on hold for winter in countries where daylight is reduced, the climate in the UAE is perfect for propping up your skills. Staying at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, you’ll have access to our beautiful infinity pool and a glorious stretch of private pristine beach to make the idea of a morning jog, workout or yoga session much more appealing.

Invigorating change of scene

One of the greatest benefits of being able to work remotely is the freedom to roam. In 2020, home is where the Wi-Fi is, so why not seize the opportunity to explore a new city sunny-side-up. A handful of governments, including Dubai, are already responding to this trend with extended visas for remote workers contemplating relocating. Spending time in new cultures can stimulate productivity and offer a sense of achievement in ways that our daily routine simply can’t. For those that have been cooped up this year release unnecessary stress or tension that may have built by recalibrating in exciting new surroundings at Jumeirah Dar Al Masyaf where work stress will simply melt away with views over the serene lagoon from your private balcony.

Enhance your mood

Finally, having a positive goal to work towards combined with the overall enjoyment of taking a holiday can help to enhance your mood during the darker months. Science also comes into play here, as studies show that UV rays from sunlight can stimulate the production of our happy hormone; Serotonin. Treat yourselves to experiences you can’t enjoy at home, such as private dinners under the stars as the sun sets in the horizon. Sprinkling in a sun-break here and there, even if for only a few days, can break up the long stint between the festive season and springtime.
