Lightbulb 30th Birthday Party Ideas

Hello All,

It is my other half’s birthday next weekend and after agreeing just to have bbq at home, he now wants something more amazing to toast goodbye his twenties. I have looked at renting a villa in Dubai for the weekend, however it is a little pricey and obviously boats or beach activities our out of the question in this weather!

Any suggestions would be great, preferably in Abu Dhabi but open to celebrate in Dubai.

Thanks x

Why are beaches and boats "out of the question" in this weather?

Here on Paradise Island, people go boating all the time in July and August - I've been out on 2 of the last 3 Saturdays.

bowling is nice...

if anything outdoors is out of the question it limits your options...
how about Pharaos club in Wafi...they have a climbing wall, maybe you could reserve that for a few hours, get an instructor and do a bit of climbing...there's also a nice outside area with swimmingpools for the afternoon and afterwards you could go for dinner at one of the restaurants at Wafi...

Try the Village at One2One. You could go there early for a dip in the pool then chuck some shorts and T shirt on and have the nice all you can eat BBQ and a few beers then chill with some shisha. They have a massive air conditioned tent there as well.
