If you’ve always dreamed of going to Aspen on a ski trip (and by skiing, we mean lounging in a cosy-but-luxurious cabin by the fireplace), you can finally make those dreams a reality – all without leaving the city. Nestled in the Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates are the jaw-dropping Aspen Chalets, modelled after the ultra-exclusive Aspen in Colorado. This one-of-a-kind staycation destination (that features three en-suite bedrooms, FYI) lifts you out of the hustle and bustle of daily life and plonks you down on the plush, perfectly-nappable sofas of the Aspen Chalets. Trust us, you won't find a better place to escape the scorching desert heat.
The Kempinksi’s five-star facilities mean you’re looked after by super-friendly staff from check-in to check-out, both of which happen privately in the comfort of your new home, before being given a grand tour of the chalet by your personal butler. Yes, it’s that big.
Adorned with mahogany furniture, faux-fur throws and LED fireplaces (complete with crackling sound effects), the lavish living and dining areas overlook Ski Dubai, so you can watch more active folks hit the slopes while you sit back in your robe – just remember they can see in, so make sure to tie it tight; although you can always use the remote (!) to shut the curtains should you want some privacy. Both first-floor bedrooms also look out over Ski Dubai, while the mega-spacious master looks over the pool and offers unobstructed views of the Burj Al Arab.
Want to leave the children with your S.O and have a little ‘you’ time? Take advantage of the Kempinski Hotel’s location and pop next door to Mall of the Emirates to shop the summer sales. After your shopping spree, unwind in an instagrammable bath complete with Hermés amenities. No doubt one of those soaps will 'accidentally' end up in your suitcase.
With unique views and fine-dining destinations at your doorstep, there’s no better way to spend a staycation than at the Kempsinski Hotel’s Aspen Chalets – thanks to the laid-back atmosphere and spot-on décor, you’ll definitely forget you’re actually in the heart of a busy, bustling city. After all, isn’t that what staycations are all about?
