1. Fur-stive Celebrations
Want to share the holiday season with more than just family and friends? Let the four-legged loves of your life join in at Radisson RED Dubai Silicon Oasis, with its ‘fetching’ staycation package that makes quality time with your much-loved pet a top priority.
To ensure all RED guests snooze in style, those booking the Pet Staycation Package will have their rooms kitted out with a pet bed and food bowl, while their dogs are welcome to hang out in the lobby or curl up in a corner at OUIBar + Terrace, because all animal visitors are free to come and go as they please. The nearby Silicon Lake will also please pets partial to an early morning or late evening stroll.
