Birthday sale for Atlantis the Palm
Atlantis are celebrating their birthday with a 25% off all rooms and suites for stays 04 October 2020 – 10 November 2020. Obviously, this is quite last minute but that is the nature of travel right now! It is one of the best times to visit weather-wise as it is still hot but not ridiculously so. A number of my friends have visited very recently and would go back again. You can read my friend’s review of his Dubai trip and what is required here.
You need to book by the end of 7 October to get the discount. They also offer free COVID-19 tests in the resort for your return flight for everyone staying when you stay 5 nights or more on any room package.
Dubai is not on the travel corridor list so you would have to quarantine when you come back. You also need to get a test prior to travel both ways but this is relatively easy now compared to when my friend Martin wrote his review.
However, if you work from home and don’t mind that, rooms start from a very low £156. Normally they are at least double this. Rooms and the Imperial lounge have all been refurbished since my last visit which you can read my thoughts on here.
Cathay Pacific business class sale
If you want reliable, friendly and consistent service, Cathay would be my top pick. You can read all my Cathay reviews here. Cathay has launched a UK sale until for travel until 17 October 2021.
They are also offering their Fly (worry) Free – unlimited ticket changes. This gives you the freedom to make unlimited changes to new tickets, without the usual change fees for a full year after purchase. This offer is applicable to all new tickets purchased up to 31 December 2020.
As usual, prices aren’t super cheap but they are definitely lower than usual. London business class return to Hong Kong is £1899. This offer in business class is only available for travel until 14 August 2021, unlike economy.
