Weekend culture guide: June 23-25
Iridium Spa, Vida Downtown, Eid Al-Fitr
While the spotlight might shine on Eid Al-Fitr this weekend, Dubai still offers a luxury pop-up for the fashion-obsessed as well as a new tranquil retreat to refocus and rejuvenate. These are the top three cultural experiences to mark the end of Ramadan.
Iridium Spa at St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club
Dubai's newest luxury hotel destination, the St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club, brings with it the brand's famed Iridium Spa which features separate private treatment rooms for men and women. In line with the theme of the resort, the spa offers the exclusive Equestrian Spa Journey session that includes a massage that draws inspiration from a horse's walk to help relieve the tension on the body.

The Edit pop-up at Vida Downtown
Inspired by the Ramadan and Eid season, the boutique hotel presents The Edit, a fashion pop-up concept at its lobby which showcases the finest fashion works by a host of Middle Easter designers including Amal Al Raisi, Anatomi, Bthaina and HS by Hissa Zainal.
The Edit runs until June 27 at Vida Downtown.
The new moon will be sighted over the weekend to mark the start of Eid Al-Fitr so browse Buro 24/7 Middle East's special Eid gift guide.
