If you’ve always wanted to indulge in the more luxurious things that Dubai has to offer, but you’ve been unable to justify spending money on them, we may have a solution.
A new membership scheme called One recently launched in the UAE, and it promises to make the first-class lifestyle a little bit more attainable.
It’s essentially a black card that’ll give you exclusive benefits and discounts across a range of brands and outlets. For example, you can get up to 25% off at restaurants in JW Marriot Marquis, Habtoor Grand Autograph Collection hotels, and Radisson Blu Media City (among others). Or you can enjoy rounds of golf at specially negotiated rates.
You’ll also get other benefits and privileges that aren’t available to the general public. Think first dibs on events, or package upgrades – that kind of thing.
“Firstly, travel options are included to support your daily life, along with excursions that will thrill your family, friends and potential clients. Dining benefits include discounts of up to 25% off your total bill at some of Dubai’s most stunning venues, while golf privileges and discounts might just help you clinch a business deal,” explained James Becker, founder and managing director of One.
“Third, the benefits are not limited to certain times or dates – as a One member you can take advantage of your card benefits all year round.”
So, how do you get involved? You can get your hands on a One membership by heading here, where you can either buy an annual membership costing AED 280, or else, if you’re visiting Dubai or you have friends and family visiting, you can purchase a traveler pass which gives 30 days of unlimited access for AED 100.
What’s great, though, is that this is something of a bespoke experience. When you sign up, you tell One how you’d like to indulge, and you’re given privileges based on what you like to do.
And once everything is sorted, you get a fancy black card hand-delivered to your door.
