We asked Mariana Reitman, the chief concierge at Four Seasons’ 237-room hotel on Jumeirah Beach, to plan a perfect day in Dubai.

“Start by driving around in a Bentley GT; I can get you the only one in the city with red interiors. Go to the Palm to see the Atlantis.

Take to the sky for a helicopter tour, followed with lunch by the beach at 101 Restaurant at the One&Only The Palm, where you’ll enjoy a seafood platter and a very cold Chablis while taking in views of the skyline.

Then you’ll head to Downtown and go to the 148th floor of Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, followed by a shopping trip in Souk Al Bahar to buy a souvenir.

For dinner, indulge at Roberto’s DIFC Dubai with some burrata cheese and truffled pasta. Finish the night with a table at Dubai’s best club, Provocateur, and a bottle of $1,500 Pérignon rosé.”
