As part of the ROCS Group’s employee incentives and continuous professional development, the team from ROCS Travel and Emirates Holidays Malta were treated to a familiarisation visit to Dubai. Joined by the Group’s Business Development team and led by ROCS Group’s director and travel expert Ms Rachel Vella, the team stayed in the luxurious 5* Address Downtown, right next to the Dubai Mall.
The group was taken on a tour of Dubai to see the sights and learn more about this innovative country, travelling up the Burj Khalifa for a bird’s eye view of the development and desert, and also given some time to shop at the array of shops and luxury boutiques found at Dubai Mall. The late afternoon and evening took the team on a magical journey into the desert in vintage 1950s land Rovers through the pristine Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve. Here, they experienced a stunning falcon show, traditional ceremonies and dance, and delicious food as served within the private Bedouin camp. Some team members were also able to get up close and personal with camels and falcons, and participated in the lively music and dance entertainment in the camp!
An action-packed adventure day took the team to the Middle East’s number 1 water park, Aquaventure at the Atlantis the Palm, as well as to the sensational Ski Dubai at the Mall of the Emirates – a true respite from desert temperatures and a fun activity for all! After a tour of Motion Gate at Dubai Park & Resorts – and plenty of posing with familiar characters such as Kung Fu Panda and Shrek – the team returned to the 5* Address Downtown hotel to prepare for dinner at a surprise location. The team were left in awe as they walked into the gorgeous Armani Hotel, set within the Burj Khalifa itself for a sensational farewell dinner after touring the hotel and some of its most deluxe suites.
The team made their way back to Malta on a fantastic Emirates flight with top-notch in-flight entertainment and service available, tired but happy and energised – ready to share their adventure and experience with the ROCS Group’s clients
