City Escapes or Luxurious Getaways? 3 Destinations That Offer Both

When it comes to planning a vacation, striking the right balance between relaxation and adventure is key. If you're someone who craves the tranquillity of a beach resort but also desires the buzz of a vibrant city, you're in for a treat. Join the BAÍAH team, as we take you on a journey to three remarkable destinations that offer the best of both worlds: luxurious beachfront escapes paired with exciting city entertainment.


Bali, often referred to as the "Island of the Gods," effortlessly combines the allure of pristine beaches and lush landscapes with a rich cultural heritage and vibrant urban life. Start your Balinese adventure at one of its renowned beach resorts like the Conrad Bali in Nusa Dua which offers an oasis of tranquillity with pristine beaches and luxurious amenities such as spa facilities or private yoga classes . Overlooking the Indian Ocean, it's the perfect place to unwind under swaying palms.

Start your day relaxing in the pool with a floating breakfast, wearing BAÍAH’s Saní Bikini Top and Navagio Bikini Bottom in our stunning Tiger Leaf Print!

After days of relaxation, head to Ubud, the cultural heart of Bali. Explore the ancient temples like the Uluwatu Temple and Tirta Empul. Don't forget to catch a traditional Kecak dance performance at the Ubud Palace to be transported into another era. For a taste of city nightlife, Seminyak offers an array of bars and clubs where you can dance the night away. We recommend heading to the beach to catch the sunset under a canopy or colourful parasols which illuminate as the night falls, mirroring the twinkle of the many stars.

Recommended Activities:

  • Explore the terraced rice paddies of Tegallalang.
  • Take a sunrise trek up Mount Batur.
  • Visit the Monkey Forest Sanctuary in Ubud.
  • Experience a traditional Balinese cooking class.
  • Snorkel or dive in the crystal-clear waters around Bali.


Dubai is synonymous with luxury and excess, making it a prime destination for those seeking an extravagant beach getaway paired with a dynamic city experience. Begin your Dubai sojourn at the iconic Palm Jumeirah, home to the stunning Atlantis, The Palm resort. With its private beaches, underwater aquarium, and lavish waterpark, it's the epitome of beachfront opulence, and a once in a lifetime experience.

Dubai's cityscape is a testament to human ingenuity. Visit the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building, for breathtaking views. Stroll through the historic Al Fahidi district, with its wind towers and narrow lanes. For shopping, head to the extravagant Mall of the Emirates or the traditional markets, or "souks." And don't miss out on a desert safari for a taste of adventure, where you can choose either traditional camelback or adrenaline-inducing dune buggies as your mode of transport.

Keep cool and chic in the desert heat when you wear BAIAH’s easy, breezy Taillat Dress in vibrant Zebra Leaf print!

Barcelona, situated on the northeastern coast of Spain, perfectly marries the charm of a seaside city with a rich tapestry of art, culture, and history. La Barceloneta is Barcelona's most famous beach, known for its golden sands and bustling promenade. You can opt to sunbath or surf, sample freshly caught seafood or park your yacht at the Port Olímpic complex.
