6 of the best things to do on UAE Mother’s Day 2022

Monday 21 March means spas, painting classes and dining deals

Monday March 21 is the day the UAE dedicates to celebrating mothers.

And though we think it’s important to celebrate the mother figures in our lives all year round, UAE Mother’s Day in Dubai is the perfect excuse to make her feel extra special.

There are plenty of things to do in the city over the Mother’s Day weekend on March 26-27, but here are six of the best on offer happening on Monday March 21.

Free meal for mum at Café Society

At this cute café, you can treat your mum to breakfast, lunch or dinner while watching the pennies. Between the hours of 9am-11pm, if you order two main courses, you will receive mum’s course for free. Choose from classics like eggs benedict or toasted French brioche when you sit down to an elegant breakfast here. Later in the day there are several stylish dishes such as salmon linguine and Portobello truffle risotto to choose from for lunch or dinner.
Buy two main meals at breakfast, lunch or dinner and get one (for mum) free. Mon March 21, 9am-11pm. TAMANI Marina Hotel, Dubai Marina (04 318 3755).
