Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Dubai

Rio Ferdinand and Bobby Zamora

If your family is more likely to hit the hotel fitness centre than the beach, why not try out one of these active holiday retreats with expert training from some of the world's best sporting professionals?

1. Jumeirah Beach Hotel

Help make your children's football fantasies become a reality and whisk them off to Dubai this Easter, where ex-Premier League stars Rio Ferdinand and Bobby Zamora will be running a Football Academy this April (17-21) for budding sports stars.

There are spaces for up to 75 children and the course will include two training sessions a day, a Football Escapes kit, a medal and a certificate for all their hard work on the pitch.

In the meantime, adults can partake in a variety of training programmes, including tennis, squash, rock climbing, aerobics and Talise X, a bespoke outdoor training area for those who are serious about fitness training.

For those visiting on a superyacht, there are berths at the hotel's Pavilion Marina for yachts up to 60 metres.
