Winter can be an especially cold and harsh season if you live in the Middle East. Many people enjoy winter weather, of course, but many more would prefer to keep warm and cozy rather than suit up for freezing temperatures. That's why we compiled this list of how to stay warm during winter while you're booked for Sharjah's best 5 star hotel family stay package. The list includes heating the room, engaging in activities and adding thermal layers to stay warm.
Tips to Help You Stay Warm and Cozy in A 5-Star Hotel
1 Choose a Room with Heating
When booking your stay, make sure to choose a room that is equipped with heating. This is especially important during the winter months when temperatures can drop at night. Look for rooms that have individual temperature control, so you can adjust the heat to your liking.
Most hotels have rooms with different types of heating systems. Some rooms might have electric heaters, while others might have hydronic radiators or even gas-fired boilers. You can also find rooms that use steam heating or even radiant floors for heating purposes. Choose the type of room based on what makes you comfortable and what works best for your budget.
2 Dress in Layers
Even though Sharjah may not have harsh winters, it's still important to dress in layers when venturing outside. This way, you can adjust your clothing depending on the temperature and your activity level. Start with a base layer made of moisture-wicking material, add a warm middle layer such as a fleece or down jacket, and top it off with a waterproof and windproof outer layer.
3 Drink Warm Beverages
Drinking warm beverages such as tea, coffee, or hot chocolate can help warm you up from the inside out. Many premium hotels in Sharjah offer complimentary tea and coffee in the room or lobby, so take advantage of this and enjoy a warm beverage while lounging in your room. Warm milk is also a good choice because it contains calcium and other nutrients that can help reduce muscle pains. Hot chocolate is another drink that will help you stay warm during winter. It’s especially good for kids who don’t like warm milk but still need something soothing before bedtime.
4 Enjoy Local Cuisine
Emirati cuisine is known for its hearty stews and soups, perfect for warming you up during the winter months. Take advantage of the local cuisine by trying out some of the traditional dishes offered at the hotel's Oscar restaurant. There are plenty of options available for everyone, including vegetarians and people with food allergies or intolerances.
5 Bring Cozy Accessories
One way to stay warm during winter is by bringing accessories that will help keep you comfortable throughout the day. A scarf or shawl is one of the best accessories that you can bring with you when going out for a walk or taking a stroll through the city. Other accessories are a warm throw blanket, slippers, or a hot water bottle. This way, not only will it protect against cold winds, but it also adds color to your look and makes everything look more stylish than ever before! If you want something even warmer, then bring along gloves and mittens as well! They will help keep your hands warm and dry at all times.
6 Get a massage from professional masseurs
Massages are beneficial for your body as well as mind. It helps you relax, unwind and rejuvenate yourself after a long day’s work. It is also good for people who are suffering from stress or anxiety problems. You can relieve your mind and body with a professional massage done by expert masseurs at these hotels.

You can either take a dip in these pools or enjoy the calmness of them while lounging by their sides with friends or family members.

A hotel room does not only provide a comfortable bed for you to sleep on but also gives you the opportunity to enjoy delicious meals. And if you don't feel like venturing out in the cold, take advantage of room service. Many hotel holiday packages in Sharjah come with a range of hot and comforting dishes that can be delivered directly to your room.
