It's designed to mimic a Mediterranean village where you can stroll through such stores as Luxcouture, which stocks clothing by Brian Reyes and Christopher Deane, and Chic Oz Design, which carries items by emerging Australian designers. Peekaboo has a range of activities for kids up to seven years old,
so you can leave the little ones to play while you shop. For pampering, Sensasia (is one of the best independent spas in Dubai.
