A former tour leader for rock bands and performers, Lazarov fell in love with the Middle East—its art and architecture, cuisine and sense of hospitality—years ago. As the region has grown more popular, both as a destination in and of itself and as a gateway to Africa and the Pacific, Lazarov’s clients have come to appreciate her attention to their particular interests, whether it’s squeezing in museum and gallery visits between business meetings or visiting Dubai’s gold markets with a private shopper.
New Favorite: The Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach incorporates traditional Middle Eastern design—latticed archways, hanging lanterns—in its 237 rooms, which start at an enormous 750 square feet. The property also has a spa and a rooftop bar with a DJ.
