Amazing Abu Dhabi Holidays

As the historical capital of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi has long been known as a place of great beauty and a go-to place for fun and adventure.

Abu Dhabi city is situated on an archipelago and offers everything from exquisite architecture and the Louvre Abu Dhabi to great golf, with shopping, adventure parks, and water sports thrown in. Further afield there are lots of different cultural explorations, desert adventures and even an island nature reserve to be seen.

Abu Dhabi has more than enough to offer as a whole holiday destination in itself, but it is also a great stop-over on a long haul journey.

Whether you are looking at an Arabian adventure for your holiday, or thinking of breaking your long haul flight to do some shopping and have a dip in the turquoise waters of the Gulf, we can arrange it for you. We are completely independent, but have access to the best hotels, resorts and activities. We can arrange flexible, ABTA and ATOL protected bookings to make sure that your visit to Abu Dhabi is absolutely amazing.

Amazing Abu Dhabi Holiday Options

There are three rather different options to explore in this amazing emirate:

  • The main capital city area and the many islands that make up the city. Here, apart from the range of hotels, there are superb resort options, including private islands.

  • The oasis city of Al Ain to the East which also offers a wide variety of hotels and resorts, and even desert glamping.

  • The area of Al Dhafra to the west where you will find beach resorts and desert resorts.

If you are thinking about a longer stay you should try to get a look at each of these areas, though if this is a stop-over you may have to be more selective.

The capital city offers:

  • A range of architectural and cultural attractions, the most notable of which are the exquisite Sheikh Sayed Grand Mosque, the Louvre Abu Dhabi, and the Manarat Al Saadiyat or 'place of enlightenment'. There are also the spectacular landmarks of the Etihad Towers, W Abu Dhabi and the Aldar HQ.

  • A whole lot of exciting activities, including two major theme parks, indoor sky diving and climbing, several outstanding golf courses, and all types of water sports.

  • Several ancient forts, notably Qasr Al Muwaiji Fort, Al Jahili Fort and Al Qattara Fort. These are all museums or galleries and open to the public.
