One word to describe a visit to the United Arab Emirates? Astounding. It’s impossible not be mesmerised by the glittering sunlight that dances off the gold souks, or the soaring skyscrapers that seem to extend beyond the stratosphere.
Anything is possible across the UAE’s seven emirates, making this a truly special luxury destination. The first place that comes to mind is Dubai, and this fascinating destination is so much more than just a honeymoon stop-over. Spend your days indulging in the biggest feats of man-made wonder; larger-than-life shopping malls, the towering Burj Khalifa, and the Palm - almost a city in itself! Step beyond the glitter and you can explore the desert's rolling dunes by 4x4, or venture further to Abu Dhabi's hub of culture.
A Dubai honeymoon is the perfect compliment to the paradise islands of destinations like the Maldives and the Seychelles; begin your adventure together in style and lavish luxury! Family holidays are also popular in Dubai, thank's to the Palm's amazing water parks and Abu Dhabi's amusement parks such as Ferrari World!
Looking for a destination where you can truly indulge the one you love? Start your happily ever after with a bang in Dubai and treat your partner to opulent, world-class dinners, fabulous jewellery and unparalleled city views. Abu Dhabi is also the perfect place for newly-wed couples to enjoy fine dining or afternoon teas under sparkling chandeliers or fabulous operas; hopelessly romantic.
Abu Dhabi is the perfect adventure for those looking for a couples’ holiday, go on a romantic bike-ride in the sunshine and let the sea breeze tousle your hair, kayak through mangroves and discover flamingos and herons, or head to Dubai for the shopping trip of a lifetime and 4x4 adventures in the desert!
There’s something for every member of the family in Dubai – because who wouldn’t be excited by the world’s biggest indoor theme park? Abu Dhabi also offers plenty to keep everyone entertained; the kids will adore Ferrari World; home to the world’s fastest roller coaster!
Welcome to the world’s tallest building, unmissable as its glass sides glitter in the Dubai sunshine!
With observation decks on floors 128 and 148 and a restaurant and bar on the 122nd floor, this will likely be the highest you ever get (excluding your flights, of course). You’ll get the VIP treatment as soon as you arrive on the 148th floor, with offerings of tea and dates. This is the chance to get food with a view, have you ever dined this close to the clouds before?
Your Dubai holiday can turn into the shopping spree of a lifetime, with malls, souqs and even festivals dedicated to the pastime!
Head to Dubai Mall; the world’s largest mall, and you really will get more than you bargained for... Get lost amidst its 1300 shops and 150 food outlets, this is a shopaholic’s paradise! There’s something for the whole family here, the kids will love racing around the ice rink and gazing at gorgeous fish in the aquarium, and family members of all ages will love the indoor theme park!
When we think of the Middle East, we think of bustling traditional markets – but this one is what the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow looks like.
The Gold Souq in Deira sells more stunning and lavish jewellery than you can imagine, the majority of it in opulent gold. You might find the perfect gift for your partner here... Even if you don’t feel like buying anything for yourself, you can watch as stylish clients from around the world glide around and purchase amazing pieces, you’ll feel like you’re in the presence of royalty!
Rising up from gorgeous gardens, majestic domes and soaring minarets penetrate the Abu Dhabi skyline...
This is a mosque is like no other, a perfect welcome to your Abu Dhabi holiday. The prayer-room is sumptuous, you’ll feel like you’re walking through a building fit for royalty as you gaze up at chandeliers dripping with sparkling Swarovski crystals and feel the world’s largest loomed carpet beneath your feet.
Whether you’re a fan of the Grand Prix or not, Ferrari World is definitely worth a visit, particularly if you’re visiting Abu Dhabi with your family.
Enjoy everything from exciting vintage car shows to thrilling rides and simulators - this is home to the world’s fastest rollercoaster! Savour Italian-style delicacies as well as food-court themed dining that replicates the Grand Prix experience, the perfect alternative if you miss the main event.
Lose yourself in a narrow maze of lanes and take a step back in time, allow yourself to escape the bustle of the city centre...
This is the historical district of Dubai, a far cry from the bright lights and soaring skyscrapers that it is known for today! Wander past quaint, sand-coloured houses with beautiful, intricately designed walls and windows boasting floral, star and diamond shapes. A city wall dating back to 1800 sits in Al Fahidi, can you find it?
