The United Arab Emirates is a young nation on a high-speed trajectory towards reaching the pinnacle of the world’s most exclusive luxury holiday destinations.
Made up of seven emirates, each with their own individual feel, a galaxy of experiences awaits discovery in the United Arab Emirates.
You can spend your time on the fairways of world-renowned golf courses, or sunbathing on the deck of a yacht as it navigates the Gulf. Watch the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix or explore the remnants of ancient civilisations, almost lost in the desert over time. In Dubai, anything and everything is possible.
While it’s a bit clichéd, the East-meets-West feel of the UAE is really what makes it so special and different. When you leave a glitzy nightclub in the early hours to hear the Call to Prayer reverberating down quiet streets from age-old minarets, it becomes obvious just how unique this nation is.
You can soak up the rays on a dazzling white beach or traverse the golden sands of the desert on camel back. Shop for Louis Vuitton clothing in the mega-malls or Arabian carpets among the winding souks. Just offshore are stunning manmade islands like the Palm Jumeirah – said to be visible from the moon – while inland lie Unesco World Heritage sites like Al Ain.
Dubai is, of course, the jewel in the crown – a luxury playground, where the future and past collide with spectacular results. It’s a city-state where every venture and project is bigger, bold and more luxurious than the last. Dubai offers the finest range of luxury hotels in the world, a dazzling roll call of design and innovation. It has shopping down to an art form, with every designer brand conceivable represented here – and the gourmet dining scene attracts a who’s who of leading chefs and restaurateurs. It excels in indulging the passions of its visitors. Be that the high-octane adventure of sand dune skiing or just enjoying the finer things in life at the ultra-luxurious spa centres.
