Luxury Vacations to the United Arab Emirates

With glittering skyscrapers, man-made islands, gigantic shopping malls, sweeping deserts, opulent beach resorts, and world-renowned restaurants; the United Arab Emirates is one of the world’s most glamorous and luxurious destinations. Dominated by the traditional opulence of Abu Dhabi and the futuristic spectacle of Dubai, a luxury vacation to UAE with Lightfoot Travel will show you the best of this fast-developing country.

UAE is comprised of seven individual emirates of which Dubai is its undisputed star. Iconic skyscrapers including the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, rise from the desert landscape, while its beaches are the place to be seen. Man-made islands jut out into the waters of the Persian Gulf, and enormous malls are a haven for designer shopping.

Stay at the world’s most luxurious hotel, Burj al Arab, opt for the Arabian charm of the One&Only Royal Mirage, or choose the contemporary vibe of the Jumeirah Al Naseem.

The capital of UAE, oil-rich Abu Dhabi epitomises its contrasting nature. This once obscure fishing village is a modern city-state, where designer boutiques rub shoulders with winding souks and the call to prayer reverberates along skyscraper-lined streets. The grandiose Emirates Palace makes a great base while you explore the Grand Mosque or visit the UNESCO-listed Al Ain.

Away from city life, experience the Arabian desert amid palatial luxury at Anantara Qasr Al Sarab, seek thrilling adventures and savannah-like wildlife on Sir Bani Yas island, or head over the border to the Northern Peninsula of Oman to the stunning hideaway of Six Senses Zighy Bay.
