Highlights

Arabia for culture

Arabia for wildlife

Arabia for wildlife

The largest desert in the world borders one of the globe’s most beautiful oceans, creating amazing bio diversity that includes Arabian Oryx, gazelles, vultures, buzzards and falcon. Resorts such as Desert Island Resort & Spa by Anantara and Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa invite visitors to discover the desert's flora and fauna on walking trails, on horseback or by 4x4 jeep.

Luxurious resorts such as the Shangri La’s Barr al Jissah in Oman make great efforts in nurturing the environment – carefully protecting the local nesting sites of Hawksbill Turtles and inviting guests to learn more about this protected species.

Arabia for events

A now well-established highlight of the F1 season, the Etihad F1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is at the end of the season and is often the race where the championship is won (or lost). The city goes to great lengths to ensure that this weekend is an entertaining festival for all of the family.

Top performers always include Dubai on their world tours, and this year the city will be entertained by big names like Justin Bieber and Ed Sheeran, while the major hotels regularly host world-class DJ events.

Resort hotels such as One&Only Royal Mirage and JA Jebel Ali Beach have their own private beaches with a selection of water sports on offer - from hobie-cats and paddle-boards to jet-skis and kayaks.

Away from the coastline and high in the mountains, there are opportunities for rock-climbing, caving and abseiling – many of which are available at Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort.
