Holidays to the United Arab Emirates

Fall in love with holidays to the United Arab Emirates, one of our most exotic and tantalising destinations. Perhaps best known for Dubai's towering skyscrapers, manmade marvels, stunning beaches and never ending shopping malls, the Emirates hardly start and finish with this magnet of wealth and spectacle.

Highlights

  • Spectacular cityscapes of architectural marvels and towering skyscrapers
  • Luxury resorts boasting exclusive service and facilities
  • Exciting desert activities
  • The tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, and the largest indoor theme park in the world
  • Extravagant Michelin star restaurants in Dubai & Abu Dhabi
  • Stunning white beaches
  • Head up the coast to Ras Al Khaimah for luxury resorts and a gentler pace
  • Discover action-packed mountain and desert activities in the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah

Abu Dhabi is the capital of the country and while it might not boast the same level of fame as its sister Emirate it is no less flamboyant. The city and its surrounds are growing into a cultural hub that offers plenty in the way of luxury and leisure. Experience the Ferrari World indoor theme park as well as the enormous Grand Mosque, captivating museums and slick metropolitan bustle. While Abu Dhabi is breath-taking in its own right, the UAE's ultimate offering remains Dubai - which is never short of an excuse to overindulge.

Whether it's lavish escapes to the surrounding desert or indoor skiing at Ski Dubai, opposing extremes meet in this place of cosmopolitan wonders. Dubai offers a host of experiences, whatever your taste: take-in the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa; relax at one of the luxurious resorts on the manmade Palm Jumeirah or along Jumeirah Beach; dine at extravagant Michelin star restaurants; enjoy thrilling water parks; experience the largest indoor theme park in the world, IMG Worlds of Adventure; or the huge new Dubai Parks & Resorts theme park that includes LEGOLAND; or catch a glimpse of old Dubai around the Creek and enjoy the atmosphere of the souks.

The emirate of Ras Al Khaimah is still relatively undiscovered by the crowds and offers a glimpse of real Arabian life. It couldn't be more of a contrast to Dubai. Here, as well as luxury hotels and great beaches you'll find rugged mountains, endless deserts, ancient cultural sights and an oasis of nature. Inland, the unspoilt landscape awaits discovery with a great selection of unique activities and excursions for the ultimate Arabian experience.

Unparalleled service, contrasting desert, beach and cityscapes along with incredible exclusivity are staples of the UAE experience, one that never fails to disappoint.

Claire Picknell was our travel consultant and she was very helpful from start to finish. We really appreciated the fact that she called out to our house to discuss holiday options before we booked. In Africa everything went so smoothly - we hadn't realised we would have someone to meet us at Lusaka airport but it was so good having someone get us through immigration. Both Bush Camps and Wilderness Safaris were reliable and professional at all times. The only small thing is that I wish we had known beforehand that to fly home through South Africa meant we had to have yellow fever jabs. When we had gone to travel clinics and advised we were travelling to Zambia we were told we didn't need yellow fever. It was only 2 weeks before we left that I realised because we were flying home via South Africa that we needed yellow fever. We were fortunate to find somewhere that had a stock of the vaccine.

It was great to pack in so much to two weeks - Cape Town, safari and Mauritius. The safari was amazing. We got to see the 'Big 5' on many of our game drives at the Thornybush Reserve and the ranger at our accommodation was so willing to stay later on drives when we had a good spot. Our accommodation was luxurious and we enjoyed the many honeymoon extras!
