Breaks In Abu Dhabi – Abu Dhabi Hotels

Posted September 21, 2010 by BookingBuddy



Abudhabi Ever wanted to experience life in the richest city in the world? Then book yourself on a flight to Abu Dhabi for a glamourous break! This little slip of land in the United Arab Emirates plays host to the headquarters of many big companies, and houses many spectacular skyscrapers. Many buildings here are very eye-catching, such as the over-the-top facade of the Emirates Palace Hotel. The hotel’s interior is just as ostentatious, featuring suites furnished in marble, with gold fittings all around. There is also a quieter side to the city. The peaceful Qasr al-Hosn is one of the oldest buildings in Abu Dhabi, while Khalifa Park is a great spot to relax and enjoy a picnic. Shoppers might want to keep a close eye on their wallets – Abu Dhabi is famous for its shopping centres. There are many high-end brands to be found here, although bargains can be found in the smaller, independent boutiques and shops too.

 

See

The Corniche – Abu Dhabi’s playground is the Corniche, the 7 kilometre long promenade that stretches along the city’s waterfront. Early evening is the best time to stroll along the Corniche, as the evening breezes help cool the city down after a day of baking heat. There are beaches with swimming areas, as well as umbrellas to help shade beachgoers. Thrillseekers can have a go on the go-cart tracks, or you can just sit back and enjoy the performances put on by various groups.

 

Stay

Vision Hotel Apartments – Accommodation can get fairly pricey in Abu Dhabi, but you won’t have to pay through your nose for luxury at this hotel. The Vision Hotel Apartments offers spacious studio-style suites only a short way away from The Corniche. The suites come with kitchenettes, so you can prepare home cooked meals yourself. You can also have meals at the Vision Cafe, which has a wide range of local and international dishes on its menu. Room rates start from about £65.

 

Eat

Al Mina Restaurant - The Al Mina Restaurant is looks out over Dhow Harbour, and offers diners picturesque views, especially when the sun sets in the evenings. Start your meal off with some fragrant tabbouleh, or a plate of stuffed vine leaves. Other dishes of note here include locally caught seafood as well as grilled hammour (grouper). The kebab Sultani comes with tender chunks of mutton, on a bed of spiced saffron rice.

This place looks amazing! I'd love to go in Abu Dhabi during summer, especially on the Yas Island.
