Rich in history, a luxury escape to Abu Dhabi with Elegant Resorts is fast becoming a popular choice amongst our clients for holidays in the Arabian Gulf . As the capital of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi is affectionately known as the ‘Garden City of the Gulf’ because of its green boulevards, beautiful gardens and parks. It is just a ninety-minute drive away from Dubai and, in general, things run at a more leisurely pace here, although there are plenty of things to see and do - from sand-skiing to souk shopping.
Emerging as one of the leading leisure, entertainment and cultural destinations in the UAE, Abu Dhabi City’s heart is its six-kilometre-long Corniche, set right beside the turquoise waters of the Arabian Gulf. You can visit archaeological sites; take a guided tour of the famous Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque; shop at a plethora of malls and souks; relax on beautiful white-sand beaches; enjoy fine dining at a range of classy restaurants; take in concerts by world-famous entertainers (Metallica, Coldplay, Madonna, Elton John, Scissor Sisters and David Guetta are just a few of the acts which have graced Yas Arena’s stage in recent months) and even take a hop-on/hop-off Big Bus tour around all of Abu Dhabi’s major landmarks.
