Five-Star meets Star Wars: Abu Dhabi Adventure

Five-Star meets Star Wars: Abu Dhabi Adventure

Five-Star meets Star Wars: Abu Dhabi Adventure

By Elegant Resorts Travel Experts

Posted: 18 December 2015

Whilst luxury travel hasn’t quite progressed to holidays in a galaxy far far away, much of the hotly anticipated Star Wars: Force Awakens blockbuster was actually filmed on location in Abu Dhabi. The Arabian Desert was the perfect setting for director J.J. Abrams’ vision for the new generation of the mega-movie, as the iconic sand dunes and visually striking environment proved an exact likeness for the fictional outer-space locations in which the popular space saga is set. Abu Dhabi is already an action-packed and thrilling location for any luxury holiday, but with The Force newly awakened there is no better time to uncover the many riches of this exquisite Middle East destination. If you fancy getting closer to the backdrop for some of those epic lightsabre duels and death-star sequences, why not check out our Abu Dhabi Destination Guide for an overview and insight into this incredible capital city. Our featured hotel, Emirates Palace was chosen to host the Middle Eastern premiere of the film, with many notable names and Storm Troopers in attendance. For guests seeking a more authentic Arabian experience, Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara is located within the Empty Quarter of Abu Dhabi’s legendary Liwa Desert, the largest uninterrupted sand desert in the world, and offers many excursions and experiences to uncover the stunning desert landscape and its surroundings. With the Star Wars phenomenon about to explode like a supernova, beat the crowds and book your exclusive tailor-made Abu Dhabi holiday today.

Please call our expert Travel Consultants on 01244897881 to turn your Star Wars inspiration into a five-star luxury holiday reality.
