Abu Dhabi is the UEA’s capital and largest emirate, measuring up at four times the size of its six neighbouring Emirates put together, but it’s a destination of quality as well as quantity.
The long list of world renowned hotels that have recently added an Abu Dhabi resort to their repertoire will serve as a sterling endorsement to any avid traveller because, as any good businessperson knows, no smart supply isn’t first prompted by demand – and the rapidly growing city of Abu Dhabi certainly demands our attention, as this progressive Arabian state is the torchbearer of the UAE’s huge strides toward modernity and technological innovation.
Of course, Abu Dhabi isn’t all science and technology. It has all of the luxury and glamour we’ve come to associate with Dubai, featuring pristine beachfront properties, cosmopolitan mega-malls, huge water parks and the world’s largest indoor theme park, Ferrari World. Saadiyat Island is another interesting attraction with a string of prestigious museums and galleries due to open in 2016/17, whereas Sir Baniyas Island presents the opportunity to see the UAE’s largest nature reserve.
The city has emerging vibrant art and social scene and, as such, dozens of prestigious hotels have flocked to the area to accommodate the jet-setters, artists and socialites responsible for making this emirate the next place to be. This is a city that has it all – trendy cosmopolitan quarters, fine dining, the stunning mangrove national park, islands, beaches, nature reserves, museums, sporting events, theme parks, water parks and a fascinating culture and history.
