Abu Dhabi is a great mid-haul destination for a luxury honeymoon, with its beaches, cultural attractions and desert experiences.
This emirate – the largest of the seven in the United Arab Emirates – is culturally minded, yet has also embraced the new, with attractions such as Ferrari World Abu Dhabi; the world’s largest indoor theme park. Adrenalin-junkies will love the Formula Rossa - the fastest rollercoaster on the planet at 149 miles per hour - and racing fans eager for more can drive the adjacent Yas Marina Circuit, site of the Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. For an authentic Arabian experience a desert safari is a must for any visitor to the region; with sand skiing, dune bashing and camel riding top of the activities list.
Other ‘must sees’ for your post-wedding getaway include Yas Island, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, the Louvre on Saadiyat, the Sheikh Zayed Museum and the Guggenheim.
From the immense Emirates Palace Hotel, decorated with 1,000 Swarovski crystal chandeliers, to golfers’ favourite, the beachside St Regis Saadiyat, Abu Dhabi’s properties are lavish.
If you’re looking to try something a little different then why not take a closer look at Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara, situated in the Empty Quarter - the largest continuous expanse of sand in the world? This stunning desert resort sits majestically within the dunes. Boasting a superb spa, three excellent restaurants, plus some fantastic desert dining options, you’ll feel very spoilt by a stay here.
A prime position to explore the many delights of Abu Dhabi awaits at Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi, which is near to the new cultural highlights of the Saadiyat Cultural District, including Louvre Abu Dhabi.
Beachfront beauty and signature butler service make Abu Dhabi’s Mediterranean-style property St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort a superb choice for your luxury escape to the Arabian Gulf.
Whether you’re visiting as a stand-alone honeymoon, or stopping off on route to the Indian Ocean, you’ll benefit from year-round sunshine in this coastal Emirate.
