Our Abu Dhabi luxury holiday insight

Coffee is offered in Abu Dhabi as a symbol of hospitality, a custom originating from Bedouin tradition. Here’s a tip: when ordering coffee outside your resort, you are most likely to receive Arabic coffee, called Kahav, which has a bitter flavour, no milk and is spiced with cardamom. It’s an acquired taste. For American coffee, you should specify which kind, and if all else fails ask for Nespresso. 

Abu Dhabi luxury holidays are ideal for...

Couples, families, world-class infrastructure, spectacular scenery, beautiful beaches, shopping, heritage and culture.
