Dubai and UAE

Dubai and the UAE are where old meets new, duty-free shopping meets sightseeing, and miles of golden sands meet with your approval every time.

Trek the mountains and deserts, vulture the culture in the art galleries and museums, or discover waterparks and wetlands, sandboarding and seaplanes.

Do it all in five-star comfort in plush hotels with infinity pools, saunas, steam rooms and treatment rooms.

Dubai is a cultural melting pot of more than 70 nationalities, and has become a byword for luxury living. It’s a playground for western tourists, providing every kind of leisure activity you can imagine. Must-sees in Dubai are the Dubai Fountains, the Burj-al Arab containing a luxury hotel and restaurants, the Courtyard, made of glass and steel and housing art galleries and studios, Deira Souks, selling spices and gold, and for family entertainment, the Wild Wadi Water Park. And you can’t miss Palm Islands, the largest artificial islands on earth that are also visible from space. Palm Islands are home to luxury hotels, marinas, health spas, shopping malls, restaurants, cinemas, sports facilities and dive sites.

Also worth a visit in the United Arab Emirates is its capital, Abu Dhabi. Be seduced by iconic landmarks like the Emirates Palace, a luxurious hotel where Arabian majesty meets today’s technology to produce a magical experience that will stay with you all your days. If you want to see the only hotel in the world that straddles an F1 race track, try the legendary Yas Viceroy, built half on land and half over water. For a hint of history, visit Al Jahili Fort, created in 1891 to protect the city.

For those looking for a more active holiday, we can hire you a fully-equipped boat with crew for some deep sea fishing, or arrange a more traditional dhow cruise. Go wadi bashing in Hatta, try your hand at some off-road desert driving, or view it all from above in a hot air balloon.
