OVERVIEW

If you are looking for the perfect destination for an exotic Arabian honeymoon then head to Abu Dhabi, sister Emirate of Dubai and in possession of its own fascinating cosmopolitan city. Though it is in a continuous state of development and boasts some of the region’s finest luxury hotels and world-class restaurants, Abu Dhabi is also more laidback than Dubai and boasts fertile gardens and parks, spacious streets and a 6km Corniche overlooking the sea. The city also offers easy access to the attractions of the desert, with its vast, barren beauty and timeless aura of romance and wildness.

Spend your Abu Dhabi honeymoon booked in to one of its opulent hotels or resorts and prepare to experience the exotic allure of the Middle East. Visit the city’s fascinating cultural attractions, such as the iconic Sheikh Zayed Mosque which offers guided tours, enjoy a picnic in Al Safa Park and ramble along the Corniche soaking up the sunshine, the sea and the unique atmosphere of Abu Dhabi. If you are visiting during winter be sure to head to the Camel Race Track to catch the Thursday and Friday races, and whatever time of year you visit make sure you book a desert safari. These trips include dune bashing, a lavish dinner and live entertainment provided by a talented belly dancer.

During your romantic Arabian sojourn you can also enjoy other novel delights such as dolphin watching and wreck-diving, or book yourself onto a helicopter tour for a bird’s eye view of Abu Dhabi. After a tiring day’s sightseeing treat yourselves to a decadent couple’s treatment at one of the hotel’s luxury spas and complete the day with a private candlelit dinner with your new spouse at your chosen resort.
