Imagine a postcard-perfect image of pristine white sands and glistening blue waters, and this is the reality of this luxury beach resort overlooking the sea, nearby to downtown Abu Dhabi. This Top Secret Hotel is the epitome of pure bliss and indulgence, bordered by the exclusive Saadiyat Beach Golf Club and with unrivalled sea views – it’s a little taste of heaven! The Abu Dhabi International Airport is conveniently only a 20 minute ride away and the hotel generously offers airport transfer to make the journey as stress-free as possible. Central Abu Dhabi is just 7 minutes away where you can find the majority of the restaurants, shops and cultural attractions. The various leisure facilities here are second-to-none and mean that you could easily spend all your time at the hotel if you wanted to; there are indoor and outdoor swimming pools as well as direct access to the beach, a fitness centre, spa with beauty treatments and massages and tennis facilities. Each well-appointed and fully kitted guest room and suite enjoys high-speed internet, butler service, mini-bar and balcony, to make you feel completely at ease and comfortable.
The attractions in the local environs are varied and plenty, and include the Abu Dhabi Corniche, Ferrari World and the Formula 1 Race Track, among others. Ferrari World is a wildly-popular choice with families travelling with kids of all ages, as there’s much excitement as well as education. The interactive games, over 20 fast rides and shopping all tell a part of the story behind the iconic Italian brand. The park is open all year round, Tuesday to Sunday.
For something a little more serene and still, travel into the depths of the Abu Dhabi desert to the Arabian Nights Village. The village provides a remarkable insight into the spirit of old Arabia and the more traditional lives of the Emirati people. There is almost no modern technology, and the village strives to be as sustainable as possible, using water from a well dug 65 metres deep to ensure the natural local resources are utilized. If you’re still craving a little adventure in the desert, get strapped in and prepare for an authentic Abu Dhabi experience: driving a 4×4 through the dunes. Anyone can book for lessons given by qualified instructors to take the ride of their life across the vast dune landscape.
The nearby, stunning Abu Dhabi Corniche is an stretch of immaculate waterfront for 8km, with a beach, children’s playgrounds, cafes, restaurants and cycle paths. The views over the water from any of the eateries along the stretch are lovely and calming, and there are a number of bike rental shops dotted around so you can make your way up in leisurely fashion.
Enjoy your magical Abu Dhabi experience!
