September always brings new challenges.
The kids are back to school, the shorter Ramadan working hours are a distant memory, and most of us are back in the UAE after escaping the summer heat. In a nutshell, reality has well and truly hit! That’s why you need something to look forward to. So, how about booking another cheeky little trip away?
I’ve rounded up the best weekend breaks in the UAE so you can enjoy a little ‘R&R’ without having to travel too far. Go on scratch those tired itchy feet and treat yourself!
Located on a private beach with panoramic views of Abu Dhabi, this exclusive property offers Arabic gondola rides, a lavish spa with the most glorious massage treatments, and outdoor pools which will cool your temperature down this summer. Relax in the luxurious rooms with elegant furnishings, and balconies with a view of the stunning garden or Arabian Gulf.
If you’re after a hotel with a difference then head to the Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi. This iconic hotel is built over land and water and spans the Yas Marina Circuit, the favoured racetrack of Formula 1™ legends. Watch high-speed races from the hotel daily or chill out on the beach for a relaxing sunny day.
