Your Next Holiday In Abu Dhabi
Abu Dhabi is known as the UAE’s capital city, a busy centre of various government agencies and business and commercial activities.
The city also recognised around the world for its ultra-modern and luxurious race track – the Yas Marina Circuit, home of the yearly Formula 1 races.
As a travel destination, Abu Dhabi is famous for the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Louvre Abu Dhabi, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi, and other attractions designed to delight people of all ages.
However, Abu Dhabi also has several beautiful beaches — you will certainly miss out on a lot if you fail to see and visit them. They are some of the city’s best points of attraction that entice both locals and tourists to visit every year.
Perks of Staying at a Beach Resort in Abu Dhabi
Booking a room at the Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort or any beachside resort or hotel in Abu Dhabi is the best way to ensure you can explore and have fun at the city’s fantastic beaches.
Whether you are visiting the emirate alone or with your family, you will enjoy these perks when you stay at a beach resort in Abu Dhabi:
#1. Enjoy the free use of the private beach and swimming pools.
The best thing about staying at a beach resort or beachfront hotel is that you will have unlimited access to the property’s private beach.
You can then relax by the sand or try various water activities or sports anytime without having to worry about travelling or walking far to get to the beach.
Most of the time, these private beaches are only open to resort guests or paying visitors. As such, you won’t have to deal with large, noisy crowds. You can, therefore, spend more time relaxing by the sand and enjoying your choice of water sport or activity.
Lastly, beach resorts have beautifully designed swimming pools. This means that you have another place where you can relax, take a dip, and cool down near your accommodation.
#2. Access the complete premium amenities and services
The island resorts in Abu Dhabi stand out in terms of the rooms, amenities, and services they offer.
All the hotel rooms and areas are so well-designed that you can’t help but be impressed by their aesthetics. The Bab Al Qasr Hotel, for instance, has such stunning architecture and striking interiors that you won’t be able to keep your eyes off them.
The rooms are also well-furnished and have everything you need to ensure you enjoy a comfy, luxurious stay while on their premises.
Whether you or your fellow travellers need room service or a massage, or you want to work out, you will find whatever you are looking for at a resort. You will have access to the gym or fitness centre, spa, salon, and other amenities that allow you to have an incredible holiday in Abu Dhabi.
#3. Enjoy more water sports and activities
If your idea of enjoying a beach getaway is trying out different water sports and activities, you won’t go wrong with staying at a resort.
An island resort is the perfect place for various exciting water activities. There are designated spots on the beach for swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, paddleboarding, jet skiing, and other fun things to do on the water.
There also places on the sand where you can play beach volleyball, football, and ultimate frisbee.
You will also be able to rent all the equipment and gear you need to enjoy these water activities from the resort you booked at or at the shops of nearby providers.
#4. Get closer to nature
Staying at an island resort gives you more opportunities to immerse yourself in nature and enjoy its health benefits.
Sunbathing or lying down on the sand allows you to relax both your mind and body. The fresh air and healthy amount of sunlight will do wonders for your health, too.
Kayaking, canoeing, paddleboarding, and swimming are other relaxing and calming activities that give your body an excellent low-impact workout.
Kayaking, canoeing, and paddleboarding in the mangroves, if there is one near the resort you are staying in, will also help you learn more about this ecosystem and come across plant and animal species that you may not usually see in your home.
#5. Indulge in amazing eats
Enjoying great meals is another experience that you will love when you stay at an island resort.
Most resorts in Abu Dhabi have more than one in-house restaurant. Because of this, you will have different types of cuisines and dining experiences to choose from.
You also have the option of dining indoors or al fresco. If you dine outdoors, you can indulge in amazing meals and, at the same time, enjoy fantastic views of the sea and other surrounding scenery.
You won’t be disappointed by the cafes and bars you will find in Abu Dhabi’s top-rated resorts.
The next time you visit Abu Dhabi on your own or with your family, plan on staying at an island resort. You will have a more memorable and even productive holiday here if you do.
