Your Destination —
As the United Arab Emirates capital and largest emirate, Abu Dhabi is quickly becoming a contender for out-dazzling Dubai. It is a unique blend of diversity, from the contemporary chic of downtown Abu Dhabi to the timeless Bedouin traditions of the surrounding mountains, deserts and the sandy beaches.
Overlooking the famous Corniche, this hotel is fantastically located for tourists. You are within minutes walk from the city's shopping malls and historical areas, as well as the fantastic Tourist Club Area and Le Meridien Village, where an abundance of leisure, dining and entertainment options will keep you occupied.
The pristine white sand and sparkling blue waters are a magnet for beach lovers, and a wide variety of watersports is also available for the more adventurous!
If you can tear yourself away from your sun lounger, head for the mountains for cool air and Bedouin traditions, or take a jeep or camel desert safari.
