Make it a weekend to remember
Enjoy up to 30% off your stay this May

Make the most of your extended weekends this May with a quick, luxurious getaway. From tropical beaches to big cities, you can choose from many beautiful hotels and resorts in popular destinations.

United Arab Emirates

The U.A.E. is best known to tourists for the glorious heights of Dubai, with its towering skyscrapers, huge shopping malls and wonderful weather, perfect for sun-worshipping travellers wanting to relax on the beach.

Not to be forgotten, however, is the slick capital of Abu Dhabi. Explore the winding backstreets and barter over Bedouin goods, and make sure you save time for a trip to the unmissable Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.

To find out more about the country's past, visit the religious sites based around the emirate of Fujairah. Be sure to book a guide to get the inside information as you climb the steps of the Al Hayl Castle, or visit the Al Bidyah Mosque, where you'll find stunning sea views and more traditional architecture.

Ajman is another seaside resort, more suitable for families thanks to its enormous beach and the amusement parks in town. Culture buffs will still find enough to keep themselves occupied in the informative Ajman Museum, housed in an 18th century fort.

Abu Dhabi

Proud of its green spaces and phenomenal modern architecture, Abu Dhabi has a reputation for being calmer than party destination Dubai. Don't be fooled, however, as the city caters to all tastes, from aesthetes to adrenaline junkies.

One of modern Abu Dhabi's main attractions is Yas Island. Children will love the exciting junior rides, while adults brave the faster rollercoasters. Formula One fans should be sure to see the Marina Circuit, which hosts the Grand Prix. Adventure-seekers can also rent an SUV to go dune bashing in the desert, or enjoy a different kind of thrill during camel-racing season.

There are plenty of more serene sights to explore, from the grand majesty of Sheikh Zayed Mosque, to the expansive Khalifa Park - much more than a picnic spot, with its aquarium and maritime museum. The stunning eight-kilometre Corniche brings together waterfront shopping complexes and sparkling beaches, and during the cooler months, its separate bike path is a great way to explore further.
