For many, a visit to Abu Dhabi will be a culture shock.
While the city’s traditional Islamic values and modernizing appearance seem to clash, this destination offers travelers the best of the old and new culture. It is this variety that makes Abu Dhabi a fun place to take a vacation.
Here are tips on booking your hotel, plus three of the coolest places to stay in Abu Dhabi.
What You Should Look For in a Place to Stay
Save travel time during your vacation by booking lodging near popular attractions and activities. If you can’t find lodging near attractions, the next best thing is to find a hotel near public transportation.
Public transportation is one of the best ways to rub shoulders with locals and explore new places.
Not only does it put you in the perfect position to talk to Abu Dhabi residents, you can also travel at your leisure for cheaper than a taxi.
The last tip is to book a unique location.
Although chain hotels offer guests a predictable experience, they also eliminate the excitement of staying at a new place. Many hotels in Abu Dhabi offer an impressive experience worthy of a return visit.
Three Cool Abu Dhabi Hotels
Abu Dhabi is one of the most visited cities in the United Arab Emirates. One reason this destination is so popular is because of its spectacular hotels. Here is a list of some of the coolest places you can book for your next stay.
Hotels are officially rated only up to five stars, but that did not stop the Emirates Palace from rating itself a seven-star hotel.
This is a super-luxury hotel with amenities that will blow your mind. There are 302 rooms and 92 suites on this sprawling property. While guests have many activities to keep them busy, the concierge service vows to fulfill your desires with a “Whatever, whenever – Consider it done” service.
The One & Only Mirage is like a dream come true with three luxury hotels in one.
The resort is split into distinct sections that depict various parts of Islamic culture. Guests can enjoy a private beach, an expansive garden with palm trees, and eight dining locations. It is like a miniature city inside of Abu Dhabi and guests may never want to leave.
Have you ever seen a trap that uses blue light to lure unsuspecting insects to their demise?
The Yas Viceroy will similarly draw you into its grasp with an illuminated building that lights up the night sky. This hotel knows how to make its guests feel important with a stimulating rosewater-scented lobby, on-call dedicated lifestyle assistants, and BMW shuttles to the beach.
If you’re in a hurry, try hitchhiking a ride at the F1 racetrack — the track goes through the hotel!
You will have no problem finding a spectacular place to stay when you visit Abu Dhabi.
With so many great options, each with their own unique perks, anyone can find the perfect hotel to satisfy their wishes.
