Abu Dhabi: Culture, relaxation or modern lifestyle it has it all
15 September 2013
Currently working in Saudi Arabia what better way to spend a long weekend away than at the Shangri-la in Abu Dhabi.
Abu Dhabi has become our favourite place in the UAE to visit over the past two years as there is so much to do and something to please everyone.
A quick transfer from the airport to the hotel and we feel like we are home, we are greeted as friends and settled into our room with a view of the grand mosque.
To experience modern lifestyle a shuttle service into the center means that its not long before were off exploring this diverse city. There is so much to see and do. We pay a visit to Marina Mall followed by a stroll along the marina. The Big Bus Tour allows us to hop on and hop off at many places of interest. A visit to Yas Island fills our need for adrenalin as we experience the theme park and water rides.
Cultural days are spent visiting the grand mosque and Zayed National Museum. In the evening a traditional dhow dinner cruise to admire the ever changing views of Abu Dhabi.
When a well deserved rest is needed visit the Chi spa and enter a world of relaxation, be soothed by well trained hands, aromas and delicate background music. When your spa session is over head to the infinity pool and enjoy a cocktail at sunset, admiring the grand mosque as it comes to life. A quick change and its time for dinner at one of the many restaurants, so much choice and food to suit every palate.
A peaceful nights sleep and the following morning your refreshed and ready to go and explore again. With so much to see and do you will never have the opportunity to become tired of this ever changing city.
