Abu Dhabi

Family holiday in Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi offers numerous activities that you can enjoy as a family. The city provides all the opportunities for you to bond as a family. Try riding on the dunes in the Arabian Desert or get on a kayak in the Abu Dhabi mangroves, get set on a water jet, peek into the Bedouin lifestyle of the past at The Heritage Village, feel the wind on a roller coaster at Ferrari World, or just take a stroll and enjoy the skyline by the Corniche.

 

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates has a remarkable range of activities catering to almost every market segment. There are plenty of family friendly activities in Abu Dhabi, and children are never bored when holidaying anywhere in United Arab Emirates.

Abu Dhabi has been no slouch when it comes to creating family-friendly hotels. Almost all the major hotels have children’s clubs and the Rotana, also on Yas Island, particularly impresses with its splash pool and water playground.

As far as taglines go for making the youngest family members almost dizzy with excitement, Abu Dhabi’s boast of having the world’s biggest indoor theme park is good news, akin to finding out that all chocolate is free or that Santa is upping his visits to once every weekend.
