Living in luxury when visiting the UAE

The United Arab Emirates is a country of excess; one of the highest oil producing countries in the world, the UAE is what you would call a high income economy. As such, visitors have their choice of luxury lodging to relax in, with some of the most opulent hotels in the world.

Here are some of the best luxury hotels in the country for those looking to stay somewhere extra special.


Desert Islands Resort and Spa by Anantara

This unique resort is located on a secluded island, one that also happens to be a wildlife and bird sanctuary. The hotel itself is one of a kind, with an infinity swimming pool and the most modern of suites, but the real draw is the Sir Bani Yas island.

If you’re looking for a memorable place to stay, look no further it’s one of the nicest desert hotels UAE has to offer. From the hotel, you can go on an adventure safari at the Arabian Wildlife Park, mountain bike, wildlife hike, as well as all other manner of outdoor fun. It’s a combined experience that you won’t  forget anytime soon!

Tilal Liwa Hotel

Tasteful decorations and elegant furnishings signify the luxury of this hotel. Located on the edge of Rub Al Khali (the empty quarter) this hotel’s decor is only surpassed by the level of service that the staff provide. They’re all friendly and helpful, so whether you want to book a camel ride, desert safari, or spa date, it’s as simple as asking.


Banyan Tree Al Wadi

The first desert hotel to offer an all-pool villa concept in the UAE, the Banyan Tree is a true oasis in the desert. Lodgings consist of a tented roof in the traditional Bedouin styling, with modern decor surrounding the room. The real draw is your own private pool in the middle of the desert, which you can look at through the view-inspiring floor to ceiling glass windows surrounding the tent. It truly defines the concept of a luxury stay in the desert.

As you can see, the UAE is home to some of the most luxurious hotels in the world. It’s a place to truly relax, and relax in style.
