About the location
Abu Dhabi is the United Arab Emirates (UAE)’s capital city, located on an island in the Persian Gulf and home to the luxurious beachfront hotel, Fairmont Bab Al Bahr.

With over 5,000 years of history deep-rooted in Arabic tradition, you can easily immerse yourself in this rich culture through the traditional Arabic architecture, and in the local souks (markets) that are brimming with vibrant colours and spicy aromas.

Delve into history at Al Maqtaa Fort, the dazzling Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, or the modern archaeological site of Qasr Al Hosn. At the same time, Abu Dhabi proudly looks to the future, oozing grandiose living with its wide, palm-tree lined boulevards, technology-savvy skyscrapers, and decadent nightlife.

Between the old traditions, the sprawling shopping malls and borrowed cultural attractions like the new Louvre Abu Dhabi, this city exists to entertain you.

The call of the desert is never far away during your stay in Abu Dhabi, with the vast silky sands of Rub' al-Khali inviting you to a traditional Bedouin camp. Abu Dhabi can make your Arabian dreams come true.
Nearest airport
About a 20 minute drive from Abu Dhabi International Airport.
