Tailor Made Holidays to the Middle East

Holidays in the Middle East have moved on considerably since the Dubai of the Nineties exploded onto our horizons in a whirlwind of eccentric designs and dazzling architecture.  It still glitters with five star luxury and positively oozes with affluence, but happily for us, a new style of resort has opened that encapsulates the remote mystique of the desert that surrounds the modern beachfront resorts, waterparks, malls and restaurants. 

The Sultanate of Oman with its thousand miles of relatively undeveloped coastline has also come out of Dubai’s shadow as the Middle East for those who want to escape the hub-bub of Dubai and drink in the ancient history, beauty and heritage of the region.  Combined with year round sunshine, a four hour time difference and an easy seven hour flight from the UK, the Middle East is a destination in its own right, and a sensational place to visit in conjunction with the Indian Ocean or Africa as well as a stopover and a hub for travel to Australasia. Our consultants can help you experience a completely tailor-made holiday to the Middle East and help combine any onward travel.

Where to go on holiday in the Middle East

Hotels & Resorts for a holiday to the Middle East

  • Ritz Carlton Al Wadi Desert

    Set in Ras Al Khaimah, one of the seven Emirates that form the United Arab Emirates, Ritz Carlton Al Wadi looks out onto a desert landscape as idyllic and remote as was ever experienced by Lawrence of Arabia! Conjuring up visions of nomadic travellers and a shimmering desert oasis, this is about as romantic as it gets.

  • One&Only Royal Mirage

    Exemplifying the splendour of old Arabia, this magnificent resort (considered the most stylish resort on Jumeirah Beach), comprises three equally distinctive places to stay – the original hotel ‘The Palace’, and two new additions – ‘Arabian Court’ and ‘Residence & Spa’. What’s more, as a guest, you can enjoy the extensive dining and leisure facilities offered at all three properties (with a few exceptions such as the pool at The Residence & Spa which is for residents’ use only).

  • Six Senses Zighy Bay

    With an almost biblical location on the Musandam Peninsula in the Sultanate of Oman, Six Senses Zighy Bay is flanked by the rugged Hajar Mountains and the azure, crystalline waters of Zighy Bay. This is remote with a capital R, however access is actually very easy with flights into Dubai’s state-of-the-art airport followed by a two hour road transfer. A dramatic 4x4 drive down into the bay is how most guests choose to arrive or perhaps the idea of a 15 minute speedboat ride from the nearby port is more appealing. For thrill seekers who are after a truly ‘Bond-esque’ sense of arrival, why not paraglide in across the bay!

  • The Chedi Muscat

    Effortlessly elegant sums up the Chedi Muscat perfectly. An architectural dream with graceful curved arches flowing into tranquil water gardens against a back drop of the majestic Al Hajar Mountains and the luminescent waters of the Gulf of Oman.

  • Melia Desert Palm Dubai

    Just 20 minutes outside Dubai city, Melia Desert Palm is located on a private estate that was originally created as a haven for owner, Ali Albwardy’s personal enjoyment of polo.

  • The Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah

    Located on the beach front in Ras Al Khaimah, The Waldorf Astoria is surrounded by the Hajar Mountains, white sandy beaches and the beautiful waters of the Arabian Sea.
    Boasting stunning sea views and True Waldorf Service it is the destination of choice for nature and adventure lovers looking for a quite beach break away from the city lights of Dubai.
