The weather is finally cooling down, and the UAE's serial staycationers are in for a treat at this new desert resort, just 25-minutes from Abu Dhabi. 

It’s just about as Instagrammable as hotels come…
The low-slung desert resort modelled after an Arabian fort, Jumeirah Al Watbha is a tonic for escapists seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of Abu Dhabi or Dubai. Its labyrinthine layout of sand coloured buildings make for the perfect IG backdrop. And let’s all just take a moment to appreciate that pool…



It caters to the healthy holiday makers…
While this is the perfect place to curl up with a book or meditate in the dunes, there’s surprisingly a lot to do here, depending on one’s adrenaline levels. Channel your inner Katniss Everdeen and book yourself in for an archery session, work up a sweat in the hotel’s state-of-the-art gym, or indulge in a tranquil spot of yoga on whilst overlooking the rolling dunes. BAZAAR recommends a sunrise horse riding hack – we promise it’ll be the most peaceful thing you’ve done all week…



And the foodies…
A plethora of six restaurants beckon, from the Emirati cuisine at Al Mabeet to Italian tastes at Terra Secca and relaxed poolside dining at Panache. Take your pick!



And not to mention the adrenaline junkies...
If lying horizontal soaking topping up your vitamin D levels does not exactly scream ‘holiday’ to you, Jumeirah Al Watbha offers a unique mountain biking experience to satisfy your pedal-powered ambitions.



It boasts all the hallmarks of a traditional Arabian getaway…
From the food to the décor to the experiences, the hotel pays homage to Emirati heritage with desert tours, falconry and archery, plus bedrooms that are tastefully decorated with draped tapestries, colourful rugs, ornate Arabesque lanterns and all boast stunning (sand duney) views.
