Christmas can be an expensive time of year, there’s no doubt.
But it doesn’t have to be if you know where to look.
Abu Dhabi’s top hotels, restaurants and bars have a string of great offers on to help you enjoy the festive fun and save some cash at the same time.
And it will cost you less than you think to celebrate Christmas at one of the capital's most iconic hotels, Jumeirah at Etihad Towers.
You can celebrate in style with a brilliant brunch at the excellent Nahaam, which features a plush indoor eating area and expansive outdoor terrace too.
A DJ and saxophonist will be playing all the classic festive hits, while a visit from Santa and numerous live cooking stations are also on offer.
And there's even a great kids' area to keep the little ones entertained while you feast on all of your festive favourites.
