New Jumeirah hotel opens in Abu Dhabi desert

If you fancy exploring the Abu Dhabi desert, you can now do it from a luxury new hotel.

The stunning Jumeirah Al Wathba Desert Resort & Spa is now open for business, and it's just a 30-minute drive from the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.

The resort takes inspiration from a historic desert village, and features traditional-style courtyards and walkways, along with water features and pools inspired by the natural falaj (irrigation channels) from the past.

Inside there's a spa, villas with private pools, Arabian-inspired rooms, a pool, and six restaurants and bars.

Activities on offer fat-biking through the dunes, archery and desert treks, and there will be falcon shows every evening. The resort’s pool stretches  into the desert and expands into inlets and coves (one of which includes a swim-up pool bar).

If you're after a pamper session, the Talise Spa offers Turkish hammams, snow caves, hot and cold plunge pools and crystal salt and cryo therapy rooms. There is also a dedicated yoga area.

When it comes to food you'll find Middle Eastern, Italian and Mediterranean cuisines, a poolside bar Panache, and a Bedouin camp, as well as a rooftop bar.

Consider us very excited about this one.
