Wake up with a Roar

When it comes to picking a holiday destination, we can all get a little overwhelmed from time to time.  When you have kids with a couple of months off school, it can be even harder. So, it’s really good to have options a little closer to home, so you can keep everyone happy without breaking the budget. And if you’ve been looking for a staycation with the ‘wow’ factor, we guarantee you’ll find it at The Resort at Emirates Park Zoo.

Luxury – Safari Style

The extensive expansion and renovations that have transformed Emirates Park Zoo over the past few years haven’t just been limited to improving animal welfare, the launch of The Resort provides a new level of hospitality that needs to be seen to be believed. Taking inspiration from the rustic chic of luxury African safaris, there are 25 brand-new Chalets complete with first-class décor, amenities and bespoke VIP experiences.  You can choose from Premium (sleeps up to 4) or Deluxe (sleeps up to 5) Chalets, either with a Spa or Zoo view, and all of which come with all-day club access. Sleek and modern, yet welcoming and engagingly styled, these family chalets are the perfect base from which to take full advantage of the many wondrous adventures the zoo.

This Jungle has VIP Access

One of the truly unique experiences that Emirates Park Zoo offers is the level of animal interaction. Not only are there safe shows, animal interactions and feeding sessions that fully incorporate the well-being of the animals, there’s also a range of extraordinary VIP experiences that will bring you even closer to some of the wildest characters in the zoo. Choose from a full-service Breakfast with the Giraffes or Tropical Birds, Brunch with the Big Cats or have unforgettable experience with the ‘roarsome’ lions. For dining options not so close to giant teeth, the zoo has plenty to choose from. In addition to the ever-popular Al Dar Arabic restaurant and shisha café, there are two new eateries with cuisine to suit every taste.  Stunning and stylish all-day family restaurant The Hide offers a delicious menu of treats, all in full view of the Zoo Zip and Climb and the petting zoo, complete with peacock dining companions.  In the Heritage Village, you can attend a falcon show whilst feasting at the Yemini outlet Qasr Al Turath, which is filled with traditional flavours and local specialities. 

Endless Fun, Minutes from Home

While there are lots of special offers available this summer, every chalet here comes with full zoo access and, trust us, there is lots to see and do.  With more than 2,000 animals to visit, a giant Zoo Zip and Climb, friendly feeding sessions and conservation talks, the kids will never run out of things to do.  The zoo is even running an official Kids Zoo Camp, which your kids can attend for free when you book two nights or more in one of the chalets over the summer school break. One thing that you’ll be delighted to discover about Emirates Park Zoo is just how accessible it is, at only ten minutes from Yas Island and Abu Dhabi International Airport, only 40 minutes from Dubai, and just minutes from the junction connecting to the Mafraq-Ghuwaifat highway from KSA and Al Ain. With such a great location, there’s no excuse not to add Emirates Park Zoo to your must-visit list.  You might not have to travel far to take advantage of the new chalets in The Resort, but you’ll feel a million miles away when you’re woken by the sound of a purring giraffe.  This really is a staycation with a wild side.
