If you’re a culture fan, you’ll be pleased to know some of the emirate’s museums and galleries are also open.
For those who want to chill out but don’t want a night way, many hotels have introduced day pass deals, allowing you to enjoy the facilities and a room from morning to evening.
And now pools in Abu Dhabi are open, there’s plenty more to recommend these deals.
Fairmont Bab Al Bahr
For Dhs500, you'll get five day passes to the hotel's beach and Dhs300 back in credit to spend on food and beverages. Children are also welcome and kids under 12 can accompany paying adults free of charge. The beach will be subject to strict social distancing rules and must not exceed a maximum capacity so you’ll have to book ahead before arriving. There are also day-pass deals, which cost Dhs149 per person on weekdays and Dhs199 on weekends with Dhs100 in credit for food and drinks. For both deals you'll have to take your own towel.
