You don’t need to wish on a magic genie to grant you the phenomenal holiday of exploring three iconic destinations within the Middle East. Start your magical journey in Abu Dhabi for 2 nights, followed by 3 nights in the glitzy city of Dubai, before ending your trip with 5 relaxing nights at the beach in Ras al Khaimah. This region attracts many visitors thanks to its glorious sunshine which is guaranteed all year round. You can enjoy the best of city and beach life during this stunning package which includes accommodation, transfers, daily breakfast and international flights on Etihad Airways.
Start your trip with 2 memorable nights inside the decadant Le Méridien Abu Dhabi Hotel.

On the last leg of your trip, explore Ras al Khaimah which is a lesser-known but equally stunning destination in the Emirates. Here you will spend 5 tranquil nights at the Rixos Bab Al Bahr Hotel in a Deluxe Room Garden View, on an all-inclusive basis.
Enjoy moments of peace as you rest inside a large guest room with the most spectacular views of the turquoise Arabian Gulf. The stunning resort is a great place for families, as it understands that happy kids make for happy parents.
