Rediscover Abu Dhabi: 5 of the best staycation offers to take advantage of
The new initiative aims to give residents a chance to reacquaint themselves with the emirate
The Department of Culture and Tourism Abu Dhabi has launched a new campaign that focuses on highlighting the best that the capital has to offer.
The Rediscover Abu Dhabi initiative aims to give residents a chance to reacquaint themselves with the emirate as it slowly reopens, through special deals across dining, entertainment and shopping.
For those seeking something a little more relaxing, there are plenty of staycation deals, too. All hotels on offer are Go Safe certified, meaning they've met the required hygiene and cleanliness standards set by the Abu Dhabi government to ensure the well-being of guests. All tourism and hospitality staff will also have to undergo regular Covid-19 testing.
With that in mind, here are five of the best deals currently on offer:
Bab Al Qasr Hotel and Residence
The luxury hotel located next to Jumeirah Etihad Towers has a special summer offer with rates starting from Dh290. Bab Al Qasr has 677 rooms, suites and residences and boasts one of the largest private beaches in Abu Dhabi. It also has an outdoor pool, sun terrace and spa set across two floors.
