It offers magnificent landscapes, breahtaking coastlines and rich, terracotta desrt planes and is the UAE's most authentic destination. It offers year round sunshine with 64 kilometres of white sandy beaches and is around 45 minutes from Dubai.

This area focuses very much on their natural assets like the Jebel Jai mountain range and is a very outdoors resort with everything from the worlds longest zipline to kayaking. This emirate is also the easiest Emirate to buy alcohol and can even buy from a local shop and this is the same even during ramadan.

Holiday Experience

5 stars as there is so much to do other than just lie at the beach and I feel this resort could work well for us due to the market demand. They have every board basis from bed & breakfast to all inclusive and star ratings which are mainly 4 and 5 star. The resort can get really warm so to give the customers the best experience I would suggest travelling outwith July and August
