The UAE WITH A&K

Prepare yourself: the UAE doesn't do shy and retiring. Sunny, historic, traditional? Yes. Magnificent Arabian desert and majestic mountains? Yes. But when it comes to its dynamic ever-rising skyline, modesty goes out of the tinted skyscraper window.

To make the most of its historic past and high octane present, our long established regional team provides highly qualified, multi-lingual guides, superb contacts - we'll happily arrange a candlelit supper among the dunes prepared by a internationally renowned chef - and the best 4WD vehicles.

Take an Abercrombie & Kent holiday to the United Arab Emirates in 2014 and we'll show you Dubai, the second largest emirate, where 90 per cent of its cosmopolitan population are expats. Its blockbuster sights embrace dazzling luxury accommodation, including the world's tallest hotel, artistic man-made archipelagos swaddled by emerald water that are best appreciated from a helicopter - naturally we'll arrange one ¬- and spiky Burj Khalifa, the highest building on earth.

There's the planet's biggest snow park with five different ski runs, a race track hosting the world's richest race, and lush fairways for its wealthiest golf tournament, all punctuated by superb shopping malls, souks ¬ - there are masses of gold sellers - and pockets of traditional architecture from tea houses to wind towers. You'll find it all juxtaposed with miles of sun bleached sand, kissing crystal clear water tailor-made for dhow cruises at dusk, and a wild, remote interior with desert worthy of a Hollywood romantic epic, backed by the Hajar Mountains, the highest range in the east of the Arabian Peninsular.

To the south, Abu Dhabi, UAE's capital and the largest emirate, offers tree-lined boulevards and lush gardens behind a spectacular high-rise corniche and splatter of uninhabited Gulf islands. Yet it's most dramatic creation, where A&K's top-notch guides will come into their own, is still being built. Saadiyat Island, 500m off the mainland, is set to become a global cultural hub. Architects including Norman Foster, Frank Gehry, Jean Nouvel and Zaha Hadid, have designed an extraordinary forest of new museums, including outposts of the Guggenheim and Louvre, alongside the exquisite Zayed National Museum, Maritime Museum and the multiple stages of the Performing Arts Centre. It's further proof that, as we'll happily demonstrate, the Emirates are like nowhere else on earth.

Guest Testimonial

I have never been compelled to write to a company to tell them about my booking experience, but I feel that in this instance I must. I spoke to both Robin Spanner and a representative from another travel company. The next day, Robin sent me a full tailor made itinerary whilst the other rep sent me a link to one of the standard holidays on their website. Needless to say, Robin had already won my custom and confidence.

Spring Escapes

Winter Solstice

Spring escapes with Abercrombie & Kent

The notion of a peak season is usually a function of weather and school holidays, often meaning an increase in hotel rates and airfares. However, at A&K we are big fans of the so-called 'shoulder' season. Here are a few great reasons to get packing this Spring.
