With medium-haul flights direct from several regional airports, plenty of sunshine and a seemingly endless list of incredible activities for young and old, Middle East family holidays have much to recommend them.
Dubai’s sandy beaches, mega malls and water parks make it a thrilling holiday destination for you and yours. All guests at Atlantis The Palm resort enjoy unlimited access to the Aquaventure Waterpark, which is part of the resort complex and a guaranteed hit with all ages. Or perhaps you’d like to head out into the deserts nearby for a 4x4 ride and entertainment as the sun sets? Our Destination Experts can advise on and arrange many exciting excursions.
Another glittering Emirate, Abu Dhabi possesses equal potential for family fun. Lazy days and splash-about fun can be spent by the pool or on the beach, or perhaps a trip to Ferrari World would suit? This incredible indoor theme park is the biggest of its kind in the world!
The mountainous landscapes and beautiful beaches of Oman are great for exploring. If you’re with older kids or teens, you might like to explore the wilderness on quad bikes, whilst youngsters will be wowed by the kids’ facilities at our selected resorts.
With warmth all year round, Middle East family holidays are the perfect choice over the Christmas and Easter holidays or Autumn and Spring half terms. The heat in this region during the summer months can be oppressive, but with great, air-conditioned indoor facilities and balmy evenings to enjoy, that doesn’t have to be a bar to a summer holiday in the Middle East. What’s more, as summer is considered ‘low season’, there are some incredible deals to be had over the long school holidays.
