Luxury Middle East Holidays

Countries in the Middle East might all share the same religion and general weather pattern, but that apart, each offers a totally different holiday experience.  So talk to one of the Middle East specialists from Beaches & Retreats at Western & Oriental to determine which destination suits you.

Dubai

Proudly hedonistic, Dubai is an international playground with iconic hotels. Total contrasts can be found everywhere, from camels on dirt tracks just yards away from Lamborghinis and Ferraris on super-highways. Choose Dubai for a dynamic city holiday with fantastic shopping , restaurant choice and nightlife, combined with stunning beaches just minutes away.

Abu Dhabi

Rivalling Dubai as the commercial powerhouse in the region, but more reserved, in virtually everything. The United Arab Emirate of Abu Dhabi is well planned yet traditional, with excellent shopping and desert drives.

The Emirates Palace is regarded as one of the very best hotels in the region while the new Desert Islands Resort is our selection for a unique experience of sun, sand and safari.

Oman

Completely different., Oman offers just a handful of international hotels and lessin the way of shopping, nightlife or land sporting activity than its neighbours, with the exception of dune driving. The pleasures here are the superb beaches, the easygoing but respectful hospitality, the culture and sense of history.

Jordan

Jordan can truly be described to be like nowhere else on earth.  A magnificent scenic backdrop of splendid mountain and desert with a truly rich archaeologocal and cultural history, dating back to biblical times and beyond.  2012 is a particularly important year for Jordan as Petra celebrates its 200th Anniversary!

Amidst its deserts, wadis and mountains, it offers an indefinable romantic aura reminiscent of Lawrence of Arabia, which has impressed honeymooners and other travellers alike for centuries. Immerse cyoursdelves in the souk of Amman, relive Roman history in Jerash, trek the peaceful Nature Reserves, relax by the beach, admire wondrous Petra by candlelight and even enjoy a spot of camel trekking!
Jordan revels in spectacular diversity.
