Explore the glittering modernity of the city and discover the architectural and artistic brilliance of the new Louvre before escaping to Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort, with nesting Hawksbill Turtles for company. Perfect for nature lovers, Sir Bani Yas Island, where the resort is located is home to over 10,000 animals including Arabian oryx, giraffes, hyenas and cheetahs.

With luxurious hotels set beside the sparkling waters of the Arabian Gulf, wonderful dining terraces and relaxing spas, there’s no need to worry about anything other than applying the suntan lotion here during the festive season.

 

Arguably the shopping capital of the world, Dubai is a fantastic place to indulge in present buying. You can shop for pretty trinkets at the Festive Market in Souk Madinat, followed by a delicious lunch or dinner in one of 50 bars and restaurants nestled in the resort’s picturesque waterways.

The Maldives

What better way to bring in the new year than with an idyllic island escape? Wake up to a floating breakfast atop the crystalline blue waters of your private pool in the comfort of your water villa or treat yourself to a well-deserved spa day with our signature treatments in our overwater sanctuary, Talise Spa. Alternatively, just spread your towel out and bask in the sunshine or snorkel the coral reefs to explore the beauty of the underwater world surrounding our island.

For those looking for seasonal cheer, the Jumeirah Maldives Olhahali Island festive celebrations include fun-filled activities for the junior guests, a gala dinner under the stars and a New Year’s celebration featuring live entertainment, food and fireworks.
