Abu Dhabi presents an elegant fusion, blurring the boundaries between Arabian heritage and futuristic innovation. It’s a place of tradition, yet also an Emirate that delights in creating new expressions of architecture design. With a one-night stopover it’s eminently possible to get a keen sense of Abu Dhabi’s style and substance as long as you’re smart about your time. At the heart of this one-night stopover is the 25-minute Abu Dhabi Snapshot, a stunning aerial flight that captures the essence of the city and its world-renowned marvels. Soar above the red roof of Ferrari World, the countless domes of the Emirates Palace, the curves of the Formula 1 Circuit, and the shimmering beauty of Yas Marina, filled with super yachts and surreal architecture. During these 25 minutes you also gaze down on the heritage of Abu Dhabi and the unerring tradition of the city.
The rest of the day is yours to create your own angle. History is very much alive in this city, through the people you meet and the architecture you experience. Explore the heritage with an Abu Dhabi Discovery Tour, an afternoon of connecting with the region’s tradition. Experience the wonder of the Grand Mosque, with its elegant lines and exquisite interior. Then continue your walk across marble at the Emirates Palace. Another side of Abu Dhabi is experienced at Yas Waterworld or the world’s biggest theme park, Abu Dhabi Ferrari World.
After the beguiling Snapshot flight, you have time to delve deeper into your own side of Abu Dhabi, whether that’s heritage, architecture, or the serenity around the Yas Marina. Completing the stopover, and celebrating Abu Dhabi’s intimate attention to detail, is a one-night stay in a deluxe mangrove balcony room at the Eastern Mangrove Hotel. It’s an idyllic place to relax and complete the immersion in Abu Dhabi’s unique hospitality.
