Middle East Holidays

alluring landscapes

The desert kingdoms of the Middle East have emerged in recent years as some of the most sought-after luxury holiday destinations in the world. Mysterious bedouin landscapes, soaring mountain ranges and glistening gulf waters offer stark contrast to the ultra-modern cities and world-beating sky-scrapers.

Luxury Holidays to the Middle East

Luxury holidays in the Middle East are typified by gorgeous weather and elegant accommodation. In the last 15 years this beautiful region has built itself into one of world travel's most popular tourist destinations, and Kenwood Travel has been there every step of the way. The Kenwood Travel Arabia team are dedicated Middle East experts, and will work to find you a holiday that is hand-crafted to suit your budget and taste, creating the perfect Dubai, Abu Dhabi or Oman holiday. You'll also discover great getaways to Doha and 'Beyond Dubai' too.

Luxury Holidays to Dubai

The UAE reveals a wide variety of scenery in a small area; in a single day visitors can experience everything from rugged mountains and wistful sand dunes to sandy beaches and lush green oases. In striking contrast, the futuristic city of Dubai – the UAE’s most famous emirate – stands as a luxury HQ from which to explore this enchanting nature, while also discovering the superb dining, shopping, culture and theme parks of the city itself. At Kenwood Travel, our expert Arabia team can help you plan a trip hand-crafted to your style, while always attaining the highest standards of luxury. After all, that's what visitors to Dubai expect, and our direct-contract hotels such as Atlantis, The Palm and Jumeirah Zabeel Saray exemplify and exceed Dubai's reputation for high-end accommodation and hospitality.

Luxury Holidays to Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi has always been a special place. However, until recently the emirate remained an undiscovered jewel on the international travel map. Today, more and more overseas visitors are discovering this unique and captivating destination. A luxury Abu Dhabi holiday offers all the attractions of a top class international resort with a taste of something extra. It combines year-round sunshine and superb facilities for leisure and recreation with the spice and mystique of an Arabian adventure, bursting with ancient heritage and high-octane pursuits such as Ferrari World.

Beyond Dubai

Dubai’s A-list appeal shines even brighter thanks to a supporting cast of equally entertaining destinations. Beyond Dubai there are some fantastic beach resorts, such as Fujairah, Ajman and Ras Al Khaimah, where unspoilt coastlines offer a taste of authentic Arabia. Short transfer times make each of these destinations a convenient option for a brilliant Middle East holiday alternative, and they’re all served by Dubai International Airport too. Airport transfer times are as follows: Fujairah – 90 mins; Ras Al Khaimah – 50 mins; Ajman – 40 mins.

Luxury Holidays to Oman

Muscat, the capital city of Oman, sparkles with golden minarets and lies in the midst of a maze of pleated mountains reaching down to the Arabian Sea. Described as ‘Arabia's Jewel’, this city is a blend of the old and the new. Discover Oman’ coastline and culture with Kenwood Travel and indulge in one of the best Middle East holidays on offer.

Multi Centre Trips in The Middle East

If you’re finding it difficult to settle on just one destination or resort, why not opt for a twin centre holiday? We’ll arrange any combination of destinations, allowing you to experience more of what this great region has to offer. For example, how about three nights in Dubai before moving on to Thailand or Malaysia? Staying within the UAE is ideal for twin centres too. For example, Ajman and Fujairah can add coastal calm to your holiday without the need for internal flights. Call our Arabia experts and bring the art of escape to your holiday with a multi-centre holiday in the Middle East. Middle East Multi Centres

Weather in the Middle East

As you can imagine, the weather in the Middle East can get pretty hot, with temperatures soaring over 40° C during the summer months. Still, hardcore watersports enthusiasts and sun-worshippers will certainly enjoy the heat from July through September. Temperatures during the rest of the year however tend to be fairly mild, with many destinations boasting an eternal spring-like climate. Temperatures in the desert can vary drastically from day to night, with differences of as much as 28° C.
