In the last 15 years this area has built itself into one of the world's most popular tourist destinations, and Kenwood Travel have been there every step of the way. The Kenwood Travel staff are Middle East experts and will work to find something to suit your budget and taste, creating the perfect Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Oman holidays.

Luxury Holidays to Dubai

The UAE embodies a wide variety of scenery in a very small area. In a single day a traveller can experience everything from rugged mountains and wistful sand dunes to sandy beaches and lush green parks. Kenwood Travel can help you plan a trip that will satisfy all styles, while attaining the highest standards of luxury. Afterall, that's what visitors to Dubai expect, and our direct-contract hotels such as Ajman Saray, a Luxury Collection Resort and Fujairah Rotana Resort & Spa truly exemplify and even 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.

Luxury Holidays to Oman

Muscat, the capital city of Oman, sparkles with golden minarets and lies in the midst of a maze of brown 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 and indulge in one of the best Middle East holidays on offer.

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.

Multi Centre Trips in The Middle East

If picking the perfect destination and resort is too difficult, why not opt for a twin centre holiday? We’ll arrange any combination of areas, allowing you to experience more of what this great region has to offer. For example why not take a three night Dubai holiday 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 experts to create a unique multi centre Middle East holiday. 

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.

Ramadan in the Middle East

Ramadan is the month of fasting when Muslims abstain from all food, drinks and smoking from dawn to dusk. As a sign of respect, visitors to the Middle East are also requested to refrain from consuming these items in public places during the daylight hours of this month.

If you are a non-fasting visitor, your international hotel or resort will provide you with food and beverage outlets during the day. Most activities run as normal during Ramadan, so you can visit golf clubs, sports centres, shopping malls and spas. Although it's recommended you check opening hours before you visit as they may vary during the Holy Month.

The dates for Ramadan 2018 are 16 May - 14 June. Visitors to the Middle East during this time should be aware that opening times may vary and some restrictions may apply. Please speak to your Middle East specialist at Kenwood Travel for more information.
