Escape to a plush Abu Dhabi hotel on impressive Yas Island
When you've had your fill of sunning and shopping, make a splash at Yas Waterworld, where you can cool off on 43 aqua-inspired rides, slides and attractions. Even closer is the Yas Links, an exceptional championship golf course overlooked by the hotel. Head to Yas Island Marina to take a seaplane tour of the deserts and cities of the UAE. Just an hour's drive away you'll find Abu Dhabi’s glitzier cousin, Dubai. Here, you can check out such wonders as the towering Burj Khalifa and much-lauded Dubai Mall.
