The year 2018 marks 100 years since the birth of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the Founding Father of the UAE, who passed away in 2004.
To commemorate this historic national occasion, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the United Arab Emirates has declared that 2018 will officially be known in the UAE as the Year of Zayed.
The Year of Zayed will feature a series of events and initiatives in the UAE and internationally, designed to commemorate the memory of the late Sheikh Zayed, and showcase his impact and legacy, and promote the values that he displayed throughout his life in creative and interactive ways.
Consistent with the values of the late Sheikh Zayed, it is intended that the Year of Zayed will involve people of all ages, nationalities, faiths and backgrounds in the UAE and internationally.

I just love this part of the world; I love the heat, the sand, the lifestyle and the people. From beautiful beaches to record-breaking buildings, Dubai has so much to offer that it's hard not to fall in love with it!
Kite Beach is my favourite spot and I go almost every weekend. I feel like I’m being welcomed home as soon as I see the kite surfers rolling over the waves and hear the call to prayer. It’s a vibrant, trendy beach where I like to meet with friends, take a seat outside and soak in the wonderful atmosphere surrounded by funky cafes, delicious food trucks and great local musicians. It’s also my place once a month to do full moon yoga, listen to the waves and restore energy to my chakras.
Then there’s the sun. In Dubai it’s so big and orange - you can’t really understand it until you’ve seen it. Of all the beautiful spots I’ve found for sunset, I would say the best is from the terrace of the Bahri Bar in Mina A’Salam, which offers an amazing view over Madinat Jumeirah and the majestic Burj Al Arab.
Another thing I love about Dubai is its idyllic escapes when you need a little pampering. The city is home to some of the best spas in the world, like the Talise Spa in Madinat Jumeirah, the Amara Spa in the Park Hyatt or The Heavenly Spa by Westin, to name just a few. When my family comes to visit meanwhile, I love taking them to old Dubai by hopping on an Abra, a traditional fishing boat, and sailing across the water from Deira to Bur Dubai.
For more romantic getaways, I always recommend the Ritz-Carlton Al Wadi Desert in Ras Al Khaimah, which offers luxury pool villas inspired by Bedouin architecture and a beautiful setting in a nature reserve. But I have to say there is nothing more romantic than watching the sun set over the Arabian Desert. A short thirty-minute drive from home takes us to never-ending dunes where we can sink our feet in the sand, roll down the sides, or just enjoy some marshmallows grilled over a fire pit.
We are very proud and excited to announce that SITE - The Society for Incentive Travel Excellence has awarded Arabian Adventures Meetings, Incentives and Events the prestigious Crystal Award for Excellence in Incentive Travel for the Middle East and Africa 2017.

Located in the haunting landscape of the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve and ideal for team building, a special event or just for fun, the latest additions to Arabian Adventures’ award-winning range of desert safaris have now opened.
Desert Laser Tag is best described as paintball without the pain (or paint) and allows teams of up to twelve to battle their friends or colleagues across a dune arena the size of two football fields. For those who prefer to get behind the wheel meanwhile, you can now take control of one of our custom designed off-road dune buggies and explore the hidden trails of this unforgettable landscape.
The UAE’s deserts are pristine pieces of breathtaking natural beauty, which is why we’re proud to announce that Arabian Adventures has won the Dubai Sustainable Tourism Award 2017 for best adventure camps. Created as part of Dubai’s aim to become the most sustainable city in the world, the award recognises commitment to preserving the country’s unique landscape and culture across five key areas of environmental practice – water energy and carbon sustainability, continuous improvement, waste and environmental protection, responsible practices and training and awareness.
Dubai Sustainable Tourism Awards are held to recognise those companies within the tourism sector that have demonstrated good practices when it comes to reducing the company’s carbon footprint, in efforts to promote sustainability of the tourism industry.
