Holidays in the Sun (reprise)
One of the advantages of living in Dubai is the opportunity to explore the beaches and resorts around the various Emirates and over the last couple of years we have been lucky enough to visit RAK (staying at the Cove Rotana, Hilton resort), Abu Dhabi (Al Raha Beach, the Hyatt Gate as well as the Hilton at Al Ain), Fujairah (Le Meridien - probably my favourite Hotel), Um al Quaine and Dubai itself (Sheraton JBR and Habtoor Grand). As Dad is in town we thought we would try the new St Regius resort in Abu Dhabi. Of course no sooner had I booked it then various colleagues were suggesting that it has not yet been finished! (I thought that is seemed rather cheap considering it apparantly includes Butler Service...). In any event, we are keeping our fingers crossed that at least the roof is on when we arrive on Friday. Wish us luck.
