The UAE is about to mark its 50th birthday, not only does this mean enormous celebrations around the UAE, but it also means a cheeky little holiday for us to enjoy. The break will begin December 1st which will be a Commemoration Day – a holiday to honour those who lost their lives serving the country. Thursday 2nd of December will mark the UAE’s 50th birthday, the Golden Jubilee celebration, which will be celebrated by events across the country, and will be the final public holiday of 2021.

In preparation for the upcoming holiday, we have gathered getaways around the UAE, KSA and Qatar for you and your family to enjoy.

The Oberoi Beach resort, Al Zorah

Al Zorah is just a short drive from Dubai, but once you arrive it will feel like you’ve stepped into paradise. With the lush green mangroves on one side of the resort and the azure blue Arabian Gulf on the other, it is an idyllic escape from the hustle and bustle of urban life. Guests can enjoy incredible views from the highest point of the resort while basking in the sun on a private terrace, relaxing in the evening beside the spectacular contemporary fireplace, or in the suite’s luxurious bathtub.
