Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
90 guests, a client in the Building Materials & Construction sector
4 nights, October 2018
Staying at the 5* St Regis Adi Saadiyat (a luxury beach-front resort), the group arrived in Abu Dhabi and were transferred to the hotel for an exclusive welcome dinner in Sontoya Restaurant. After Breakfast the following day, the group kayaked through local mangroves seeing the wildlife and enjoyed lunch at the Anantara Eastern Mangroves Hotel taking in the beautiful view. In the evening a drinks reception was held on the terrace of Li Jang Restaurant located in the Ritz Carlton Hotel, the terrace overlooks the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, which is a spectacle lit up in the evening.
Day 3 and the group were taken to Al Maya Island for their private beach and pool party. Great music in the sunshine with fabulous food and great company, there are definitely worse places to spend a Wednesday afternoon! To top off this very special day the guests arrived for drinks on the terrace and a superb Asian-fusion supper at the award-winning restaurant, Hakkasan Abu Dhabi.
Your time in the UAE would not be complete without the desert experience, so mid-afternoon the group depart the hotel in 4x4 jeeps and after an hour's drive are in the middle of the vast Liwa desert, dune bashing with your experienced driver. Afterwards the guests enjoyed the sunset with a champagne drinks reception and falconry show before a private desert dinner with Arabic entertainment.
The client and guests alike commented that this was “the best trip ever done”, and that it had set the bar for all future incentives!
