84 Here Comes The Sun: Top Ho­tels.

RODA BEACH RE­SORT, JUMEIRAH

If you’re a sea­soned sum­mer stay­cay-er and have been to just about all the best ho­tels the re­gion has to of­fer, opt to stay in one of the city’s new­est ho­tels – the Roda Beach Re­sort – and you won’t be dis­ap­pointed. Lo­cated in Jumeirah right next to Sun­set Mall, the ho­tel, which wel­comed its first guests in April, fronts onto Kite Beach, of­fer­ing spec­tac­u­lar views of the Ara­bian Gulf. It has 58 vil­las and chalets to choose from, rang­ing from one to five bed­room op­tions, as well as an on-site restau­rant, state-of-the-art gym and out­door pool. Take ad­van­tage of the city’s slower pace in the com­ing month and avail your­self of the ho­tel’s great rates, start­ing at just Dhs499 for ac­com­mo­da­tion and break­fast. This is a city break, re­de­fined. Ro­da­ho­tels.com or +971 4 304 7000

FAIR­MONT BAB AL BAHR, ABU DHABI

As far as views of land­marks in the UAE go, fac­ing the beau­ti­ful Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is most cer­tainly one of the best and a stay in the Fair­mont Bab al Bahr means you’ll have just that. You’ll also have beau­ti­ful views of the ocean and a swim-up bar in the pool. Plus, the ho­tel is home to two out of three Miche­lin starred chef Marco Pierre White’s restau­rants - we sug­gest book­ing in Frankie’s for the bu­falina pizza – so your taste­buds are in for a treat too. This month, take ad­van­tage of the 36-hour week­end pack­age, where you can en­joy a one night stay, buf­fet break­fast, brunch, lunch and a late check­out of 6pm for two peo­ple, start­ing from just Dhs1,399. You’re guar­an­teed to wish there were more hours in the stay. Fair­mont.com/abu-dhabi or +971 2 654 3333
