Aworld-class hol­i­day doesn’t have to in­volve a plane ticket, at least not when you live in the UAE. With new lux­ury ho­tels, nu­mer­ous mu­se­ums and an ar­ray of leisure op­tions across the coun­try, a stay­ca­tion is the ideal so­lu­tion for a week­end away. Whether you want to re­main in Dubai or Abu Dhabi or are keen to ven­ture fur­ther afield, ex­plor­ing some of the lesser-pop­u­lated emi­rates, we take a look at the finest short-haul of­fer­ings that the coun­try has to of­fer. From all-out lux­ury in a pala­tial re­sort, to end­less sand dunes and thriv­ing na­ture re­serves, there’s an end­less list of things to do, des­ti­na­tions to visit and places to stay. And now is a good time for a fi­nal stay­ca­tion be­fore the ad­di­tion of five per cent VAT that starts in

Jan­uary.
