There are only few urban areas on the planet which have had such a dramatic course of events as that of Abu Dhabi. From an abandoned zone with just few Bedouin towns only a century prior, it has now begun to rank amongst trade, finance and commercial centers of the world. Abu Dhabi is dunked into extravagance, and without much astonishes, it is thought to be a standout amongst the most costly urban communities of the world to live in. However, don't let the notoriety stop you; soaking up luxuries here is a lot easier than what the general thought is.
Changes in the business paradigms and the resultant developing rivalry among different top-end lodgings, has made them resort to seasonal discounts and package holidays to pick up an edge over their rivals.
Hotels now endeavor to offer best in class services at competitive prices going from exquisite spas to private water parks, to finest feasting and grand shopping centers. Also the city's laws, limit the serving of liquor to bars and clubs inside the premises of a hotel, thusly large number of guests end up sparing major part of their holidays within the premises of the resorts. Therefore resorts are an important part of one's vacation in Abu Dhabi.We have picked up wisely 5 hotels of Abu Dhabi whose extravagance can be afforded by almost every pocket size.
