Accommodation in the UAE is of a very high standard. Most of the world’s top hotel chains run five-star hotels in all the seven emirates and locally based companies operate luxurious destinations and popular resorts. Several hotels are outstanding examples of modern architecture and the decor and facilities throughout are exceptional. Most waterfront hotels have excellent beaches and extensive watersports facilities. If your budget does not extend to a five-star hotel, there are alternatives, most also of a high standard.

Abu Dhabi City has added a considerable number of desirable resorts to its portfolio, on the mangrove-lined shores of the eastern Corniche and the beach-fringed Saadiyat and Yas islands. Away from the main cities, spectacular destinations, such as the Desert Islands Resort on Sir Bani Yas island, the dramatically located Qasr Al Sarab in the famous 'Empty Quarter' (the largest sand desert in the world), and the Banyan Tree Al Wadi in a remote region of Ra's al-Khaimah, have added impressive variety and value to the growing list of accommodation in the UAE. Fujairah, on the east coast, has also invested heavily in hotels and resorts.
