It’s a first world problem we’ve all faced – sometimes, the beach is simply too far away from your hotel room. But the good news is there’s a place in Abu Dhabi where you can wake up, open your front door and take one small step straight on to warm, soft sand.

The Danat Jebel Dhanna Resort, in the emirate’s Western Region, has recently opened 24 beachside chalets, which offer stunning views of the Arabian Gulf and most importantly, plenty of sand between your toes.

You’ll find two types of chalet at the resort – Beachfront and Premium Beachfront. The Premium chalets are situated directly on the beach, the others you’ll find just a stone’s throw away behind it.

Each chalet has a private patio and garden with seating – just imagine kicking back and listening to the ocean while enjoying breakfast alfresco on your porch, before strolling down to the water to take a dip.

Inside each chalet you’ll find a twin or king-size bed and if you’re taking the whole family, you can request interconnecting chalets, so your kids can have some freedom in their own accommodation. All rooms have LED TVs, DVD players, free Wi-Fi, a minibar, tea and coffee, plus private parking. Put simply, you’ll have plenty of reasons to stay in one place during your visit.

A night in one of the chalets costs just Dhs699 and you’ll get a 20 per cent discount off the hotel’s spa and dining outlets as well (such as all-day dining outlet Tides and fine-dining Italian restaurant Zaitoun). And if you’re after a more active holiday while there, you can have a crack at some of watersports available at the hotel, including snorkeling, kayaking, deep-sea fishing and wakeboarding.

So if you’re desperate for a heavenly seaside escape in the UAE capital, then we suggest you get booking a chalet at the Danat Jebel Dhanna Resort today.
