Staycations with that much-needed dose of vitamin sea…

Earlier in the week we looked at three hotels, all based on Saadiyat Island, that had opened up their stretches of shoreline for in-house guests.

Since then, several more hotels along with some on the Corniche have shored-up their offerings, creating an exciting range of staycation options in the capital. Here’s where you dive-in…
