Stay safe, stay entertained, stay in luxury, staycay in Abu Dhabi…

The Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) has launched a ‘Rediscover Abu Dhabi’ campaign to help residents and tourists get the best out of the emirate this summer.

Rediscover Abu Dhabi’s mission is to seek out and share great deals on an accessible, affordable range of luxury hotels and entertainment activities in Abu Dhabi.

It’s running in tandem with the DCT’s Go Safe scheme, the primary function of which is to provide a transparent, confidence-inspiring, high-level, certified safety and hygiene standard across Abu Dhabi attractions and facilities.

146 hotels in the capitals have now been given the Go Safe seal of safety approval.

And if you need a reminder of what’s waiting for you out there in Abu Dhabi, this beautiful video should put some warm shivers of civic pride up your spine.

But what can residents look forward to in terms of great deals on (safe) hotel stays and entertainment?
