Sponsored: There’s a lot going on inside Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort this festive season…

If you make your way to Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort over the next few weeks, and you listen very carefully and you might just be able to hear sleigh bells against the soothing sounds of shoreline wash.

The stunning desert island hotel has a sackful of seasonal celebration sessions to help get you in the festive spirit.

But if you want to get involved, you’ll have to move fast, the events are proving to be pretty popular. The Christmas Day meals at Mare Mare and White have both now sold out, but there’s still room left at the Offside Sports Lounge for their all-you-can-eat Christmas barbecue.

And we can’t think of a more authentic symbol for the yuletide period than, ‘eating as much as you can’. This festive barbie is offering alfresco grills between midday and 4pm on December 25 for just Dhs195. You can add on a two-hour beverage package for Dhs189 (0r Dhs228 to make it three hours).
