Sponsored: Making the most wonderful time of year, a bit more wonderful…

One of Abu Dhabi’s best-respected names in hospitality, Rotana has a year-round mission of spreading cheer and uplifting spirits — but over the festive period, that commitment to merry-making levels up yet further.

The brand’s hotels in the emirate — Saadiyat Rotana Resort & Villas; Beach Rotana; Park Rotana; Pearl Rotana Capital Centre; Al Maha Arjaan by Rotana; Centro Al Manhal; Capital Centre Arjaan; Centro Capital Centre; Al Ain Rotana and Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan — each have packed individual Christmas and New Year’s itineraries and, as a gift to you, we’ve selected just a few of our favourite experiences for you to unwrap this festive season.

Time to Laugh

The capital’s clutch of Rotana properties will enjoy a merry old makeover for the festive season. And it’s a glow-up that goes beyond festive aesthetics, with activities like gingerbread house decorating, and special offerings from seasonal treats to turkey takeaways.

Time to Gather

Rotana hotels will be as busy as Santa’s workshop throughout December, bringing families and friends closer, and dishing up entertainment treats. Whether you’re in the mood for a beachfront Christmas brunch, an extravagant Christmas lunch or a sing-song around the tree at a festive lighting ceremony, Rotana gives the best reasons to gather.

Time to Chill

There’s no shortage of festive feasting on offer across the Rotana hotels, with their A-List range of restaurants putting on seasonal spreads for the big Christmas and NY days. And with it being such a busy time of year, Rotana is coming down your chimney with the gift of relaxation — from takeaway turkeys to entertainment-packed brunches, from special dinners with visits from the man in red to gala New Year’s Eve parties. But one of the best ways to find and preserve that inner ‘ahhh’ is with the hotels’ room packages, long stay deals and special festive staycation promotions. Rotana is all about taking the pressure off you, and giving you… Time to chill.

Time to Glitter

Make sure you start 2023 off on the right foot — with Rotana’s collection of New Year’s Eve extravaganzas. The Abu Dhabi hotels have a blend of wild nights and more wholesome, family-friendly adventures on offer — depending on how you want your night to play out. What unites them all though, is when you decide to bid farewell to 2022 and start your new year with Rotana, it’s a kick-off that’s covered in glitter.
