Take a weekend break in Jebel Dhanna


THE need to escape is one strongly recognised by Danat Resort Jebel Dhanna, the five-star lifestyle beach resort on the west coast of the UAE.

The hotel has rolled out special weekend rates, so ‘summer bachelors’ and families alike can get away for a couple of days.
Weekend rates, over either a Wednesday/Thursday or a Thursday/Friday, are available at Dh750 net for two nights in a double room, inclusive of breakfast, with free accommodation for children under the age of 12. One-night rates are Dh350 net for one person, and Dh400 net for two, both inclusive of breakfast.
The hotel has only 109 rooms, all of which are sea-facing. If a guest requires more privacy, the resort also offers six private waterfront villas on the beach. The resort is the ideal place for those seeking personalized service, a serene environment and a private beach for total relaxation.
Indoor facilities at the resort include the popular eight-hour happy hour at L’attitude either playing pool or enjoying the live show till late at night; Zaitoun, the fine dining restaurant; gym facilities, sauna, steam rooms and indoor and outdoor massages.
The outdoor pool is temperature-controlled and includes a bar which is the perfect spot for a cool down. If you can brave the heat and warm water, the azure blue water of the Arabian Gulf is the perfect location for some swimming and snorkelling. Nine kilometres from the resort is the beautiful nature reserve of Sir Bani Yas Island, and daily tours are available.
