Uncover dream destinations…
Book a twin-centre with Etihad Airways
Abu Dhabi is a jewel in Arabia’s crown where flying carpets, enchanted lamps and magical genies would not look out of place. A desert paradise that boasts seven impressive marinas, a wealth of pristine beaches, and designer shops in abundance; there’s an Abu Dhabi to suit everyone.
Abu Dhabi radiates an extremely high level of luxury which touches each hotel and resort and creates a sophisticated getaway, accompanied by fascinating history and mystical sights. This makes Abu Dhabi the ideal place to visit as a stand-alone destination, or as part of one of our fantastic twin-centre holidays below.
Abu Dhabi & Thailand
Arrive in approx. 16 hours from London
Etihad Airways fly London to Bangkok and Phuket in just under 16 hours with a stopover in Abu Dhabi. So turning your Thailand trip into a twin-centre holiday with a few days in Abu Dhabi en route is practically planned for you already!
Abu Dhabi provides a sensational combination of luxury and city living, before you step off the plane and slow things right down with island life in Phuket. Take in the wonder of Arabia with shimmering skyscrapers and hotels that appear too good to be true, then lose yourself in the natural beauty of Phuket as dense jungles and gorgeous beaches provide the ultimate backdrop for beautiful sunsets.
Abu Dhabi & Maldives
Arrive in approx. 14 hours from London
Your plane to paradise with Etihad Airways stops in Abu Dhabi on the way, so why not hop off for a few days to experience the ancient culture before continuing on to the palm-fringed beaches of the Maldives.
This twin-centre creates a holiday packed with just the right amount of sightseeing and beach chilling so that you return home feeling both enlightened and rested. The extravagant hotels, shopping malls and dining facilities will deliver an indulgent few days in Abu Dhabi, and although show-stopping skyscrapers will then be swapped for coconut palms and colourful reefs, you’ll feel just as pampered in the Maldives.
Abu Dhabi & Kuala Lumpur
Arrive in approx. 16 hours from London
Combine a heavenly villa stay at the Pangkor Laut Resort with a short stay in the Arabian gem that is Abu Dhabi. Etihad Airways makes a connecting flight here en route to Kuala Lumpur, so disembark for a few days of discovery before continuing your journey.
This twin-centre is the ideal escape for couples as the Pangkor Laut Resort will whisk you away to a world of romance and elegance hidden amongst ancient rainforests and unbelievable beaches. Wake up to an emerald sea glistening beneath your stilted villa and reach new heights of relaxation in the award-winning Spa Village. A short stop in Abu Dhabi before this adds an extra touch of luxury and extravagance, as well as the chance to explore the culture and traditions of an unspoiled desert destination.
Abu Dhabi & Australia
Arrive in approx. 23 hours from London
It’s a long flight to Australia from the UK, so why not break it up and make more of your holiday with a stay in Abu Dhabi. Etihad Airways fly to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth, all via Abu Dhabi.
Experience the modernity and luxury of Abu Dhabi, followed by the awe-inspiring nature that has established Australia as the ‘trip of a lifetime’. Australia is a landscape with a little bit of everything going on; lush, green rainforests, the iconic outback, bustling cities and, not forgetting every surfer’s paradise, the beaches. A holiday doesn’t get much more varied that one to Australia – except of course when you combine it with a visit to Abu Dhabi!
