Hidden away among towering dunes, Arabian Nights Village showcases the soul of old Arabia. Created for travellers to experience the magical and timeless beauty of the desert and authentic aspects of traditional Emirati life, this wonderful stay begins with experienced guides transporting you over the dunes to a charming old-world village with all the modern-day comforts. Entering through a picturesque courtyard, you will see two traditional-style watchtowers, Zakher and Al Manhal. These are named after the residences of the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, The Father of the Nation and Founder of the UAE.

The four types of accommodation – Bedouin tents (Bayt Al Shaaer), palm houses (Bayt Al Bahar), desert houses (Bayt Al Bar) and The Fort Tower (Al Manha) – each offer unique and authentic Arabian interiors that reflect the culture of Abu Dhabi and transport guests to the emirate’s rich past.
