Without the chaos and huge crowds of Dubai but with all of the glamour and decadence, Abu Dhabi is the perfect place to combine a laid back beach holiday with an indulgent splurge or two. After three nights here, you'll take things to an almost horizontal level and spend a further seven or nine nights at a hip beach resort on the insanely chilled out, mind-bogglingly beautiful island of Sri Lanka.One of the world's most exciting new developments, Abu Dhabi is on-track to become the cultural gem of the Middle East, with both a Louvre and Guggenheim gallery set to open within the next two years. Already, the city's character is one of ultra-chic boutique hotels, fine restaurants, day spas and beach clubs and the Yas Island Rotana fits right in. Located on Yas Island, this sleek hotel boasts award-winning dining, a lagoon-like pool, a wellness centre and floodlit tennis courts. Positioned just off the southern coast of India, the teardrop-shaped island of Sri Lanka is a paradise of emerald-green rainforest and sugary sands. This kaleidoscopic destination boasts some of the wildest, most exotic scenery in the Indian Ocean, with elephants, dolphins and leopards all residents of the island. Spend the final part of your holiday on the southern coast, at the Ranna 212 Tangalle Resort, which sits directly on the beach and offers a large outdoor pool, a luxe spa and an array of stylish dining options. Good to knowPlease note that your inbound flight are overnight and your outbound flight may also be overnight, so please bear this in mind when planning your holiday.
