When is the perfect time to book a winter sun holiday with Scott Dunn? Right now, because early booking gives you more choice, plus more chance of getting your children one of the coveted places at Scott Dunn Explorers Kids Clubs or even free childcare on family ski holidays.
Why book your Abu Dhabi winter sun holiday just now?
Flights taking just under seven hours from the UK have brought Abu Dhabi firmly into focus for families thinking about an autumn or winter sun holiday. The fact that there’s no jet lag to cope with is another big plus. And, of course, the weather is guaranteed wonderful all year round, but from September through to early March, temperatures are European-summer warm: perfect for outdoor activities and Abu Dhabi’s world famous theme parks, as well as all those lovely Arabian Gulf beaches.
New Scott Dunn Explorers Kids Club at Saadiyat Rotana Resort & Villas
With all that in mind, it’s easy to see why Scott Dunn are particularly excited to share the news about the brand new Scott Dunn Explorers Kids Club which has just opened at Saadiyat Rotana Resort & Villas on Saadiyat Island.
Designed for children aged between six months and 11 years, the new club sticks with all the very best Scott Dunn traditions like fully trained staff; activity programmes for different age groups; play carefully balanced with learning; outstanding facilities, and its own purpose-built and imaginatively realised space.
Take a night off with Stargazers evening childcare
However, it’s not shy on originality and parents are already making good noises about several innovations. Unsurprisingly, Stargazers evening childcare from 8pm to 10pm is proving very popular. Who doesn’t want to enjoy a little grown-up time at a grown up time of day now and again?
Another bright idea, the ‘sleep room’, is also getting a lot of parental praise. Not least because it’s so well designed, right down to a mix of cots and toddler beds.
But the most important critics of all are kids themselves, and while it might be tricky to pin down one single point of excellence, there’s no doubt playtime on the beach is a big favourite. Activity programmes packed with splashy play, sports, water sports and outdoor adventures, score high as well. Plus, carefully planned age groups makes for a very sociable environment, so holiday friends are a given, just as they should be.
Book Saadiyat Rotana take advantage of the all-inclusive dining option
If you’re thinking October half-term sunshine, as we said, Saadiyat Rotana is an easy fit for shorter school holidays. And, as it’s set on the best beach in the UAE, a mix of indulgent luxury, fun energy and laid-back atmosphere makes it a great fit for families.
There are sports off and on the water to keep teenagers busy, and The Zen Spa beckons parents when younger kids are playing up a storm at Explorers Kids Club. Plus, if the combo of multi-gen and winter sun are on your mind right now, Saadiyat Rotana is ideal for larger families, thanks to an extraordinary range of rooms and suites, as well as family villas, with their own pools.
In more exciting news, Scott Dunn family holidays also come with an all-inclusive Dine Around option letting you relax and enjoy all seven of the resort’s remarkable restaurants during your stay, without thinking about costs. And if this is the winter to introduce your kids to new tastes, you’ll find almost every world cuisine represented here. Probably why Saadiyat Rotana choose to describe Dine Around as a, ‘culinary journey’
Last word on this wonderful Abu Dhabi resort: don’t forget Scott Dunn Explorers Kids Club’ places always get snapped up early, so it’s worth taking a look at what’s available now and claiming a spot. You do not want to be the parent at Saadiyat Rotana trying to explain missing out to your children: there isn’t enough ice cream in the world to sweeten that disappointment!
