Remarkable Abu Dhabi

Beautiful golf course in Abu Dhabi

Don’t miss out on the wealth of attractions, adventures and experiences Abu Dhabi has to offer


Ferrari World

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, opened in November 2010, is the world’s first Ferrari theme park and the largest attraction of its kind.

With about 20 rides and attractions beneath the striking 2.15 million-square-foot red roof, the park pays tribute to the passion, excellence, performance and technical innovation that Ferrari has established over the years and continues to represent today. Visitors can enjoy the thrill of some of the world’s most inventive rides, including Formula Rossa (the world’s fastest rollercoaster), eye-catching surroundings and the authentic tastes and aromas of Italy. Ferrari World Abu Dhabi offers amusement for all ages.


Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque

The ornate Sheikh Zayed Mosque, likely the most imposing landmark in Abu Dhabi, can accommodate 40,000 worshippers and is one of the largest mosques in the world.

The burial site for its namesake, Sheikh Zayed, the mosque features 80 domes decorated in white marble, 1,000 columns inlaid with semi-precious stones, the world’s largest hand-woven carpet and seven 24K gold-plated chandeliers – again including the world’s largest – that incorporate thousands of Swarovski crystals. Open to nonworshippers Saturday through Thursday, it is the only mosque in Abu Dhabi that non-Muslims are permitted to enter.

Saadiyat Beach Golf Club, with its Gary Player-designed course, is one of the world’s most captivating golfing projects.

Providing a ‘place to breathe’ away from the hustle and bustle of city life, the club harnesses the stunning natural beauty of Saadiyat Island to create an unparalleled experience, made all the more rewarding with spectacular views of the Gulf’s glittering, crystal blue waters, fringed by pristine white sands.

Ray Manulat | General Manager of Saadiyat Beach Golf Club

“It is a privilege to be involved in this emerging industry, which integrates a rich cultural heritage and embraces a commitment to delivering excellence to the local population and its tourists. I truly believe that Saadiyat Beach Golf Club supports the vision of Abu Dhabi’s aspirations to become a top-tier leisure and cultural destination of distinction.”
