Abu Dhabi is the wealthiest of seven oil-rich states, it is the Jewel in the United Arab Emirates, cultural crown- a multi-island, mega flush destination for 5-star play and stay where event the police drive Rolls Royce Phantoms.
Majlis is Arabic for a top-level meeting place and in Abu Dhabi; the traditional majlis – a tented meeting place where hospitality abounded before negotiations began – it has been the setting for business meetings from the heyday of the silk route. The tradition, which characterised the early signing of petroleum concessions, lives on today and our majlis is now among the most advanced and competitive around. Abu Dhabi has taken the best of the past and refreshed it with the finest for the present and future.
Overview of Abu Dhabi….
What was 50 years ago no more than a fishing village, Abu Dhabi now straddles some 200 islands in the Arabian Gulf. Most of the action is in the west, around pristine beachy corniche. The finance district sits astride Al Reem and Al Maryah Island and NW is Arty Smart Saadiyat (with the imminent Louvre & Guggenheim). East is the water Parks, Mega Malls and Motor madness of Yas Island.
