There is also an additional charge of AED250 for each child from six to 12 years’ of age and for each maid.
The celebrations for overnight guests begin with a 3pm pick-up to the picturesque resort nestled in the Al Khatem desert, half way between Al Ain and Abu Dhabi. After stopping at a camel farm on the way, overnight guests will arrive at the village, enjoy a welcome drink and have a few hours to relax and take in the surroundings.
The New Year’s Eve revelries begin at 8pm when the lavish dinner buffet with live kitchen and international cuisine is served. All beverages are included in package prices. With the final sunset of 2015 out of the way, a jam-packed entertainment programme includes European dance shows, performances by an oud player and belly dancer, a live DJ party and the turn-of-the-year countdown to the fireworks and lighting show over the desert.
Overnight guests can then begin 2016 in style with a breakfast of Arabian and international dishes in the Al Maqam ‘Gathering Place’ restaurant, before heading off for a packed day of dune bashing, sand surfing, camel riding and henna painting. Those preferring to take it easy after the night before, can laze in the sun or dip in the Oasis pool before their 12 noon check-out.
