In a bid to showcase its cultural tourism proposition, His Highness Sheikh Sultan bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, chairman, Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi) officially opened the emirate’s first-of-its-kind Arabian Nights Village– Al Bayt Baytak.
The Arabian Nights Village is expected to be a leading international draw for visitors coming to the emirate. “This is a stunning development of private sector initiative and investment which we hope others will emulate. The Village raises the bar on traditional overnight desert accommodation and we believe it will resonate well and be fully appreciated by residents and visitors alike,” said Sheikh Sultan.
Operating day safaris and overnight excursions – which both include transfers to and from the Village from Abu Dhabi – the expansive resort also houses an oasis style pool, an indoor-outdoor traditional ‘Al Maqam’ restaurant and a souk selling local handmade crafts.
The Arabian Nights Village boasts 30 double rooms, five one bedroom suites and a three-bedroom suite, set across four themes: Bayt Al Shaaer (The Woven House), Bayt Al Bahar (House of the Sea), Bayt Al Bar (Desert Home) and Al Manhal Fort Tower.
The highlight of the Arabian Night Village’s suite offering is the Al Manhal Fort Tower, with three presidential bedrooms. The village is also offering corporate packages and event hosting upon request.
