Glamour in the sand. The white sand beaches merge into colossal sand dunes, the perfect environment for camel riding, dune buggying or dinner under the stars in a private camp.

Why travel to UAE

A hive of boundless energy, glamorous hotels and immaculately groomed beaches makes Dubai a great stopover en route to points further east. That said, your enjoyment will depend largely on choosing the hotel that best matches your style, knowing where to shop and getting into the best restaurants – and for that, you need insider knowledge of a high-end travel company. Here at cazenove+loyd we possess this knowledge and can help you plan the best luxury holidays to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
For those in search of a cultural experience, we can take you away from the shopping malls and beaches into the depths of the country to discover local mud house villages.

It’s worth remembering that, despite grabbing all the headlines, Dubai is just one of the seven Emirates that make up the UAE and beyond the metropolitan beaches there are silent deserts, stark mountains, green oases and crystalline seas with superb diving. Let us help you plan your next luxury holidays to the UAE with a tailor-made itinerary.

What our clients say

Many thanks for the wonderful holiday you organised for us. The visit to Siwa should be on everybody’s itinerary. It is fantastic and rather mystical to be in the desert. Staying in that ecological place without electricity but completely comfortable was incredible. The food was the best we ate in the country. It was well worth the seven-hour drive.

What our clients say

We had the most amazing honeymoon. We are so grateful to you for your help in organising it.
