    Pocket Guide: Middle East

    From the tombs and temples of Turkey, to the mountain ranges of Oman and the futuristic skylines of the United Arab Emirates, the Middle East is one of the most diverse regions of the world. Birthplace to several world religions, the Middle East is particularly popular with pilgrims visiting its various religious sites. For secular visitors, the Middle East also offers unspoiled landscapes, opulent shopping and a wide range of historic things to do and see, ensuring your memories of this exceptional part of the world will last a lifetime. There’s plenty to see and do when you book a hotel in the Middle East.

    Areas & Neighbourhoods: Where to Stay in the Middle East

    United Arab Emirates — From the Grand Mosque in the capital Abu Dhabi, to the coastal metropolis of Dubai, a hotel in the United Arab Emirates offers you all the activities you could need for a lavish break. In Dubai you will discover beaches, theme parks, shopping, fine dining, an epic skyline and more, all alongside the balmy sapphire waters of the Persian Gulf.

    Israel — Probably the most westernised region of the Middle East, Israel’s varied climate, diverse geography and eclectic culture secure its place as one of the Middle East’s most popular destinations to book a hotel. It is home to the famous cities of Jerusalem and Bethlehem, which attract visitors to their many sacred shrines, mosques, synagogues and churches.

    Jordan — The desert kingdom of Jordan is perfect if you want to absorb the Middle East’s arid atmosphere and see regional heritage at its best. The country’s most famous attraction is the ancient city of Petra. Dating back to 300 BC, this arresting metropolis is carved directly into the sandstone. There so much to see with a hotel in Jordan.

    Oman — Overlooking the Persian Gulf, Oman offers a unique and tantalising blend of customs, cuisine and geographical diversity. Past imperial influence has helped to shape the country’s unique culture, with desert safaris, forest treks, markets, museums and sports just a few of the activities on offer in this peaceful Middle Eastern oasis.

    Things to See with a Hotel in the Middle East

    Spanning millennia, you’ll find an almost endless array of temples, tombs and other sites of religious importance in the Middle East. Don’t miss the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Bethlehem’s Church of the Nativity, which is easily accessible with a half-day tour from Tel Aviv. To see a house of worship like no other, the Nasir al-Mulk Mosque in Iran is famed for its bright mosaics and colourful stained glass. The morning sun illuminates the mosque in a sea of colour, throwing ribbons of light across its floors and walls.

    Things to Do When You Book a Middle East Hotel

    Discover the true glory of the Persian Gulf Coast with a Dunes discovery half-day tour. Setting off from Doha in Qatar, you’ll head into the harsh but handsome desert that is unique to this part of the world, with immense valleys, gorges, caves and mountains all at your fingertips. You might also enjoy a half-day private tour to the so-called ‘City of Mosaics’ – Madaba in Jordan. This city abounds with some of the best examples of Byzantine mosaic work in the Middle East, so be sure to bring your camera for some unforgettable snaps.

    "Great Hotel very central to allot of attractions."
    Very happy with hotel, friendly staff and spotless Hotel. Good facilities with a mall next door and access to a modern gym. Planet of choices with restaurants, perfect location for attractions near by. The only thing I could fault was the breakfast area and seating is small, you have to wait a while sometimes for a seat, I arrived earlier to avoid this which wasn't a problem for me. However I went out of season so can imagine in summer it would be extremely busy.

    The room was an amazing one, with a great marina view, but when it is about 10:00pm the party started at the opposite side, very loud music, I really couldn't sleep, I called the reception to complain but they did nothing.

    "Beautiful resort right on the beach"
    We really enjoyed staying at the Shangri-La resort near Muscat, Oman. The room was quiet, clean, and overlooked the Gulf of Oman. There were several restaurant options, and the meals were excellent. The pool and tennis facilities were very good. They even had a sports complex for kids as well as mini-golf. The staff was friendly and accommodating, letting us stay later without charge on the last day. They also allowed us to move to the middle hotel from the family hotel without fuss.
