Miral Destinations, a subsidiary of Miral and the trusted one-stop trade
and promotional partner for Saadiyat Island and Yas Island Abu Dhabi, will participate in the 2022 edition of World Travel Market (WTM) to highlight its recent successes and upcoming plans.
Liam Findlay, CEO of Miral Destinations said: “We are excited to take part in this year’s WTM and look
forward to showcasing different elements of Saadiyat Island and Yas Island to industry leaders across the global tourism and travel sector, highlighting key successes and new offerings across both destinations.” Following the Miral appointment by the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) earlier in the year, Miral Destinations will also be showcasing the luxurious Saadiyat Island at the global event under the motif, ‘One Island, Many Journeys’. Appealing to discerning travellers looking for a luxury getaway, cultural immersion and unique recreation, Saadiyat Island is the UAE capital’s natural island destination.
Visitors to the Island can stay and relax at one of Abu Dhabi’s most glamorous resorts, offering stretches of idyllic private beaches, a variety of dining options and a vast range of leisure and wellness activities. In addition, visitors to Saadiyat Island can observe a diverse collection of wildlife in their natural habitats, including Hawksbill turtles, bottlenose dolphins, and Arabian gazelles. The island is also home to Saadiyat Beach Golf Club, the region’s first ocean course surrounded by exquisite natural beauty. The eco-conscious course is designed for both amateur and professional golfers alike. Golfing visitors can also hone their skills at its academy or attend one of its annual golfing events.
Saadiyat Island is home to Manarat Al Saadiyat and the world’s most famous museums including Louvre Abu Dhabi, which will celebrate its fifth anniversary this November with an exciting line up of cultural events and three new major exhibitions including “Impressionism: Pathways to Modernity”, “Louvre Abu Dhabi Art Here 2022” exhibition, and “Bollywood Superstars” in partnership with Musée du quai Branly – Jacques Chirac and France Museums. In addition to that, the destination will soon feature additional world-class art and culture institutions including the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi, Natural History Museum Abu Dhabi and Zayed National Museum. In addition, Abu Dhabi’s premier leisure and entertainment hub, Yas Island, celebrated many successes earlier this year including a record-breaking summer through its popular Kid’s Go Free summer offer and exciting Stay and Play packages, which allows guests to enjoy a stay at one of the destination’s leading hotels and also gain access to three record-breaking theme parks. The Island saw 90% hotel occupancy over the summer and a collective 90% recovery in international visitation to the award-winning attractions
