A glittering golden snake set against the elegant silhouette of Abu Dhabi’s skyline is the Sheikh Zayed Bridge, a fitting tribute to the emirate’s primary architect and the iconic former president Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. Embodying the same perfect construction are the myriad luxury hotels Abu Dhabi has to offer its leisure and corporate visitors, with the Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara deserving special mention. Set within the majestic Liwa Desert, this is one of the finest choices of Abu Dhabi hotels to host your desert getaway. Presenting a spectacular sight amidst this glimmering emirate is the Sheikh Zayed Bridge, which boasts an intricate construction that mesmerizes the eyes, as its smooth, flowing curves artfully evoke the ribboning sand dunes of the desert. At night, the bridge reveals a stunning visual, as it employs a vibrant lighting system of subtle shades that ripple along the spine of the bridge, which serves as a symbolic representation of the connection between the bridge and the energy emanated by the emirate itself. This magnificent example of modern architecture was the brainchild of famed architect Dame Zaha Hadid as an opulent landmark on Abu Dhabi’s landscape representing innovation and ingenuity.
