We're in Abu Dhabi from New Years Eve through to 3rd January - staying at the Royal Meridien... on our way back from spending Christmas at Cape Panwa in Phuket.
Both mid 30's, no kids. Can anyone recommend any good New Years Eve celebration events - anything from lively parties to decent atmoshpere restaurants? Are there fireworks? Any particular area where people congregate at midnight?
I'm struggling to find any reference to New Year events - either on Time Out Abu Dhabi website or just by googling!
Final query. We're spending one night at the Hilton International, just as a stopover on the way out to Thailand. I booked the Royal Meridien on the way back, only because I've stayed in the Royal Meridien in Dubai and thought it was excellent. Anyone got any comparisons between the Abu Dhabi Royal Meridien and the Hilton.... as it's not too late to swop!
