Today in Abu Dhabi the most popular location is a dhow boat. On a daily basis, I see families organizing their parties especially their birthdays, wedding and anniversaries in a dhow. Some prefer the day dhow cruise while the others go with the most famous Dhow Dinner Cruise. The floating atmosphere and the views of the Marina and the Corniche have attracted many to select Dhow cruise as a party venue their events.

Event planners love to handle dhow parties as it is exclusively booked for the invitees and a lot of surprises are planned. Nowadays dhow cruise is not only recognized for 5-star food which is served, but also for the other activities like music, themed parties, magic shows, dance and other entertainment to take your party to the next level and make your guests feel overwhelmed.

The Yacht is a famous term in Dubai, but Abu Dhabi owns yacht parties. Since Abu Dhabi doesn’t promote much as they already have full bookings and business for yachts, thus may be the common man thinks that Dubai is the King of yachts. Abu Dhabi dominates the yacht party industry which includes private parties, nightlife parties, VIP parties, beach, and Island parties and special parties.

Yacht means luxury party in simple terms. But today good tour operators are promoting this yacht party venue as tours to many tourists and even making sure the residents can enjoy this as a party venue. Yachts are basically planned for a family get together, a bunch of friends or youth, couples and others to host any party of their kind no matter a birthday, a casual dance party, a get-together or an anniversary. Yacht party venue is famous for BBQ food, champagne & wine, high tea, romance, sunset views, flower decors, DJ, and dance. Yacht venue results in a happening party in Abu Dhabi for a group and a romantic swirl party for couples.

Island venue which is once famous only for VIPs and luxury guests are today reaching even normal people via great tour operators who have designed this venue of an Island in the form of Island Getaways, Island relaxing tours and Island Romantic Getaways. Yachts coming to play to transport you and your guests when an Island is selected as a party venue.

Island venue is very much of relaxing and very much recommended for privacy and to be away from the rush city life. Romantic couples prefer Island as a party venue which can be able to execute their surprises and many group parties are held in Islands of Abu Dhabi with all the facilities needed for an ultimate entertainment. In an Island party, you are free to plan a party of your dream as there will be no external factors influencing you and your crowd. Thus hunt for a good event planner who can make your Island party with full of delight. Island Weddings are getting famous in Abu Dhabi.

Last but not least is the Desert of Abu Dhabi. This is my famous location as I always prefer romance in a relaxing atmosphere. I recommend a desert as a party venue to celebrate your special day of your partners like a birthday or even both of your special day like your anniversary. The small group of families host birthdays and small get together parties nowadays in Abu Dhabi desert. Especially the desert is beautiful at night when the stars witness you from above.

Desert party venues are well planned and usually, while romance feeling is needed, brings in champagne and wine and for my party, I had candles surrounded around us. This desert party is usually hosted in a private setup in the middle of the dunes with the best food for you to enjoy. Please try hosting a party at least once in the desert of Abu Dhabi and you will really feel the difference of a party which needs some space in your heart. Activities like camel rides, dune bashing, and quad biking add more flavor to the venue. Trust me, my friend has planned his wedding next year to be hosted in the desert of Abu Dhabi at night.
