Middle East

Ultra-luxury in an ancient world

Middle East tailor-made holidays

Overview

Appealing to adventurous and discerning travellers alike, the Middle East is one of the world's most rewarding regions to explore. Home to significant civilisations and great religions, it resonates with history and culture.

Throughout the region, ultra-modern cities contrast some of the world's most ancient wonders – sites of enormous importance including Persepolis in Iran and Petra in Jordan. Elsewhere, the minarets and mosaics of centres such as Esfahan in Iran mark the passage of centuries, the souks continue to bustle and Beirut in Lebanon and Dubai showcase a modern sophistication that is slowly sweeping the region.

Then, vast swathes of empty desert and shifting dunes in Oman or the UAE border the underwater world of the Red Sea, ensuring that there are plenty of activity and adventure holiday options available, as well as relaxing beach escapes coupled with some seriously luxurious accommodation options.
