Celebrate UAE National Day with Dubai holidays at Le Meridien Al Aqah

On December 2nd, 2009, guests staying on at Le Méridien Al Aqah Beach Resort during their Dubai holidays are in for a treat as the resort transforms its ground into a funfair to celebrate its 7th anniversary and the 38th UAE National Day (the day were the United Arab Emirates joined to form the Middle Eastern federation it is today).

Patrick Antaki, the resort’s General Manager expressed his delight over the celebrations and the joy they bring to many families on Dubai holidays “Le Méridien Al Aqah will celebrate two momentous occasions on December 2nd - another successful year of providing our award-winning hospitality and service, as well as the anniversary of our wonderful country,”

“The focus will be on family entertainment, as during difficult times it is more important than ever to focus on traditional values such as family, community and charity.”

Al Aqah Fun Day is now an annual event that has become a focal point for visitors from the East Coast and throughout the region who all come on Dubai holidays here to take part in the full day’s entertainment priced at AED 40 per adult, AED 20 for children aged six to 12, and with free admission for children below 5 years of age. This entry fee automatically entitles guests to enter the raffle draw, with prizes including dinner vouchers, adventure activities and also Dubai holidays (so those already on Dubai holidays might earn their ticket to come back!)

To support Le Méridien Al Aqah’s year-round Corporate Social Responsible activities, all the proceeds of Fun Day will be donated to Dibba Orphanage, to help create a better quality of life for the young people there; and also to the Angel Appeal for the Mission to Seafarers, a boat which provides support to seafarers on the UAE’s Coast lines.

Al Aqah’s Fun Day will bring a ‘village fete’ type atmosphere to the East Coast with a variety of indoor and outdoor events suitable for the whole family to join in. For the delight of those on Dubai holidays here on this day there will be melodies of local band and a giant bouncy castle for children. The resort’s popular eateries will be serving up an extensive selection of cuisine throughout the day at food and beverage counters, which will be set up all around the resort.

The day’s activities have something for every age group including rodeo bull, fun rides, dancing, face painting, piñata, tug-of-war and sack-racing. For the more adventurous, (and quite probably the adults with enough stomach) there will be watermelon eating and cake-baking competitions.

For an extra Dh 100, visitors on Dubai holidays at this resort can have access to the resort’s pristine beach and outdoor pools. Group packages are also available, just call us at The Holiday Place to find out more and book your family or group Dubai holidays during these fun celebration days at Le Meridien Al Aqah.
