2 Hotels for Abu Dhabi holidays with Dragon Boat Festival
Bringing much fun to the competitions of the boating season, this year the Trade Hotel in Abu Dhabi will be joining the Shangri-La Qaryat Al Beri to host the Dragon Boat Festical, which is scheduled to take place between 8th - 9th October.
Two outstanding resorts providing luxury Abu Dhabi holidays are to join forces and collaborate together as the honoured hosts to one of the emirate's most popular events. The prestigious Shangri-La Hotel, Abu Dhabi will be joined by staff from the Traders Hotels in Abu Dhabi to host the third annual Abu Dhabi Dragon Boat Festival, taking place this October.
As part of Adrenaline Sports Live, the event will take place on 8th and 9th October 2010 and will be hosted by RANI.
Since its inception in 2008, Shangri-La Hotel has been the main sponsor of this popular marine festival, hosting corporate teams for training days at the hotel’s beach every year and even entering its own teams into the competition. This year will see a collaboration of staff from both Shangri-La Hotel and Traders Hotel in Abu Dhabi.
For the delight of onlookers enjoying their Abu Dhabi holidays at the hotel, the event, which will take place on the 1km stretch of beachfront overlooking the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, will end with an award ceremony and barbeque party on Traders Hotel Beach.
Dragon Boating is a thrilling water sport full of adrenaline, sportsmanship, strategy and technique. It is also a sport that is about positive team spirit, being healthy, making friends and having fun. Companies are encouraged to enter their corporate teams for this year’s festival early, due to the enormous popularity of this growing sport.
“The Abu Dhabi Dragon Boat Festival (part of Adrenaline Sports Live presented by RANI) is a great success every year and our involvement again for 2010 is important as an Asian hospitality company. We see dragon boating as the perfect sporting activity to sponsor and we are delighted to be holding the third festival at our Hotel again this year.” - general manager, Shangri-La Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi, Adrian Rudin proudly revealed.
“We will once again be entering the competition ourselves with our dynamic Shangri-La and Traders Dragons team. We have some talented colleagues on the team and we are hopeful that we will do well again this year,” Rudin added.
