Armani, Versace, the Burj--whenever we talk about the UAE we always seems to talk about the seven star luxury properties in Dubai.  

What if you want to go to the UAE and not max out your credit cards?  In that case you might want to check out Hotel Grand Jebel Hafeet in Al Ain.  

Sure you will have to travel 160km from Abu Dhabi, however, once in Al Ain, at the foot of Hafeet Mountain, you will find a futuristic looking hotel with pools, waterslides, golf, and sweeping desert vistas.

Furthermore, you can shuffle over to the nearby camel bazaar day or night (open 24 hours) and buy yourself a spittin' horse to ride into Dubai, old school.

Wonder if they have camel valets at the Burj--we doubt any of the high class properties in Dubai would let you show up on camel, but it would be kinda cool if you did it anyway.  

A five-storey, five star hotel for right around $60 a night--sounds like the Grand Jebel Hafeet is worth a look.
