Ritz Carlton Abu Dhabi Grand Canal
Guests can sip on a camel's milk shake at The Ritz Carlton Abu Dhabi Grand Canal. The luxury resort has an in-house Camel Milk Mixologist who offers up various flavored milk shakes — strawberry, mint and others — to guests.

The delicious service was launched last year to coincide with the with the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan. Camel's milk is high in protein, so it's a ideal beverage to sip on during Souhour, the meal taken before sunrise for Muslims fasting during Ramadan.

The mixologist will even make recommendations for drink and food pairings, to satisfy guests' unique tastes.

Conde Nast Traveler, purveyor of fine hotel reviews and travel advice, has just released its 2012 edition of the Hot List, a list of hotels that are setting the hotel world aflame with fresh designs and new concepts, or maybe just a solid new look at classic luxury. 41 reporters embedded themselves anonymously in hotels across the globe to review their targets. What results is a list of 121 hotels around the world that are so on fire they should be put on your watch list, just in case they end up burning down.

When the entire administration of my alma mater left for Abu Dhabi, it engendered a bunch of jokes, including the seminal Miley Cyrus parody Party in the UAE (warning: you probably don't want to click on this link). Now I can say with a certain amount of authority that if anyone were having a hoedown in the sandiest of cities, they would be remiss if they didn't consider the Jumeirah at Etihad Towers Hotel for its venue. Quest, their signature Asian fusion restaurant is just about the hottest thing in town, and you'll know just from the first sip of your welcome drink that you've happened upon something special.  The hotel tower is paired with four others that make a brilliant complex that accents the city skyline quite impressively, and your views from any of the higher floors are impressive to say the least, whether they look upon the city or the Persian Gulf, which stretches out from the beach that flanks the hotel. The in-house Talise spa also features 13 treatment rooms and the latest in therapy. The Jumeirah at Etihad Towers Hotel showcases the feats of modern architectural achievement, and its interior stands up to the lofty challenge of matching its first impression.

Not only that, but Viceroy is setting its course for the Indian Ocean, with the hotly anticipated opening of the Viceroy Maldives in December 2011. Located on the idyllic crescent-shaped island of Vagaru in the Shaviyani Atoll, just one hour north of the capital Male, the Viceroy Maldives will feature 61 villas with interiors designed by Yabu Pushelberg, an over-water spa, a complete range of watersport activities and five restaurants. All surrounded by the turquoise sea and sky...
