“Outstanding from start to finish!”
Reviewed 20 June 2011

We have recently returned from a weekend in this hotel to celebrate our 1st anniversary and i have to say it did not disappoint! We got a great rate using the Entertainer Travel Voucher and were totally wow’d by the room and indeed the hotel facilities and decoration. View over the creek and mosque is definitely worth the extra cash, but to be honest the best view is the hotel itself, stunning at night! We ate in Frankies the 1st night and the staff were all super friendly with great service and the second night we experienced exactly the same in Cedar Lounge (used an Entertainer voucher here too). Even the valet guys and door men were up for a chat and a laugh! Overall 10 out of 10! Would absolutely recommend to all!

Room Tip: Excellent rate with the Entertainer Travel.

Just returned from our stay at Fairmont Bab Al Bahr, and once again it proves its Number One status on Trip Advisor is well deserved.
We visited with some friends, and had rooms next to each other on the Gold Floor. Well worth the extra money, for the afternoon tea, canapes and drinks in the evening.
Fanastic rooms with amazing views of the mosque and the softest pillows ever.
As usual all the satff were very friendly and always makes it feel like we are returning home.
Well done to Arnold Fransico, September Garcia and all the Gold Floor team who looked after us so well, and made our anniversary stay so special.
Sure we will be going back again soon.

Fabulous hotel as all fairmont hotels, huge ultra modern rooms with marble flooring ,446' LCD Tv and complete workstation with full array of office supplies.
I have stayed in club room and it worth it. since the club lounge is huge and they serve food and drinks almost all day long.
the hotel is a bit out of town in new area on the beach, so you need a car to get to town.and
it has it's own beach and very large swimming pool. the room has separate shower, toilet and bath tub.
nice place to stay for everybody except for those who wish to stay in the City center
.

Room Tip: try shopping center next to Traders Hotel

Checked in for a 6 night stay at this hotel and it was excellent, a quick check in and to our surprise our hotel room was excellent, as we only paid for a deluxe room, comfy beds, many channels on the TV and nice shower.

The next part was the service, great! Always happy to help out and would accept no tip at all. The best person i would say was Tony: one of the concierges at the hotel, knew every place like the back of his hand. Thanks Tony.

The pool was also a fun thing to do, with a bar where you sat down on a marble seat in the pool! You made an order and drank while still in the luxury of the pool, who doesn't want to do that?

The one small problem was one of the days we went back up to our room to find cleaners were in there, we didn't mind at first, but when we came back an hour later he or she was still in there, but other than that no problems, a clean sheet :).

Overall the second or the best holiday ever thanks to the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr. I would and do recommend this hotel to anyone planning to travel to Abu Dhabi with it's great.... Everything!

We have just returned from 11 nights at this wonderful hotel.

It's an extremely striking,modern hotel that wouldn't look out of place on Miami Beach or New York.

We stayed on the Gold floor and it is certainly worth the extra expense for the private lounge,dining area,staff and amenities.

The staff deserve a special mention as they look after your every requirement efficiently and without fuss. They all remember your name and make you feel at home. Thanks especially to Jenny, Umme, Nalin and Jonas on the Gold Floor and Cinderella (great name) and Hans by the Pool.

The Restaurants were overwhelming with their choice and variety and the hotel itself is spotless.

Ask for a Mosque view room as the view is stunning.

We travel extensively and have stayed in some very noteworthy hotels but this one certainly deserves the comments on this site.

Me and my husband recently visited the UAE, we stayed in the Fairmount hotel and found it amazing. We were very surprised with the level of service we received from the hotel staff. We were making our way to the hotel by taxi and accidently forgot our camera on the back seat, we told the staff at the front desk and they did all that was in their power to try to retrieve it! We didn't get it back, as another passenger must have taken it, but the hotel staff did so much, we were very impressed.
We would sit near the pool and get constant refreshments and bottles of cold water and everywhere we went we got big smiles and good mornings from every member of staff we passed... We felt like royalty!! As part of our package breakfast was included, so every morning we would leisurely wake up and have breakfast at around 10:30 am, and the breakfast staff would pull out chairs for the both of us and lay down napkins on our lap! It was impeccable service!

For someone visiting Abu Dhabi I would defo recommend the Fairmount hotel, get a sea view room, ours was a sea view and we would wake up to the beautiful view of the sheikh zayed mosque and clear blue waters!!

The only negative was that their spa facility was being renovated so wasn't open when we were there, and also it took 3 engineers to fix our air conditioning which was always very cold when we came back from a long day of adventure. Other then that it was a fantastic holiday!! Defo go back soon

Room Tip: Sea view room

We stayed in the Fairmont for 7 nights in June. This Fairmont offers the best service we've ever had in Arabia! Thanks to Ossama at the Reception, thanks to Lucy at the Gold Club! With your kindness and your warm approach, you made our staying outstanding!
Beside the fact that the Hotel is wonderful, great Restaurant, super pool and beach, the employees at this Fairmont are simply fantastic.

Thank you!
