A perfect hotel . Located on the periphery of abu dhabi, overlooking the sheikh zaid mosque.
For all the millions that must have been spent on this contemporary, luxurious hotel, what really makes it , is the staff. The service was superb. Friendly, efficient , flawless service. Little extras , such as chilled towels whilst you sun bathe, free fruit kebabs by the pool and lots of fluffy towels, perfect.
Excellent restaurants are boosted by wonderful eateries in the neighbouring shangri la and souk.
Rooms are huge, great view and lovely rain shower.
Only negative was the lack of a spa and having to pay for wi-fi, but the gym does the job with again great gym attendants.
Really cant knock the value either.
Winter, five star sun that won't break the bank; the bab al bahr is for you!More
