My wife and I stayed two nights at the Westin Abu Dhabi Golf Resort in late October, staying in a Deluxe Room and paying 900 AED (180 Euros / $245) in total, using a buy-one-night, get-one-night-free Entertainer Travel Voucher.
There are numerous positives about the resort. The rooms are large (45 sq. m. / 490 sq. ft), as are the bathrooms. The Westin “Heavenly Bed” is amazingly comfortable. The modern décor of the room, lobby, lounges, and restaurants is tasteful and attractive. The staff – from the valets to the porters to the check-in staff to the concierge to the waiters and waitresses were all courteous and professional. Breakfast at the Fairways restaurant and lunch at The Retreat were both of good quality. The fitness center is full of new, modern equipment. Finally, the hotel is located directly adjacent to the Abu Dhabi Golf Club (home to a European Tour event each January).
There are a few negatives for the hotel. In spite of the fact that the hotel is designated as entirely non-smoking, individuals were still permitted to smoke in the café just off the main lobby as well as in The Retreat restaurant. Communication between the Westin concierge and the golf course was not perfect, necessitating multiple phone calls from the golf course to convince them that I had indeed already paid for my golf with the Westin.
If you stay at the hotel, be aware that it is primarily a golf resort (most rooms look out on the course and practice area), and that it is about a 20-minute drive from most of the attractions in Abu Dhabi. If you’re looking for golf, for a quiet retreat outside the city, or for a classy hotel near the airport, this is a wonderful place to stay. If you want to be near the action, stay in the city or near the attractions on Yas Island. All in all, we loved our time at the Westin and would recommend it.
