Our stay at Rosewood Abu Dhabi was just fabulous! I especially enjoyed the warm greetings and friendly smiles we received throughout the entire hotel. The rooms were impeccable and the fruits and personalized messages were a very special touch!

We dined at Catalan and treated ourselves to Antonio’s tasting menu which was simply divine! I understand why people keep returning, night after night. The personalized wine recommendations were very much appreciated too.

The only downside is that our stay was too short! Nonetheless, we’re already planning our return…

Thank you again for a wonderful stay. It was wonderful to finally experience the unique Rosewood brand and see this level of quality service here in Abu Dhabi!!!

Wishing you all the very best success in the years ahead, and looking forward to seeing more Rosewood Hotels in the region!!!

Room Tip: All rooms have floor to ceiling glass and stunning views of Abu Dhabi!

Although the property is yet to be completely finished, the attentiveness and hospitality of staff is already there which can only be complimented by a strong HR and Training department to ensure the experience is memorable from the moment you arrive.
I am definitely returning and cant wait for the spa to open

It was a late night check-in and realized that have forgot to bring formal shoes for early morning meeting. All shops were closed and was in a distress situation. Hotel staff managed to arrange priovide a brand new pair of balck shoes and made it a memorable trip.

Overall, staff was very friendly and you can smell that everything is new. Easy and convenient location downtown Abu Dhabi. Surely will stay next time as well.

I stayed at the Rosewood for business overnight. I think it is an excellent option for the business traveler visiting Abu Dhabi and for the price it is excellent value. The design of the hotel is pleasing with the room being of a very generous size - the free standing bath is a very nice touch! I plan to return very soon.

The hotel executive rooms are a symbol of elegance, sophistication and high tech technology. The staff are well trained and they do all their effort to satisfy the guests. But because it's relatively new hotel there were some issues, for example the swimming pool was really empty even there was no one from the staff to provide the towels. The spa was still not opened yet but I had been offered to use the spa facilities like the jaccuzi and the steam room but to my surprise the jaccuzi water was really really cold which was very disappointing.
The pillows were really hard and I woke up the next day with neck pain.
We did enjoy our dinner in Sambusuk restaurant but the breakfast at Aqua was very average. My 3 children( 6,6 and 9 years) enjoyed their time in the kids club.The gym is very big and well equipped. At last I think this hotel will be soon one of the best hotels in Abu Dhabi..
