Rosewood Abu Dhabi
Ranked #2 of 129 Hotels in Abu Dhabi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The Rosewood is a brand new hotel with some of the outdoor facilities not quite finished. It is beautifully decorated with large well equipped rooms and well-appointed open areas and restaurants. The eye for detail was fantastic, resulting in a large but still cosy hotel. It is not always easy to have the staff team performing well from day one, but it was not possible to fault them. Friendly, professional, always willing to help and foreseeing your needs. And not acting like a well drilled machine, but with personality and genuine willingness to help.
The breakfast was fantastic with a wide variety of high quality and also luxurious dishes. All displayed as pieces of art. The Indian restaurant served amazing dishes, all cooked to perfection.
As a business hotel it is already amazing – when everything is finished it is time to take the family as well.

Thank you for very positive review on Rosewood Abu Dhabi! We have shared your comments with our associates which are without a doubt one of our best assets! Rosewood Abu Dhabi is completely finished, however there are works on the island to finish off the current mixed used development.

We hope to see you again soon!

This was my first stay in Rosewood but certainly not my last! Everything was really excellent!
The room was really comfortable. Breakfast selection was super! The Spa facilities were very comfortable. Massage was really relaxing.
The swimmingpool was very nice. The staff was really helpfull.
So I can recommand everyone this very impressive hotel!

Room Tip: A room with view on the pool is the best.

Really amazing hotel. The best food, room and service I have every experienced. From the manager to my chamber maid everyone was attentive and interested. Really fantastic. If you want to impress someone in UAE, look no further.

I attended the launch of ConnecME, an online learning partnership for the Middle East. The hotel delivered the event seemlessly and everyone, including the Sheik left contented.

This hotel has some of the best service I have come across. The interiors are beautiful - lots of Rosewood naturally!

Breakfast selection is excellent. I would also highly recommend the Lebanese restaurant Sambusek at the hotel, a favourite with visiting dignitaries.

The hotel has good spa facilities and the pool staff even provide factor 30 sunscreen.

The hotel is in the newly developing financial district, it's around 30min drive from the airport - AUD 60-80 in a cab.

The hotel itself is attached to a very high-end shopping mall - the designer version of the Abu Dhabi shopping mall. There are enough restaurants around near the hotel for variety if you don't fancy heading further afield.

Cabs are easy to organise from the hotel- we never had to wait to hail a cab. If it's not too hot, there is also the number 005 bus that takes you to Abu Dhabi mall or the Marina for AUD 2.

Below is my perception of my stay:
- the welcome was the best and most friendly I have received. I felt that everyone took a part in the welcome in an equal friendly manner. Greeted at the car by a gentleman with a big smile called John who walked me through all the way to the reception desk and then by a very friendly lady who answered all my requests with "Absolutely", then was offered a nice refreshing cocktail with ginger and I was escorted with a super friendly butler to my "Quiet" room
- Every staff I came across at this hotel was friendly, outgoing, natural, happy, proud and had a high moral. That was a great ambiance.
- The room was classy and chic with the best quality beddings, toiletries, great TV etc.... and actually the windows were REAL soundproof. Finally I could sleep, sleep and sleep again
- food was delicious at the Spanish restaurant (previous visit) with a lot of creativity and attentive service
- the mall attached also gives an option to good choice of casual restaurants and many fashion brands.
- The only negative issue was the Wifi. I hope one of the hotels can explain to me why someone can come from the street and get free wifi in the lobby and as a hotel guest I can't get free wifi in my room. Also the free wifi in the lobby is so slow and you need to make it much faster. I hope visitors from abroad don't get the wrong perception of Abu Dhabi being backwards due to this wifi speed.
- I will definitely give a full mark and I will definitely stay at the rosewood again even though my meetings are in the other side of the corniche with many other hotels close by.
- my best regards to John and to everyone who welcomed me at this hotel
