This hotel is spacious and beautiful with high quality materials and workmanship. The building curves around a large landscaped garden and pool area and is styled like grand buildings in Venice.
My room has a large King bed with plenty of room for a sitting area and work desk. The bathroom is beautiful with a large tub and separate shower and separate toilet stall. Double sinks are surrounded by light tan marble tile and dark woods. The tub features frosted glass doors that fold open to the rest of the room and allow views out the spacious sliding doors to the balcony overlooking the garden and pool. The balcony is large and a pleasant spot to enjoy the views.
There is a large closet with an ironing board and shoe cupboard. The dresser in the room has plenty of storage as well as a minibar and a safe. The outlets in the room contain multiple holes and slots to accommodate electric plugs from all over the world (voltage on most outlets is 220, unless marked 110 like the one in the bathroom.
The pool area is very large. The giant pool is warm and gently slopes from a few inches deep to five feet at the far end. There are two large canvas "sail" covers at the shallow end to proved shade from the sun. There is also a covered splash play area for the kids off to the side. There are plenty of lounge chairs and cabanas spread around the pool and garden area. This sections green and lush with formal plantings.
The service is top notch. Everyone is very attentive and eager to help.
The hotel is very near the Grand Mosque and has unobstructed views of that spectacular building. It is located in well inland from the coastline where many of the other hotels and sights are in Abu Dhabi. However it is located on the grand canal near the Mosque and only about 20 minutes from the airport.
This resort is a luxurious place to stay while in the area.
