his hotel is simply amazing! Staff is super polite and helpful. We had a suite that faced the Grand Mosque and the beach. The view was magnificent. Wow! The suite itself was beautiful, it had lovely furnishings in traditional Arabian style.
I loved the fact that they have two gyms, a mixed one and one only for women. I went to the women gym and I was all by myself the entire time. Very nice. They have two swimming pools. The beach area was very clean and the boys there brought fresh ice cold towels and cold bottled water (the temperature was 42 degrees Celsius). They also gave you plenty of beach towels. The service at the pool was also good. The pool bar and restaurant serves great food (grills and salads). Breakfast was very good, too, great coffee, great humus, plenty of juices and fresh fruits. We had dinner at the Hoi An (Vietnamese restaurant). Great service and food! The souk next to the hotel is also worth visiting. It has great shops and some great restaurants (we had dinner at the steakhouse and also at the Japaneses restaurant, they both were great!)
The Pearls and Caviar bar is very nice, beautiful settings. It is outdoor and they said they would close during summertime, because it is too hot. There's also a restaurant here, didn't dine here but it looked very nice.
Also had a hot stone massage at the spa. I simply loved it. It really helped me relax and sleep better at night. And the therapist was great!
I'd love to return to Shangri-la Abu Dhabi one day!
