“one of a kind in Abu Dhabi”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

We stayed in this hotel a few years ago, but it's still worth to write a nice review. This was for sure the best hotel i have ever been. I had beautiful room with a large bath and an amazing terace with a breath taking view to the Musk. Breakfast choice was superb but for sure the best was the chocolate fontain with fresh fruits. The staff was very nice and helpful; they also organized for us daily trips to the musk, shopping malls and safari. We also like the venice gondols that take us to the hotel bazar. This is for sure one of the best luxury hotels in the area. I hope to come back one day in this beautiful place!

We had a great stay relaxing here as a stop off on the way to the World Cup. Close to the airport and great facilities. However, on the way back it was Ramadan and we did not realise most restaurants/bars would be closed or have limited hours/services. No food or drink can be consumed in public which includes around the pool. This can cause problems in 40 degree heat. Overall, a great hotel but for non Muslims be careful when you book.

Had been for a dinner buffet....being a vegetarian, selections were not many but tasty........loved their veg biryani....unfortunately no Indian bread selection...also there should have been a margharita pizza atleast, but only non-veg pizza...the best part was the selection of fruits and desserts - very good! Skip this place for dinner if u are looking only for veg. meal in dinner buffet..

Soon as I arrived I could feel the personalised 5 star service nothing was too much trouble, front house staff named Honey was really helpful made our stay easy.

I enjoyed the amazing sunsets from my balcony. The rooms are spacious clean although could do with bit of an update now.

Breakfast by the pool overlooking the Canal was amazing great spread on offer.

Loved the small canal with it's boats running from here to the souk, the souk offers small selection of restaurants and shops I tried Azzuro which serves Italian, well priced.

I highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for great service in a traditional styled hotel with souk nearby.

Only an hours drive from Dubai and we arrived for a great weekend break. Booked an executive suite which was amazing! Great space for our 1 year old daughter. The weekend was a double celebration - our daughters 1st birthday and our 5th anniversary. The hotel provided us with a cake for each occasion. I requested a room away from Pearls & Caviar as I'd been told the venue plays loud music after midnight. However, we were right next to this place but it was closed and I was advised of this on the way to our room. The housekeeper, Grace, made up our room beautifully to celebrate our anniversary by decorating the bed with roses and petals and swans made out of towels. A lovely touch. The Horizon Lounge was superb, lots of benefits - separate check-in desk, great hot and cold breakfast, afternoon tea and complimentary drinks and canapés from 6-8pm. The service was exceptional in the lounge, nothing was too much for them. Children are welcome in the lounge which is good. The pool area was lovely and the service was fantastic, complimentary chilled bottled water was very welcome in the heat. We used the babysitting service the second night so my wife and I could eat at Shang Palace. Here the service was very good and the food was average. I was allowed a late check-out to 3pm. Check-out was efficient. We sat in the lounge while the car and luggage were collected. The waitress offered us some snacks from the afternoon tea selection to take with us which was a nice touch. I really can't fault this place. It is the best hotel we have ever stayed in in the UAE. One thin is for sure, we will be returning before the end of the year!

Room Tip: Book a Horizon Club room so you can use the lounge. Get a room away from Pearls & Caviar.
