Discover the opulence of Abu Dhabi with a stay in one of its newest resorts. Set in the expansive Al Seef Village, Al Seef Resort & Spa by Andalus offers home-away-from-home suites across its series of low-rise villas, which are set along the palm-peppers pavements. Each comes complete with an open-plan kitchen, a living room area and one, two or three bedrooms.
Set on Abu Dhabi’s Eastern Ring, you’re within easy reach of some of the city’s most iconic landmarks, including Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. Within the resort itself you’ll find a whole street dedicated to dining, as well as leading fashion brands in the village’s marvelous mall. What’s more, there are four swimming pools to saunter between, as well as Abu Dhabi’s largest Jacuzzi.
You’ll also have Happiness Island at your fingertips – a private island resort with two swimming pools, one of which boasts gorgeous Arabian Gulf views. There’s also an all-day-dining restaurant here, plus beanbags and sofas set around the pool, making it easy to while away a day in the warm sunshine.
One Bedroom suites span a generous 807 square feet and come with an additional terrace area of 818 square feet. Two Bedroom suites are larger still, with two bathrooms to boot, while Three Bedroom suites measure a spacious 1,755 square feet and boasts large windows, allowing the space to be flooded with natural light. All the suites come complete with high-speed Internet access, as well as well-equipped open-plan kitchens.
Mamsha Al Seef is the village’s dedicated food street, with over 20 eateries to choose from, and more soon to be opened. Dining destinations include San Francisco Coffee Co. and Gina’s Cafe, plus Sushi and Sashamini and the colorful Chota Restaurant.
Al Seef Resort & Spa by Andalus is located just a 20-minute drive from Abu Dhabi’s city center. The impressive Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is just a 10-minute drive away, and the project-in-progress Saadiyat Island is 20 minutes away by car.
How to Get There
We booked a transit stay months ago and specifically requested a 1-bedroom apartment from 10 am to 8 pm, so both an early checkin and checkout. Nobody bothered to let us know that we couldn’t make such a request so we thought it would be ok but when I called the day before they said it might not be possible. We did, after much angst, finally get our room at around 11:30 am.
It was a spacious apartment (9B2) and seemed nice and clean. There was a limited amount of cutlery in the kitchen and no power points in the bathroom. Being on the top floor meant climbing 3 sets of stairs as there are no elevators in the complex.
The surrounding shops and restaurants in the area were perfect for our requirements and looked lovely lit up at night.
It is our opinion that a bit of a spruce up ie. attendance to maintenance like replacement of light globes and this place could easily score 4 stars.
The rooms are extremely dirty, cermaic tiles are broken, mold and fungs inside the toilet, no glasses for water or anything inside the room, fridge is soo smelly, rooms are not isolated so next room can hear you in a very bad way, this hotel is not recommended at all, and i wonder how its 5 stars
I would like to start by stating that this hotel is my number 1 option in Abu Dhabi and it is very sad that i face these kind of issues here. I have stayed in this hotel around five to six times this year and i always have the same issues. Firstly, cleaners come to clean the rooms beside you at the morning and they are super noisy, i tried calling the reception to seek help and nothing helped the noise stays as it is. Because of this noisy experience, i call the reception again and request for an hour extra on the check out time and i was literally told “This is not my fault and a procedure is a procedure check out time is 12:30”. I am writing this to help others avoid those situations.
I was 4 nights un this place during a business visit. I was delayed by Alitalia in Rome one night but they still kept my reservation . Staff very friendly and top notch professionals especially Omer from India and a supervisor from Uzbekhistan. They were always helpful and caring and for me remains one of best places and staff i have ever been. It was my first time but thwy have earned a client.
2 bed, ground floor pool view apartment. Feb 2019
Just returned from an amazing stay, fantastic location for us having numerous restaurants on site and the supermarket. Taxis always available.
We had no issues at check in (at 5am local time) and found all the staff exceptionally friendly and helpful.
As a mention.. Kitchen equipment is limited but adiquate. Window and door locks sometimes a little tricky.. But otherwise wonderfully spacious apartments.
WE LOVED IT and We wouldnt want stay anywhere else when we return next.
Info.. Airport taxi roughly 50AED, Yas taxi roughly 50AED.
