Unfortunately,only stayed one night after a late arrival. Hotel is without doubt one of the best I have seen. Fabulously luxurious with an exotic feel so often missing in modern hotels. Staff cannot be faulted, up there with the finest hotels of Europe, but for considerably less. Highly recommended.

It is Perfect to relax and have a great massage. We stayed there for 3 hours and we all enjoyed it a lot. We had different types of massages but we were all really happy with what we got. I would recommend this spa :)

Grand Mosque Views
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This hotel was lovely - so glad we chose to stay here for our trip to Abu Dhabi.
Superb views of the grand mosque from the hotel and the beach.

The hotel restaurants were brilliant, we particularly enjoyd Hoi An and the specific nights that were put on in the Sofra Blvd buffet restaurant were really good value for money.

The only thing that could be improved on slightly was the speed and frequency of the pool side / beach side drinks service, it was quite slow to get someones attention.
However in the grand scheme of everything else the hotel had to offer this wasn't a big deal and shouldn't put anyone off.

Unbeatable - truly the best

This hotel is simply the best. A very wise person once told me “if you’ve had a wonderful time somewhere, never go back as you will only be disappointed”. Well this hotel has disproved that!
Every single member of staff goes above and beyond, from the pool to room maintenance. You are truly welcomed, with no fake behaviour.
We tried every restaurant and every one had charm and excellence, and great food. Our room was immaculate.
You really could not want for more, wish I were still there.
Do not hesitate to book, you will have the time of your life. Enjoy!
