Unparalleled service and grand property
Reviewed 9 hours ago


The service here is impeccable, it is truly impressive how consistent their level of professionalism and care is no matter when it is or who you are talking to. From the moment we checked in to the maintenance guys to the gentlemen at Valet, they are all professionals at what they do and always go the extra mile to make sure you are taken care of.

We stayed in multiple 5-star hotels this trip and in terms of the service (which really makes the experience whole, don't you think?), the property and amenities, this resort is hands down the winner. They definitely have me as longterm customer.


The location is also great, you have the best view of the Grand Mosque from here and it is only a few minutes drive away, the hotel also offers a shuttle to and from the Mosque.


We ate at Li Jiang and Giornotte and both were delicious! If you request a table by the window at Li Jiang, you will have a direct view of the Grand Mosque. We went to Giornotte for their Friday brunch buffet and when they found out we had come for brunch but it wasn't available that day, they apologized multiple times and even offered us sparkling wine on the house which was so sweet as we didn't mind at all, we just wanted food!

Thank you Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi for such an amazing holiday and making my first Ritz-Carlton experience so memorable. Can't wait to come back!

Great hotel ...

Great hotel for families- only problem we had was the buffet restaurant- not great choice, but when mentioned at there reception- staff wiped off room service bill which was greatly appreciated.Only a great hotel will acknowledge its mistake and will try to make its guest happy. Hopefully and I’m sure this it’s been directed to the right people .
Otherwise beautiful rooms with a great Housekeeping staff.
Keep up the good work Ritz

Eid was really awesome
Reviewed 3 days ago

It is really a great venue with an amazing view of the Ritz Carlton. We are living in Dubai and we decided to come over to Abu Dhabi to celebrate Eid and have a short break and it was really worth to be here. We have been going out but mostly spend our time by the pool. The service was really good though it was busy on eid but the team was so helpful.
Thanks for all front office team and everyone specially yellow dress ladies in the lobby they are very supportive and kind. Call center staff also doing a great job.

When you think of the Ritz, you think of the best of the best in hotels.

We had a staycantion here and it didn't disappoint.

The service, food and facilities were excellent and it is high recommended. You do pay more than the average but it is the Ritz. You can find some deals online and in the months of Ramadan it is a little cheaper than usual.

If you can go and visit. You'll be glad you did :)
