Walking into the lobby for the first time, we were struck with the beauty of this hotel, the decorations and rugs were breathtaking! Our room was very large with comfortable beds and a beautiful bathroom. We had a large balcony with a lovely view of the pool and the beach. The hotel is attached to a mall which includes a... More

Weve used this hotel 5 times now for residential business events and it exceeds our expectations for a city hotel. Staff and management are very accomodating of our sometimes strange and short notice requirements. Foods good. Rooms are high end. Forced to use Park Hyatt for another business event in December and we were left wishing we were back at... More

I have just returned from a week's stay in the Al Raha Beach Hotel and unfortunately my overall experience was a disappointment. On the positive side, this is a beautiful hotel and our room was lovely and spacious, with a huge and very nice bathroom. The pool area and communal areas are also very well kept. However, we felt this... More

Not too close to too far from Downtown. The taxi to the city is about AED50. To Ferrari world about AED25. The night of checking the room we paid for was not available.

My son and I stayed here and also enjoyed a trip to Ferrari World. The hotel staff was all very friendly and helpful. I requested a Christmas Card for my son, as a way to personalize the gift (The stay and theme park were his Christmas gift). Though the card wasn't in the room when we arrived, when we returned...

Just come back from an 11 night stay at this hotel and we did not want to leave. Although our first room was on the front and noisy one we told the reception we were immediately moved to a better room. And the first room was all because that was what the travel agent had booked.

Al Raha Beach Hotel is one of the best places I've stayed in the UAE. The hotel and its surroundings are beautiful, and the service is fantastic. The staff makes you feel like you are the most important guest at the hotel - from the front desk to housekeeping. I go there every time I stay in Abu Dhabi.
