One night in Shangri-La Abu Dhabi and it was just amazing.
We went here just for a weekend trip, the staff was very helpful and always super friendly to us. They really took care of everything. The Deluxe room was fantastic, perfect view to the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi and a small part of the sea which is looking like a sort of canal.
The hotel complex is quite big, only at the far end, which is the Trader’s hotel, was a bit too crowded, all the rest very relaxing and calm. The pools are ok, not really special, the little private beach strip is good, but again not too exciting. The room is beautiful, still very new and very clean. Only the bed and pillows were a bit too hard for us, so not very comfy but this is personal preference.
The food was very good, unfortunately we had no time to check the gym.
Overall a real 5 star hotel with very good staff, definitely a place to be and perfect for a weekend trip.
