This hotel is modern and luxurious. Fairmont Gold rooms are worth the extra cost - exclusive dining area for breakfast and evening cocktails with canapes. Floor to ceiling windows with spectacular views across the Grand Canal to the Grand Mosque. Private beach and beautiful pool with shaded pool bar.
