Starting from their fantabulous lobby up to their high-class guest room. Our room offers an amazing view of the sea and their pool area which adds relaxation to my stay.... More

We stayed at the Ritz Carlton Abu Dhabi early June 2016. Our room was large and looked out towards the river over the pool area. The bathroom was large with a separate shower and bath. Breakfast each day was lovely and we had dinner at the hotel each night. We celebrated with everyone at the Breaking of the fast dinner,... More

I have stayed there for almost 2 months in 2 bedroom villa and it was just like heaven. We had access to the club lounge so it was unlimited complimentary drinks and 3 meals a day. The staff were amazing and didn't even feel like I'm out of my real home. It was raining so much in Abu Dhabi and... More
