This was my second visit to this location. It started with me being greeted by name and being remembered by almost every staff member who I saw. The club lounge was an amazing experience. There has been almost zero turnover which shows they treat their staff wonderfully. I was greeted by Nico and ranga by name and we talked about my past visit. Joseph was as amazing as ever and Reggie made sure my dietary needs were met. A new staff member (Casey) made sure that I was always happy and conversed with me in two different languages. I cannot say enough good things about the lounge. The brunch is also a great aspect of this hotel. If you enjoy the multitude of restaurants at the location you will love the brunch. High quality food and the amazing staff will make sure you are happy. Wagyu beef and high quality fish were my gotos every Saturday while I was here. Khina will greet you and Sushi will take care of you. Management also makes sure you are well taken care of. The front desk will help with anything you need. From directions to making change to a friendly conversation, every staff member I have interacted with will spend the time and make the effort to make your stay memorable.

The absolute best brunch in Abu Dhabi, if not in the region! The dishes are delicious and the presentation, sublime! From foie gras to lobster tails, to Peking duck and wagyu beef to scalops and freshly made pasta prepared in wheels of parmesan, we are always spoiled for choice! All staff are attentive, however its a delight being looked after Furkan(I do appologise if I misspelled his name), an incredibly warm, guest oriented gentleman. We have already enjoyed the brunch several times, within a few months, we'll keep coming back and we'll confidently continue recommending the restaurant! To the chefs, the management, Furkan and the rest of the staff, thank you!

The location on the grand canal with views of the majestic Grand Mosque add splendour to this spacious and luxurious hotel. The staff from the welcome area to the reception to the pool are eager to help the guests and ask for any requests. The main lobby of the hotel is grand which is representative of the luxury of Ritz Carlton. The villas are spacious and there is nice concept of terraced gardens. The beach is not that big but enough for a nice dip in the water with view of the city. The adults pool and kids pool are nice with enough space. The breakfast is sumptuous and even the other items on the food menu are worth it. There was some work going on at the resort which caused some noice disturbance. This was mentioned to the hotel staff and the manager Gerard took notice of it. He graciously offered us a late check out and a some colouring books for the kid. We appreciate his gesture. The Grand Mosque is worth a visit from there for the grandeur of the place. There are good options for food within a short distance if you prefer to try the different cuisines available in Abu Dhabi. We will recommend this hotel to business guests as well as recreational guests. We did the booking in the name of Kunal Rishiraj. We thank the staff for a comfortable stay. We will like to come again for a holiday.
