I thought I found a site listing a Fairmont Hotel in Abu Dhabi - Bab Al Bahr. Does this exist yet because I can't find a mention of it in the forum? Most of the pictures are mock ups and the restaurants due to open in October.
We are passing through for 2 nights on our way back to Australia from the UK on January 6 2010. Will this be a building site? Is the area near enough to get into the cit? Any attractions nearby to suit our 16 year old son? Sorry... questions, questions!
Our other ideas for hotels are the Emirates Palace (pricy) and the Shangri La (not cheap either, but we may splurge for 2 nights). Any good? Other advice gratefully accepted! Thankyou.
