This hotel is fantastic. We loved the daring design, modern, luxurious and brandnew rooms, glorious pool and poolbar, all against the dramatic backdrop of the enormous mosque (definitely worth the visit by the way, even if you have to brave the scorching heat in a long black dress to get in like I did). We were most of all impressed by the impeccable and yet very personal and warm service. O, and the huge and tasty breakfast selection which could be enjoyed al fresco around a fountain. One minor point: because we like to sit outside, we were a tiny bit dissapointed that our room did not have a balcony, I think none of them do. On the other hand, most visitors would probably be happy to enjoy the magnificent views over the creek from their spacious airconditioned rooms - or from the wellapointed gym.
I do hope that this hotel will get the attention it deserves - it was rather empty when we were there this weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary. If we would ever have to stay in Abu Dhabi again, we'll definitely pick the Fairmont again.
