Jumeirah at Etihad Towers
Ranked #2 of 128 Hotels in Abu Dhabi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 24, 2014

We visited the hotel as our first family holiday. On arrival we were greeted by cold towels and a cold drink. As we arrived early morning, we were lucky that our room was ready.

Rooms are very spacious even with a travel cot, views were amazing. The rooms was fully equipped with an nespresso machine, toiletries, bathrobes, slippers, ironing board, iron and hair dryer.

The nespresso capsules were replenished everyday and we were also provided with complimentary water bottles and fresh fruit daily which was a lovely touch.

There is a shopping mall under the hotel, with all designer shops and a waitrose, which is handy if you've forgotten to pack anything.

The location was great, Emirates palace walking distance and the marina mall was a 15min walk.

We visited the observation deck which is free for hotel guests where we enjoyed a cup of tea whilst taking in the views.

We dined half board, which meant we could have breakfast and Lunch OR Dinner. We could choose from rose water (buffet), Nahaam, liberuit and bice. Drinks were not included and you even had to pay for water which was strange as they provided you with the same complementary water in your rooms.
Alcohol is expensive

We would always have breakfast at rose water, which was extensive and very filling.

Rose water - very extensive selection, chefs certainly work hard. It did get a little monotonous at times, for example the grill selection were the same meats every night.
I think themed nights would be a good idea to mix up the menu
Nevertheless, food was excellent.

Nahaam - was exquisite and of michelin star quality. Ambience and food was amazing, the lobster was divine.

Liberuit - lovely setting and very romantic. It's a modern twist to Lebanese we dined there for my husbands birthday and they provided a cake which was lovely. The mixed grills were delicious as we're the fresh breads.

Bice - probably the least favourite as the food was very average and bland, having said that the deserts were probably better.

Would like to send a special thanks for Muhammad and his team for being so accommodation at rose water for preparing our sons food daily.

Looking forward to our visit again next year.

The Jumeirah at Etihad Towers combines stunning architecture, great views over the Corniche (somewhat obstructed by a recent addition to Abu Dhabi's skyline that is reminiscent of the Shanghai World Financial center in that it also looks like a bottle opener) and highly professional, attentive and friendly service. Help (mostly with a smile) is always only one confused or lost look away. Check-in is fast, accompanied by cool towels and a welcome drink, before you are being escorted to your room by a hostess.
The rooms are modern, very comfortable (we had a King Deluxe) and spacious. The bathroom is adequately sized (especially the shower is big) and generally functional but not special. There is this thing again with the many high-tech light switches that I commented on in a review about another resort...but at least here they are labeled. As a small suggestion, an international power socket that accommodates different plugs would be welcome and is standard in similar hotels, and - as my wife noted - having any kind of free power socket close to one of the few mirrors would greatly facilitate hair drying and styling. I take her word for it.
The pool is lovely and beats the so-called beach - clean as it may be - for hanging out or having a lazy afternoon drink at the pool bar. It doesn't get much sun in the later afternoon which is probably a good thing in summer but leaves it a bit chilly in Feb, so try to get your sunbathing in during the morning.
The breakfast is out of this world, offering huge variety, different cooking stations and pretty much anything you could ask for. The Lebanese restaurant is also quite excellent and has super attentive staff that makes you feel just so much more welcome while enjoying the superb food.
Lastly, the Talise spa was also a nice experience, and as luxury hotel Spas go this one is right up there with all the other ones, but not special. Perhaps being located above and across from the main hotel entrance and car driveway didn't get me in the right Spa mindset.
The location of the hotel at one end of the Corniche and across from the Emirates Palace worked well for us, as it is only a 10 min walk from the Marina Mall and allows for some great late afternoon jogging along the Corniche. Apart from that there are no other sights or points of interest within walking distance and you should be aware that there is quite a bit of construction going on all round the hotel (well, the city, really), which did not however interfere with the great vacation experience Jumeirah afforded us.

Room Tip: The King Delux offers a bit more space and a chaise longue and a larger bed.

A top hotel experience at every level: sophisticated contemporary design; comfortable rooms and stunning public areas; best restaurants in town; top customer service and great location. The only complain is the dirtiness of its glass windowpanes. The building is enveloped in glass and it seems that most of the time it is covered in sand and dust. A veritable pity

The wife and I enjoyed a Grand Club room for Valentine's including a Tranquility Ritual at Talise spa and dinner at Quest, the gourmet restaurant on the 63rd floor (top). After a tough time to find the front entrance, the service was excellent to get us checked in and to our spa appointment on time. The spa experience was one of the best we've had in the UAE.(and we have tried quite a few) including the heated massage. Our room was on the 58th floor with a beautiful view of the corniche. However, the room wide sofa in front of the floor to ceiling windows hindered the view and was uncomfortable. The room is quite spacious with all the electronic controls and amenities you would expect from a 5 star hotel from Jumeirah. Dinner at Quest was over-the -top with a special menu for Valentine's including Beef Cheek for the main entree. The view and service was excellent as was the food, but not quite worth the price. The room was quiet and peaceful. We woke up looking out over a morning fog over the corniche. It was mystical and magical. The lobby is extraordinary and the marble elevators are a colorful experience. All in all, a wonderful experience at my favorite hotel 'chain', Jumeirah.

I thought About this hotel for two months and finally booked it and paid the cost. It was great and worth every cent. Abu Dhabi is an "over the top" place and you shouldn't book a standRd room there. This place is a splurge, however worth every $

for the price, it is a 5 star experience. it was very reasonable. don't forget your passport, it is needed as an ID in this country for anything like checking into a hotel. absolutely fabulous stay. I was jet lagged and was able to use the pool at all hours. and receive room service there so I didn't disturb my sleeping friend. absolutely a fantastic hotel. The view and the rooms were spectacular. don't bother with the breakfast brunch as it is too expensive for what you will eat. just order a la carte. the location was on the corniche with absolutely stunning views of the palace itself and the palace hotel. there is an executive lounge on the 49th floor I believe that is also open 24 hours, just ask the concierge and they will let you in and call ahead so the butlers know you are coming. just a 5 star stay and service. !!!

Room Tip: tower room sea view. just ask for this on check in. all rooms are quiet and luxurious.

Just returned from a 4 night stay. The hotel is absolutely stunning from the reception area to the pool to the room to the restaurants. The staff are very helpful and extremely friendly (but not over the top). If you're looking for a luxury experience at an affordable price try the Jumeirah at Etihad Towers - you'll not be disappointed.
