My partner and I stayed during our recent stay in U.A.E. at the Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa by Anantara in Abu Dhabi. We just can say it was amazing! All facilities were great: The rooms are very spacious and the design of the hotel is stunning. A beautiful mix of Arabic touches and modern shapes, colors and materials. Also the food that the Eastern Mangroves offers, is superb. At the Pachaylen they provide very authentic and tasty Thai food. We enjoyed especially the seafood! Our favorite thou was the grand brunch-buffet! What a fantastic and delicious selection of excellent food. One of the best we ever had - "chapeau"! But no hotel is good without its staff. At this point we want to thank again the German reception manager, who was very helpful and extended with his professional approach a very welcoming atmosphere at the reception. He and his staff brought our beautiful stay to a completely round figure. Thank you very much, we will come back - for sure!

Ive just returned from a weekend getaway to this fantastic hotel. I can honestly say that this was one of the nicest hotel stays I have had in a long time -here in the UAE. Fantastic front desk staff, excellent guest relations team members and the restaurant team are really attentive. the food in the hotel is some of the best presented and tastiest I have seen on a buffet ( breakfast and brunch). the A la Carte offerings are well thought out and interesting. This hotel is situated among the rest of the development that is not quite finished yet - but it does not detract from the experience at all, a lovely pool area ( maybe a little small for a Spa type hotel) , the spa area is well thought our-the Hamam was unfortunately not working during our stay but that didn't take anything away from the overall experience.

Staying at Eastern Mangroves Anantara in Abu Dhabi, made our visit to the UAE - unforgettable. We enjoyed our stay so much, that we extended it with one more additional day, even though we had a new hotel reservation in Dubai!

First and foremost our special greetings and thanks to magnificant staff members of the hotel: Yasmine and her colleagues Jawad and Karim, who helped to make this stay the most most pleasent, comfortable, relaxing and rich in expiriences ever ( desert safari was a superb suggestion!).Thanks also to Hayat, who smoothly orginized the ditails of our program.
Everybody was so informative and caring.
You all deliver an exeptional level of professionalism and efficiency in very discrit way - which is the very base of a succesfull way of running a hotel.
We couldn't be more pleased.

We have got this amazingly big and beautifull suite, with balconys facing the mangrove. With its own huge terrasse and very own dipping pool!!!
The feeling of waking up in the morning and seeing the fog over the creek as well as hearing the noises/singing made by different kind of birds - is just undescribable. Staying in this oasis of serenity and peace so close to the bare nature and at the same time seeing the rest of the modern Abu Dhabis in the far skyline, is a spectacular combination.

The rooms and hotels decor as well as the interioer are tastfully balanced according to the hotels concept, and it gives it the perfect calm energy and atmosphere. Just as a spa resort should have.

We have tried both restaurants at the hotel and they were fenomenal. The Ingredience offered on of the most amazing buffet dinner concepts we have ever expirienced. All the major couisines of the wolrd were represented..Not mantioning the dessert selection !!!!
Fantastic breakfast. Beautifull food quality.

We also enjoyed 3 hours of amazing Royal Spa. Most relaxing expirience ever - well balanced, comfortabele and professional. Eastern Mangroves has Abu Dhabis first hamam - which was absolutly beautiful - and a must to expirience.

We travel a lot and pay great attention to the details. Eastern Mangrove Anantarna and its staff - who make it all possible - deserve all the superlatives they can get. This is an amazing spot in the vibrant and hype city of Abu Dhabi which we are recomending to everybody we are talking to about our most recent trip.

Thank you all again and hopefully see you very soon:-)

Room Tip: We recomend to choose a room overlooking the mangroves. A room on a higher floor will give you an amazing look over the vast streching mangroves.

After an unsatisfactory experience at Desert Islands Resort & Spa by Anantara over Christmas, my friend and I returned to Abu Dhabi where I live. She lives in London and is a great traveller, specializing in Thailand and other places where Anantara is well known for outstanding top class resorts. So I drove to the Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa by Anantara to show her what a real Anantara Hotel in the UAE looks like. From the first glance at the pool and the well organized areas around it - one for sunbathers, the other with grass/Astroturf and tables and comfortable chairs. We sat down, had some drinks, and then a light lunch. There was shade and sun for each according to her desires, a generally civilized atmosphere, people in street clothes lunching or having coffee while on the other side of the pool the swimmers and sunbathers enjoyed themselves.

We ended up spending New Year's Eve at Eastern Mangroves with four of our friends, and everything was excellent from the widely varied buffet to the flowing wines and champagne for the midnight hour.

The next day we each had the Anantara Signature Massage for 90 minutes of sheer muscle workout and pampering. My friend has left but I'll be back next month for another Signature Massage.

We just came back from a one week holiday at the Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa in Abu Dhabi. The hotel is a wonderful oasis of peace and friendliness and we can recommend it warmly.
The rooms - choose a Kasara Mangroves room, they're great! - are spacious and comfortable. The food at the hotel restaurants is fantastic. The breakfast and dinner buffet are none of the ordinary, odd buffets, but very tasty and versatile with a lot of freshly prepared dishes.
The best feature of the hotel is its friendly staff. From the helpful members of the concierge desk - Karim, Shetty and Frederick in particular - to the warmhearted reception ladies to the restaurant crew of Chef Hussain, all employees made our stay special and we really felt well received and enjoyed our stay very much. Highly recommendable!

Room Tip: Take the Kasara Mangrove room: it does not only give you a great view of the mangroves and is quieter than the city facing rooms, but it also gives you access to the Kasara Club with its lovely lounge and snack service.
