Simply SUPERB - A to Z! Massuse Hakan is highly recommended! ... :) Friendly reception, organized and clean changing room and locker, no bad smell in Turkish Hammam, steam/sauna/bath about 45 mins ritual is just fine, relax room relaxing. Try Turkish tea with Turkish delight or Turkish Ayran (Laban in Arabic). Close your eyes and rest. Enjoy the felling of being above clouds ... :)

I live in dubai and visited this hotel for a one night getaway - I now find myself wishing I couldve stayed longer. All the reviewers are absolutely spot-on - spend the 200 dhs extra and get a mangrove facing room. The view is breathtaking. The rooms are beautifully designed and are very spacious. I was astounded to see the size of the vanity counter in the bathroom. They have a nice big bathtub and provide bath salts if you want to draw yourself a nice bath - which we did and it was amazing. They have all the amenities you could need - coffee machine, well stocked mini bar, toiletries, etc. A con for the hotel would be its reception staff. They are not the most hospitable people and the greetings looked very forced and fake. But since we spent hardly 10 mins out of our entire experience dealing with them, it didnt matter so much. We ate at the thai restaurant - Pachaylen - very nice food. Overall, our stay was extremely relaxing. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Mangrove facing on a higher level - (I think level 5 is the highest)

We visited this property in the month of May, when the temperatures just started soaring. Room decor was absolutely fabulous and contemporary. Check-in staff was bit rude and could have been more welcoming. Kids loved the pool and the cocktails served in the outdoor jacuzzi served the purpose of being more relaxed. Breakfast was of a great variety and high quality. Worth the visit, but a repeat is ruled out.

Anantara properties are quite unique in their choice of locations around the world and more so in the UAE in general and Abu Dhabi in particular. After having spent two days of pure bliss in their property in the Maldives, we just checked out of the Eastern Mangroves and I must say, they have not only chosen a rare location in the heart of the city but have also been able to reproduce that distinct zenful attribute which demarks them from their competitors.

The choice of earthly warm colours throughout the hotel blends quite nicely with the surrounding environment and double glazed windows completely shield their occupants from the outside world: you might be in the heart of the city but would definitely not feel like venturing outside of the hotel grounds. Rooms are very well appointed and feature memory foam mattresses and intelligently carved sitting areas, the highlight of course being the endless mangrove vista with gently rolling water canals.

The temperature controlled infinity pool boasts a deep azure coating, an invitation for a plunge or a simple dip. Discrete pool staff distribute iced cold towels and lavender sprays, prolonging that feeling of serenity. Further afield, a flock of seagulls gather on the shores of the mangroves, enjoying the last rays of light before nightfall.

Room Tip: Mangrove rooms for a proper experience
