The hotel's contemporary design and luxurious styling is complemented throughout with panoramic views from floor-to-ceiling windows.

For informal social and business gatherings, the Pool Bar and Prive are favorites, and the residentially styled Lounge offers an intimate setting for afternoon tea or evening aperos. Within the hotel, four exclusive state-of-the-art salons (boardrooms) are available for meetings and Prive can also transform into a breakout venue for private functions. Abu Dhabi's only spa-in-the-sky experience, Rayana Spa is perched on the 19th floor overlooking the city. The elevated oasis complements the hotel's other wellness amenities which include a fitness centre, suspended outdoor pool and whirlpool.

We are great food lovers and enjoy dining out every week. Having recently moved to Abu Dhabi we were pleasantly surprised by the 18 degrees restaurant at the stunning leaning tower that is the Hyatt Capital Gate Hotel. With a beautiful décor and an intimate dining room combined with a very friendly and welcoming staff, we started our visit off great. Our starters were delightful and we were especially astonished by the Smoky Eggplant. It’s out of this world! As for the main, we had the exquisitely presented grilled King Prawns & Tomato Salad and it was perfectly cooked while still tender and succulent. My compliments to all the staff that went above and beyond from the moment we step into the hotel door! It has now become one of our preferred restaurants and a place to recommend all our family & friends visiting Abu Dhabi! They will be in for a treat!

This venue has consistently never failed to impress. Excellent cuisine and service. I have now visited the restaurant on 8 separate occasions, from its opening to my most recent visit 3 days ago. On each and every occasion the staff have been attentive, without being intrusive, informative and advised on individual dishes on the menu, which has been refreshed and updated. The kitchen is open and from the Head Chef down all are committed to providing the best fayre and genuinely keen to solicit feedback, even throwing in the odd free taster dish! I eat out regularly and apart from Kennedy's (Officers Club) I would say a meal at 18 represents excellent value for money. The only negative is accessing the site by car due to extensive roadworks and construction around the venue.

A bunch of friends who happened to be in Abu Dhabi at the same time suggested 18 degrees to have dinner. We ordered a bunch of stuff as appetizers plus our individual main course. Everything was great, the food, the drinks and of course the view as this restaurant sits on the 18th floor of the Hyatt Capital Gate hotel. If it's not too hot, I recommend having dinner or at least drinks outside to appreciate the view.

Perched on the 18th floor at 18 degrees this great restaurant needs to be known. Great ambiance awaits guests ready to experience a journey in the Mediterranean sea. This restaurant has great views, great background music. Oxana my server was fantastic, she was professional, added her personal touch, was knowledgeable about everything on the menu. The food was superb except the dessert which was average and suggested not by Oxana but by another person. Turkish coffee is an experience. I shall be back!
