“Raha is real Comfort”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

We booked up a long weekend stay at Raha Hotel and I must say, we were not disappointed, it took about 1h half hours to drive there from Dubai and it was well worth the drive. we arrived at 11:00 am, checked in early and given to rooms for our family of 6, two adults and four children. the staff are very friendly and very accommodating. The rooms are very nice, the garden balconies could do with a little of gardening work, that's a small point just to make it perfect. the rooms are lovely and the bath is huge. watching the sun set over the dunes at night is brilliant, absolutely stunning, pack a good camera to capture this. You get free water and mango smoothies at the pool side and in general very well looked after.

The breakfast is very good, we had breakfast ..very good, is the best for the scenic view of the Dunes. Lunch time we tried the main and its was beautiful, nice tasty simple food, very good !! And very reasonably priced. dinner was perfect.

We stayed here for 11 nts from 8th June till 19th June, and was in the new wing deluxe seaview room, which we was upgraded too, from the moment we checked in all the staff were very courteous and helpful, the only issue we had was we asked for a matteress topper and they just left an extra duvet in the room, but the lovely Honey in the Concerige sorted this for us, Honey was very nice and everytime she saw me asked if everything was ok. Everyday the room was cleaned wonderfully, The bathroom is just amazing and so big, the rooms could do with some drawer space theough we thought. The pool area was amazing too, the pool was always a nice tempreture, and the area around the pool kept spotless, the beach area also. Breakfast was amazing had everything you could wish for at Breakfast and even silver cutlery and tea pots etc. Its about 20 mins to the city but we hired a car for our whole stay and went in most evenings, and Yas Island was about 10 mins away in the car. Ive never been to Abu Dhabi and my partner used to work here 20 years ago and has been many times and usually stays at the Meridian or the Beach Rotana, and I chose the Al Raha as it was something new for him and I was happy I did I felt like compared to the other Hotels it seemed like a Beach Resort. Was lovely at the pool as was plenty of sun loungers to choose from and even on a Friday when the hotel was busy as its the weekend in UAE you could still find a sun lounger. I would definately recommend this hotel and would definately go back, and a big thankyou to all the staff who made our stay even more special, from the housekeeping to the Conceirge to the Waiters at Breakfast and the Valet parking..

Room Tip: The New wing is lovely

From arrival at check in to check out the staff could not have been more friendly and welcoming.
We stayed at the hotel with our family who were visiting from the UK.
We booked the Grand View rooms in the new wing.. lots of space for both the extra bed and the cot.
Despite being busy on the Friday the service around the pool was excellent.. a very enjoyable lunch at the pool... including the garlic bread ate by both the 4 year and 18 month old grandsons.
Childrens pool and play area was excellent and well supervised by the lifeguards.
Pool and grounds were excellent.
As we had booked a package the dinner was in the Main Restaurant.Dinner was good but you did get the feel perhaps you were eating leftovers from the brunch, again lots of choice for the grandchildren.
Breakfast was excellent with a very good choice and kept hot where applicable.
Late check was accomodated too...
Not in the centre of Abu Dhabi .. but if you want a break from city life ... very highly recommended.
Overall ; Staff/Accomodation/Food/Beach/Pool all excellent
Book a deal that includes breakfast and dinner...
Ask for a room in the new wing with a Gulf/Beach View
Would visit again without hesitation

Room Tip: As the review - Grand View Room in the hotels new wing.

The personnel are highly qualified. The rooms are nice especially the bathroom. The restaurant are nice but the Quality / price ratio is too low.

The Raha mall near the hotel is not good at all. But the Al Etihad Plaza is quite good.

My husband and I stayed there for one month, we really liked the facilities there, the beach, 2 swimmimg pools, sauna ...etc. we stayed at deluxe room and it was v. Nice, big, the bathroom was just amazing, the balcony and also I saw the new alraha suit and 2 bedroom apartment which they call it deplomatic suit and we can say it is really lexury type but unfortently the royal suit (one bedroom apartment) is below the average u think for a moment that it was only a space then they decieded to convert it to apartment it is 200m sequre but the toilet v small not like deluxe room, No dining table, no washing machine( we have one later) ant they fix it on toilet, the cabinet is too small, no workin desk onle the tv table, the kitchen is not prepared well, the refreg. is v. Small like the one in std room. I think they can do more for this kind of room as there is only 2 royal suit in the hotel!! It is really need to renovate to meet the hotel std.
One more thing about the room there is No soundproof wall, my baby keep waking up duiring his nap becouse of the noisy every day from our neipers
House keepers are very special there, they clean the room well, generouse in complementry things but it is very obviuose that there is a shortage in staff, they didnt come quickly and you can see housekeepers outdoor doing stuff, and the one in kids club see in pool!! I know later that after opinning the extension the admin. Didnt hire any workers which is clear to us.
Yes I may return to the hotel again just becouse the facilities, staff and locaition.

Room Tip: Dont choose a one bedroom, or see the room befor paying, this was our mistake we deal and pay befor...

Stayed in for one night as we came to watch the metallica concert , we chose to stay here since it was the only hotel that offered reasonable rates than of those closer to Yas Island , a very nice hotel with some really friendly staff , we somehow manage to lock the door inside while leaving the key card however the hotel staff was prompt in rectifying the matter . For all those staying here you have to try their grilled chicken burger it is simply heavenly.Furthermore had a awsome view of the water front and was amazed on how it looked simply real !! ,i,e the beach . Rooms were well equipped with all the essentials , and we really had fun with the switch activated tint-glass another first for me !

This hotel really is 5*. Fantastic rooms - amazing marble bathrooms, massive tub, good size rooms, didn't hear a peep from anyone in adjoining rooms and suspect our screaming baby was not heard either - thank goodness.

Service staff were fantastic - friendly and very helpful. The booking process and front desk were amateur hour but who cares once you're there.

Fabulous pool, swim up bar, very child friendly without being a kids club. Breakfast was amazing in terms of choice and quality.

There isn't anything to do outside the hotel but this is the perfect spot for a short stay when you're breaking up a trip elsewhere. It's 10 mins drive from Abu Dhabi airport and they can pick you up or for about 30 AUS or get a cab for half that.

Highly recommended for 1-3 day layover or trip.

The man made beach and ocean bit isn't much and there is a view of a barren F1 track so you would be disappointed if you came for an extended beach holiday.

Room Tip: Stayed in a gulf room with a nice view on the way there (floor 1) and ground floor of the same block...
