We have just returned from a 2 week trip to the UAE - we were based in Duba with family, however were fortunate enough to spend 3 nights at the Al Raha Beach Hotel.
Previous reviews did not rate the hotel as 5* - it definitely was in our estimations (and we are regular travellers). The hotel was superb, from the moment we arrived and were greated with a welcome drink, to being shown to our room (which was huge), and were then delivered a platter of fruit with compliments of the hotel. We stayed in a Deluxe room, which had everything you could possibly want, including scene lighting. The bathroom did not disappoint, with a huge shower and separate corner bath. It was fantastic.
The setting of the hotel (which was around 20 minutes outside of Abu Dhabi) was beautiful and the pool area was likewise. Breakfasts in the hotel were exceptionally good, with every taste catered for, including all dietery requirements. We ate in the hotel twice, and both times found not only the food, but also the friendliness and 'attention to detail' of the staff to be exemplary.
It was a fantastic place to unwind from the hussle and bussle of Dubai, and perfect for a short stay break. We would definitely recommend the Al Raha Beach Hotel, and will be revisiting in the future.
