Under this initiative, we have implemented intensified cleaning and safety protocols, working in accordance to guidelines issued by the local health authority and the World Health Organization (WHO).

Now on a lighter and positive note,

Have you taken advantage of this quiet months, to curate new experiences or discover new locations/destinations? If YES Which ?
In preparation to the re-opening of our dining venues, our food & beverage team have remained committed to ensuring our guests enjoy the high standard of service expected with every experience. Most notably the recently launched ‘Gin O’Clock’ promotion at Hidden Bar became an instant favorite with our hotel guests and visitors. The seated brunch concept features a set menu of appetizers, mains and desserts presented by our expert culinary team along with a selection of unlimited beverages to quench your thirst overlooking the beautiful Abu Dhabi skyline and Arabian gulf

What is your favorite feature about your property and destination that you wish to share with my clients/readers ?
On a personal note, I always encourage guests to spend an evening in one of our restaurants, many of them featuring outdoor terraces, where you can take in the sunset and evening view of the city, overlooking the waterfront of Al Maryah Island. In addition, Abu Dhabi has a lot to offer from adventurous tours in the desert to cultural highlights such as the Louvre Museum or the Presidential Palace, or simply walking over to the luxury Galleria shopping mall which is directly connected to the hotel offering unlimited shopping possibilities.
