Fabulous hotel

england

We have just returned from a super week at the Fairmont Abu Dhabi. We had previously stayed at the Fairmont in Dubai and had really enjoyed our experience there, but we decided to opt for the Gold Service this time and we would thoroughly recommend it. Our room was of the usual high standard and was immaculate thanks to the hard work of all the housekeeping staff on floor 7. Our stay was made perfect by the hard working, courteous and friendly staff of the Gold Lounge, who made sure that we wanted for nothing. Breakfast was fabulous and enjoyed in the lounge with an amazing view of the Grand Mosque. We also enjoyed the added bonus of a light lunch and a happy hour in the evening. The main reason for the trip was R&R but we did visit the Louvre with its fantastic architecture and the Grand Mosque, which was absolutely breathtaking. Abu Dhabi is less developed than Dubai but we found it just as interesting and we intend to return.

Stunning hotel and fantastic staff

This is my second visit to the Fairmont Bab al Bahr and I can honestly say it is now one of my favourite hotels. I stopped over on the way back from 10 days in Sri Lanka and the staff hotel were as superb as my previous visit earlier in the year. The rooms are spacious and luxurious with wonderful views. The staff were attentive to every detail to make my staff truly wonderful. Thanks to Prasanna who kept my room beautifully clean and tidy and I really appreciated the additional touch of fresh flowers. Thanks to Manasir who looked after me at breakfast and dinner in CuiScene which offered a wonderful range of meal choices with my half board option. Thanks also to Omar in concierge services who took great care to arrange my salon appointments before I arrived at the hotel. First class staff and service at a first class hotel. I look forward to my next visit.
