Time Out Says

If you’re looking for a place to stay that offers a gateway to the UAE’s capital, then look no further. Set on the banks of Abu Dhabi’s Grand Canal, the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr is an ultra-modern hotel situated at one of the most historic parts of the city.

Overlooking Khor Al Maqta, with the incredible Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque standing on the other side, the hotel has 369 rooms and ten restaurants and bars, as well as beaches, a health club with excellent gym facilities, and a stunning Olympic-length pool.

There are also plenty of things for kids to do, with an excellent children’s pool available, too. Anyone who wants to be adventurous can pick up water sports equipment to get out on the canal.

For those who want to go out and explore, there’s a free shuttle bus to key points around the city, too.

Anyone with a penchant for great food will be spoiled for choice, with everything from Italian to Japanese cuisines available at restaurants including Café Sushi, Marco Pierre White Steakhouse & Grill and Maison Beirut. If you’re more interested in the nightlife side of things, check out Sports Café, Chameleon Terrace or the brilliant al fresco Puesta Del Sol.

A great location, beautiful views, loads of places to eat and enjoy yourself and plenty to keep you and the kids occupied. Fairmont Bab Al Bahr ticks plenty of boxes.
