The Fairmont Bab Al Bahr in Abu Dhabi is an absolutely fantastic luxury hotel. Our huge Creek view room, number 639, was exquisitely appointed with separate couch/TV and desk areas, as well as dual sinks in the bathroom area. Everything you cold want, including office supplies and lots of bathroom amenities, was included.
From when we first drove up to the dramatic entrance, the service at this hotel was absolute top-notch. This includes how they prepare your sun bed at the private beach with immaculate gardens. to the restaurant staff. We only stayed one night on our way to Dubai, but came back on the return journey. Although we had checked out several days earlier, the staff were happy to recognize us, welcome us back and store our luggage while we waited for the evening flight.
The only point for improvement I could think of was that there was a funky smell from the shower drain. As I didn't bother mentioning it until check-out, I'm not going to deduct points for it, especially since the reception staff would have been happy to put us in another room.
All in all, the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr is a spectacular hotel, and I would warmly recommend it to anyone looking for a luxury stay in Abu Dhabi.
From the higher level Creek view rooms, you can see the great mosque better.
