A brilliant location for a weekend escape. This 5 star property has an ambience and style that fits well here in Abu Dhabi. I didn't really need to move far from the hotel all weekend, the souk next door provided extra eating options. The staff are exceptional throughout the hotel except for the pool staff who may have missed the...

This hotel is all about the detail. I had a great time staying. The breakfast buffet and service is fantastic, sit in or outside. Service is brilliant, except around the pool bar. Service was slow and confused at Horizon. Drinks didn't arrive, a steak sarnie and pizza took 45 minutes! And when it did come the chips were cold. The...

Cannot say enough about this place. The hotel was beyond lovely and luxurious, the staff was incredibly well trained, well managed and full of little surprises. The guest experience here goes so far beyond the usual concepts of luxury and customer service.

The Abu Dhabi Sangri-La Hotel is actually more like a large complex of apartments, suites and rooms. It's a five star hotel and would certainly seem to deserve that status. Our suite was immaculate, very well appointed, the staff were attentive and efficient, and the hotel restaurants I visited were splendid. Unfortunately, as I was there on a business trip...
