Luxury Hotels in Abu Dhabi

Posted on 02. Dec, 2012 by in Destinations

With 2013 just around the corner, now is the perfect time to start thinking about the best places to holiday next year! Whilst some holiday destinations are just as popular today as they were 10 years ago, there are also lots of new destinations which are fantastic for a luxury getaway! Some of the most exciting destinations for 2013 are in the Arabian Gulf – and not just Dubai! So, whether it’s a long weekend in Oman, a family trip in Bahrain or a luxury holiday to Abu Dhabi – you should consider looking further afield for your 2013 holiday!

Abu Dhabi is certainly becoming more popular as a holiday destination – and it’s easy to see why! Nearby neighbour Dubai has been receiving a lot of the traveller love in recent years, but the building and opening of magnificent hotels such as the Etihad Towers and The Ritz-Carlton, Abu Dhabi Grand Central are making holidays to the ‘Garden City of the Gulf’ ever more appealing. The pace of life in Abu Dhabi is a little slower than in Dubai, but you’ll find just as many exciting attractions, as well as an impressive 249 miles of pristine coastline.

Here at Elegant Resorts, we’re convinced that a holiday to Abu Dhabi is the perfect summer holiday for 2013 – especially because of the understated luxury of the new Abu Dhabi hotels. If you’re looking to find the perfect place to stay on an Abu Dhabi holiday, take a look at some of our favourite hotels!

The Emirates Palace, Abu Dhabi

Completely unlike any other accommodation in Abu Dhabi, The Emirates Palace is big, bold and beautiful. Themed around a luxury palace, this is one of the best ways to experience Arabian hospitality at its most impressive.Emirates Palace - Abu Dhabi, Elegant Resorts

If you’re looking for decadent accommodation, you’ll certainly find it at The Emirates Palace! The stunning Coral Rooms have views of the one million square metres of landscaped gardens, whilst the Diamond Rooms look out onto the Arabian Gulf and kilometre long private beach. Alternatively, choose to stay in one of the Khaleej Suites and take advantage of the 24-hour butler service that you won’t find anywhere else in Abu Dhabi!

After a relaxing day in the Anantara Spa, or exploring the hotel’s gardens, you’d be delighted to sit down for pre-dinner drink at the Al Majlis and Caviar Bar! Enjoy an aperitif on the lobby level, before making your way to the Etoiles Abu Dhabi – a European-influenced restaurant which creates amazing plates of food, and also plays host to international DJ’s and award-winning musicians each evening. Dance the night away in one of the most popular hangouts in Abu Dhabi at The Emirates Palace!

Jumeirah at Etihad Towers

Dramatic and sculptural, the Jumeirah at Etihad Towers hotel consists of one of the five Etihad Towers which creates an impressive vista on the Abu Dhabi skyline. Sophisticated and modern, you’ll find stunning accommodation set in a beautiful location – complete with a private beach and three tranquil swimming pools!

The rooms at the Jumeirah at Etihad Towers make the most of the stunning setting – Tower Rooms offer guests a view from the floor-to-ceiling windows, and a freestanding bath tub is carefully placed to make the most of the spacious sunlit bathroom. Deluxe rooms can also include a comfortable living area which includes a day-bed, perfect for a relaxing nap in your air-conditioned room in the heat of the day. If you’re looking for even more space, the hotel’s Sky Suite includes a living area with contemporary art, a dining area which can seat up to ten people (along with a private butler service) and a beautiful bedroom complete with walk-on dressing room and en-suite with walk-in raindrop shower – along with a freestanding bath.Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, Abu Dhabi, Elegant Resorts

There’s no better way to round off the day at the Jumeirah at Etihad Towers than a reservation at the Brasserie Angélique for dinner. Dine on some home-style French cuisine in a chic setting, before grabbing some relaxed cocktails in the hotel’s Lobby Bar. If you’re looking to celebrate a special occasion, Quest is a contemporary Pan Asian restaurant with 360 degree views of the Abu Dhabi cityscape – and the 7 course tasting menu is absolutely outstanding.

The Emirates Palace and the Jumeirah at Etihad Towers are just two of the wonderful hotels in Abu Dhabi; to find out more about these hotels, and other Abu Dhabi accommodation (including The Ritz-Carlton, Abu Dhabi Grand CentraL, which is set to open next month) take a look at the range of Abu Dhabi luxury hotels from Elegant Resorts.
