The UAE’s capital city is bursting with cultural experiences, luxurious shopping, outstanding architecture and stunning beaches – and at this five-star hotel, everything Abu Dhabi has to offer is within easy reach. The impressive and world-famous Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is a short stroll from the hotel. The sprawling complex has its own private beach with watersports and fishing available, a colossal 2,000 sq m spa, VIP majlis and a ballroom capable of holding 1,500 guests – perfect for weddings.

While the romantic setting is ideal for couples, families will also find plenty to enjoy with the Ritz Kids’ programme for little guests. Specially designed for youngsters aged between four and 12, the package offers daily indoor and outdoor activities (both half- and full-day) such as origami, jewellery-making, movies, cupcake decoration and more.

Dining options include a steakhouse, The Forge, relaxed South East Asian market-inspired restaurant Li Jiang and a Middle Eastern spot Mijana– as well as Sorso, a sports bar with a classy twist.

There’s also a luxurious ESPA spa and a range of restaurants – including Todd English’s Olives and Barfly by Buddha-Bar – at the adjoining Venetian Village.

Check into any of the stunning suites and you’ll enjoy sweeping views, luxurious living space and even your own butler, if you choose the two-bed villa with plunge pool. This 532-room extravagant resort is one of the finest locations in the city and is perfect for a long weekends away.
