Understated luxury

Attention to detail in all things: lovely Le Labo Rose 31 toiletries, wonderful Gold Floor benefits and well-trained considerate staff.
Should we ever stay in Abu Dhabi again we would choose the Fairmont, having visited both the Jumeirah at Etihad Towers and the Emirates Palace during our recent stay. For us it was perfect: sleek modern design with large rooms and spacious bathroom with wet room. The Gold Floor is definitely worth the extra cost, as they really look after you with great service and advice. The complimentary afternoon tea and evening cocktails and buffet was exceptionally generous and of a very high standard. I particularly appreciated them offering us a 4pm checkout and then allowing us to remain on the Gold Floor until our departure at 7pm, as we were able to relax in their lounge and partake of tea then buffet! I must mention the views of the Grand Mosque and Abu Dhabi creek, as it was absolutely stunning.

amazing views of the harbour and the Grand Mosque

friendly and helpful staff
The room was well-appointed albeit on the compact end of the spectrum considering the endless desert and harbourfront grounds of the UAE. Abu Dhabi is laid out like Stockholm with many islands connected by bridges and Bab Al Bahr is on Al Maqta which is a bit far from shopping and sightseeing when compared with Emirates Palace etc.. I would recommend this hotel for those looking for tranquil luxury with time to spare.

Luxurious stay

The pool/beach, the gym, the view
We definitely got our room on some sort of deal, because the price we paid was well worth it! This hotel is so clean and elegant. All staff were fabulous. The view over to the mosque is beautiful, which you can see just by going up the hotel lift. The gym had great facilities with friendly staff - there is even a separate women's gym. The pool has lots of loungers and is really nice and clean, plus it is right on the beach so you only have to walk 20 metres and you can swim in the sea too.

Best of the best

Luxurious rooms, kind staff, great facilities
My wife, two little girls and I enjoyed every moment during our stay in Fairmont Bab Al Bahr. The 'Fairmont gold rooms' were certainly shiny and worthy. The swimming pools for both kids and adults were astounding. I salute Fairmont on the standards they set up as well as the world-class hospitality care they to manage to offer. In short, Fairmont you surely got my loyalty and respect. P.S special thanks to a particular staff member who works at night shifts in the 7th floor lounge (a lovely African lady) for her kindness and professionality.

Upholds the reputation of a 'Fairmont Hotel'

The swimming pool, attentive staff, location
This is quite a good choice if you want to stay in this vicinity. Next door, there is Traders and then Shangrila, and this would be the middle of the three in price range. As such, I don't think it presents the best value of the three though (and I have been to both of the others). The swimming pool is good, and the staff quite attentive. It just seemed quite long walking across the corridors and getting to the pool though from the room we were in. The room standard was good - the bed especially was comfortable. We got this hotel at a very good rate, which presented some value. However, at no discount, I probably would not put this as my first choice against other superb Abu Dhabi hotel choices.
