Treated like Kings”

Amazing view over the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque

we stayed in other hotels which were the same price as the fairmont bab al bahr in dubai, and we have to say that the standards at the fairmont are way above the hotels in the same price range in dubai marina. the treatment we received, the room (and the view!), the facilities, the buffet breakfast (and its price compared to other buffets in dubai)... everything was top notch! the only regret was that we only had time for a one night stay. thank you fairmont bab al bahr for making it memorable. we will surely return!

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.

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.

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.

Fairmont Bab El Bahr is located on the creek with a brilliant view of the mosque. The property is clean, well maintained and has excellent facilities.

The room was great, the pool and beach front were excellent and the staff went out of their way to make my stay pleasant.

The Fairmont is a great hotel, reasonably close to the airport and an easy trip into the main part of Abu Dhabi. There are a great range of dining options, albeit they are fairly pricey. The view of the Grand Mosque is spectacular (particularly at night) if you are lucky enough to be on the beach side of the hotel. I would stay here again.

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.

Perfection ”

I stayed at the fairmont for a long weekend on my way back from Thailand. It was perfect, better than I could’ve asked. The beach is perfect, the hotel and surroundings are just beautiful. Everyone is so attentive and the food in the hotel is wonderful. I felt I was treated like absolute royalty from start to finish. The only thing I would say was that when I arrived at midnight after a pretty brutal flight, I really didn’t need the luggage attendant insisting on conversation on to show me every function of the room - even after I said I really needed to sleep. I will definitely be back, no doubt about it.

Fairmont Gold Room with lounge is exceptional!”

The hotel is nicely located close to the beautiful Mosque, but if you want to live downtown, its a 25 minute taxi ride. However, in the UAE you are never close to everything. We highly recommend booking a Fairmont Gold room, which includes a lounge. Its good value for money, with great food and the sweetest, nicest chef we have ever met. The staff is also very friendly and cozy. Room with a mosque view is breathtaking. Its good value for money, nice and helpful staff, great food (in the lounge) and nice views. Highly recommended!

the rooms and facilities at the fairmont are well designed and comfortable. the pool and beach are were particular favourites. as most people staying here seem to be business travellers, it never got overcrowded. comfortable beds, great views, wonderful rain showers. a truly luxurious experience.be aware that there is the option to choose a la carte at breakfast, unless you ask it will naturally be assumed that you want the buffet breakfast which is alot dearer. and the a la carte portions are huge - try the bircher assemble it yourself muesli.

Amazing hotel and staff”

This was our second visit and we'll be back again for sure. This hotel is slightly further from the corniche but the peace and tranquility you get with it is perfect. The centre hotels we visited when nearby for lunch etc and it was too busy for us with the hustle and bustle you would expect from centre hotel. Fairmont was perfect for us, out of the way but still within driving distance to all the attractions. The staff were amazing and we can't wait to return.

nice and quite place”

quite, clean, nice beach, a way from the city center, big room, frindly staff

Nice hotel to stay in for couples and family. Far away from city, clean, nice rooms, friendly staff, you need to have a car to travel back and forth to city center. I don’t know it the hotel provides shuttles to city center. Nice beach view and swimming pools. You can easily rent Jet Ski. I recommend it for those who want to relax and enjoy sun and sea.

Very beautiful place for a weekend getaway or a romantic getaway or if you simply want to forget the busy city life. You will be transported to a surreal place hidden in the heart of Ras al Khaimah. Suddenly you'll feel that you're in a small village in Greece or something similar. Very friendly staff. Beautiful customer care services. Buggy rides available 24 hours. Good restaurants and bars. Spa and gym facilities and rooms with splendid views. A long portion of deep blue sea with long chairs, umbrellas and a bar nearby. Villas with private pool available. Good size balconies to enjoy your morning coffee with stunning views. Lush greenery and nature. One of the most beautiful places I visited in the UAE.

great rooms and pool but pricey”

50metre lap pool was fantastic for people who actually want to swim in a swimming pool! Rooms also spacious

This is a newly built hotel ... so new it is not yet finished (due Xmas 2010). The spa is still being constructed as well as the gym. There is a temporary gym facility (men and women separate). So expect construction noise if you are going before Xmas 2010. The hotel rooms though are marvellous and there is little to fault them on. The main gripe was the lack of dvd player in a standard room. At this price and in a 5 star hotel, it surely should be standard by now! Hotel food was pretty good and complimentary bottled water replenished regularly in rooms. Hotel is about 20mins by taxi to city centre

a good hotel only for business”

The fitness center is very beautiful and modern ... Thanks to Ranil for his attentions and his professionalism.The Italian restaurant is excellent! We eat really well! Very fresh and quality! Congratulations to chef for choosing of the card! It seems to be in Italy!

frankly i expected much more for a hotel of this standard! although the hotel is very beautiful, modern, design ... wonderful! my room was really nice! i got the suite with view fairmont gold ... large, comfortable ... but never for a moment i felt at home ... it starts with the welcome reception gold: very cold, not very professional, i wanted to have a room on the 9th and last floor but my request was wound with a dry no ... and stop .then i was asked my credit card to block a significant amount of money in anticipation of my possible future expenses during my stay ... and it was with difficulty got to "negotiate" to pay in advance only half of what was required of me (that was totally unjustified because only i know what i would spend!) another problem: cleaning my room: not all at a 5 star! for the fact that i woke up late in the morning, no cleaning! i received a message during the afternoon saying that for respecting my privacy my room could not be cleaned and my mini-bar not recharged! while my room was regularly released at 2:00 p.m. ... no attention to the customer: i asked the capsules nespresso ristretto ... nothing ... i have to ask again the next day ... dirty dishes left in my room ... there had a fruit basket in room on the first day with strawberry totally rotten with mold! but they have not checked the basket before putting it in the room??? what is missing in this particular hotel is attention to the customer ... with rates as high is expected to have little touches that make the stay pleasant and above the price justified! ... nothing ... but the feeling we have is that the only thing that matters to the hotel is money... then this is the first time i see a 5 star hotel without spa center! not possible to perform massage, no steam, no sauna... nothing to relax!! i also tried the other restaurant marc pierre white ... very good but the high prices totally disproportionate and unjustified! in short: a good hotel for business, but especially not

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.

It really is an excellent place for a very relaxing holiday. The hotel is also suitably located if you wish to have a quick getaway from the city life. The staff are very friendly and accommodating; the place boasts of superb selection of restaurants and complete facilities. I love the room's modern interior and the full-height windows indeed offers breathtaking views of the beach and Grand Mosque. I can't wait to be back!
