This is the second time I've stayed here, but before that, I had gone for the day to use the pool a handful of times. This is a great weekend escape from Abu Dhabi, the service and amenities are wonderful, and its proximity to Abu Dhabi is much closer then some of the other resorts way out in the middle of nowhere. I always love my time here.

It was amazing. The resort was breathtaking, the grounds were well maintained, the food was delicious, the staff were extremely friendly, and the room was one of the most beautiful and comfortable. We are looking forward to returning.

Lovely location, choice of activities from the premises, room very good, pool and surrounding vicinity also very good, reception could be warmer for this quality of hotel. A bit out of the regular tourist route but worth the short drive from Abu Dhabi (45 -50 minutes)
