The first think that strikes you when you see the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr is its sci-fi façade, illuminated in an intriguing circuit-board style pattern.
But then you go inside where you’re further impressed by the atmosphere of sophistication and the quality of the service. The resort has 369 luxurious rooms and suites, many of the offering great views of the Arabian Gulf, but all of them well-appointed and elegant in design. There’s the exclusive Fairmont Gold hotel-within-a-hotel experience, featuring concierge service, a dedicated check-in and check-out area a private lounge with drinks and canapés, and much more.
With regards to the dining options, there are five venues to choose from, most notable being Pierre White’s Steakhouse and Grill (the first steakhouse to open in the region), and Frankie’s Italian Restaurant and Bar (no points for guessing what kind of food is served here).
This stunning beachfront hotel offers easy access to Abu Dhabi’s center, as well as its airport and numerous golf courses. Also close by is the impressive Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, one of the city’s most important landmarks.
