Hotel Review In Abu Dhabi, World-Class Service At Jumeirah at Etihad Towers Hotel Abu Dhabi

Where it stands on the western finish of the Corniche, Jumeirah at Etihad Towers nowadays finds itself amid a cluster of hotels.
It beholds the simplest (and highest) views of all and is at intervals walking distance of a number of the city’s hottest attractions while being a one-stop by feeding and looking.

Its positioning puts the hotel just a short walk from Emirates Palace and the new memorial dedicated to United Arab Emirates Founding Father, Sheikh Zayed. Marina Mall and the Corniche Family Beach are just a few miles away, while the international airport is a 30-minute taxi ride away. Construction on land at the rear of the hotel is ongoing. There is nothing subtle about these 69-story towers which are designed to stand out. Swarovski-crystal chandeliers wow upon entry, as does the floor-to-ceiling glass-paneled atrium.

The rich interiors continue in the amethyst-encrusted lifts and on conference level with its magnificent pearl-encrusted statement ceiling. Beige interiors and floral carpet motifs provide for a crisp, modern finish. From the valet staff through to the housekeeping personnel, service is efficient and friendly. The one disappointment during my stay involved a breach of the do-not-disturb sign. There are 12 dining outlets, a unisex spa with an impressive menu and a well-equipped gym, along with three pools (including a swim-up bar).

The 1400-capacity ballroom is ideal for weddings, while the 13 meeting rooms are a testament to its business appeal. There’s a private beach, a collection of high-end stores, and an observation deck offering the city’s highest vantage point. There are 382 rooms and suites and 199 serviced apartments. Deluxe standard rooms offer cityscape or sea views. All have a sitting area and sizeable work space, along with remote-controlled lighting and curtains. The Grand Deluxe room is bigger than the Standard size and higher up, while the Club category offers access to complimentary meals and snacks in the lounge.

The Etihad and Royal suites are the superior choices, with generous floor space, separate living areas, butler service, and personalized check-in. A dining destination in its own right with 12 bars and restaurants, Ray’s Bar and Ray’s Grill are best for dining sky-high or a pre-dinner drink – a mojito costs AED55 (£11), while signature steak meals start from AED160 (£31).

Peruvian spot Toro Toro is the latest addition and offers one of the best-smoked guacamoles AED60 (£12) in the capital. Shisha is available at select outlets from AED115 £22. Breakfast is an elaborate affair served in the Rosewater restaurant. Whether it be eggs, fruit, pastries, Arabic favorites, Asian dishes, exotic fruits, waffles or gluten-free items, it’s all here and good. Double rooms from AED830 £163, year-round. Breakfast not included, costs AED210 (£41). Free Wi-Fi. Club access rooms start from AED1,200 (£275), while the Royal Etihad Suite will set you back AED69,000 (£13,564) per night. Parking and Wi-Fi are free as is the shuttle to and from Marina Mall.
