The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal offers a luxury beach resort experience just minutes from the capital’s bustling heart. Set amid lush, tranquil gardens, with softly babbling fountains, and low, Venetian-inspired buildings, the resort affords striking views of the magnificent Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.

The hotel features 447 elegantly appointed rooms and suites, most of which have spacious balconies, family-friendly interconnecting rooms, and 85 private garden houses and suites. The generously proportioned rooms and suites are rendered in a muted palette of cream and calming beige, accented with elements of dark wood and cool stone, creating a restful and harmonious holiday environment.

The garden houses and suites offer spacious terraces shaded by timber pergolas, and unobstructed views of the Grand Mosque, generous sunken gardens, or the gently flowing turquoise waters of the Grand Canal. All the grass on the property is from Australia and the 24 olive trees in the gardens were imported from Spain.

Guests can choose to upgrade their stay to a Club room, which gives them access to the exclusive top floor Club Lounge with its panoramic vistas of historic Al Maqta’a Creek.

With eight restaurants, the culinary journey at The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal will delight even the most discerning palate. Modern, minimal and elegant, The Forge is the signature restaurant. A contemporary steakhouse where the cuisine is classic and unadorned, the focus here is on the highest quality meat from around the world, expertly cooked and simply presented.

An oasis within an oasis, ESPA at The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal offers complete relaxation and rejuvenation. Taking inspiration from 1,000 years of desert culture, the spa’s restful decor borrows from Bedouin colour palettes, textures and materials to create a setting that celebrates serenity and peace. The beachfront spa has 16 luxuriously appointed treatment rooms, a traditional hammam, sauna, steam rooms, relaxation areas, a private beach and an inviting plunge pool with waterfall.
