10/10 Exceptional

Just incredible, speechless…
I wish I could give our hotel more than 5 stars. The level of attentiveness, being treated like VIPs at every step to the way, and just the care of the staff for every single detail during our stay was unmatched. Having stayed at other comparable hotels in Abu Dhabi (Park Hyatt, FS, Rosewood, Conrad), this was definitely the best stay and it was all thanks to the staff (including a special shout-out to Ira for always being there for any request or question). Can’t wait to stay again!
