So I’ve decided that every time I set foot in a hotel that is remarkable, I will blog about it! The most recent of such hotels was Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, Abu Dhabi. We had a bank holiday in Dubai and my friend and I really wanted a mini break so we found a nice deal for the hotel on booking.com and decided to drive down for an overnight luxurious treat.
2: The free standing bath – I have a thing for those, and cant wait to have one of my own when I’m older! Followed closely by this little guy in the bath Yes, I’m a bit of a big kid The rest of the bathroom view from the bath tub 3.The Beds!
Very soft bedding draped in what I believe to be a jacquard throw, I almost didn’t want them to dress down the bed when it was time to sleep! Other bits: Reception area The lobby area also had a really nice ambience, and featured a restaurant called ‘Lobby Lounge Restaurant‘, we didn’t get to sample anything on offer as surprisingly we actually hadn’t noticed it on our way in even though it takes up most of the reception area! Sadly, we didn’t have enough time for lunch post checkout as we had nearly two hours to drive back to Dubai… maybe next time!
In all, we both enjoyed the hotel, and had no complaints other than the fact that the hotel does not have a spa for general guest use. The spa was beautiful and had individual rooms with a sauna in each, however, this means that you were not able to just walk in – you either have to have a massage treatment booked or ask for permission to use the rooms out of peak time. This did not end up being a problem for us because one of the rooms was available when we went down so we were able to enjoy our private self applied treatments haha!
Although it was excellent having the rooms to ourselves (the individual spa suites are awesome!), we were just conscious of being kicked out if someone with a reservation walked in! So there is a point to note! Other than that, the Jumeirah at Etihad Towers hotel comes with a big Adele thumbs up!
I’m off to Istanbbul next week, so please let me know if you enjoy these hotel reviews/tours and I’ll be sure to do another one!
