Shangri-La Hotel Qaryat Al Beri

The Shangri-La is blessed with possibly the best view in Abu Dhabi, looking across the water to the imposing Sheikh Zayed Mosque.

The look here is understated Arabian (except for the huge gold leaf lobby), and in total there are 214 spacious and very tastefully designed rooms and suites with either balconies or terraces looking out over that view, and with marble bathrooms.

There are five excellent restaurants, including Sofra, an all-day restaurant offering a seriously good quality buffet - not something that many hotels can claim. Hoi An specialises, as the name suggests, in Vietnamese food, while Bord Eau is the fine signature restaurant serving classic French haute cuisine. Shang Palace and Pearls & Caviar, serving high quality Chinese and Mediterranean seafood respectively, complete a mouth-watering culinary quintet.

The CHI Spa offers a range of treatments inspired by traditional Chinese healing therapies and there are five outdoor swimming pools, some for adults only.

Why We Love It

There is a well staffed 'recreation team' to take care of children but the chances are that little ones will just want to muck around on the half mile long beach. So will everyone else, for that matter.
