Staycation: Fairmont Bab Al Bahr, Abu Dhabi

Picture perfect in every respect, this stunning waterfront hotel will refresh body and mind 


Floor to ceiling vistas of Abu Dhabi Creek and Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque are reason alone to stay a night or two, and we recommend springing for a One Bedroom suite for the ‘bath with a view’ experience. The interiors bring the outside in, embracing an organic theme with marble, walnut wood panelling and bamboo flower inspired soft furnishings that are effortlessly chic.

With 10 dining venues to please the palate, foodies will be in their element. Feel the Latin vibe at Puesta de Sol where tasty tapas, live music and signature drinks make this beach-facing venue a must-do. Maison Beirut takes French inspired glamour and Lebanese culinary tradition to a new level, while the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse & Grill is prime dining at its absolute best.

Hit the lap pool for an invigorating swim before breakfast or get out on the Abu Dhabi Creek waters in a kayak or paddleboard, available to hire at the health club. You can double up on sun, sea and sand thanks to the two beaches. Plus, kids can splash around in their own pool, and burn excess energy at the ping pong table. Abundant sun loungers await those in search of quiet relaxation
