We had a wonderful experience at the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr in Abu Dhabi. From day one when we arrived we were looked after by the Duty Manager Ms Farida Samedzade who was very welcoming and showed us to the room. She also advised if we required any thing to give her a call and she also made arrangements for the cot & hi-chair to be placed in the room for our baby. As a manger and leader Ms Farida led by example and provided us with world class service during our stay. As for breakfast I want to give a special mention to Vicky and Romar who both went the extra mile to make us feel at home and no special request was ever too much especially for our baby. I think both should be commended for their amazing hospitality and service. I think credit is also due to Roshan the manager at the Cuiscene Restaurant for ensuring that the team deliver high standards and most importantly service with a smile. Thanks also to Arlene, Joyce, Angelo, Kushpal, Tijo and the rest of the breakfast team. I would also like to thank all the telephone operators who attended to my daily calls. They were always very friendly and polite. An overall thank you to all the staff at the beach with a special mention to Sanjiv and Younis who always ensured we had everything we required from towels to sun loungers. I would also like to give special mentions to Jay and Ivan from the in-room dining team who always looked after us when we required anything. Also a big thank you to Vikas from housekeeping who cleaned our room everyday to a high standard. During these trying times of the pandemic I believe the hotel are doing an exceptional job with various preventative measures in place with regular sanitisation and social distancing. We have stayed at the other Fairmont properties in the UAE including Fujairah and Dubai but I have to say this has been the best. We will definitely return to our second home again at the next opportunity, hopefully during the Eid holidays.

We have visited the hotel during the weekend and as expected, it will be a busy operation. However, you cannot see the pressure in the face of the staff because they keep on smiling and they greet you no matter how busy they are. We would like to thank Ms. Analiza for the suprise set up she have done in our room. Simple but very heartwarming. Johnson for assisting us for our luggage and in making sure that we are settle in our rooms. And Manilyn, for being so kind and active the whole time we are in the hotel. She is so tentative for the guest needs and always smiling. We are so thankful for making our stay memorable and we are looking forward to meet you soon. 💗

The Fairmont is our go to hotel for a staycation in Abu Dhabi and has been for a number of years now. The staff cannot do enough for you , always greet you with a smile and their attention to detail is remarkable. The rooms are clean, modern and include all amenities and the view of the grand mosque is breathtaking! I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone as they have something to suit all.
