Fantastic Friday brunch. It’s one of the best Friday brunch in Abu Dhabi. Great food varieties ranging from seafood to wagyu beef. The grilled cheese was exceptional too! Pradeep’s service was exceptional and our wine glass was never empty.

We spent three lovely nights (Weds-Sat) and we were very fortunate to receive an upgrade to a stunning suite with amazing views over the Grand Canal. We used the gym twice and this was one of the best we have found, most hotels do not put much focus on their gyms, however this was extremely spacious, excellent equipment and the COVID protocols were extremely well managed. The Venetian Village is just a short stroll, we tried the Buddha Bar one night for some cocktails and appetisers, a lovely setting with outdoor seating on the Grand Canal. We also tried La Brasserie for lunch, excellent salads and reasonably priced. On our last evening we had dinner in the Li Jiang, very impressed with their authentic Thai dishes and great service from Leonardo. The pool was very relaxing, we chilled in one of the cabanas and received excellent service from Irfan and the rest of the team.
