Deluxe Guest Room Double or Twin

Step out onto your room’s private balcony, and you’ll enjoy soothing views of the pool and resort gardens – complete with a cosy dining set to relax on. Inside, a king size bed with Egyptian cotton sheets awaits, plus a marble bathroom and luxe toiletries too.

Executive One-Bedroom Suite

You’ll never want to leave this palatial pad: not only does it have a magnificent master bedroom, but you can gaze out over the gardens and swimming pool from your huge private terrace. Add a double marble bathroom, stylish lounge, and state-of-the-art entertainment system, and you have one very sweet suite indeed.


When you check into this secluded suite you’ll meet your personal butler: they’re on hand at all times, to make your stay as perfect as possible. Set amid gorgeous gardens, these lodgings offer both style and seclusion – and the private terrace is perfect for sundowner cocktails and barbecues.

Garden View Two-Bedroom Villa

With space for up to five people, this self-contained villa is the holiday home of your dreams: each of the two bedrooms boasts a king-size bed, plus a marble ensuite with standalone tub. Self-sufficient guests will love the full kitchen – but we’ll order room service instead, served in the deluxe dining room by the villa’s personal butler.

Ritz-Carlton Suite

Second only to the Presidential suite, this utterly indulgent retreat is ideal for a blow-out break. You can gaze out over the Grand Canal from the two private balconies, have your senses soothed by the bathroom’s colour therapy shower, and enjoy the luxury of having your own personal butler.

Additional room types available. Chat to your lovely Travel Consultant to find the perfect room to suit you, and let us tailor-make it easy.

While you retreat to the spa or head off for a day of exploring, your little ones will love the Ritz Kids’ club: it’s packed with fun and games for tots aged four to 12. As well as indoor and outdoor games, the arts-and-crafts sessions are inspired by Middle Eastern culture – think lantern making and mosaic collages. Children can eat at the club too, and babysitting services are available on request.

No trip to the Emirates is complete without a Friday afternoon ‘brunch’ – and Giornotte’s is one of the best in Abu Dhabi. With unlimited seafood, homemade pasta, and live cooking stations serving everything from steak to sushi, this is one epic feast – and you’ll enjoy bottomless wine, beer and bubbly too. During the week, the restaurant hosts lavish buffets for breakfast, lunch and dinner – complementing the hotel’s more formal à la carte restaurants perfectly.

Ask our Flight Centre Concierge team about booking your restaurants in advance.

Why we recommend The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal

In this city of lavish hotels, it takes an extra special property to stand out from the rest – and this Ritz Carlton resort is just that. Boasting a stately palatial design inspired by the Renaissance period, complete with picturesque fountains and cloister-style facades, the hotel overlooks a pristine beach and Abu Dhabi’s Grand Canal. Even the ‘simplest’ of its accommodations are stunning, with marble bathrooms, private balconies and designer toiletries. The vast infinity pool leads to the powder-white sands, where you’ll find deluxe sunloungers and the fabulous ESPA spa – with a traditional hammam, plunge pools, and lush garden with waterfalls. The dining, as you might expect, is sublime. Our experts’ top tip for an unforgettable night out? Li Jiang serves spectacular Southeast Asian cuisine against glittering views of Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque – the city’s most famous landmark.
