HOTEL REVIEW: Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa by Anantara, Abu Dhabi

Even though I am currently in full-on Milano mode from fashion week, I still have some Abu Dhabi posts for you guys, so hopefully you won’t mind all the switching back and forth! After sharing our first stop in Abu Dhabi with you guys (read the full review HERE), of course I also wanted to write up a review of the second hotel we decided on. One area of the city that had me interested right from the start was the Mangroves National Park. Say what? A national park in the middle of a city like Abu Dhabi … meaning: in the desert?! Yes! And it is absolutely breathtaking. We stayed at the Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa by Anantara and I have to say, I really loved it!!

TRAVELS: Sheikh Zayed Mosque

One thing, that you simply can not skip when in Abu Dhabi, is a visit to the Grand Sheikh Zayed Mosque. It is beyond anything I have ever seen, and even our second visit was just as impressive. The white and blue, paired with the palm trees, golden accents and stunning mosaic – soo beautiful! Pictures can’t really do it justice, but I tried to capture the beauty at least a little to give you an idea of the place. We where there just before sunset, which made the light even more magical …

TRAVELS: Saadiyat Beach Club, Abu Dhabi

On most days of our trip to Abu Dhabi we had quite the agenda. Lots of outdoor activities, restaurants and sights to see. However, one day we decided to pay the Saadiyat Beach Club a visit, and it was seriously so worth it! Before visiting Abu Dhabi, I thought it was all desert, cooled down shopping malls and highrises. Who knew there was turquoise water, white sandy beaches and amazing beach clubs? We had lunch at the beach club and then decided to spend the rest of the afternoon at the beach for a lazy day in the sun. If you happen to be in Abu Dhabi, definitely pay this place a visit – you’ll love it, guaranteed!

HOTEL REVIEW: Shangri-La Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi

For the first part of our stay in Abu Dhabi, we decided on the Shangri-La Qaryat Al Beri, which is located across the canal from the stunning Sheikh Zayed Mosque. The second I saw the view on the hotel photos, I was sold. Plus, the entire hotel is styled in Arabic decor, which is something I wanted. Usually I prefer more modern interios, however, for Abu Dhabi, I thought the more traditional look was perfect. Greeted by dates and coffee, we immediately loved the place. Even more when we entered our room (we booked a deluxe room) and saw the private balcony and canal view – of course with the mosque in the background.
