The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal

Inspiration reveals itself in every corner of The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal, where elements of European architecture stand in graceful contrast to the iconic Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, beckoning the faithful and the curious from just outside the doors of our luxury hotel in Abu Dhabi. The delicate scent of Moroccan rose welcomes guests, leading them to explore our 57-acre waterfront hotel, where artfully designed water features, manicured gardens and Venetian architecture create a luxury oasis in the midst of the Abu Dhabi desert.

Elegant design weaves itself throughout the five star hotel, from the signature acanthus leaf stitched into the linens of our 447 luxury hotel guest rooms and suites and private villas to the unique concepts of our lounges and restaurants. While modern features abound, including state-of-the-art meeting spaces, tradition is honored at our beachfront spa, offering an atmosphere and treatments that draw on local Bedouin culture.
