Driving off the highway onto winding dusty roads, it was a pleasure to approach the Abu Dhabi's Shangri La and to be gracefully whisked into the hotel. Upon check-in, we were offered Arabic coffee with stuffed dates as a welcome snack, and shown to our rooms. The bedroom was exquisitely decorated and offered a view of the Sheikh Zayed Grand...

I have now stayed at this hotel on two different occasions. The room was quite sizeable with an accessible balcony to overlook the water and the rates are very reasonable. The pool leads right up to the beach and there is a picturesque mosque on the other side of the water. It is a quick 10-15 minute drive into downtown....
