Beach Rotana Hotel and Towers

Sandwiched magnificently between the bustling Abu Dhabi streets and the calm waters of the Arabian Sea stands the Beach Rotana and Towers Hotel — a gleaming fusion of ultra-modern architecture and traditional Emirati hospitality.

Sandwiched magnificently between the bustling Abu Dhabi streets and the calm waters of the Arabian Sea stands the Beach Rotana and Towers Hotel — a gleaming fusion of ultra-modern architecture and traditional Emirati hospitality.

Welcomed into the grand lobby by a fleet of immaculately dressed valets, you are immediately thrust into a kingdom of gold-trimmed opulent décor with grand corridors leading off to the hotel’s many rooms and restaurants.

For chief executives hoping to keep up with the day-to-day running of their business while relaxing in plush surrounds, the hotel’s 11 executive suites should cater for your every need. Complete with high-speed internet access and an optional butler service, those staying in the suites also have exclusive use of the Club Rotana Lounge. Enjoying expansive sea views, the facility incorporates a dedicated meeting room with the latest in audio-visual equipment and a state-of-the-art business centre. And when you’re not conducting a high-powered meeting, treat yourself to complimentary afternoon tea or cocktails while catching-up with current affairs on one of the many flat-screen TVs adorning the walls.

As for the executive suites themselves, even the most well heeled CEO can’t fail to be impressed by the standard of living space available. In addition to the generously sized bedroom and living room and dining area, the regal bathroom has the added draw of a jacuzzi and separate walk-in shower. After pampering yourself in your deluxe surroundings, CEO Middle East recommends a visit to the hotel’s own seafood restaurant, ‘Finz’, located near the private beach behind the complex. The wooden structure built on a jetty out to sea, houses a relaxed eating experience offering an a la carte menu with a wide range of cooking styles. CEO Middle East sampled the catch of the day, which comes fresh from the sea to the kitchen via the jetty at the rear of the restaurant. For non-fish lovers, the Rotana’s other eateries include Benihana — a Japanese style restaurant, Rodeo Grill, which apparently delivers the best steak in Abu Dhabi, and Trader Vic’s, serving-up French Polynesian cuisine.

If you’re lucky enough to get a well-earned break from the day’s business dealings, the hotel’s private beach provides the perfect secluded spot to soak up the sun. The more adventurous executive can take advantage of a range of water sports, or maybe you just want to kickback by the huge swimming pool accompanied by the Bay View restaurant and bar. For sporty types you can let off steam at the fully equipped gym, fitness studio, tennis and squash courts and then unwind with a massage or a visit to the Sauna.

The Beach Rotana and Towers provides the ideal location for executives bound for the thriving UAE capital. The perfect balance between lavish luxury and first-rate corporate facilities should enable you to truly combine business and pleasure on your next visit to Abu Dhabi.
