Southern Sun Abu Dhabi is a smart, high-rise hotel, situated in the business district along Abu Dhabi’s northwest coastline. It offers excellent dining options, an enticing rooftop pool, a 24-hour gym and a great range of incredibly spacious rooms and suites.

The location of the hotel couldn’t be better, being less than a mile from the popular Corniche promenade, occupying five miles of gloriously landscaped waterfront. This bustling promenade is packed full of children’s play areas, sport and fitness facilities, cycle and pedestrian pathways, cafes, restaurants and retail outlets – in addition to the superb Corniche Beach and vibrant Al Bahar beach. You’re also well-placed for exploring the Louvre Abu Dhabi and the magnificent Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, which is around 12 miles away. It’s a spectacular sight whatever time of the day but is particularly special viewed as the sun sets. Yas Waterworld Yas Island is 18 miles from the hotel, offering 40 theme park rides, slides and attractions for all the family, while thrilling Ferrari World (also at Yas Island) features the fastest rollercoaster with the highest loop in the world. Abu Dhabi International Airport is around 23 miles away.

Rooms and suites are located from floors 10 to 26, boasting spectacular views across the city from floor-to-ceiling windows. They are incredibly spacious and feature a comfortable living area with a sofa, a large work desk, a flat-screen TV, a minibar and free Wi-Fi. The decor is neutral with warm, earthy tones and Arabic touches, as seen on the frosted fretwork partition dividing the bathroom and the bedroom. The bathrooms contain a separate bath, a rainfall shower, bathrobes, slippers and luxury toiletries. Those requiring extra space should opt for a One Bedroom Suite which also benefits from a well-equipped kitchenette with a fridge freezer, microwave, hob and kitchen basics, as well as a washing machine and dryer.
