Hotel Review: Grand Hyatt Abu Dhabi

We had a wonderful overnight staycation at the Grand Hyatt hotel in Abu Dhabi. Grand Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotels and Residences Emirates Pearl is a luxurious property that features 428 rooms, including 332 King and Twin rooms, and 36 suites (Presidential and Royal), all with private balconies that overlook fabulous views of the city.

We chanced upon this hotel during a previous staycation experience at the InterContinental Abu Dhabi. We wondered what this building designed in a sleek, modern black color was and we found out it was the Grand Hyatt. Somehow it captivated us and we decided that this time, our staycation destination would be this luxury propety.And we were not disappointed!

Note: We’re so glad that the Al Hosn Green Pass status has been scrapped already so there’s no need to have a PCR test before travelling to Abu Dhabi.

Staycation Experience at Grand Hyatt Abu Dhabi

We were quite mesmerized upon seeing the tall building, and even more so upon entering the lobby. The hotel lobby is so grand and spacious and the height of the ceiling spans across 3 floors! It’s very elegant and luxurious and you’ll feel a sense of grandeur from the get-go.

The rooms are also quite impressive. We stayed in a King Room with balcony access, and it was spacious, clean, and well-equipped with all the amenities we needed.

With a plush king bed, luxurious bathroom rain shower, and floor-to-ceiling windows in 42 sqm, this guest room also features a private balcony with views of the Arabian Gulf or the Presidential Palace.

The bathroom was huge and has a central bathtub as its main focal point. There’s a separate walk-in shower and toilet, and there’s also a walk-in closet. It felt really luxurious and a great place to take a soak after a long day of sightseeing.
