luxury hotels in abu dhabi – abu dhabi best hotels

So you’re looking for the most beautiful hotels in Abu Dhabi – luxury hotels in Abu Dhabi. You’re not alone. The UAE is truly the world’s hottest destinations at the moment for luxury hotels and resorts. Abu Dhabi – the capital of the UAE – and Ras al-Khaimah are featured here, and Dubai has it’s own page. There isn’t much in the boutique hotel or design hotels spaces, but these destinations focus on what they’re good at and nail it! And Abu Dhabi and Ras al-Khaimah are good at fabulous luxury hotels and resorts.

As befits one of the world’s leading flight hubs, most of the world’s leading luxury hotel brands are represented in Abu Dhabi. Hyatt shines out from the competition here, with great hotels from both the Park Hyatt and Hyatt brands. St Regis and Anantara are both represented, as is, perhaps more surprisingly, Viceroy, which bought the YAS hotel some time ago. And then, less surprisingly, there’s the Dubai-based Jumeirah brand, which offers the fabulous Etihad Towers, amongst other hotels.

our recommendations

Hotel Lust List isn’t affiliated with any brand, and we don’t get paid for recommendations, unlike some other sites. We evaluate Abu Dhabi hotels based solely on merit – we look for ‘wow factor’, a bit of glamour, and beautiful design.

The hotels below are the best, and only the best, luxury hotels and resorts in Abu Dhabi. Before you choose one, consider what you’re looking to do in Abu Dhabi. Etihad Towers is the closest to the larger shopping outlets, Park Hyatt and St Regis are on the beach in Saadiyat Island and close to the new art galleries, Yas is a short taxi ride from the beach and Qasr al Sarab is in the so-called Empty Quarter – or the desert to you and me.

If you’re looking for an amazing getaway and an experience you’ll remember forever, then you need to go to Qasr al Sarab.
