This trip was planned at the last minute and I’m so glad we chose this hotel. Everyone was very polite and looked after us. We were also upgraded to gorgeous rooms overlooking the Marina. The rooms are very spacious with quality furniture and fixtures. The products provided are beautiful and the coffee machine was a life saver. We dined at the Alba Terrace for breakfast and dinner. Special mention to TT who was hilarious and a joy to have as our waiter. Also to the barista who made the best coffees at breakfast (Sat 14th August). Also to Jerry who was so accommodating , hard working and looked after us at Annex bar. To all the staff at the pool who were friendly and nice. Michelle who assisted us from the start was also great. Overall I will definitely come back. An awesome hotel run by fantastic people. Thank you xx

What an amazing experience! We had an event at Annex and I decided to book a room to cut down on driving. The hotel staff were professional and welcoming as soon as I arrived. I was helped with my baggage by Vim and Brian (when I departed) without any hesitation. Check-in with Osama and his colleague at the front desk was handled expeditiously and professionally which I appreciated after a 2 hour drive. The view of the marina from the balcony was absolutely stunning. The motorized curtains were a welcomed addition to the room as was the separate bathtub and shower. There were more than enough towels and toiletries in the room which eliminated calls for extras. Kudos of the breakfast staff and chef at Alba Terrace. Breakfast was incredible. I didn't expect the à la carte menu to be so extensive. I usually love buffet menus. But this menu had everything and more. I enjoyed my stay and wish O could have stayed longer. If you are looking for a top-notch luxury hotel, this one should certainly be on the list. I will most definitely stay here again the next time I am in Abu Dhabi!

Better late than never. Now that we are on COVID19 Season 2, I want to put it in writing that I had a fabulous Christmas eve and day celebration in this property! They have upgraded my room to suite with a lovely view of the Marina and it was great! Thanks for that guys! The check in and check out was pleasant , a few minutes of wait is still nothing considering it was Christmas. The service was fantastic. The restaurant , though busy, observed proper social distancing. The food and breakfast selection were wide and they were delectable. The ambience is subtle and relaxed luxury. The signature scent by Le Labo is simply enchanting. It is too enchanting that my best friend decided to have it as one of her many scents and she has totally been captivated by The Edition Abu Dhabi. This property is on my top go to places in Abu Dhabi whenever I feel going fancy.

After a few successful staycations and evenings at ANNEX organized by the lovely Elizabeth and Kyle. I decided that there was no where else I would rather spend my 30th Birthday. From the moment I contacted the manager Kyle he worked tirelessly to ensure that everything was PERFECT. Despite the challenges the hospitality staff are facing, he ensured my guests were safe and happy, whilst it was still a night / weekend to remember. I quote my guests ''I think that was the best evening I have had in Abu Dhabi!'' Kyle organised all the beautiful rooms for the weekend and the night brunch. The kindest, positive and most accommodating manager I have come across in the UAE. Annex is a stunning venue for any special occasion. The atmosphere, brunch menu and cocktails, I believe are the best you will find in Abu Dhabi. Curated and served by the talented mixologist Tata and Jerry. Despite having many guests Jamal at reception ensured the rooms were well organized and check in was efficient. The later check out was a welcomed bonus the next day. During the day, the limitless breakfast at Alba Terrace and happy hour by the pool was a highlight. The cocktails were almost too good. Again all served with a smile. This hotel is stunning, with an award winning club, bars and restaurant but what really makes this place so special is the staff. Like one big Edition family they always go above and beyond! A big thank you to all the staff. I am so grateful for everything, we can not wait to return. Hopefully for another special weekend, rooftop cocktails and dinner at the Oak Room.
