A Well Spent Overnight

After all these hectic schedules and tiring rota. Still, I was able to manage to visit my Aunt's Wedding Anniversary.

This is my first time to splurge overnight from a 5 Star Property.
I'm talking about the hotel that I stayed for the entire night. 

It's the Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan Situated just across the Emirates Palace.
For those who are not familiar with the location. Here's the address;

Corniche Road West, Opposite Emirate Palace - Abu Dhabi

Still confused? Better ask the Taxi Driver to bring you to the Hotel. Don't forget to mention the complete name :)

The Main Entrance of the Hotel

After work, We take a dinner and go straight to the hotel for some celebration.

It was 8 in the evening, Thursday night so it was a rush hour and it's a little bit traffic.
We  arrived at the hotel around 8:30

According to their website. The hotel is very accessible to the biggest shopping centers, museums, and many other leisure destinations. 

For the eta. Please find it below as per their website

  • 5 minutes drive the Marina Mall
  • 10 minutes drive the Khalidiyah Mall
  • 15 minutes drive the Al Wahda Mall
  • 20 minutes drive the Abu Dhabi Mall

I couldn't appreciate the view of the hotel.
For some reasons, the view of our room is currently situated beneath the left side wing.

It's pretty eye-soar as well cause the dust makes the windows a little blurry. Nevertheless, i can still see the view of the sea. (A little bit)

Hello, World :)


My aunt has her own car so we're able to get access to the parking lot.
In order for you to get access from these. The hotel is providing a Secure Card.

Though, this is my first time.I was amazed how they implement these for everyone in the hotel.
From the door entrance at the basement, riding on the lift and of course, opening your room.
You have your own access card.

It's very convenient and secured! Thumbs Up!

How Many Floors?

I forgot! Haha :D Actually, We're on the 21st floor. And I can feel some ear pressure. 

The view from the 21st is VERY ASTONISHING. Trust me.

The Lobby...

First impressions, Last. Yes, no doubt.  I think all complimenting adjective is okay. :)

The room that we had was good for a family. I did not ask my aunt what type of room it was but one thing for sure. It's Very spacious, cozy comes with a small kitchen, living room (it's like an apartment), two washroom and two big rooms that 10 people can sleep.

Trust me. It's worth the price you pay.

The Amenities...

Well, they provide linens, towels, and bathrobes with a touch of Arabian way. :)

And they do provide an organic soap, which smells good.



One thing that I loved the most was their Facilities.
One of these is the BEACH CLUB.

And it comes with different pools ranging from kids to adults. 
Kindly check it below

Beach Front
The Beach Club offers 200 meters of pristine beach for everyone to enjoy. Relaxing and refreshing sea breeze over a nicely stretched beach along the hotel’s front area right after the pool area.

and for the Kids...

Kids Pool
Kids can have fun in our temperature controlled kids pool; it’s also shaded so your young ones can have lots of fun. Specially dedicated low depth pool for the children, totally shaded, where kids can enjoy a sun-free environment, located right beside the adult pool.
Relax and let our trained staff take care of your children whilst ensuring their safety and enjoyment.

That is what stated on their website. And I can say that it is really refreshing especially on the beachfront. The breeze of the wind, laying down while sipping some pina-colada. And listening to the cool breeze...Cool Hugh? Of course. Life is too short so make it the most :)
