Last August, I received a gift certificate from Eastern Mangroves Suites by Jannah during their monthly promotion. It was for a two night stay in their two bedroom suite. I availed this voucher exactly a year later. I know, I know ... it took me one year to decide. But I'm the kind of person who keeps things until the last minute ... the greatest procrastinator the world has ever known! But you know what, something good did come out of it. Last year, I didn't have a blog and this year I do. So now, I can atleast share my experience with you.
This wasn't the first time I stayed at Jannah. However, it was the first time that I would be staying for two days in a row. That meant, double the fun and double the relaxation.
Eastern Mangroves Suites by Jannah is located in the protected area of Abu Dhabi's Eastern Mangroves. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, it is an ideal place to have some peace and quiet and yet get in on the action. At the entrance of this luxurious hotel apartment is a lovely little fountain surrounded by numerous palm trees. Once we entered, we found ourselves right under a long, majestic chandelier and immediately headed towards the check it desk. Check in was quick and soon enough we were escorted to our room by a wonderful "Karim". Eastern Mangroves Suites by Jannah do not have bellboy, and offer a more personalized and luxurious "Karim" service. Their Karims are trained to help you out in any way that you want - from unpacking your suitcase to even arranging a candlelight dinner for you in your balcony. Even though we just had one bag, our Karim insisted that he'll help us carry it to our room.
We got a little tour of the room as well by our Karim. I was just as impressed this time as I was the last time we stayed here. Since it was a two bedroom suite, I even got my brother along to spend the weekend with us. Near the entrance was a fully equipped kitchen with an oven, fridge, cooker and dishwasher. From the kitchen, we could see the huge living room with plush sofas and a TV. The living room which was decorated in soft tones had a little balcony with garden furniture and had the most beautiful view of the mangroves.
This two bedroom apartment is ideal for families with kids. The rooms are massive. The master bedroom had a king size bed and a balcony as well as an attached bathroom. These stylish bathrooms are well equipped with all the necessary toiletries that includes bathrobes, toothbrushes, vanity kits, etc. They even had a bathtub and a rain shower. The only difference in both the bedrooms was that one of them had twin beds and it didn't have a bathtub. Both the rooms had a safe as well as a TV. So, you could just relax on your bed, watch a movie and go to sleep! In addition to the two bathrooms, there's also a little guest toilet near the entrance.
Eastern Mangroves Suites by Jannah do not have any restaurants of their own. However, they are tied up with Eastern Mangroves Promenade that offer a number of dining options. You can choose from a variety of restaurants serving Italian, Indian. American, Arabic and other cuisines of the world. Besides these restaurants, there's a supermarket too. So, you can just pick up groceries from Waitrose (the supermarket) and possibly make your own meal.
The hotel also offers a fully equipped gym and a stunning rooftop pool. We did not use the gym. However, we did visit the pool. While the guys took a nice dip, I just lay back on the sun loungers soaking in some sun. For those who prefer a bit more adventure, Jannah also organizes various water activities like donut rides, kayaking, etc. And ladies, if you're looking for some pampering, The Nail Spa and Marquee are there to take care of you.
Overall, I had a fantastic time here. I was impressed with the impeccable service, incredibly comfy beds and squeaky clean rooms. Highly recommended!
