Southern Sun Abu Dhabi

Award-Winning, Guest-Favourite Abu Dhabi Hotel

From cooling off in the 27th floor rooftop pool to dining at one of Abu Dhabi’s most loved steak restaurants and from mini-breaks with maximum-comfort in the Corniche to long-stay luxury in spacious suites, Southern Sun Abu Dhabi invites you to the Emirates capital where bath-warm ocean swims, sandy camel rides, and souk-haggling are as much part of the experience as Louvre exploring, Ferrari racing and flagship-store shopping. 

Discover contemporary design with Arabic elegance, standard-setting guest services, business-first amenities and conference spaces, and famous Abu Dhabi dining in the best-value TripAdvisor Travellers Choice hotel in the city. 

353 rooms starting from the 10th and rising to the 26th floor means sweeping Corniche and city views whether you’ve checked into a 50mExecutive Room or a One Bedroom Suite with it’s serviced-apartment style convenience. Unlimited free WiFi, degree-perfect air-conditioning, early ‘til late room service and modern design – all of Southern Sun Abu Dhabi’s accommodation choices promise total comfort with luxury touches. 

Dining and Southern Sun Abu Dhabi are a famous pairing on the Abu Dhabi culinary scene. From Friday Brunch where all-you-can-eat gets a fine-dining makeover to award-winning steaks and ocean-fresh oysters and from laid back big-screen sports and nightly promotions to the mezze and madras, shish and sushi menu of authentically prepared global specialties.  

Formula 1 to falconry, reverential Grand Mosque tours to dune-bashing in the Empty Quarter, and from cashmere and couture shopping to date and honey tasting, Abu Dhabi is a celebration of some of the world’s oldest traditions with some of the newest innovations. Explore it in comfort from a location minutes from the Corniche beach. 

A designated 24-hour business centre, six adaptable event spaces and complimentary valet parking ensure business visitors can work and meet without interruption. The fitness centre with gym, sauna and steam rooms and concierge team ready to arrange tours and taxis, promise a leisurely Abu Dhabi stay.
