The main pool area is stylish, spacious and boasts ample lounging facilities for those wishing to rest and recharge between swims. The fitness centre offers a steam room, sauna and relaxation areas. Tennis courts are also available for the more energetic. A palm-lined avenue leads up to the main hotel building and inside, the feeling of grandeur continues with a vast and dazzling atrium lobby that oozes elegance and opulence. Fastidious attention to detail and design is evident in each of the 250 guest rooms and suites, exuding a real sense of Arabian culture, art and history. The hotel’s four restaurants, Al Marjan, serving authentic French cuisine; China Mood showcasing delectable Asian dishes; Beach Pavilion specialising in seafood; and finally Al Khiran, an international all day dining venue, offer something to suit every taste and mood.
