Its 351 Sea View Classic Rooms together with Luxury Suites as well as Seafront and Beachfront Private Villas, seamlessly fusing modern luxury with elegant touches, highlighting the local culture, provide all the convenience and comfort you might ever desire. Each of them is sea-facing, complete with a spacious balcony or terrace, featuring day beds, allowing you to enjoy yourself on a relaxed morning, cup of coffee in hand.
Six dining destinations are inspired by the surrounding mountain-, desert-, and seascapes. Menus are fusing UAE traditions with modern food trends. The Lounge and Lobby Bars offer innovative cocktails, and whiskeys from around the world. The selection of cakes and pastries is meant to satiate your sweet tooth or adorn the teas available.
To the soundtrack of a relaxing DJ beat, ShaSha serves al fresco bites, frozen cocktails, and sweeping ocean views in a private poolside setting. Later in the afternoon, you can enjoy a shisha pipe or take a front seat to enjoy a nature’s spectacular sunset show.
Spa InterContinental combines Eastern and Western treatments & techniques to promote the concept of ‘a healthy mind in a healthy body’.
