With 374 rooms, including 61 luxury suites and 42 club rooms, the five-star hotel fuses contemporary styling with classic Arabian and European design. Divided into four categories – Junior, Executive, Amiri, and Grand Amiri – each suite gives a sense of warm Arabian hospitality with elegantly handcrafted furniture, floor-to-ceiling windows, and brightly hued tapestries.
The Presidential Suite is the largest and most luxurious suite with a spacious bedroom, walk-in wardrobe, and adjoining spa bathroom featuring a Jacuzzi bathtub. Additional accommodation includes a dining room, separate study, and living room. Guests in the Presidential Suite can arrange a personalised visit from the chef to customise the menu.
