Interconnecting rooms are available on every floor, with connecting doors from the corridors to provide additional privacy.
The luxurious Royal Mangroves Residence, touted as the largest VIP suite in Abu Dhabi, offers a lavish but residential feel with room configurations of three to seven en-suite guest rooms that can be modified depending on guests’ requirements. The Residence also features a rooftop terrace overlooking the mangroves, a 33-foot swimming pool, a rooftop BBQ entertaining area, a private gym and a dedicated private entrance. Guests will also have access to a private limousine service, chef, butler, massage therapist, and beauty therapist during their stay.
The Anantara Spa at Eastern Mangroves will be home to the largest traditional Arabic Hammam in Abu Dhabi, totaling an impressive 1,420 square feet. The exclusive spa will also feature ten treatment rooms and separate lobbies and check-in areas for men and women.
