The Habtoor Grand Resort and Spa was built in 1989 and is the type of establishment that never stops expanding; in 2002,for example, a second high-rise building opened. The 25-floor and 19-floor building are interconnected by a smaller central building and are easily seen at night thanks to their colourful neon lighting. The three separate parts of the Habtoor are named Jumeirah, Abu Dhabi and Dubaï, which makes it easier to find your way around. The central structure is the lowest of the three and houses a low-ceiling reception from which you can access the resort's numerous facilities. Light marble furnishings are omnipresent here, and on the rooftop terrace (directly on top of the reception area), guests can enjoy the long infinity pool that faces the sea (at a distance). Well laid-out, the terrace could be the perfect place to relax, with its superb counter and deckchairs on wooden flooring, if it weren't for the noise from the surrounding construction sites. You will come across numerous bars throughout the hotel: don't miss a visit to the pub, for example, this long tube made of bricks is the perfect place for guests who don't want to miss the game. However, if you want to unwind and get fit, there is a spa with 9 treatment rooms and a large impeccably-kept gym with bay windows and several new machines.
Outside, you will find a large-sized relaxation area with a lagoon swimming pool adorned with palm trees, little wooden bridges, an aquatic bar, little one-floor houses with terraces where you can enjoy the food of the country of your choice, and numerous deckchairs, which are sometimes set out on the lawn. Children and teenagers will have lots of fun on the water slide, with its many twists and turns, that runs through artificial rocks. There is also a lovely indoor and outdoor space for children, surrounded by colourful fences, with plenty of facilities. Great coloured concrete alleys highlight the artificial nature of the place, although it is attractively embellished with a small stream, a lawn and some vegetation, etc... Guests of the 'VIP' club can enjoy their breakfast on the 25th floor, in the spacious, classically decorated and comfortable area that is reserved for them.
