One of the tallest buildings in the city of Abu Dhabi, Jumeirah at Etihad Towers is a luxury hotel with a charming ambiance. There are five towers in total that are residences and offices, in addition to a private beach, swimming pool, gym, and spa. This luxury hotel in Abu Dhabi has it all you think.
But, it is also home to a famous Abu Dhabi attraction; Observation Deck at 300. This is literally the highest you can go up in Abu Dhabi. The 74th floor of the Etihad Towers Observation Deck shows 360-degree views of Abu Dhabi that can never be viewed elsewhere. There are discounts for this attraction if you are staying at the hotel depending on your room, but the normal price for Jumeirah at Etihad Towers Observation Deck ticket is about AED 95 that you may get at a slight discount here.
I would recommend heading there for the entire city view if you are new to Abu Dhabi or are just visiting Abu Dhabi for a holiday. Also, don’t forget to read this in-depth guide to Abu Dhabi for first-timers which features a lot of unusual things to do!
Staying at the hotel:
We checked in on a Friday afternoon in a beautiful and expansive lobby with floor to ceiling glass windows that make you feel like you’re in a crystal ball.
After which, we were taken to the 57th floor to a sea view room. The view is nothing short of spectacular. I could see many of the buildings in Abu Dhabi that I had just seen when driving by. The team went beyond our expectations and left a bowl of fruit and some cookies (VaKaVa) from the restaurant downstairs.
We stayed in room 5706, this side of the rooms have the city AND sea view. Don’t forget to get a shot of the Emirates Palace while you are waiting for the elevator, the view is nothing but spectacular.

Jumeirah at Etihad Towers Restaurants
Jumeirah at Etihad Tower has a range of dining options that cater to all kinds of palates; Rosewater, Li Beirut, BiCE, VaKaVa, Ray’s Grill, Tori No Su, Nahaam, and the lobby lounge.
Rosewater is a gorgeous restaurant that served us breakfast. The buffet covers a large area and suits all dietary requirements. I even found a section for gluten-free food!
I found the service very friendly, the manager stopped at each table to ask about the guests’ experiences and if they required anything. The highlight for me was the bread section! It’s a full shelf of carbs of all kinds! The first thought that came to my mind was to have something like this installed at my place! I could just stand and look and taste the pastries all day, but alas, there was other food too and breakfast timings are only from 6.30 am until 11 am.
We dined there from 8.30 to 9 am and found the restaurant a bit empty. The crowds started gathering a little after 9 am so if you are looking for peace and quiet, get there early. We had a whole area to ourselves which had a beautiful view of the pool.
We visited Le Beirut for dinner, which again has great service! We found this overall at Jumeirah at Etihad Towers. The servers really know their menu so trust them to choose your dishes for you. We had Muhammara, Chargrilled Chicken Wings, and Kunafa wrapped Tiger Prawns for starters.
For the main course, we chose a baby chicken breast stuffed with halloumi and tomato burghul from the Chef specials and ordered the most recommended by our server; Shishlik Kebab. This was definitely the star of the evening with delicious and oh so tender meat. The perfect choice for meat and bbq lovers.
Although they don’t have a menu for kids. Our server brought out a plastic plate with a spoon and fork for our child to have his meal. They also helped my little one with some curd and vermicelli rice which I thought was very thoughtful of them
Final thoughts on our staycation in Abu Dhabi:
Jumeirah At Etihad Towers address is easily found on Google Maps and is located right opposite the popular Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi. Other than the location, service, food, and housing the popular Observation Deck at 300, the hotel also gets a nod from us in terms of its pricing.
Most of the prices are affordable during off-peak seasons in the country (btw, to know more about choosing the right season to visit, click here) and the panoramic views are unbeatable! Click here to view their current prices.
