Last weekend we went to Danat Jebel Dhanna Resort in Abu Dhabi’s western region and it was such an amazing experience.
We love this quiet and peaceful atmosphere at this place and the ambience but lets start from the beginning.
When we received the invitation of Danat Jebel Dhanna Resort to check out their new beach chalets and the resort close to Sir Bani Yas in Abu Dhabis Westen region we were directly into it and confirmed. Together with some other bloggers and media people from the UAE we got invited to check out this beautiful place.
We arrived on Friday morning after a 2,5 hours drive from Abu Dhabi city and started directly with a nice breakfast into the day. The selection was wide and I had some fresh made pancakes with berries and a strong coffee. Tim chose an omelette and a croissant with fresh mango juice. After this we went to our room, which was not exactly only room as they took us into a suite overlooking the whole resort. This view was really breath taking. The other guys stayed at the new beach chalets.
After we unpacked our staff we went down to explore the rest of the resort, pool and beach. The beach is just beautiful. If you usually used to swim into Abu Dhabi city beaches you will directly know what we mean. The water is crystal clear and super clean. There are little crabs and beautiful shells all around. The sand is white and its super relaxing.
So as you can guess this place is the perfect spot for water sports such as kayaking, stand up paddling (SUP), windsurfing, snorkeling, fishing, etc.
Tim and me went for stand up paddling and we really have to say that this is the perfect sports to explore the wonderful coast over there. You can spot so many fish trough the blue water and get a nice tan at the same time.
Another thing we definitely have to recommend to you is the snorkeling. It was super cold but super nice! We had a great guide who took us with the boat out of the sea and showed us the coral reef with its stunning animals and underwater world.
We spotted small and big fish and were so surprised by the beauty of the gulf. Tim and me will definitely come back again to Danat Jebel Dhanna Resort when it is a little bit warmer to snorkel again and explore even more of this great place.
Another thing which was super nice was the pool bbq they arrange on Fridays. The bbq selection was great. From prawns and king fish to steak and lamb. Super yummy! Accompanied by a good glass of wine and live music this was the perfect Friday afternoon we spent by water.
In the evening we went to Zaitoun Restaurant. Together with the other bloggers and media peeps we enjoyed great Italian food and wonderful wine in cozy atmosphere.
Anther restaurant/bar we tried was L’atidude. This is a mix out of night club, bar and restaurant. If you are looking for great bar bites and burger, this is the place to be!
With drafted beed and cheese and beef overbaked tortilla chips we started the feast.
After this we went for our main course. Tim went for fish and chips and I ate the cheese and bacon burger. Both was super nice! The portions were really big so I couldn’t finish my burger, but no worries Tim did so for me 😉 hehehehe!
Beside eating enjoyed really the quiet and relaxed atmosphere at Danat Jebel Dhanna Resort. This was also caused by the wonderful back massage we tried. The ladies made us fully relaxed and we were so happy to calm down and chill out after a busy working week.
To sum up. Danat Jebel Dhanna Resort is a beautiful place. Especially for guests who like silence and relaxation. The beach is wonderful as you can go for a long walk in the white sand, grab your SUP board/kayak and paddle around or go for an exciting snorkeling trip. Whatever you will do we are sure you will enjoy it. We will definitely come again in spring or beginning of summer and are looking forward to another nice adventure and staycation outside Abu Dhabi`s city.
Thanks for pampering us so much Danat Jebel Dhanna Resort. We cannot wait to come back very soon!
