Abu Dhabi: nexus of international air travel, global business hub, upscale shopping haven. Novotel Abu Dhabi Al Bustan puts you in the heart of the buzzing, cosmopolitan capital of the United Arab Emirates.
The hotel is only 20 minutes by car from Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) and just five minutes from Al Bateen Executive Airport. Business guests are a five-minute drive from trade fairs and conferences at the vast Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC). The ultramodern stadium and sports facilities at Zayed Sports City are also just five minutes from the hotel.
When you’re ready to take a time-out from business, Abu Dhabi offers an array of tantalizing attractions. Shopping temples like Abu Dhabi Mall, Yas Mall and Marina Mall offer a vast selection of fashion and lifestyle stores along with dining and entertainment choices. At Mushrif Mall, just five minutes from Novotel Abu Dhabi Al Bustan, you’ll find over 200 shops and a variety of food outlets. Immerse yourself in the colours and scents of the city’s bustling souks where you can bargain for anything from spices to carpets and jewellery.
Abu Dhabi also astounds with architectural marvels, starting with the vast Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, just 15 minutes from Novotel Abu Dhabi Al Bustan, with 82 domes and room for 40,000 worshippers. Spectacular skyscrapers like the five curved Etihad Towers or the gravity-defying Capital Gate define the city skyline and offer superb views over the Gulf from their summits. The stunning Louvre Abu Dhabi, topped by a shallow dome, is home to a collection spanning prehistoric artifacts to contemporary artworks.
Lovers of speed can take a look behind the scenes at the Yas Marina Circuit, home to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Formula 1 race, and even take a spin around the circuit. The Ferrari World theme park, covered by a vast Ferrari-inspired red roof, will thrill you with a plethora of motor racing memorabilia and rides. Perhaps the most thrilling of all, the Formula Rossa roller coaster reaches a hair-raising top speed of 250 kmh.
Take a stroll along the water’s edge at the Corniche, where you can gaze at the city skyline and out across the Gulf from the long, manicured waterfront. You’ll find pathways, kids’ play areas and the sandy, lifeguard-patrolled Corniche Beach, which also offers a separate women-only area. The waterfront promenade is lined with restaurants and cafés. Saadiyat and Yas public beaches are superb spots for a dip. The Emirate’s waters also offer plenty of sporting opportunities from wakeboarding and parasailing to kayaking or scuba diving.
