Want to look out over Abu Dhabi’s historic Al Maqta area? No problem: The suite has panoramic views. Want privacy? Check. It takes up the full top floor of one of the luxury hotel’s Venetian-inspired buildings. Even better, the 2,700-square-foot suite also has an adjacent security room (making it ideal for VIPs and government travelers), butler quarters, two bedrooms, and living and dining rooms. The dining area can accommodate up to 10 guests and connects to a kitchenette for easy meals.

The master bedroom’s balcony overlooks the hotel’s gardens and a sandy beach. And then there’s the bathroom: It has a color therapy rain shower combining water, color and light features for the ultimate relaxation experience.

If the Royal Suite isn’t available, guests at the 57-acre waterfront luxury hotel can also book one of the private villas or Ritz-Carlton Suites.
