Assistant Manager, Concierge

What is your favourite cultural location to visit in the city?
Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.

You had AED 50 to spend on lunch, where would you eat? And what if you had AED 1,000?
For AED 50, Le Boulanger Café. For AED 1,000, Cipriani at Yas Island.

Where is your secret place in Abu Dhabi?
Eastern Mangroves

What kind of experiences can be found there?
At these mangroves you can hire Kayak boats, and observe many different species of bird thriving in their natural habitat. You can also experience the guided Dhow boat ride, and gain knowledge about historical pearl culture in Abu Dhabi. A boat hired for fishing adds more fun in the trip. Alternately after a short distance you can visit the Souq at Qaryat Al Beri and enjoy the dinner with scenic beauty of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.

If you could learn how to create one dish at the hotel’s restaurant, what would it be? 
King of Paella (saffron rice with seafood).

Is there an interesting fact about your hotel that many people don't know?
Hawksbill turtles visit this island every year to lay eggs and if you are lucky, you might spot a dolphin by the beach.

Tell us about a rare and unique experience you have curated for guests in your location?
We organised a private helicopter ride to Sir Bani Yas Island - 180 km (111 miles) by road, 45 minutes by air - where the guest enjoyed a safari ride along the island to see different breeds of wild animal roaming free.  The private lunch at the Resort with his family was much appreciated. The helicopter then flew them back to the Saadiyat Beach Golf Club, where our golf buggies brought them back to the hotel.
