Set between the sparkling skyscrapers, bustling wonders of Abu Dhabi and the vast tranquil expanse of Mangrove National Park, Anantara Eastern Mangroves Abu Dhabi Hotel is the gateway from city life to the natural world. With the carefully crafted and customisable Adventure Package, guests at the hotel can explore the scenic beauty of the setting, nestled in the lap of five-star luxury.
Its unique location sets Anantara Eastern Mangroves apart. Near Abu Dhabi’s coastal area, it’s just 15 minutes from the international airport and yet it perches right on the edge of one of the UAE’s most important ecological assets: more than 19 square kilometres of protected coastal mangrove forests.
Under the protection of the EAD (Environment Agency Abu Dhabi), the Mangrove National Park comprises 75% of the total mangrove forested area in the United Arab Emirates. Views from the hotel’s rooftop bar, Impressions, reveal a vast forest of lush, green trees sprawling over the water. At ground level, explorers see those trees’ intricate roots twisting into the channel, plus other fascinating terrains, including salt marshes, mudflats, and algal communities.
Not only beautiful, but the mangroves are also a key ecological asset. They create a natural barrier to protect the city against tidal surges, purify the water and remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Within the lush environment lives an abundance of rare wildlife, including the greater flamingo, western reef heron, mottled crab, turtles, foxes, dugongs and dolphins, as well as hundreds of fish and bird species, making it a hotspot for nature enthusiasts, bird watchers, photographers and visitors looking to escape the bustle of city life.
Anantara Eastern Mangroves Hotel makes exploring this natural wonderland magically memorable with the Mangroves Adventure Package. In addition to luxurious accommodation and a sumptuous buffet breakfast, the package includes a unique adventure into the mangroves. Guests choose from a two-hour guided kayaking tour, a two-hour stand-up paddleboarding session and a one-hour E-Boat excursion to take in the scenic beauty, learn about the importance of the mangroves, and spot some exotic creatures.
Price starting from AED 580 per night.
