The five-star Royal Rose Abu Dhabi hotel is styled after a 17th-century French palace, complete with walls overlaid in intricate gold-leaf designs and accented with ornate chandeliers. The rooms range from doubles and twins to a 230 square-metre Royal suite, and all have TVs and Internet access. A fitness centre, pool and spa are available for guests' enjoyment, and two restaurants and a cafe serve meals and refreshments. The latest addition to Abu Dhabi’s culinary scene, Barocco Restaurant specializes in European cuisine, combining traditional recipes from old times, when slow cooking and earthy ingredients were the standard.
