INVITED REVIEW: Family time in Andalus Al Seef Resort & Spa

Andalus Al Seef Resort & Spa is located in Ministries Complex area just right after Al Seef Village Mall in Abu Dhabi. Andalus just recently opened and celebrated their 1 year this March. Its concept is entirely different from a usual resort, when you will normally think of a pool and beach only and it’s not. You’ll find out why.


They have a spacious lounge area on the reception and mostly in white interior and while checking-in you’ll be offered an arabic coffee called qahwah (Emirates ID for UAE residents and passports for tourists needed to check-in).

The types of room they have here ranges from a Studio, 1 bedroom suite, 2 bedroom suite to 3 bedroom suite. They are categorized by blocked alphabetically.

This place is like a small community. Why? Because once you stepped right in after the reception area, you’ll see the restaurants, cafes, spa, salon, gym (separate for men & women wherein there’s water, face towels, changing room and toilet inside), lawned area and the pool within these low rise buildings. There is a direct access to the mall/parking as well. You’ll see children freely and safely playing around and passing by these restaurants and cafe where people enjoying each others company with a cup of coffee, people coming from the mall to ran some errands and so on and so forth. So everything is within your reach while you’re getting the “feel at home” type of stay with them.


We got the 1 bedroom suite on which the kitchen is fully furnished and fully equipped so you can do your home cooked meals. Yes! You don’t have to mind going to the restaurants but you can cook your favourite meal. A complimentary tea/coffee facility is also provided. I enjoyed having our cup of tea (chai) on our usual way of making it for breakfast and made some Mac and Cheese and Korean noodles too. So comfortable and convenient that’s why it’s a “feel at home” place for us.


The living room is having a very relaxing sofa set with big soft throw pillows. Watching our favourite hindi movies while munching some snacks was one of my favourite scenes! You’ll find several brochures also of the restaurants from the mall that offers food delivery on the table below the TV. Several electric outlets are almost everywhere in the entire unit.


A separate washroom is available in this area which is  next to the kitchen. The balcony is very spacious! The dining table is shaded with a tent cover and two beach chairs just in case you wanna do some sunbathing from there. The pool is so viewable from the balcony. And from the bedroom you can directly go to the balcony also. It’s a King size bed with very soft pillows with the elephant and rabbit (made by folded towels) placed on top of the bed. In the cupboard you’ll find safe deposit box, bathrobes and hangers. It has an attached bathroom with necessary toiletries (toothbrush, shaving kit and slippers are upon request dial 0). I only find the light in the bathroom very dim (yellow light) I can’t see myself properly.

We had a 2 night stay in this amazing place and I can say it’s a must on your list! On the 2nd day, we went to Happiness Island for a brunch. All guests have complimentary access to this island. Our full story can be read here: INVITED REVIEW: Fun sunny day in Happiness Island


Around 4pm of the same day, we went for a swim. Hamza found he’s perfect swimming area wherein we don’t need to hold of him much. So he enjoyed plunging and attempted to float by himself. The pool is guarded with some lifeguards and towels are available to use from there.



On our 3rd day, it was a home alone for me and Hamza. Hubby went for work so I made myself busy by cooking some Mac and Cheese! After that we went down for a little stroll for the last time before going home. I sat outside the San Francisco Cafe and ordered a cappuccino. You’ll get to see their staffs walking or by the club car around the area. Keeping and maintaining the place for their valuable guests.

The time has come that we have to leave. Srikanth (one of the Alonso –  well connected and up to date with everything in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, and are available to assist you at any time of the day. You may read in details here on what services they can provide you) was there again to help us with our stuffs. It’s truly remarkable and wonderful new experience for us. A stay that’s definitely worth to share to everyone.

  10. A family is the most important place for any individual and it is considered as the root of people. Without a family, one cannot have a decent and happy life. basically, we are 4 members altogether. They are – My husband my two boys and me. I am lucky to have such a family.
    My family is important to me for different reasons. First of all, it is the place where I belong to. Literally, at the end of the day, I cannot think that I am living without my family. I am highly grateful to my husband for his unconditional supports and love.I am happy with my two Boys and cannot imagine my life without them. My family is my life and thus it is most important for me than any other thing.

    I would love to spend some quality time with my Family. Hope you will grant my wish dear
