An old favourite, the Gulf Hotel is a landmark in the district of Adliya and rightly so. Overlooking Quandaibiya Bay, the lobby of this five-star hotel has one of the most dazzling chandeliers you’ll ever lay your eyes on. Excellent facilities include no less than eight impressive restaurants, two lounges, an English pub, conference and business facilities with a private lounge and two health clubs – one for women and one for men. There’s also a gym and tennis and squash courts in case you over-indulge in the restaurants. This is an excellent choice of hotel if you’re coming with the family or planning a leisurely stay.
