Refresh and Re-energise
Perched on the pristine shores of the Arabian Gulf, Novotel Al Dana Resort is the perfect family getaway to relax and unwind.
The 166-unit property with traditional Arabic-style architecture comprises king and twin rooms as well as 37 suites, and has gained a reputation for excellent family-friendly service since it opened in 2003.
All rooms provide tea and coffee-making facilities, a minibar and satellite TV, while the suites have fridges, microwaves and a kid’s playroom as well.
Guests and visitors can choose from two outstanding restaurants to tickle the taste buds is Zytoun, which offers international cuisine with an Arabic twist, and La Perle, a fantastic seafood eatery overlooking the soothing waters. This restaurant has a fish market concept where you can choose your catch fresh and have it prepared to your liking.
Both venues have an Arabic brunch on Fridays and a daily business lunch special. The all-you-can-eat seafood buffet at La Perle is priced just at BD16. Thanks to Novotel’s child-friendly policy, little ones below four years eat free.
There’s also the Bellevue Bar which offers a relaxing atmosphere and great views of the sea and the city skyline, as well as the pool bar where guests can enjoy a selection of snacks throughout the day.
One of the resort’s most popular areas is the private sandy beach where guests can take out kayaks or paddle boats and join in activities such as beach volleyball or just relax, enjoy a drink with a snack and unwind. The beach patio has recently been refurbished making it an ideal place for socializing in the evenings.
Other facilities at the hotel include gyms, a spa with massage therapy rooms, a sauna and indoor and outdoor Jacuzzis. There is also an independent hair salon on-site to help prepare for that all-important meeting or date.
Business travelers can make use of the meeting and conference rooms, which can accommodate from 30 to 110 people and guests can sign up for Novotel’s loyalty scheme, which is accessible from the first stay and provides attractive benefits.
