A stylish urban retreat on a private beach sharing facilities with sister Shangri-La hotel.

Part of the expansive Qaryat Al Beri complex and the Shangri-La group, Traders is a contemporary hotel. The hotel’s private beachfront is home to plush cabanas that fringe one of Abu Dhabi’s many canals. The urban-chic Afyä restaurant and bar serves a variety of international buffet and à la carte meals.

As well as a fitness centre and outdoor swimming pool on site, there's the fantastic CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La, at the neighbouring Shangri-La Hotel Qaryat Al Beri (at extra cost). The cuisine here is international, meaning all guests are catered for. If you wish for a change of scene, reserve a table at one of the restaurants at Shangri-La Hotel Qaryat Al Beri (payable locally).

The rooms have views of the canal or the city with Superior Rooms generously sized and Deluxe Rooms providing additional living space. If you choose a Traders Superior Room, you'll have free access to the exclusive Traders Club Lounge with benefits including express check-in/out, a range of complimentary refreshments throughout the day and cocktails in the evenings.
