During my visit to Abu Dhabi I stayed at two well known and luxurious hotels. One of them was the Hyatt Capital Gate Abu Dhabi which is known to be the hotel that leans at 18 degrees and holds a World Guinness Record. I couldn’t pass the opportunity to stay at this hotel during my visit. I stayed there for a total of three nights, and I enjoyed my stay. Though I could have maximize certain aspects of it that I didn’t take much advantage of and one of them was using the pool of the hotel.
One of my favorite amenities of a luxurious hotel are the pools. They tend to be unique in architecture and overall presentation. The Hyatt Capital Gate Abu Dhabi had a simple yet a great design, nothing over the top yet done right that attracts the guest to take a dip into the pool and relax. The pool can be found within the Spa section of the property, once off the elevators – take a sharp left and then another left and it will take you straight to the pool. Keep in mind to enter the pool area you will need your room key for access, so keep that on you at all times. The pool is open until 10:00pm everyday.

At the time while I was visiting the pool it was around 9:00 in the morning and the temperature was rising in Abu Dhabi, nearly to the 40 degree celsius, so the start of a blooming hot day in Abu Dhabi was commencing. The pool area of the hotel is kept in great condition, everything seemed to be very well organized and clean. Staff members of the hotel are constantly walking around making sure everything is in order and fixing things up if something seems to be off or out of place. The view of the pool area of Abu Dhabi was lovely, though a little dusty at the time.

As I mentioned, the pool area had a simple design though everything was very well organized to the point that if it ever gets crowded you wouldn’t feel people right on top of you. They offer plenty of sitting available within the pool area and a few recliner chairs as well. Within those recliner chairs you will also find an umbrella in which they can open up to give you some shade during your time at the pool, those umbrellas will come in handy for shade as it gets really really hot. The towels can be found within the spa so you can grab yours as you make your way out to the pool. The refreshment area of the pool seemed to be close when I first arrived but they have an area where you can get drinks, etc.

Hyatt Capital Gate Abu Dhabi Pool – Bottom line
The pool at the Hyatt Capital Gate was a great facility. There was nothing that I thought they could do better on or improve. The installations are unique, comfortable and the pool is simply beautiful. They have a shallow side and a deep side, just like every pool but diving isn’t allowed within the pool. At night time, the pool has a great LED lighting that makes the pool glow and I found that to be just unique. I didn’t see lifeguards on duty for the parents bringing their kids into the pool, keep an eye on them at all times for their own safety. To be expected, there is nothing to worry about on the temperature of the pool as it’s pretty warm due to the weather conditions in Abu Dhabi.
The Hyatt Capital Gate gets my thumbs up for a great installation and overall set up.
