Guests of all faiths are entranced by the smooth lines of cool, white marble, intricately weaved carpets, elegant arches and accents of gold at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. The third-largest mosque in the world, it features 82 domes and is the primary place of worship for local community. As the Grand Mosque is located near the hotel, guests can choose to walk or take a complimentary luxury shuttle departing hourly from the hotel lobby.
