Each of the 491 bespoke guestrooms provide guests with a relaxing sanctuary after a busy day exploring the city or attending to business. The hotel also features 26 boutique suites, such as the TFC Horizon Suite featuring a private plunge pool and terrace offering stunning views of the cityscape.

Guests of The First Collection at Jumeirah Village Circle will have access to the Mediterranean-inspired Soluna Beach Club on the iconic Palm Jumeirah, featuring sun loungers, cabanas, swimming pools and private beach access.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
