Abu Dhabi: Three hotel highlights

The emirate is investing in its hotel infrastructure with new openings. C&IT takes a look at three options for groups.

Four Seasons Abu Dhabi: The emirate’s first Four Seasons hotel is set to open in 2016. Located next to the upmarket Galleria shopping mall on Al Maryah Island, the 34-floor hotel will feature 190 rooms and 54 serviced apartments, 1,290sqm of meeting and conference facilities, a rooftop pool and a 300sqm garden.

Jumeirah Saadiyat Island Resort: Set in a prime location on the north-eastern coast of Saadiyat Island, the Jumeirah Saadiyat Island Resort is expected to be one of the most luxurious five-star resorts in Abu Dhabi. It will offer 294 guest rooms, including spa suites, presidential suites and private high-end villas. Food and beverage outlets will include an all-day dining venue, two signature restaurants, a lobby lounge and bar, a pool and beach bars, retail shops and outdoor beach and pool areas. The architecture, interior design, landscape and master planning will be completed by DBI Design Corporation. The company also designed Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, which is situated on the Corniche and is home to the Observation Deck at 300, Abu Dhabi’s highest public viewpoint. 

Rotana, Saadiyat Island: Saadiyat Island’s luxury hotel offerings will be further enhanced by the five-star Saadiyat Beach Resort, currently under construction on Saadiyat Beach. The resort will comprise 354 rooms and suites, 13 private beach villas, a variety of fine-ding options, a spa and meeting and conference facilities.
