Inspired by the city’s modern Arabic aesthetic, the 34-storey glass tower will house 200 bedrooms and 1,918sqm of meeting space, catering for groups of up to 530. In total, there will be two ballrooms and five smaller rooms. Groups can book restaurant-style catering, designed by the hotel’s executive chef.

"The first impression our guests will have is of this stunning new hotel and all the services and amenities we offer at Four Seasons Hotel Abu Dhabi," said the hotel's general manager, Sam Ioannidis. "But the lasting impression will be of the unique experience of staying with us at Four Seasons."
