Set along a marina, the Abu Dhabi Edition is the first from the brand to open in the Middle East and is set on Al Bateen peninsula, 20 minutes from The Louvre Abu Dhabi and the beaches of Saadiyat, and 35 minutes from Yas Island.

The property has three signature restaurants created by world-renowned chef Tom Aikens.

The building also includes a terrace, lounge along with three floors of space in which to socialise including a rooftop garden bar.

For events, the hotel’s forum, a 654 sqm grand ballroom has seating for 450 guests and can be accessed directly from both the hotel and the street.

This private event space also houses a pre-function area with two bridal suites and a Majlis as well as an executive boardroom, meeting rooms and business centre.

The hotel spa opens later this year, with seven treatment rooms including two Hammams, a facial room and couple’s treatment suite.
