Starwood bets on Abu Dhabi holidays with second St Regis hotel

Extending its development pipeline in the Arabian Gulf with the recent announcement of a planned second St. Regis hotel in the capital of the United Arab Emirates, Starwood Hotels & Resorts seems to be betting strongly on the flourishing Abu Dhabi holidays market. Owned by International Capital Trading (ICT), the new St. Regis Abu Dhabi will be located on the panoramic Abu Dhabi waterfront offering extensive views over the Gulf's glistening azure waters in an ideal and convenient location for luxury holidays and business breaks, as it will be both central to the business district and sitting directly on the beautiful Corniche seaside strip. Furthermore, it will also be located just a short drive from the recently opened F1 circuit, Ferrari museum, Gary Player-designed golf course and the Louvre, Guggenheim and Maritime museums, The St. Regis Abu Dhabi will provide guests an entrance into a captivating world of opulence offering a unique expression of its location.

Situated right by the Corniche seawall promenade in downtown Abu Dhabi the new St Regis Abu Dhabi will be part of Nation Towers, the iconic two-tower mixed-use development. It will be located at the top of one tower starting at the 33rd floor and extending over 281 luxuriously appointed guest rooms, including 56 suites, the accomodation will provide sumptuous stays on luxury holidays to Abu Dhabi. Furthermore, the hotel will also comprise a number of signature restaurants, a destination bar, sky bridge restaurant, more than 4,800 square metres of ultra modern meeting and event space and over 3,000 square metres of dedicated health club facilities, including an outdoor swimming pool. Guests will also enjoy a beach club adjacent to the hotel, which will be operated by Starwood.

"We are proud to increase St. Regis' presence in the Middle East with the signing of The St. Regis Abu Dhabi, offering the iconic luxury, unmatched privilege and bespoke services for which the St. Regis brand is renowned. Truly one of the Gulf Region's most desirable destinations, Abu Dhabi offers our guests a unique mix of world-class cultural institutions, year-round recreation opportunities, specialty shopping, and cuisine at one of the best addresses in the world." - declared Paul James, Global Brand Leader of St. Regis and The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts.

"The announcement of our second St. Regis in Abu Dhabi is another sign of Starwood's commitment to developing all nine of its brands in key Middle Eastern destinations," - commented Roeland Vos, President of Starwood Hotels & Resorts in Europe, Africa and Middle East. And speaking about the profitable and booming market for luxury holidays in the UAE he added - "We are honored to partner with ICT as we build on our existing footprint in Abu Dhabi with this prestigious addition to our portfolio of luxury hotels in the Middle East."

Also speaking on behalf of ICT, Mr. Hamad Abdulla Al Shamsi, Chief Executive Officer of ICT said, "ICT is proud to partner with Starwood on this flagship development Nation Towers on the Corniche of Abu Dhabi. The signing marks another milestone for ICT who announced last year the award of the construction contract for the project. The combination of ICT's prime location Nation Towers development together with the world class St. Regis brand will provide arguably a unique luxury hospitality experience in Abu Dhabi."

In-keeping with the tradition set by the St. Regis brand's legendary landmark New York hotel, the same will be replicated for Abu Dhabi holidays in this new hotel as The St. Regis Abu Dhabi will also boast the famed hallmarks of St. Regis hotels including the iconic St. Regis Butler Service, featuring bespoke guest experiences and luxury accommodations tailored to global travellers. Trained in the English tradition, St. Regis butlers provide ever-present, yet unobtrusive service while anticipating guest needs and customising each guest's stay according to his or her specific tastes and preferences for truly unsurpassable Abu Dhabi holidays.
