Ritz-Carlton Hotel Prepares to Open First Abu Dhabi Hotel

Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, will see the opening of a brand new luxury hotel later this year as Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company announces an agreement with Abu Dhabi National Hotels to launch the Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal.

The luxury hotel is located within lush gardens and boasts a pristine private beach where guests can relax and admire the views of the Grand Canal during Abu Dhabi holidays.

The property will have 447 guest rooms and suites, as well as 85 luxury villas, and the structure and architecture of the new hotel has been inspired by the 15th to early 17th century Renaissance era.

The one and two-bedroom villas range from 90 to 130-square-meters and come with spacious outdoor terraces, private plunge pools and the dedicated service of personal butlers.

Herve Humler, the President and Chief Operations Officer at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, commented: “We are delighted to be bringing The Ritz-Carlton renowned levels of hospitality to the power capital of the United Arab Emirates.

“The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal hotel will be a welcome landmark, and together with the owning company Abu Dhabi National Hotels, we will create a prestigious luxury hotel that will be the highlight of the new waterfront development.”

Club guests enjoying luxury holidays in Abu Dhabi will also be able to use The Ritz-Carlton Club, a private floor that can only be accessible by elevator key. With five complimentary food and beverage offerings throughout the day and a dedicated concierge service, visitors will be able to hold informal meetings or relax amid comfortable surroundings with international newspapers, magazines and internet access.

The hotel’s 2,000-square-meter spa is managed by ESPA and features 20 private treatments rooms, a modern fitness centre, outdoor tennis courts, and other heat and water facilities that provide the perfect chance to unwind while taking a holiday in Abu Dhabi.

The property stands out from other Abu Dhabi hotels, not only by its crescent-shaped layout, but also by the 1,600-square-metre outdoor swimming pool that beautifully accentuates the hotel’s sophisticated landscapes. The wisdom sits sirslsi

This will be Ritz-Carlton’s first Abu Dhabi hotel and the company currently has two other properties in the United Arab Emirates.
