Marriott Hotel Al Forsan to open to guests in Abu Dhabi in February

Marriott International will add another hotel to its portfolio in the United Arab Emirate, with the opening of its second property in Abu Dhabi. The Marriott Hotel Al Forsan has been designed to cater for families and corporate travellers.

Due to open its doors on 16th February, 2017, the hotel has 400 guest rooms and suite spread over five floors. Its location next to the Al Forsan International Sports Resort in Khalifa City makes it a great base for travellers who are planning to enjoy activities including football, horse-riding, polo, water-skiing, wake-boarding and indoor paintballing.

“We are extremely proud to open Marriott Hotel Al Forsan in Abu Dhabi, a property that we believe offers facilities unlike any other resort, not just in the capital but the entire UAE.

“We can’t wait to open our doors and welcome guests to experience a combination of sophisticated design and innovation, as well as delivering an unrivalled hospitality experience in the capital.”

Commented Richard Bleakley, the General Manager of Marriott Hotel Al Forsan.

Bleakley added that he expects the hotel to attract an equal amount of corporate visitors and families who want to enjoy the nearby leisure facilities, and close proximity to Abu Dhabi International Airport. He said that a series of incentive packages that combine stay and activities will be available in the near future.

The guest rooms and suites are spacious, and offer floor-to-ceiling windows and living areas. Modern in-room amenities include air conditioning, wireless internet, flat-screen TVs, coffee and tea makers, minibars, complimentary bottled water, and marble bathrooms with separate shower and bath tubs.

Facilities at the luxury hotel include a 50-metre-long swimming pool with Splash poolside bar, a kids’ area, a modern fitness centre, and a spa with a unique butterfly-design entrance, marble Hammam, and a wide range of lavish therapies. There will also be several dining options serving diverse international culinary delights. These include the large Khayal all-day-restaurant with six sections, the Couture Lounge and The Grill which offers diners views of the open kitchen, and the Appaloosa bar and restaurant.

For casual non-alcoholic drinks, coffees and snacks, there will be a lobby bar with open spaces, comfortable seating and a beautiful blue chandelier. For events and conferences, there’s an onsite ballroom which can be divided into three areas, and boasts spacious terraces that overlooks the football areas and equestrian centre. The Executive Lounge also offers these views and is available to Marriott Rewards Platinum/Gold and Suite guests.
