Abu Dhabi Edition Hotel opens in Al Bateen Marina

Marriott International has announced the opening of its first Edition branded hotel in Abu Dhabi. The exclusive brand is made up of just eight luxury boutique hotels and offers "high-octane glamour".

Abu Dhabi Edition is situated on the waterfront in the Al Bateen Marina area in Abu Dhabi. The hotel is the brand’s entry into the Middle East and was due to open to guests last year.

The luxury property has 198 guest rooms and suites, as well as 57 serviced residences. Facilities at the hotel include a lavish spa and multiple gourmet restaurants, including three that are fronted by Michelin-starred chef Tom Aikens.

Abu Dhabi Edition has a lattice-style shell façade that represents the lateen sails of a traditional dhow boat, which are historically linked to the region. The hotel boasts a five-storey lobby and a lounge area that features a kinetic art installation.

Guests can savour delicious cuisine at a number of dining venues with international menus. The Market is a "healthy lifestyle restaurant" with organic coffee and raw juices; the Oak Room is a "traditional English oak-panelled restaurant";  "Mediterranean-style" Alba Terrace overlooks the marina. The Annex is split over three levels and is a mixed dining venue and bar with live DJs and entertainment on the ground floor.

During their stay, guests have access to two swimming pools, a modern fitness centre, and a spa with seven treatment rooms. The property also boasts more than 900 square meters of meeting and event space, including meeting rooms, ballrooms and boardrooms.

Guest rooms feature oak flooring, wood panelling, photography by Brett Weston, and spacious marble bathrooms. Guests staying in the residences can access the separate six-storey residences building via a "sky bridge" that is connected to the main hotel.

The hotel is located close to the city’s diverse attractions. These include Yas Island, The Louvre Abu Dhabi, Marina Mall, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Al Wathba, Wetland Reserve, and the Abu Dhabi City Golf Club.

The Edition brand was established by the American hotelier Ian Schrager. The brand has hotels in global locations including London, New York, Shanghai and Miami Beach.
