Ritz-Carlton Signs Hotel in Abu Dhabi


Ritz-Carlton has expanded its portfolio of hotels in the Middle East, following the signing of an agreement with Abu Dhabi National Hotels (ADNH) to operate a waterfront hotel in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates.

Set amidst landscaped gardens with its own private beach overlooking the Grand Canal, the hotel is expected to open in late 2011.

Designed by Otak International, The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal will feature 447 guestrooms and suites, as well as 85 villas.

Inspired by the 15th to early 17th century Renaissance architecture and the urban planning of the city of Venice, The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi consists of ten buildings arranged in a crescent formation, complete with artfully designed water features throughout the 220,000 square meter (54 acre) property.

A key highlight of The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi is the one and two-bedroom villas, each ranging from size of 90 to 130 square meters (968 to 1,400 square feet,) and complete with spacious outdoor terraces and personalized butler service.

The hotel will also feature The Ritz-Carlton Club, a private floor accessible only by elevator key and offering five complimentary food and beverage presentations throughout the day, as well as a dedicated concierge service.

The hotel’s all-day dining Italian restaurant features an outdoor terrace overlooking the gardens; the steak and seafood restaurant offers specialty cuisine in a stylish setting; the Middle East restaurant showcases the very best in the region’s cooking, and, the Asian restaurant will whet the appetites for all things spicy, authentic and Oriental.

For those who enjoy a more casually experience, there is a rooftop terrace, two poolside bars, and a Lobby Lounge and bar, all of which offer guests a wide selection of drinks and bite-sized meals.

The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi provides 2,040 square meters (22,000 square foot) of flexible space, including an 1,500-square meter (16,145 square foot) ballroom that is divisible by three, along with an additional 11 meeting rooms.

Managed by ESPA, the 2,000 square meter (21,500 square foot) spa with its own separate entrance, will offer 20 private treatment rooms as well as a fully-equipped fitness centre, outdoor tennis courts, and other heat and water experiences. A major scene-stealer will be the massive 1,600 square meter (17,222 square foot) outdoor swimming pool that accentuates the landscape of the hotel.

The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal will be the company’s third hotel in the United Arab Emirates.
