EDITION Hotels brings its signature, iconic style to the UAE with the opening of The Abu Dhabi EDITION, an exclusive waterfront oasis spearheading a new movement in the city that never stands still. The first EDITION to open in the Middle East, Abu Dhabi is a ground-breaking hotel concept brought to life by Ian Schrager, the visionary behind contemporary luxury as we know it, in collaboration with Marriott International.
A single, iconic gem located on a prime site on the Al Bateen peninsula, 20 minutes from The Louvre Abu Dhabi and the beaches of Saadiyat, and just 35 minutes from Yas Island, the property enjoys breath-taking views of the azure waters of the Arabian Gulf and the activity of the buzzing adjacent marina. The hotel offers 198 guest rooms, suites and 57 exclusive residences.
Anticipating the changing needs and desires of the modern traveller, The Abu Dhabi EDITION offers a distinctive, upscale environment, encompassing innovative design whilst respecting and celebrating the lifestyle and traditions of the Emirati culture.
Heightened dining experiences are fundamental to EDITION hotels and The Abu Dhabi EDITION is no exception, with three signature restaurants created by world-renowned chef Tom Aikens, famed for being the youngest chef to ever have been awarded two Michelin stars. Embracing the needs and desires of a new kind of world-traveller that scours the globe for culinary excellence, The Abu Dhabi EDITION is also home to Oak Room, a traditional English oak panelled restaurant, celebrating world-class ingredients with British rock ‘n’ roll flair.
Opposite the entrance to Oak Room, the secluded sophistication of Library Bar awaits. A craft gin-led cocktail bar blended with EDITION classics, Library Bar is the ideal place for guests looking for a quieter more intimate place to socialize.
Over on the Marina side of the hotel, Aikens has created a serene, coastal Mediterranean-style restaurant, Alba Terrace, that transcends day-to-night, offering the finest locally sourced coffee, light lunches and sharing plates to linger over whilst bathing in the natural sunlight that streams into the space through the folding floor-to-ceiling glass doors.
EDITION Spa at The Abu Dhabi EDITION, opening in late 2018, will be the one of the most unique and special elements of the hotel. The spa features separate zones for men and women, consisting of seven treatment rooms including two Hammams, a facial room and couple’s treatment suite.
Reservations are now open with opening rates starting from 750 UAE Dirham ($205), including breakfast*. The hotel will open in preview on 24th October and launch officially on 21st November 2018.
