Marriott opens first Ritz-Carlton-branded property in Abu Dhabi
Marriott International Inc. has announced the opening of a new property called The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal, in Abu Dhabi, which is Ritz-Carlton's first property in Abu Dhabi and the ninth property in the Middle East.
Located at the waterfront, the new hotel's design takes inspiration from the 15th to early 17th century Renaissance architecture and urban planning of the city of Venice.
Consisting of 10 stately buildings arranged in a crescent formation, the new hotel overlooks the 1,600 square metre pool. Created at the backdrop of the majestic Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, the property features 447 luxurious guestrooms and suites, in addition to 85 private one- and two-bedroom villas.
Sprawling over 57-acres of land with beautifully manicured lawns, unique water features, and private beaches, the Venetian-designed Ritz-Carlton features spacious outdoor terraces, exclusive lounge boasting panoramic views of the property, canal and the city skyline. The 1,550 square metres Roma Ballroom can accommodate up to 900 guests and is divisible in three. It also features an exclusive elevator directly from the private Bridal Suite into the venue.
The hotel is adorned with two expansive marble foyers with natural daylight, 14 additional meeting rooms, and a traditional majlis ("a place of sitting” in Arabic).
The gastronomic options of the hotel includes three signature restaurants named as Li Jiang, Mijana and the 358-seat Giornotte, created by award-winning Japanese designer Super Potato. Additionally, it features café, lobby bar, pool restaurant and two pool bars.
The other leisure facilities of the hotel include a 1,600 square metre outdoor pool, which is one of the largest in UAE, a fully-equipped health club, and kids club.
