Four Seasons Hotel Abu Dhabi opens May 2016
Inspired by the city’s modern Arabic aesthetic, Four Seasons Abu Dhabi is housed within a 34-story glass tower which shimmers with a pattern of long vertical “baguettes” in the vibrant colours of textile displays in local souks. A beautiful design detail, they are also among many environmentally advanced, energy-saving features of the all-new building.
“The first impression our guests will have is of this stunning new hotel and all the services and amenities we offer at Four Seasons Hotel Abu Dhabi,” says General Manager Sam Ioannidis of the third Four Seasons location in the UAE and first in its capital. “But the lasting impression will be of the unique experience of staying with us at Four Seasons. Our mission is to provide a thoughtful, personalised experience to each of our guests, whether it’s a productive business trip or a day spent rejuvenating at our spa, a fun-filled family holiday or an enjoyable meal with friends.”
Taking a place of prominence in Abu Dhabi’s ever changing skyline, Four Seasons is the epitome of urban chic and understated luxury for business travellers, families on holiday and residents of Four Seasons Private Residences at Al Maryah Island. Entering through a promenade across water, guests are welcomed to Four Seasons Hotel Abu Dhabi in a soaring, light-filled hall. Front desk and expert concierge teams are close by, while three restaurants and lounges beckon. Guests attending conferences or weddings will find one of two ballrooms with natural daylight adjacent to this area, with a grand staircase leading to additional event spaces with extensive outdoor terraces overlooking the water.
Further inside three more dining and drinking options await, including a rooftop poolside terrace with sweeping skyline and sea views, and a fabulous spa and fitness complex with separate male and female therapeutic areas and fitness centres open to both hotel guests and day visitors.
At day’s end, 200 rooms and suites – many connecting for families and groups travelling together – provide a welcome sanctuary. Cool and inviting, each features myriad thoughtful touches from the spa-like bathroom to the self-serve refreshment bar and at-one’s-fingertips technology. All accommodations feature the new, fully customisable Four Seasons Bed dressed in soft white linens.
