Oetker Collection cancels luxury hotel project in Abu Dhabi
German based luxury hotel group Oetker Collection, owner of prestigious luxury hotels Le Bristol Paris, Eden Cap Roc on the French Riviera, Chateau St Martin, Brenners Park in Baden Baden and operator of Palais Namaskar in Marrakech and Saint-Barth Isle de France in St Barth, has formally withdrawn from the project of opening a luxury hotel in Abu Dhabi, announced in 2009 and slated for 2014.
In a statement to CPP-LUXURY.COM, Oetker Collection’s Alain Briere, Vice President Sales and Marketing said: ”Oetker Collection and the National Corporation for Tourism and Hotels (NCTH) have decided not to proceed anymore with their joint efforts to build Hotel Le Bristol Abu Dhabi and to operate it as part of the Oetker Collection. After an intensive analysis both parties came to the conclusion that their initial plans for the hotel, which already date back to February 2009, cannot be executed to an extent necessary to make the project a long-term success.”
Oetker Collection is opening this December its first mountain resort, L’Apogee Courchevel, in the famous French Alps ski resort.
