Abu Dhabi, UAE – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
On November 1, 2011, Jumeirah at Etihad Towers opened in Abu Dhabi, marking the luxury hotel group’s first foray into the UAE’s vibrant capital. Located on the Arabian Gulf in the Ras Al Akhdar area of Abu Dhabi, close to the central business district and ministry compounds, the contemporary space is poised to set a new standard in hospitality, gastronomy and relaxation in the emirate.
Jumeirah at Etihad Towers touts 382 guest rooms and suites, 199 fully serviced residences and one of the largest conference centers in Abu Dhabi. The modern glass tower stands almost 1,000 feet tall, its interiors outfitted in a sleek contemporary design featuring the best Italian marble, custom hand-tufted carpets and photography depicting life in Abu Dhabi in the 1960s culled from the private collection of His Highness Sheikh Suroor bin Mohammed Al Nahyan.
Leisure travelers will find respite in the hotel’s Talise Spa, featuring fully contained treatment suites, Turkish hammam and Arabian Rasoul. A private beach gives sun-seekers the perfect opportunity to lay out without having to wander far from home base. Perfectly appointed accommodations and food & beverage venues all offer superb vistas of Abu Dhabi’s Corniche, city skyline and coastline.
Jumeirah at Etihad Tower’s focus on gastronomy and urban-chic nightlife promises to draw a local and international following, keeping the hotel buzzing with a discerning clientele. On-property, guests will find 12 restaurants, bars and lounges—the two signature restaurants, Li Beirut and Quest, offer unique modern interpretations of Lebanese and Asian cuisine, respectively.
The impressive conference center can accommodate up to 1,400 guests in a conference setting or 1,000 guests for a seated banquet dinner. Designed to enhance the seamless coordination of events and uninterrupted flow of visiting guests and delegates, the center, including its Mezzoon ballroom, all 13 meeting rooms, VIP suites, Bridal Suite, business center and showroom, is housed on the same level.
