First Vegas, Now Nobu Hotel Turns to Abu Dhabi

nob

We first told you about plans for a Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Now comes word for plans to open a Nobu-branded hotel in Abu Dhabi. The Japanese restaurant chain, which is part-owned by Robert De Niro, has signed a preliminary agreement to operate a luxury hotel on Reem Island.

Nobu Hotel would be slated to open in 2014 and include about 200 hotel rooms, 80 apartments and a branch of the Nobu restaurant. Reem Investments, developer of the Reem Island development, reported it had signed a non-binding letter of intent with Nobu Hospitality to manage the planned hotel.

The move follows other agreements for Nobu-branded hotel openings in Las Vegas and Saudi Arabia.
