Abu Dhabi's luxury hotel scene is getting better and better: Hotelier Middle East is reporting that the Oetker Collection’s first hotel in the Middle East, Le Bristol Abu Dhabi, is scheduled to open in the second half of 2013.

We hear that Le Bristol Abu Dhabi is inspired by Le Bristol Paris, one of five hotels in The Oetker Collection portfolio.

The Oetker Collection senior vice president development Middle East and Africa Samir Daqqaq said a relationship had been formed with the owning company when the chairman of NCTH, HE Sheikh Hamdan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, visited Le Bristol Paris.

On the hotel's website, Al Nahyan says that tourism is one the priority areas in the Economic Vision 2030 unveiled by Abu Dhabi last year. "Abu Dhabi’s tourism sector is set for a major boost, buoyed be the inaugural Abu Dhabi Formula 1 Grand Prix late last year. As per projections by the Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority, the hotel guest target is estimated to touch 2.7 million annually by 2012." He also compared the upcoming Le Bristol to other cultural attractions like Le Louvre Abu Dhabi and The Guggenheim Abu Dhabi Museum.

The hotel will be located on Bainouna Street in Abu Dhabi. Visit www.oetkercollection.com/eng/le-bristol-abu-dhabi/overview.aspx for more information.
