Opening Late 2012: Rosewood Abu Dhabi

Rosewood Abu Dhabi

Rosewood Abu DhabiThe luxury barometer in Abu Dhabi continues to skyrocket with a spate of new hotel openings. In just a matter of months, Rosewood will make its debut in the emirate with a swanky hotel on Al Maryah Island in the new Central Business District. With views of the Arabian Gulf and the Abu Dhabi skyline from floor-to-ceiling windows, the 189 guest rooms—each stocked with an iPad room navigation system, a media centre with 55” flat-screen TV, an oversized Villeroy & Boch tub and Pratesi Egyptian cotton linen—will be serviced by 24-hour butlers. A collection of suites will serve international dignitaries; the Royal Suite, for example, will have a spacious reception area for receiving visitors, along with a meeting room, two bedrooms, a study and dining room.

Sense, A Rosewood Spa will be lavish in its design and offerings (think glittering whirlpool, mosaic-tiled hammams, and a sauna with fiber optic lighting). Dining options include Aqua, the signature all-day dining venue; Sambusek for modern Lebanese cuisine; Catalan, for upscale Spanish cuisine; La Cava for wine tastings; and Smoke, the shisha bar.
