Jumeirah opens first property in Abu Dhabi
Abu Dhabi, November 1, 2011
Dubai-based luxury hospitality group Jumeirah on Tuesday opened the doors of 'Jumeirah at Etihad Towers', its first property in the UAE capital.
The luxury hotel is located close to the central business district and ministry compounds in the Ras Al Akhdar area of Abu Dhabi.
The hotel boasts of 382 guestrooms and suites, 199 fully-serviced residences, 12 restaurants, bars and lounges, Talise Spa and one of the largest conference centres in Abu Dhabi.
'Jumeirah at Etihad Towers stands 280 metres tall and is furnished throughout in a modern contemporary design using rich materials including highly prized Italian marble, custom-designed hand-tufted carpets,' said the hotel manager Stefan Fuchs welcoming the first guests checking into the property.
Photographic art works depicting life in Abu Dhabi during the 1960s from the private photographic collection of His Highness Sheikh Suroor bin Mohammed Al Nahyan is also a major highlight, he observed.
According to him, Jumeirah at Etihad Towers offers both convenience to business travellers, as well as resort relaxation for guests seeking leisure experiences thanks to the hotel’s own private beach.
'The rooms, suites, residences and food and beverage outlets offer superb vistas of Abu Dhabi’s Corniche, city skyline and coastline,' remarked Fuchs.
'In addition to the luxury accommodation and hospitality services on offer, a major attraction of the property will be its gourmet experiences,' he said.
Another major feature of the property is the Conference Centre, one of Abu Dhabi’s largest, which can accommodate up to 1,400 guests in a conference setting or 1,000 guests for a seated banquet dinner, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
