Abu Dhabi, August 15, 2013
St Regis Hotels & Resorts, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts, has announced the opening of the St Regis Abu Dhabi featuring 283 rooms, including 55 suites, all offering waterfront views of the Arabian Gulf.
Located on the Corniche in the heart of the UAE capital, the St Regis Abu Dhabi is part of Nation Towers complex and is the third St Regis hotel to open in the Middle East since the brand was introduced to the region in 2011.
“We are excited to offer one-of-a-kind experiences to global travellers and local residents alike, including access to the world’s highest suspended suite, the first Gary Rhodes restaurant in the emirate and the first Hommage Gentleman’s Grooming Atelier in the UAE,” said Oliver Key, general manager, St Regis Abu Dhabi.
Designed by Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) together with local designers, the hotel’s understated interiors were inspired by the region’s rich heritage and the St Regis brand’s legacy, a statement said.
The Abu Dhabi Suite is the world’s highest suspended hotel suite – positioned 200 metres above ground between the two towers and offering magnificent panoramic views of the Arabian Gulf, the Corniche and the city skyline.
The 1,085 sq m Abu Dhabi Suite combines contemporary design with a traditional Arabic influence. The opulent suite will feature cascading strands of crystals, 24-carat gold leaf accents, leather wall tiles, jewel-toned velvet upholstered walls and intricate glass mosaic patterns.
The St Regis Abu Dhabi offers eight culinary venues including Rhodes 44, which marks the first restaurant in Abu Dhabi by famed Michelin-starred chef Gary Rhodes, and the iconic St Regis Bar, which follows in the tradition of the St Regis brand’s legendary New York hotel.
The hotel has over 3,000 sq m of leisure facilities, including the indulgent Reméde Spa for ladies, two outdoor swimming pools and the first Hommage Gentleman’s Grooming Atelier in the UAE.
The St Regis Abu Dhabi also offers more than 4,800 sq m of state-of-the-art meeting and event space. – TradeArabia News Service
