Abu Dhabi is getting a new hotel and we’re really excited. The actual hotel is a rebrand of the luxurious Jumeirah Etihad Towers, so we know it’s going to be more than good.
Conrad Abu Dhabi Etihad Towers, the name of the hotel, will start welcoming guests in just a few days from now, on 1 October.
With the signing of the management agreement between Hilton (NYSE:HLT) and His Highness Sheikh Suroor Bin Mohammed Al Nahyan, it’s the first of Hilton’s luxury portfolio to operate in the UAE capital.
We also know that for now all the food and beverage offerings in the hotel will remain the same, but as soon as that changes we will let you know.
Speaking about the agreement, His Highness Sheikh Suroor Bin Mohammed Al Nahyan, said: “Etihad Towers is the embodiment of modern and sophisticated luxury and I am delighted to be partnering with Hilton to open Conrad Abu Dhabi Etihad Towers.
“Abu Dhabi’s global reputation will be further enhanced with the presence of the luxury Conrad brand – a suitable addition to the world-class retail and dining options available at this landmark development.”
One of five towers that form the Etihad Towers complex, the hotel features multiple exciting venues for social activities, including 12 dining concepts, a luxurious spa, private beach, three swimming pools, and outstanding conference and event facilities.
The 576 guest rooms, suites and residences offer some of the most incredible views of the Arabian Gulf – whilst also providing easy access to one of the world’s most exclusive retail collections at The Avenue at Etihad Towers.
Jochem-Jan Sleiffer, Hilton’s President for the Middle East, Africa and Turkey, only had good things to say about Hilton’s luxury brand debuting in the capital, pointing out how “Abu Dhabi is a world leading destination and remains a historic city for Hilton as a location where we began welcoming guests in the UAE almost 50 years ago.
“We are proud to be working with His Highness Sheikh Suroor Bin Mohammed Al Nahyan to bring this iconic hotel to our portfolio and look forward to providing luxury Conrad service at Etihad Towers.”
Abu Dhabi now joins a coveted list of world capitals and destinations to host the Conrad Hotels & Resorts brand, such as New York, Dubai, London, Istanbul and Hong Kong.
