Conrad Abu Dhabi Etihad Towers will open on Thursday.
The skyscraper hotel, run by Jumeirah since 2011, will reopen as a Conrad – the first in the capital – after an agreement between Hilton and Sheikh Suroor Bin Mohammed Al Nahyan.
“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,” Sheikh Suroor said.
“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.”
Conrad Abu Dhabi Etihad Towers has 12 dining concepts, including popular Japanese eatery Tori No Su and Italian restaurant BiCE. There are also three swimming pools with swim-up bars and a private beach that is accessible only to hotel guests.
The hotel has 576 rooms, suites and residences, all with views of the Arabian Gulf or the Abu Dhabi corniche. The Royal Etihad Suite is the cream of the crop at 980 square metres in size and occupying the entirety of Level 60.
Nils-Arne Schroeder, global brand head for Conrad Hotels & Resorts, said: “The debut of Conrad Abu Dhabi Etihad Towers in the capital of the UAE marks a significant milestone for the brand as we grow our portfolio in iconic locations around the world to better meet the needs of discerning travellers everywhere.
“This hotel is perfectly placed to offer guests a truly inspired stay with personalised connections to the local cultural and artistic experiences for which Abu Dhabi is known, all anchored by Conrad’s signature intuitive guest service.”
Conrad Abu Dhabi Etihad Towers joins 39 other Conrad hotels around the world, in destinations including Dubai, Bora Bora, London, New York and Singapore. The brand is part of Hilton’s luxury portfolio and is known for its modern design, upscale amenities and sense of place.
