Abu Dhabi's newest hotel is officially open.

Conrad Abu Dhabi Etihad Towers began welcoming guests on October 1.

The skyscraper hotel, run by Jumeirah since 2011, marks a debut in the capital for Hilton's luxury Conrad brand.

The hotel team celebrated the launch with a two-metre tall cake. The replica model of the towers on Abu Dhabi's corniche was created by the hotel's pastry chefs.

Occupying one of the five high-rise buildings that consitute Etihad Towers, rates for overnight stays start from Dh700 in a Premier Room.

All rooms in the hotel come with views over the Corniche and the Arabian Gulf and guests can also check-out the views from one of the city's highest vantage points on level 74 at the Observation Deck.

Not too much has changed when it comes to dining at the Etihad Towers hotel which is good news for fans of its popular Japanese restaurant Tori No Su.

The award-winning eatery promises to continue serving up expertly crafted kaiseki dishes. At Li Beirut, diners can tuck into classic Lebanese cuisine with a modern twist and VaKaVa offers pan-Latin cuisine in a funky atmosphere. Elsewhere, the ever-popular Ray's Bar on the 62nd floor continues to command its enviable views.

There's also three swimming pools, a spa with 13 treatment rooms and a private beach.

Conrad Abu Dhabi Etihad Towers opened with Hilton's Cleanstay programme in place. The hygiene imitative is designed to protect travellers "from check-in to check-out” says Hilton.

It includes room seals to demonstrate to guests that no one has accessed their room subsequent to it being cleaned and contactless check-in facilities.
