The hotel is the first Four Seasons to open in Abu Dhabi and is conveniently located by the UAE capital’s burgeoning new central business district on Al Maryah Island. It’s just 30 minutes from Abu Dhabi International Airport and is connected via climate-controlled passageways to the many luxury brand outlets of The Galleria mall.
Entering through a promenade across water, guests are welcomed to Four Seasons Hotel Abu Dhabi in a soaring, light-filled hall. Front desk staff and expert concierge teams are close by, while three restaurants and lounges beckon almost immediately. Guests attending conferences or weddings will find one of two ballrooms with natural daylight adjacent to this area, with a grand staircase leading to additional event spaces with extensive outdoor terraces overlooking the water.
Further inside, three more dining options await, including a rooftop poolside terrace with sweeping skyline and pool views, and a fabulous spa and fitness complex with separate male and female therapeutic areas.
At day’s end, 200 rooms and suites – many connecting for families and groups travelling together – provide a welcome sanctuary. Cool and inviting, each features myriad thoughtful touches from the spa-like bathroom to the self-serve refreshment bar and at-one’s-fingertips technology. All accommodations feature the new, fully customisable Four Seasons Bed dressed with soft white linens.
