Hyatt Hotels has announced the opening of Grand Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel & Residence Emirates Pearl, the first Grand Hyatt hotel to open in the United Arab Emirates’ capital city, Abu Dhabi. The luxury property combines iconic brand elements and awe-inspiring design and architecture with a central location in the capital that offers easy access to world-class shopping, dining and cultural events.
As the second Grand Hyatt hotel in the United Arab Emirates, joining Grand Hyatt Dubai, the Abu Dhabi property is a noteworthy addition to Hyatt’s steadfast growing hotel portfolio in the Middle East. The hotel is currently operating with a limited room inventory and a limited number of dining options. All other facilities, including the Grand Club, are expected to be available for guests in late 2018.
A short 35 minute drive from Abu Dhabi International Airport and the Louvre Abu Dhabi, the hotel is located along the charming Corniche, offering generous beachfront promenades and stunning landmark city views that feature famed UAE landmarks, including Emirates Palace, the Presidential Palace and The Founder’s Memorial.
“We are excited to open Grand Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel & Residence Emirates Pearl today,” said Julien Gonzalvez, general manager of the hotel. “This opening marks an important milestone in Hyatt’s growing portfolio in the Middle East. The property is set to become an iconic and sought after venue for both local and international visitors alike.”
“Today, we are proud to open our new landmark hotel and residences, a destination with a premium location and hospitality excellence that will strongly contribute to the growing, high-quality tourism and travel sector in the UAE capital,” said Ahmed Seddiq Al Mutawaa, chairman of EPDI, the owners of Grand Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel & Residences Emirates Pearl. “With the utmost dedication, our team has designed and built an exceptional and timeless luxury property which celebrates our local culture and history, and incorporates features such as the story of the natural pearl, a historical and famously symbolic Abu Dhabi treasure.”
Meticulously designed with bold and vibrant features, the property houses 332 guestrooms, 36 lavish suites, including the Presidential and Palatial Royal Suites, and 60 full-service one and two-bedroom residences, ranging from 968 to 1500 square feet, each thoughtfully conceptualized with key locally inspired details. For those residing in Suite or Club floor, additional exclusivity can be discovered on the 26th floor, as the Grand Club Lounge will provide a luxurious living space with sweeping views of the city’s skyline and the glittering Arabian Gulf.
