The debut of St. Regis Abu Dhabi has been announced by Starwood Hotels and Resorts. St. Regis Abu Dhabi is set to be in the center of the UAE capital in Corniche and will provide, not just Arabian hospitality, but the utmost luxury at the same time. This will be the 3rd St. Regis of the Middle East ever since it arrived in the Gulf back in 2011.
St. Regis Abu Dhabi features 283 guest rooms, 55 of which are suites, all with sumptuous decorations and panoramic views of the Gulf. Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) and local designers came together to create the understated interiors of St. Regis Abu Dhabi, which were inspired by the brand's legacy and the rich heritage of the region. The design of St. Regis Abu Dhabi reflects desert colors, traditional souk and Art Deco decorations.
St. Regis Abu Dhabi is excited to provide a one-of-a-kind experience to locals and to tourists, including access to the highest suspended suite in the world, which is 200 meters above the ground and provides stunning panoramic views of the Gulf, the city skyline and the Corniche. This St. Regis Abu Dhabi suite is 1,085 square meters big and combines traditional influences with modern designs with cascading crystal strands, leather wall tiles, 24-carat gold leaf accents, intricate glass mosaic patterns and jewel-toned velvet upholstered walls. It also has 3 bedrooms, a soaring ceiling, a spa, a movie theater, a kitchen, a dining room, a gym and private elevator access.
St. Regis Abu Dhabi also has 8 culinary venues in total. The Rhodes 44, for instance, is the 1st Abu Dhabi restaurant by Gary Rhodes, a famous Michelin-starred chef. The St. Regis Bar, on the other hand, follows the brand's traditions. Villa Toscana is another new venue that serves regional dishes from Umbria, Emilia-Romagna and Tuscany. Guests can also enjoy one-of-akind dining experiences, fine beverages and tea at Cafe44, Crystal Lounge, Azura, Spa Cafe and The Tea Lounge.
St. Regis Abu Dhabi has more than 3,000 square meters of luxurious facilities, such as the ladies-only RemÃ©de Spa, 2 swimming pools and the very first Hommage Gentleman’s Grooming Atelier within the UAE. Guests may also enjoy private access to St. Regis Abu Dhabi's Nation Riviera Beach Club, which is slated to turn into a highly sought-after luxurious destination in Abu Dhabi after it opens in late 2013. Perfect for functions and other special celebrations, St. Regis Abu Dhabi provides over 4,800 square meters of top quality event and meeting space, as well.
Of course, the St. Regis Butler Service will also be available at St. Regis Abu Dhabi.
