Films, food trucks and family-friendly fun – take a look inside the new Abu Dhabi hotel.
Megaprojects come and come in Abu Dhabi. We’ve watched as an architectural wonder has risen up from the sand and into the sky – in true UAE-style. It has now been confirmed that the Atlantis-style structure, with its head-turning curves and majestic arch, will be home to Rixos Marina Abu Dhabi.
Rixos Marina Abu Dhabi’s five-star hotel and residence is scheduled to open in the autumn. The hotel is located on the Abu Dhabi Marina, and boasts widescreen views of the sea as well as the skyline. This is the fifth Rixos property in the UAE, and guests can expect some of the brand’s trademark offerings.
The property aims to blend together Arabian and Turkish influences across its restaurants, entertainment and design. The food and beverage offerings include the expected restaurant, lounge and bar, but it ticks the on-trend box with its food trucks.
Rixos Marina Abu Dhabi’s plans to get the party started, as it will be welcoming world-famous DJs. The beach club will be a place to relax in the day and party in the night, as it will also include a VIP pier bar and lounge.
If you’re after a family-friendly hotel in Abu Dhabi, then put this on your hotel list. Facilities include a spray action pool, kids’ pool and a teenager’s club, which is home to PlayStation tournaments, sports academies and rhythm workshops. The cinema screen promises to keep all the family entertained with the latest Hollywood blockbusters. Plus, adults can relax in style at the Turkish hammam or work up a sweat in the gym, which includes aerobic and yoga classes.
HH Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, said of the opening: “We are delighted to have partnered with the Accor and Rixos Hotels to operate one of the luxurious hotels in the Capital “Rixos Marina Abu Dhabi Hotel. This development will further enhance the vision of the National Investment Corporation, the developer of Marina Island – Abu Dhabi to provide a luxury waterfront destination.
