Situated in the downtown district on the waterfront of Al Bateen Marina, The Abu Dhabi Edition is the ultimate home-away-from-home. With plenty to experience, this urban oasis is unmatched in the UAE.

The architecture

Ian Schrager needs no introduction, with his work constantly emerging in New York City, Schrager has perfected the concept of the “boutique hotel” across the Big Apple, a design he has since taken all over the world. The Abu Dhabi Edition is his architectural debut in the Middle East, the first contemporary hotel of its kind in the UAE. Understated yet striking, the luxurious charm of the Abu Dhabi Edition’s lattice-like shell, reminiscent of the Louvre, will have you lost in a world of architecture style and opulence.

An overnight stay

Including views of the magnificent Abu Dhabi cityscape, the Deluxe double room, fitted with a king-size bed, is ideal for an uninterrupted nights sleep. Fresh and sleek decor in muted, neutral tones alongside the signature Edition scent will leave you completely relaxed. The tech-savvy room is complete with a flat-screen panel HDTV, Bluetooth speakers and complimentary Wifi. Oakwood panelling adorned with Brett Weston photography creates a contrast with the off-white marble of the bathroom, leaving you feeling cosy and refreshed during your stay.

Michelin-starred Chef Tom Aikens uses the highest quality local produce to ensure his all-day dining concept at Market focuses on imaginative, no waste, healthy lifestyle options, all while you watch in this open-kitchen dining setting.
