First EDITION hotel in the Middle East opens in Abu Dhabi

by Andrew Manns | 31 Oct 2018

The latest addition to the EDITION luxury brand of hotels has opened in Abu Dhabi.

The 198-room resort – which features 57 residences as well as a three-storey nightclub, fitness centre, spa, barbershop, ballroom, and infinity pool – marks the brand’s first foray into the MENA region.

Other amenities at the EDITION Abu Dhabi include three gourmet restaurants – all of which will be helmed by award-winning chef, Tom Aikens.

Designed by Lebanese architecture and engineering firm, Khatib & Alami and built by Dubai-based ASGC, the hotel forms part of Abu Dhabi’s Marina Bloom mixed-use development.

The EDITION chain, which was developed as a joint venture by Marriott International and entrepreneur Ian Schrager a decade ago – most recently added venues in Spain and Turkey to its global repertoire.

The company is slated to debut at least two more hotels in 2019.
