The spotlight is set to shine all over this Emirate as 2019 brings with it a host of new arrivals and openings…
Last year’s roster of new hotels included the striking Edition Abu Dhabi along the waterfront of Al Bateen Marina, featuring 198 super-slick guest rooms and 57 serviced residences plus three signature restaurants to be seen in.
This year’s hotel chatter is dominated by the new Radisson Blu Hotel and Resort on Abu Dhabi’s famed Corniche.
The brand has taken on one of the best-loved and historic properties in the Emirate and restored each of the 327 rooms and suites, while giving the three swimming pools, spa and beach club a modern makeover.
The nine restaurants, 14 meeting rooms and two stylish ballrooms are set to delight event planners. Radisson Blu will also open a property in nearby Al Ain as it furthers its Middle East footprint.
Not to be outdone, Jumeirah will also follow its 2018 launch of Jumeirah Saadiyat Island (main image above) with its latest launch – Jumeirah Al Wathba Desert Resort & Spa (right) set to open this year.
But it’s not just all about hotels. Other notable debuts in 2019 include the arrival of Cirque du Soleil in Abu Dhabi with their theatrical circus show, Bazzar, and an impressive global crowd puller – Pope Francis himself – making the first papal visit to the Arabian Peninsula.
