The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal Now Open





ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates, March 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- After much anticipation, The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal has opened its doors today. The 532-room luxury resort is the first Ritz-Carlton in Abu Dhabi and the ninth property in the Middle East for the luxury hotel operator.

Inspired by 15 th to early 17 th century Renaissance architecture and the urban planning of the city of Venice, The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal is located at the waterfront and consists of ten stately buildings arranged in a crescent formation. Overlooking the 1,600 square meter pool, the backdrop of the hotel is the majestic Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. The property features 447 luxurious guestrooms and suites, in addition to 85 private one- and two-bedroom villas. 

"We are delighted to open our  first hotel in the United Arab Emirates capital of Abu Dhabi, a city we have waited to be in until finding absolutely the right location," stated Herve Humler President and Chief Operations Officer of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C.  "Warm Arabian hospitality combined with legendary Ritz-Carlton service will create many unique, once-in-a-lifetime experiences for visitors from around the world."

Abu Dhabi, the largest of UAE's seven emirates, was a fishing village known regionally for its pearl trade just 50 years ago.  Today, luxury and style are infused with traditional values of hospitality and culture, and make this dynamic city a draw for over 2 million visitors annually.  Made up of 200 small islands, Abu Dhabi's stunning beaches, expansive desert and lush oases provide a venue for exhilarating adventure or tranquil retreat while the old souks and majestic Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque – recently named one of the world's top visitor attractions – offer an intimate look into Arabian culture.

Beautifully manicured lawns, unique water features, and private beaches over an expansive 57-acres give an immediate sense of well-being to guests upon arrivel at the Venetian-designed Ritz-Carlton. Leisure and business travellers alike will enjoy the refined elegance of the 85 one- and two-bedroom villas complete with spacious outdoor terraces, separate arrival palazzo and private butler service.  The Ritz-Carlton Club Level provides a dedicated concierge, private check-in, plus five food and beverage offerings throughout the day within an exclusive lounge boasting panoramic views of the property, canal and city skyline,
