Five Star Resort planned at Abu Dhabi Beachfront

A Five-Star Resort, worth Dh.800million, at the beachfront in Abu Dhabi, is to be built by the Al Fahim Group. The company has entered into an agreement with the TDIC (Tourism Development and Investment Company) for construction of a 369 room hotel which features Conference facilities of about 12000Sq.mts. in area.

The Chairman of TDIC, Sheikh Sultan bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, states that the resort is located in the main road and links the Central Business District and the Abu Dhabi International Airport and is in the proximity to Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center, which is a landmark destination for regional, international, local and business travelers.

The hotel will be in the midst of nineteen luxury residential serviced villas, each located around a central pool. The hotel will have an all-day dining restaurant, signature dining outlet, lobby level bakery café, themed restaurants and a terrace refreshment area. Separate Luxury Spa facilities for women and men, a beauty parlour and gymnasium are added complements. The hotel will also have a roof-top tennis court, an outdoor terrace pool and a two storey podium with rooms all in a nine-storey tower.

According to Saeed, the hotel is designed in a manner that is apt for the market demands and with its current location, will soon emerge as a destination which is best suited to cater to business traveling.

The Hotel complex is likely to be inaugurated during the third quarter of 2008.
