The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi Grand Canal to open with a 17,222 sq foot swimming pool in front


Abu Dhabi has always been quite selective when it comes to offering the best in luxury and lifestyle. The Emirate’s hospitality sector is now going to get a fashionable addition with the Ritz-Carlton signing up with Abu Dhabi National Hotels (ADNH) for a waterfront hotel. The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal will be spread across 54 acres and will boast 447 guestrooms and suites and 85 villas. It will be shaped like a crescent and will be Venetian-themed. As goes the name, it will feature a Grand Canal in the front where guests at the villa can enjoy stunning views while being pampered by a personalized butler service. It will also feature ESPA – a 21,500-square-foot spa, a fitness center and outdoor tennis courts, three restaurants – an Italian restaurant, steak and seafood restaurant and a Middle Eastern and an Asian restaurant. It will also have a rooftop terrace that will offer food and beverage services as well as two poolside bars and a lobby lounge. The main attraction however will be a 17,222 sq foot swimming pool in front of the hotel. The property is expected to be open late this year.
