Edition arrives in Middle East

The Middle East is welcoming its first example of the style-focused Edition Hotel concept founded by US entrepreneur Ian Schrager in collaboration with Marriott International with the opening of a signature property on the Al Bateen peninsula in Abu Dhabi.

Occupying a prime waterfront site, the hotel boasts an exterior design based on the lateen sails of the traditional dhow boats the region was once renowned for building and features a cavernous five-storey lobby with a curved atrium.

The hotel has 198 guestrooms and suites and 57 residences designed for longer stays. A spa opening shortly with separate zones for men and women will offer seven treatment rooms including two hammams and a couple’s treatment suite.

For fitness enthusiasts, the Abu Dhabi Edition has two purpose-built gyms equipped with free-weights, yoga mats, exercise balls and premium cardio equipment by Life Fitness. The property also boasts two white-tiled swimming pools

For event planners, the hotel offers a 654sq m ballroom with seating for 450 guests and accessible directly  from the hotel or the street. The space also houses a pre-function area, an executive boardroom, meeting rooms and business centre.
