Conrad Hotels & Resorts will make its debut in Abu Dhabi this week as it takes over the management of one of the UAE capital’s most prestigious hotels, Etihad Towers.

The hotel, formerly part of the Jumeirah Group portfolio, will reopen as Conrad Abu Dhabi Etihad Towers on Thursday (October 1) following the signing of a management agreement between Conrad parent company, Hilton and the property’s owner, H.H. Sheikh Suroor Bin Mohammed Al Nahyan.

“Abu Dhabi is a world leading destination and remains a historic city for Hilton as a location where we began welcoming guests in the UAE almost 50 years ago. We are proud to be working with H.H. Sheikh Suroor Bin Mohammed Al Nahyan to bring this iconic hotel to our portfolio and look forward to providing luxury Conrad service at Etihad Towers,” said Hilton’s President for the Middle East, Africa and Turkey, Jochem-Jan Sleiffer.

H.H. Sheikh Suroor Bin Mohammed Al Nayhan added that Abu Dhabi’s global reputation would be “further enhanced” by the presence of the luxury Conrad brand as “a suitable addition to the world-class retail and dining options available at this landmark development”.

Occupying one of five towers at the Etihad Towers complex, the hotel offers 576 guest rooms, suites and residences with Arabian Gulf views; some 12 dining concepts, a spa, private beach, three swimming pools, and expansive conference and event facilities.

It also provides easy access to one of the world’s most exclusive retail collections at The Avenue at Etihad Towers.
