“Rosewood Abu Dhabi will provide a luxury lifestyle experience currently unmatched in the capital.”
The design creates a distinct, personalized luxury lifestyle experience that captures the essence of Rosewood Hotels and Resorts’ “sense of place” philosophy.
Interior spaces take cues from the local topography and culture, merging the vastness of the desert’s white sand dunes with the crystal blue of the Arabian Sea. The sleek, modern aesthetic creates a feeling of understated opulence and elegance. Natural materials include stone, wood and glass.
The grand lobby, with a backdrop of the surrounding waterways and the sea beyond, is bordered on one side by a flowing water feature and on the other by a dramatic wall of art. Soft tonal colors inspired by the textural essence of the desert landscape are balanced by bursts of blues and greens.
The design of the interior encourages a free flow of movement between key living zones, promoting an easy, relaxed experience. Full-height windows bring unique views into every guestroom, offering 360-degree panoramas of the city and sea. Guestroom furnishings echo the stylish feel of those in the lobby, though fabrics are richer. Modern regional artwork, mixed with traditional accessories and pottery, weave the indigenous expression of the public spaces into the rooms.
Rosewood Abu Dhabi features nine signature restaurants and lounges; eight conference and event spaces, including a ballroom accommodating 1,000 guests; pool and gym facilities; and a spa.
