A chic boutique hotel with fantastic restaurants and incredible rooms

Time Out Says

Abu Dhabi hotels are many brilliant things, but there are times when they are not subtle. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, of course. Who doesn’t want to descend a grand staircase to the sound of a pianist in a ball gown or gaze up at a huge crystal chandelier the size of most people’s apartments every now and then?

However, if you have a thing for minimalism, muted tones and quiet contemplation, The Abu Dhabi EDITION is probably the place for you.

The striking exterior, which juts out over the Al Bateen Marina, gives way to a spacious lobby, where bespoke artworks move gently overhead and soft music plays in the background. An art hotel that puts style and sophistication above showing off, the EDITION is one of the most relaxing and comfortable hotels in the emirate.

As well as the 200 rooms, there are three superb resturants and one very cool bar, all with menus designed by top British chef Tom Aikens. We recommend trying Oak Room for a bit of classic steakhouse action, Alba Terrace for some Mediterranean dishes and Market for light, healthy snacks and breakfast.

Outside there’s a three-storey nightlife venue, ANNEX, with a stunning rooftop terrace, club area and casual bar inside.

The pool area outside has cabanas dipping into the water and a bar serving refreshments all day. There’s also a Chaps & Co. barbershop, a gym and spa on site.

For a UAE staycation like no other, the EDITION is the place to be. From a plastic-free policy to serving its own-brand craft hops in the minibar, the little things are looked after here. Check it out and see.
