nyone who has visited Abu Dhabi will know that it is one of the
most luxurious destinations in the world. In previous instalments
of the A & J diaries, it’s been our pleasure to report on some of the
most lavish experiences that the Emirate has to offer. We’ve enjoyed staying
at some of Abu Dhabi’s finest hotels, and dined in some of its very best
restaurants. Despite all this, we were still experiencing butterflies of
excitement about our visit to the Jumeirah Hotel at Etihad Towers.
Since it opened last November, there has been a huge amount of buzz
around the Etihad Towers complex – and it’s easy to see why. The five
towers, set in a beautiful coastal location, encompass a sumptuous choice of
world-class residences, prestigious offices, and luxury retail outlets. The
complex was developed under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Suroor
bin Mohammed Al Nahyan’s Projects Department, with architects DBI
Australia starting work on the unique project in January 2006. So it’s taken
over five years to complete – and when you see the towers, you’ll agree that
it was time well spent.
It’s fair to say that the ambitious beachfront project has already developed
iconic status. To look at, the towers simply take your breath away. They are
located on the shores of the Arabian Gulf in the exclusive Ras Al Akhdar
area, on the West Corniche of Abu Dhabi. It’s a beautiful location, and also
an incredibly convenient one – close to the central business district and
Ministries Area, and only about 40km from Abu Dhabi International
Airport.
