Anantara to open Abu Dhabi hotel in June
BY Pete Hayman



Anantara Hotels, Resorts and Spas has announced that its first Middle East city hotel is due to open in the Eastern Mangroves district of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, in June.

The new 222-bedroom Eastern Mangroves Hotel and Spa by Anantara is set to form part of an integrated hotel, marina, retail and residential development located just outside central Abu Dhabi.

Facilities will include an Anantara Spa housing 10 treatment rooms - two double and eight individual - and a 132sq m (1,421sq ft) Arabic hammam, as well as saunas and steamrooms.

The spa will also feature relaxation lounges and separate lobbies and check-in areas for men and women, with treatments to include the Anantara Signature Massage.

Elsewhere, Eastern Mangroves Hotel and Spa by Anantara will feature a rooftop lounge overlooking the district; a Thai speciality restaurant; and a ballroom.

The architecture of the hotel has been influenced by elements of Arabic design and includes archways, mashrabiya windows and mosaics. The design also utilises 18-carat gold throughout the building.

Michel Koopman, the hotel's general manager and director of operations for Anantara in the Middle East, said the property will cater for the growing numbers of corporate and leisure visitors to Abu Dhabi.

"Eastern Mangroves Hotel and Spa by Anantara is a true Abu Dhabi hotel with Emirati traditions and influences reflected throughout the property," said Koopman.
