A first look: The Latest Addition

Updated: Aug 21, 2019

The EDITION Abu Dhabi is the latest mark of exclusivity for the UAE capital, promising and delivering a glamorous new spot to the city’s luxury hunters to see and be seen.

The Basics

Have you heard about the EDITION? If not, why are you always the last to know? The capital is the latest city to be graced by an EDITION hotel, an exclusive Marriott brand consisting of just 8 luxury boutique hotels, which offer "high-octane glamour," and were conceived of by hotelier Ian Schrager.

The Location

The EDITION Abu Dhabi is located at Al Bateen Marina. The brand is distinguished interior design, but the hotel also commissioned a notable exterior, shrouding itself in a lattice like shell to represent the lateen sails of traditional dhow boats, which were historically built in the marina.

Michelin Star

Michelin-starred Chef Tom Aikens has curated the menus for three of the hotel’s outlets. His fresh approach to fine dining will be a welcome addition to the city's crowded gastronomic scene. Turn to page 38 to learn more about the chef and his thoroughly modern approach to fine food.
