Bloom opens Mideast's first Edition hotel in Abu Dhabi

ABU DHABI, December 20, 2018

Leading property developer Bloom Holding has launched the region's first Edition hotel within its mixed-use development, Bloom Marina, in Abu Dhabi, offering a new kind of resort environment and breathtaking beauty and serenity of Marina Bateen.

Edition Hotels is the most successful boutique hotel brand developed by renowned American hotelier and real estate developer Ian Schrager in partnership with Marriott International, with eight hotels already opened and 30 in the pipeline.

The powerful partnership brings with it the region’s finest hotel concept offering the ultimate elevated experience in design, food, amenities and entertainment.

Bloom Holding CEO Sameh Muhtadi said: “We are proud to bring the first Edition Hotel to the Middle East, marking an important milestone in its efforts to expand its hospitality portfolio in partnership with reputed international hotel brands."

"We are confident that The Abu Dhabi Edition will set the bar high for delivering outstanding guest experiences by combining exceptional design and innovation with personal, friendly, modern five-star service,” he stated.

Strategically situated along the marina, the view on arrival is the distinctive and memorable exterior, reminiscent of the lateen sails of the traditional Dhow boats that the region was once famed for building.

The Abu Dhabi Edition features 198 guest rooms, suites and 57 exclusive residences, ideal for longer stays. Boasting a neutral palette and sweeping views over the surrounding water, each room features photography by the 20th century photographer Brett Weston.

Every aspect of the traditional hotel has been re-imagined to create a sense of superior warmth and welcome to guests. Anticipating the changing needs and desires of the modern traveller, The Abu Dhabi Edition offers a distinctive, upscale environment, encompassing innovative design whilst respecting and celebrating the lifestyle and traditions of the Emirati culture, said the developer.

The Abu Dhabi Edition blends the form and details of traditional architecture as well as natural local patterns that are the inspiration for the materials, colour palettes and details that feature throughout the hotel.

The Abu Dhabi Edition is home to three award-winning restaurants created by world-renowned chef Tom Aikens, famed for being the youngest chef to ever have been awarded two Michelin stars. They include Market at Edition, an imaginative, healthy lifestyle restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner; Oak Room, a traditional English oak paneled steakhouse celebrating world-class ingredients with British rock ‘n’ roll flair; and Alba Terrace, a serene, coastal Mediterranean-style restaurant that offers the finest locally sourced coffee and light lunches. 

Furthermore, the hotel wonderland features an international gourmet market, a lobby bar, a pool bar and a three-story Annex opening soon. 

Edition Spa, opening in late 2018, will be one of the most unique and special elements of the hotel, featuring separate zones for men and women and consisting of seven treatment rooms including two Hammams, a facial room and couple’s treatment suite.

Abu Dhabi Edition also offers two purpose-built gyms, and two beautifully white-tiled swimming pools, one connecting to the main hotel and the other in the private residences.

The property also offers over 900-sq-m of meeting and event space, including several meeting rooms, ballrooms and boardrooms.

The hotel is part of Bloom Properties’ Bloom Marina mixed-use development, a landmark waterfront destination strategically situated along the marina, and is 20 minutes from The Louvre Abu Dhabi and the beaches of Saadiyat, and just 35 minutes from Yas Island. The development features premium residences, executive serviced apartments, health clubs, cafés and restaurants.

With the opening of Abu Dhabi Edition, Bloom Holding has achieved a remarkable milestone in the growth of its hospitality portfolio that encompasses four and five-star hotels and serviced hotel apartments. - TradeArabia News Service
