The Abu Dhabi EDITION

Modern on the Marina

What it is

A sculptural 198-room hotel on Al Bateen Marina with five buzzing bars and restaurants, an earthy spa, and cabana-lined outdoor pools that are places to see and be seen.

What it isn't

Tailor-made for families with young kids. Isn’t it nice to have a break from cannonballs in the pool?

What we think

Modernist architecture can sometimes feel cold and off-putting. Not so the Abu Dhabi EDITION, where every guest room is adorned in herringbone parquet gray oak flooring and wood paneled walls that summon the historic libraries of the Ivy League. The starting room category, Deluxe, lives up to its name with a deep soaking tub, LED-lit spa-like bathroom with Le Labo toiletries and plush robes and slippers, Nespresso machines and so much more within its roomy 527 square foot floor plan. If you love watching the yachts bob on the water (who doesn’t?) book an aptly named Marina Suite; they have separate living rooms and powder rooms amid their 1,270 square feet of room to roam. While you’re here, stop in at the Library Bar to sip tippy-top-shelf gin from a tufted velvet banquette.

You're here because

Famed celebrity hair stylist Rossano Ferretti has a salon outpost here, where you can indulge in everything from extensions to a blowout.

The Moment

You long for an only-in-the-UAE spa treatment, and the EDITION has it: a camel milk bath soak, exactly as delightful as it sounds.
