A hotel named after chef Matsuhisa’s trendy restaurant? Word is out that next year Las Vegas will be home to the world’s first Nobu Hotel to be located in Caesar’s Palace. The fun and stylish hotel is rumored to have yet another destination- Abu Dhabi. Reem Investments has confirmed intent to operate a Nobu Hotel on Najmat Marina and Canal on Reem Island.
The new hotel will be part of Najmat, an $8 billion 16 million sq ft real estate development on Reem Island, developed by Reem Investments.”We look forward to establishing a close working partnership with Nobu Hospitality to create a new focal point for luxury lifestyle and hospitality in Abu Dhabi,” said Bambang Sugeng Bin Kajairi, CEO of Reem Investments in a recent interview with Arabian Business.
The hotel design will take advantage of the beautiful waterfront views of Reem Island and will include in addition to the Nobu Restaurant, a variety of bars and restaurants, a spa and gymnasium, private cabanas, retail outlets and full beachfront service.
Upon completion Najmat will offer residential, office and retail accommodation while community amenities will include a school, hospital, 166 berth marina, 800 metre canal, two mosques, and parks. Phase two of construction is scheduled for completion by the end of 2011.
Abu Dhabi is quickly becoming a Las Vegas for the Middle East. A city which encompasses a Leaning Tower, the first gold bar vending machine, a Ferrari World, and now a Nobu Hotel like Las Vegas, the UAE Capital is similarly making its mark in luxurious and trendy establishments.
