Rocco Forte Hotel Opens in Abu Dhabi

The Rocco Forte Hotel Abu Dhabi opened on Nov. 7; the first Rocco Forte property outside of Europe and the first installment in the series of three hotels slated to be developed by the luxury British brand in the Middle East.

The hotel, which is conveniently near the city’s private and international airports, is architecturally intriguing with 11 stories of wave-shaped blue and green glass. The amenities make the property truly luxe: with a spa with wet and dry hammam, four restaurants, two (soon to be three) bars, and an indoor and an outdoor pool.  The 281-room hotel also neighbors the exhibition center, Yas Island, and a Formula One Grand Prix track.
