The hotel business is back in Abu Dhabi and with a bang. Just when we thought that the hospitality sector was going through a decline in this rich city of the Sheikhs, the Eastern Mangrove by Anantara hotel has put Abu Dhabi back on track. The hotel and spa which opened in June is the epitome of luxury and is nothing short of opulence. It also boasts of having the largest suite in UAE called the Royal Mangroves Residence. It’s a massive ten bedroom suite and is meant only for the rich and loaded!
Luxury hotels are common in the UAE and the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray leaves you awe struck with its grand interiors and the many restaurants and bars. The JW Marriot Marquis Dubai is being slated as the tallest hotel in Dubai at 1,164 feet which is a jaw dropping figure indeed. Spread across 54,895 square feet the hotel will have 807 rooms and also has facilities for meetings, conferences, exhibitions and other incentives. The hospitality sector in Dubai is brimming with luxury and not long ago at the Fairmont hotel guests were charged with a bill of $105,000 and that too only for drinks. The stories of the economic slowdown in Dubai were put to rest after the news of this exorbitant spending. While luxury’s available galore on land, Dubai also intends to explore the underwater world. Dicus the underwater hotel will be one of its kind in the world with some rooms submerged in water! To add to the glitter of the Dubai skyline is the Apeiron Dubai hotel , which can be accessed only by yacht and will have over 350 luxury suites.
