Global hospitality firm Hyatt Hotels Corporation has announced the opening of Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi, which turned iconic “Leaning Tower of Abu Dhabi” into the first Andaz branded hotel in the Middle East.
Aligned with the brand ethos of authentically bringing the local neighborhood to life, Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi offers inspiring experiences, helping guests immerse themselves in their surroundings and feel like a local from the moment they arrive.
“As we weave in the sights, sounds and tastes of the local Abu Dhabi culture, the opening of Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi marks a significant milestone for Hyatt, reinforcing its standing with visitors and residents of the city,” said Stuart Deeson, hotel general manager and area vice president for Hyatt Abu Dhabi, Egypt and Jordan.
Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi occupies floors 18 to 33 within the iconic Capital Gate building and is the world’s furthest leaning hotel at an impressive 18-degree incline.
Synonymous with the brand’s intention to immerse guests in the local culture, the property takes guests on a journey through the United Arab Emirates’ unique identity.
Design elements are multi-layered and span various textures and techniques in order to represent both the country’s modest beginnings and traditional elements, as well as the current ultra modern façade of the city.
Upon entering Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi, guests are greeted by an array of creative, thought-provoking masterpieces crafted by skilled local artists to introduce them to the local culture.
The ground floor serves as a permanent art space for guests to explore throughout their stay, and within each guestroom features its own individual artwork to familiarize them with the region.
All aspects of the 189 contemporary, luxurious guestrooms and suites have been designed for today’s traveler and exude a sense of warm Arabian hospitality. Floor to ceiling glass paneled windows offer sweeping views of the city, and each guestroom is outfitted with specially curated amenities such as the hotel’s bespoke Andaz Loungewear created by award winning locally-based designer Essa Walla.
Walla was commissioned to develop an exclusive line of bold and colorful loungewear pieces intended to evoke Arabian flair. Guests can wear these pieces on property and have the option to purchase them as a memento from their visit. – HotelNewsAsia.com
