Conrad Hotels & Resorts is all set to make its debut in Abu Dhabi as it assumes the management of Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Towers.

Conrad parent company Hilton and the property’s owner Sheikh Suroor Bin Mohammed Al Nahyan have signed a management agreement, following which Etihad Towers will reopen as Conrad Abu Dhabi Etihad Towers on 01 October.

Conrad Abu Dhabi Etihad Towers will be the first of Hilton’s luxury portfolio to operate in Abu Dhabi.

Hilton Middle East, Africa and Turkey president Jochem-Jan Sleiffer said: “Abu Dhabi is a world leading destination and remains a historic city for Hilton as a location where we began welcoming guests in the UAE almost 50 years ago.

“We are proud to be working with Sheikh Suroor Bin Mohammed Al Nahyan to bring this iconic hotel to our portfolio and look forward to providing luxury Conrad service at Etihad Towers.”

The 576-room property features venues for social activities, including 12 dining concepts, spa, private beach, three swimming pools, and facilities for conference and events.

Conrad Hotels & Resorts combines contemporary design, modern amenities, and personalised service to provide better travel experiences at destinations such as New York, Dubai, London, Istanbul, and Hong Kong.

Conrad Hotels & Resorts global head Nils-Arne Schroeder said: “The debut of Conrad Abu Dhabi Etihad Towers in the capital of the UAE marks a significant milestone for the brand as we grow our portfolio in iconic locations around the world to better meet the needs of discerning travellers everywhere.

“This hotel is perfectly placed to offer guests a truly inspired stay with personalised connections to the local cultural and artistic experiences for which Abu Dhabi is known, all anchored by Conrad’s signature intuitive guest service.”
