Hyatt Capital Gate Abu Dhabi opens
UAE-Hyatt Capital Gate Abu Dhabi, the first independently branded Hyatt outside the US, takes its first bookings today.
Its construction was in many ways a first too, as designers grappled with reconciling its distinctive slanting design – the tower leans at 18 degress – with the practical needs of 21st century hospitality.
The five-star hotel contains 189 rooms, including 22 suites, across levels 18-33 within the Capital Gate tower, which is directly next to the 73,000sqm Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Centre (ADNEC).
Given the proximity to ADNEC, the meetings offering is fairly small, with four rooms, although they’re bright with floor-to-ceiling windows. A meetings concierge is available.
Hyatt hopes some of its new F&B concepts will reach new heights.
Located on the 18th floor, 18° features three show kitchens which are designed to focus on entertaining guests while they savour speciality dishes created by Chef de Cuisine Ivan Musoni.
Rayana Spa, Abu Dhabi’s only ‘sky spa’, is perched on the 19th floor, offering an “elevated oasis experience” that complements the Fitness Centre, suspended outdoor pool and whirlpool.
Opening day online rates are AED1,050 for King and Twin rooms, rising to AED1,250 for Deluxe rooms.
