5 New Hotels Openings in the UAELike0

The UAE is keeping busy in 2018 and 2019 with huge brands entering the market and some expanding! It has been a long wait for The Edition Abu Dhabi to launch and this is definitely one hotel in the UAE I have been waiting for purely out of curiosity since The Edition properties pride themselves on rubbing elbows with locals because there’s no better place to be in the moment. Hotels that feel different because they make you feel something. Hotels that don’t act like hotels. So this one is definitely something to watch for! Another interest new brand entering the UAE in hotels is Mandarin Oriental scheduled in 2019, the second in the region after Doha in 2018. Here are the 5 new hotels opening in the UAE for 2018 and 2019.

Jumeirah Saadiyat Island

Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort will open its doors on 11 November 2018, bringing a breath of fresh air and understated luxury to the shores of Abu Dhabi and is on the top list of new hotels openings in the UAE.

Surrounded by natural beauty, this contemporary beachfront resort occupies a stunning location on Saadiyat Island, overlooking 400 metres of protected sand dunes lapped by turquoise waters. Just 10 minutes from downtown Abu Dhabi and 20 minutes from Abu Dhabi International Airport, Saadiyat Island is undergoing a remarkable transformation into a world-class leisure, cultural and residential destination, eventually housing the world’s largest single concentration of premier cultural assets. These will include Guggenheim Abu Dhabi, the Zayed National Museum and the Louvre Abu Dhabi, which opened last year to international acclaim.

The Edition Abu Dhabi

The Edition Abu Dhabi, a unique hospitality concept that I have experienced throughout the world and my recent one in London, so my excitement for this specific hotel that is opening in 2018 in Abu Dhabi is with high expectations!
The hotel features 198 guest rooms and 57 exclusively serviced residences. The Edition Abu Dhabi promises unique food and beverage outlets include 2 signature restaurants, a gourmet market, lobby bar, pool bar and 3-story nightclub. Two pools, a state-of-the-art fitness center and spa with 7 treatment rooms are also available for hotel guests. The hotel also has over 900 square meters of meeting and event space including several meeting studios, ballrooms and boardrooms.

Sharjah Al Bait

When GHM raises the bar for luxury while preserving the heritage in Sharjah.  Al Bait Sharjah, the new luxury resort to be managed by General Hotel Management Ltd (GHM), is set to raise the bar for luxury hotel accommodation in the United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) cultural city while adding interest and vibrance to the historic inner-city precinct in which it is situated, when it opens at the end of this year.  Al Bait in Sharjah is part of the Emirate’s largest and most ambitious historical preservation and restoration project known as Heart of Sharjah.

It will be a 10,000-square-metre area in the hub of the Heart of Sharjah, its 53 luxury guestrooms and suites, hotel facilities and amenities, coexisting harmoniously with the several heritage buildings in the district.

W The Palm

Another one on the list for The Palm properties and for SPG, from 350 guest rooms and suites with uninterrupted views and dreamy amenities to the go-to glow and glamour of AWAY® Spa. W Dubai The Palm claims to be the first Escape in the Middle East redefines city getaways.

Mandarin Oriental Jumeirah

The Mandarin Oriental Jumeirah, is located in one of Dubai’s most prestigious neighbourhoods, the resort’s spacious rooms, suites and exceptional over-water villas enjoy a luxurious, contemporary feel with stunning city or ocean views. With eight restaurants and lounges, a destination spa and kids’ club, Mandarin Oriental Jumeirah, Dubai is the UAE’s most exciting new resort. With its inviting interiors, warm, California-style aesthetics and unmatched levels of service, Mandarin Oriental Jumeira, Dubai promises to bring a new wave of luxury to the shores of Dubai.

    All look spectacular. I got a feel for this prospering area of the Middle East last year. During a month long house sit in Doha, Qatar, I saw what a genuine abundance consciousness was about. Eye-popping, in many ways, because even amid wealth in places like NYC you do not see the opulence of a culture where showing off riches is a must. These hotels do a fine job displaying prosperity, I’d say.

  • I’ve been on the road a lot in Lebanon which has been an adventure on its own! The Infiniti Q30 2.0 has the navigation system with updated maps of Lebanon which made it easier to find my way around. It’s things like this I love the most about returning back here. Endless road trips with friends and despite Lebanon being so small, the adventures are endless! #infinitilebanon #Q30
  • Home sweet home ♥️ Spent the weekend dancing the night away and at the beach during the day!
How was your weekend?? 🇱🇧
  • Compassion is power. Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into the places of pain, fear and happiness. 
Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery and to smile with those who are happy. Compassion towards others is what makes me human and it’s a skill that I’ve learned to cultivate. And if you don’t have it, then it would be difficult for me to have you in my life. 
So this is a reminder to be good to each other today and to those you don’t know. God knows how many of us need it. 
Happy Saturday ♥️
  • Lake Chouwen - Lebanon 🇱🇧
A beautiful reserve, a 45 minutes hike and an adventurous location through Jabal Moussa! I even drove through the tiniest road into the mountains and was freaking out but made it through thanks to my co-pilot :)!
Lebanon is filled and surrounded with beautiful nature. 🇱🇧
Had an incredible day exploring Lebanon with @ramimansourr @mikhaelbitar @sarahdibrahim @abbas_kalel
  • Lebanon’s morning activities are filled with daily road trips across the mountains and the coast with close friends. Stopping by historical landmarks and eating the best zaatar in small villages. It also helps when your #infiniti car has BOSE sound-system 😊
Happy Tuesday everyone! 🇱🇧♥️ #Q30 #infinitilebanon
  • Good morning from home in Lebanon in Beit Douma. I can’t tell you how happy I am to be back in Lebanon!!! Have you ever been?

I’ve added an article on a guide to 9 guesthouses in Lebanon, you can click the link in my bio.
  • There really isn’t any better way to sail across Madeira Island than with Pedro and his gang! @rotadoscetaceos2016 We saw whales and swam with wild dolphins!!!! We jumped in the (freezing) Atlantic sea and went diving and discovered the most beautiful island 🌴 Now it’s your turn to go!
  • A beautiful slow morning in Madeira 🌴
Isn’t it beautiful?
  • I believe in giving people time...Time to process the good and the bad because there is something so beautiful about unforced bonds. 
I’m a forever kind of person. I don’t have room for temporary. I believe in big love, of growing old with your friends and soulmates. I believe in being there for people through thick and thin. I believe in not giving up when things get tough. I believe in relationships that can make it through everything.
  • It was sunny and we were heading to the pool in Lisbon when all of a sudden a little rain cloud passed and so decided to just walk out and get some pastel de nata 😊
  • Today, my mind is like a laptop set up. 
I have 20 tabs open, 4 of them are frozen and I have no idea where the music is coming from... 🤷🏼‍♀️ Dreaming of going back to Madeira 🌴
