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.

Scheduled to open in 2019

    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.

  • Happy whatever f**** day it is 🤷‍♀️
  • Someone said to me “The strong woman you are becoming will cost you people, relationships, spaces, outings and material things. Always choose her over everything!” And so, I did. 💫
  • I’ve always thought you should be able to freeze time... This way you could hit the pause button at a really good point in your life so that nothing changes. 
Being in the Arctic. Pause. 
Happy Sunday 💫
  • I read something today that says “what you hide in your heart... shows in your eyes” and I smiled. I’m counting down the days to be able to say, we made it through the storm. 
I’m optimistic about our future and the future of our business... and pray we all find that place of peace where the chaos inside of us is understood... Whoever you are, wherever you are.

  • In the midst of chaos with what’s happening around the world, I hope you always find the courage to keep living and love deeply in a world that is slowly failing to do so... 💫
  • Before taking off on our TJD series, I got the chance to enjoy a family break at Zaya Nurai thanks to @experiencemuse. MUSE had curated this bespoke experience, knowing that part of unwinding for me, is spending quality time with my family. Can’t wait to meet our new guest travelers in Finland!  #experienceMUSE
  • “The question is not how to get cured, but how to live... for she was always fighting a battle but her smile would never tell you so... and that’s how she created Neverland”
  • ‘When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes.
When you get photograph people in black and white, you photograph their soul’

Probably will delete this... but for now... I’m loving it.
  • What makes you happy? They say that every time you are happy, you are on your path. So be aware of the moments where you feel the most happiest... and hold on to it 💫
  • Shoutout to all the shy, introverted, empathic, social awkward souls who are pushing past their comfort zone to share love with the world and detaching themselves from fearful thoughts and using their energy to believe instead of worrying. 👊🏻
  • Due to popular demand, we have decided to launch yet another @travelwithtjd trip last minute on the 26-30th March 2020!! Chasing the Northern lights on an adventure of a lifetime to end the winter season!
For those who missed out on all our groups for March in Finland. This one’s for you! Message me to get more info!! See you in the North!
  • This morning, woke up thinking a lot about all the beautiful risks I’ve took to get to where I am. Incredible partnerships along the way to make @travelwithtjd a reputable and trusted travel brand to create realities. I’m not even halfway there, but my momentum is as strong as ever, keeping only one thing in mind... the success and joy TJD has brought to me and so many others. 
I’d also like to take this opportunity in my post to genuinely thank @wegoarabia a platform I always use to compare my ticket prices to get to those far far away places up North and for being such an incredible partner to TJD. If you haven’t downloaded the app yet, do it, it will save you a lot of money and time while booking those flights, especially routes like Svalbard. 
Thank you to everyone who is constantly supporting my dream. 
And, thank you @dennisstever for the beautiful photo. 💫#TravelwithTJD #CreateYourReality
