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.

  • Home at Beit Douma, this is how a traditional restored 19th century Lebanese mountain home looks like from the inside. Douma is one of the best-preserved villages in Lebanon, lies at an altitude of over 1000 meters.  The name in Phoenician means “calm and rest”, in Greek it means “house”. 🇱🇧 #Home
  • 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... 💫
  • Will probably delete this later but just couldn’t NOT post this video! I’ve always dreamed raising a golden retriever since I was a little girl, and in February, it became a reality. This was Charlie at 3 months and slide over the photo number 2, today at 8 months. 2 more weeks and I’ll be back with him!!! Share your advices on raising a Golden ❤️ I would love to hear your experiences.
  • I read once that some people have the ability to magnetize the people they need to help push them even further into greatness. Some take them for granted, some don't see it because they are too blind. But for those who can see it, be grateful for it, because even if you think you don't need them, one day you might understand the chemistry 💕
  • Bird’s eye view from @joalimaldives 
I can never get bored of this view! 😍
  • In reality, if you really think about it, to miss someone is sort of missing a part of yourself. You miss the way you felt alive on adventures and sharing ideas... Because the right people make you want to throw away the plans you originally had, for a new one without having to say ‘hmm’ and it’s no longer forcing things... it’s been a while since I looked back at some memories in S.E Asia, It taught me so much, but also, it’s a chapter of my life that I feel I’ve closed a long time ago.
  • Passion and inspiration are so very powerful and can easily be intimidating and out of reach sometimes. 
I haven’t been able to pick up my camera yet... Which is odd because, my camera is my source of ‘connection’ to almost everything. 
Sometimes you’re just not ready... And I’m not going to push myself. I’ll try again tomorrow 😊
  • Once upon a time in Kenya 🇰🇪- I’m trying really hard remembering their names, but all that comes to mind is Sophie, I’m sure one of them is called Sophie... Not sure why? Don’t you think? 😊 
Have an incredible weekend everyone 💕
  • Sunrise in Madeira Island. 
It’s been a while since I felt inspired to pick up my camera and go. Maybe it’s the fact that, despite my love for the long summers and flip flops, I’m ready for the unknown, the Scandinavian winters, the daring adventures & new beginnings. 
I’m ready for the sleepless nights under the northern lights and the exceptional early pink sunrises. Someone special told me to learn to be where my feet is... to be present where I am at the moment... Possibly the best advice I’ve heard in a long time, but, this caption refutes it. 😊 I’ll try again tomorrow 💕
  • Not long before the grand re-opening of @gili.lankanfushi in Maldives. The island is close to my heart and we cannot wait to celebrate the opening on the 1st of December 🏖
  • At an altitude of 1800 meters... Ixsir winery in Lebanon is one of the popular winery in the country. Their Winery was named by CNN as one of the greenest building in the world, and lately won the international A+ Award. 🇱🇧
  • Looking back at some photos this morning. This was taken 3 years ago in Seychelles at @fsseychelles - Definitely one of the best views I’ve seen during my travels.
