The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal marks first anniversary with travel awards

Abu Dhabi’s newest landmark, The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal celebrated one year of successful operations with a highly coveted accolade from the travel industry’s leading publication. The luxury hotel in Abu Dhabi was named the best new business hotel in the world by Business Traveler magazine in its 25th Best in Business Travel Awards.

The resort is also the only UAE property on the list of Top 50 New Hotels in the World in the latest issue of Condé Nast Traveller Russia magazine.

Since opening its doors just one year ago, The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi has redefined luxury hospitality and service in the UAE capital as well as setting new benchmarks for a luxury resort in Abu Dhabi.

“It has been a very successful year for us and we are extremely proud of the positive response we received from Abu Dhabi community and from the global travellers,” states general manager, Pep Lozano. “Through continuous support of our owning company, Abu Dhabi National Hotels, and Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority, we were able to establish the hotel as a leader in the marketplace making it the first choice for both luxury leisure and business travellers visiting the Emirate.”

In honour of its first anniversary, The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi is extending a limited-time offer that includes an overnight stay for two guests in a spacious Deluxe room with a sumptuous buffet breakfast in Giornotte restaurant and that is valid every weekend in March.

Adjacent to the majestic Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and set amidst beautifully landscaped gardens with its own private beach, The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal features 447 luxurious guest rooms and suites, as well as 85 private one- and two-bedroom villas, 10 striking restaurants and lounges, a state-of-the-art health club, and one of the largest outdoor swimming pools in the region.
