Indulge in five-star hospitality, dining, shopping, spa treatments and views at this glittering multi-towered oasis in Abu Dhabi.
Glittering like jewels on the Abu Dhabi skyline is Etihad Towers, a cluster of five soaring towers that contain some of the world’s most lavish spas, stores, restaurants and hotel suites. Come for a week of pure indulgence, or simply spend a few hours window shopping and taking in the incredible beachfront views.
The dramatic sculptural forms of the Etihad Towers echo the rich desert and seafaring traditions of the Arab World. The gentle arcing curves of the towers resemble scimitar blades and the billowing sails of wooden dhows.
Start your visit at the podium, which offers expansive views over the surrounding oasis of gardens, pools and a beach. The podium contains two levels of luxury shopping. The second floor, Avenue, contains 35 high-end boutiques featuring some of the world’s most celebrated designers and brands. When it’s time for a break, head to the first-floor markets to indulge in an array of gourmet foods.
Treat yourself to a few nights in the Jumeirah Hotel, 66 levels of five-star opulence. Relax in the sleek modern designs of its elegant rooms and suites, some of which offer 360-degree views. Even if you’re not staying in the hotel, take the elevator and share an evening drink at the Observation Deck 300 for one of the most breathtaking sunset panoramas in the city.
Book into the Jumeirah Spa for one of the many singles, couples and ritual packages. Once you’re suitably relaxed, head off to dinner in one of the 12 restaurants, which are spread throughout the towers from the poolside to 62 floors up. With restaurants specializing in the flavors of France, Japan and beyond, you’ll be sure to find a spectacular meal with views to match.
Etihad Towers is situated in the beachside district of Al Ras Al Akhdar, at the western end of The Corniche, just opposite the Emirates Palace. Taxis will drop you off and pick you up at the main reception concourse.
