Enjoy an elevated experience and a slice of Abu Dhabi’s renowned hospitality at the sky-reaching Jumeirah at Etihad Towers   


Overlooking the glistening Arabian Gulf and the city’s cosmopolitan corniche, the 69-storey Jumeirah at Etihad Towers offers views to write home about. If you’ve a head for heights, a visit to the hotel’s Observation Deck at 300 is a must. The city’s highest vantage point, it offers a panoramic view of the skyline.

The view from the guestrooms is equally breathtaking, with a choice of city skyline or coastal views complementing stylish furnishings and a raft of in-room technology. The suites here rank among the finest in the city: even their bathrooms afford widescreen views of Abu Dhabi. As the hotel’s largest, the Royal Etihad Suite can accommodate up to eight adults and four children, while all suites include butler service and a personalised check-in service. 


Its lofty standing aside, the property also excels at downtime. There are multiple dining outlets, a pristine private beach and the award-winning Talise Spa, home to 13 treatment rooms and myriad experiences that can be tailored to suit your needs. Other amenities include a hi-tech Six P Gym, as well as three swimming pools. 

If you’re flying in for business, consider choosing a room with access to the Club Executive Lounge. Open from 7am until midnight, the lounge offers all-day refreshments, the use of laptops and a meeting room that can be used for quiet time or catching up with colleagues.

BiCE is one of the UAE’s standout Italian restaurants, while the award-winning Tori No Su is the city’s go-to spot for lauded Japanese dishes.
