Sneak Peek: Rocco Forte Hotel Abu Dhabi

  • Amanda Millin

The first Rocco Forte property located outside of Europe and the first of three in the Middle East, the Rocco Forte Hotel Abu Dhabi opened November 7. The luxury British brand’s 13th hotel conveniently neighbors the capital city’s private and international airports, the spiraled exhibition center, and Yas Island, home to theme parks, golf courses, and a Formula One Grand Prix track. With 11 stories of wave-shaped blue and green glass, the 281-room hotel, with an introductory rate of $330 per night, has a spa with a traditional wet and dry hammam, four restaurants, and two bars with another one opening next month. Two pools, one indoors and one out, ensure guests will stay cool in the desert heat. (888.667.9477, www.roccofortehotelabudhabi.com)
