As part of the Art Basel Inside experience, we have chosen three exceptional hotels for every taste, distinguished by their unmatched vistas, noteworthy amenities, and encapsulation of the region’s beauty, heritage, and modernity. Each hotel in this world-class trio offers state-of-the-art design, concierge services, and comfort while providing a rich introduction to the singular location of Abu Dhabi.
The Abu Dhabi EDITION
The Abu Dhabi EDITION opened in November 2018 and is one of ten international properties conceived by the famed hotelier Ian Schrager and Marriott International. This kinetic, design-forward hotel overlooks Al Bateen Marina and offers a sophisticated palette of gray oak timber and dappled marble throughout each of its 198 guest rooms. Elegant, herringbone-patterned wood floors draw inspiration from local Emirati basket weaving techniques. The Abu Dhabi EDITION also features three signature restaurants conceived by Michelin-starred chef Tom Aikens, a lobby bar, pool bar, two pools, and cutting-edge fitness center and spa.

This award-winning, five-star hotel is adjacent to Qasr Al Watan, Abu Dhabi’s presidential palace. Its opulent design features a dramatic mix of Arabian architectural elements, including a grand dome with elaborate geometric patterns, lavish interiors trimmed in gold and marble, and a statement-making exterior inspired by desert sands. The hotel offers 394 rooms, a pristine private beach, landscaped pools, and a private marina overlooking a natural bay and spa.

Jumeirah at Etihad Towers
Jumeirah at Etihad Towers is located on the western end of the Corniche waterfront and encompasses five striking towers that reach into the Abu Dhabi skyline. The lobby is encased by a soaring glass atrium with Swarovski crystal-studded chandeliers, and each of the 382 rooms is luxuriously appointed with refined furnishings and floral motifs. Magnificent and modern, the hotel offers white-glove service, 12 restaurants, three swimming pools, a private beach, and an observation deck with stunning, 360-degree views from the city’s highest vantage point.
