Fairmont now selling Abu Dhabi Marina residences
Sales at Fairmont Marina Residences, opening in 2016, aimed purely at UAE nationals
Fairmont Hotels & Resorts has begun selling residences at an Abu Dhabi development which will sit alongside its upcoming Fairmont Marina Resort.
Set to open in 2016, the 563-room hotel will sit in one of two towers close to the Marina Mall at Abu Dhabi Breakwater.
The second tower will house the Fairmont Marina Residences, which will have a total of 249 residences. Sales at the National Investment Corporation-owned property are being aimed purely at UAE nationals.
FRHI senior vice president, operations, MEAI Sami Nasser said: “This is an extremely exciting mixed-use development project in one of the fastest growing markets in the region. Given the success we’ve enjoyed at Fairmont Bab Al Bahr, we are delighted to be expanding our footprint in Abu Dhabi with a development that combines luxury residences and a five-star hotel.
“FRHI has exceptionally strong residential expertise and we are committed to our goal of being the preferred mixed-use hotel and residential operator in the UAE and beyond.”
The operator says it sees the project as a springboard for plans to double its number of properties, including residential options, in the region over the next five years.
Residences in the new property will range from 100 square meters one bedroom apartments, to four bedroom apartments which cover more than 300 square meters.
À la carte services such as housekeeping, childcare, grocery shopping and a private chef on demand will all be available to residents, who will also get membership in the invitation-only tier of the FRHI’s guest recognition and loyalty programme.
Meanwhile, the adjoining Fairmont resort will have nine restaurants and lounges, Fairmont Gold rooms and lounge situated in the bridge between the hotel and residences, meeting and function space, and a business centre.
It will also feature an infinity swimming pool, kids club, fitness centre and a spa, and the entire development, including the residences, will cover approximately 155,000 square metres, including an extensive water frontage.
