Hilton Worldwide has introduced the first DoubleTree by Hilton hotel to Abu Dhabi. The announcement was made following the signing of a management agreement with Reliable Property Investment. 

The new hotel will be located at Masdar City in Abu Dhabi.  The 316-room DoubleTree by Hilton Abu Dhabi Masdar City will comply with the environmental ethos of Masdar and seek to secure the ‘Estidama 3-pearl’ rating.  Estidama, which is Arabic for sustainability, is the UAE equivalent to the globally-recognised LEED programme.

Rudi Jagersbacher, president, Hilton Worldwide Middle East & Africa said: “Masdar City in Abu Dhabi is developing into an exciting model of green living and with a strong and growing community of global businesses, residences and educational institutions. It is an ideal location for us.”

DoubleTree by Hilton Abu Dhabi Masdar City will feature a mix of rooms and suites with meeting and event space, a business centre and a choice of bars and restaurants. The hotel, which is scheduled to open early 2017, will also include an outdoor pool, a health club and Hilton Worldwide’s exclusive spa concept, Eforea.

According to Tourism Culture Authority for Abu Dhabi, Abu Dhabi for the first half of 2013 had guest arrivals from January-July topping 1.5 million – a 10% increase on the same period in 2012.
