Al Wathba Desert Resort & Spa is all set to join the Luxury Collection from Marriott following its departure from the Jumeirah Group in March this year. Located just a 30-minute drive from the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, the property is situated deep within the expansive landscape of Abu Dhabi.
The resort offers 103 guest rooms and villas featuring traditional Arabesque flourishes, mashrabiya detailing, and Bedouin accessories. Inspired by native architecture and the destination’s rich history, the villas come with spacious indulgence, private plunge pools and a patio that boasts unlimited views of the surrounding Arabian Desert. The interior presents neutral tones that perfectly blend with the desert landscape that wraps around the extraordinary property.
The design gives a vibes of a historic desert village, and presents to guests a retreat immersed with natural beauty, unique tranquillity, and rare experiences. Guido De Wilde, Chief Operating Officer, Middle East, Marriott International said in a statement that the company is delighted to welcome Al Wathba, Desert Resort & Spa to its ensemble of hotels that define the destination and offer global explorers an authentic desert experience alongside warm Arabian hospitality.
He added that Abu Dhabi’s legacy as an international cultural destination with a rich history and heritage, together with the diversity of its dramatic landscapes, offers a unique opportunity for the brand to guide guests on transformative journeys that touch their spirits and enrich their lives.
