Abu Dhabi is the capital city and largest of the seven emirates that make up the UAE. The island capital is located on the north-eastern part of the Arabian Gulf. It is less than 250 meters from the mainland and is joined to the mainland by a series of bridges including Maqta and Mussafah bridges. Year-round sunshine, pristine beaches, spectacular sand dunes and a vibrant cosmopolitan atmosphere await visitors to Abu Dhabi. These, combined with distinctive Arabian hospitality, mystique and a world-class infrastructure make Abu Dhabi an enchanting destination to visit for business or leisure. The waterfront hotel is located on Al Maryah Island at the prestigious Sowwah Square, facing the iconic exchange building. The island occupies a unique location at a midpoint between Abu Dhabi’s existing downtown district, the upcoming developments at Al Reem Island and Mina Zayed, and the new cultural district on Saadiyat Island.

Rosewood Abu Dhabi’s art collection
Throughout its history, Rosewood Hotels and Resorts has commissioned and collected art specific to each of its individual locations, in the process anchoring each property in its surroundings and demonstrating support for the community. Going beyond the intent of mere decoration, the art collection at Rosewood Abu Dhabi plays a fundamental role in shaping the identity of the hotel. Created by local, regional and international artists, the 280 pieces explore similar themes. Their commonalities include veils of pigments and layers of pure shimmering color, with designs emerging like waves of crystalline fabrics hovering across the canvas. The collection is a reflection of the natural environment and traditional designs of the region through an accumulation of impressions and rich interpretations.
Blending Eastern and Western contemporary works of art, the art program at Rosewood Abu Dhabi reinforces Abu Dhabi’s mission to become the leading arts and culture hub in the region.
