Luxury Residential Development, Part of an Iconic Mixed-use Development is Offered for Sale Exclusively to UAE Nationals; Distinctive Tower will be an Abu Dhabi Landmark
Fairmont Hotels & Resorts has announced that the 249 residences in the eagerly anticipated Fairmont Marina Residences are now available for purchase.
Occupants of the premium residences will enjoy exclusive access to the guest facilities and services available in the luxurious Fairmont Marina Resort, Abu Dhabi which will form the rest of the unique development.
Set to debut in 2016, the fully furnished residences and 563 hotel guestrooms will reside in two iconic towers which meet in a magnificent arch. The distinctively designed skyscraper, close to the Marina Mall at Abu Dhabi Breakwater will offer panoramic views of the Arabian Gulf, the Corniche and the city’s famous skyline.
FRHI Hotels & Resorts (FRHI), the luxury hotel brand’s parent company, sees it as a landmark project which will act as a springboard for ambitious expansion plans to double the number of properties, including residential options, in the region over the next five years.
Sami Nasser, senior vice president, operations, MEAI at FRHI, 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 Fairmont Marina Residences are elegant, sophisticated and fully-furnished homes, ranging from 100 square meters for a one bedroom apartment to over 300 square meters for a four bedroom apartment with high quality furniture, fabrics and designs that reflect local heritage and cultural influences. They will serve as a primary dwelling or a getaway retreat through all seasons, and will become a legacy for generations to come.
À la carte residential services such as housekeeping, childcare, grocery shopping and even a private chef on demand are part of this luxury lifestyle experience. To further enhance these offerings, all Fairmont residents will enjoy exclusive membership in the invitation-only tier of the company’s guest recognition and loyalty program, which includes VIP status and access to special benefits at FRHI properties worldwide (includes the Fairmont, Raffles, and Swissôtel brands).
The owning company National Investment Corporation (NIC) provided the following statement: “The initial interest in the Fairmont Marina Residences development has been tremendous amongst Abu Dhabi residents. We anticipate strong demand for these luxury residences which combines the best of city living and a breathtaking location with unrivalled lifestyle benefits offered by a signature hospitality brand. This attractive real estate option complements our existing projects in the Breakwater area, and we look forward to working with Fairmont, a brand synonymous with personalized and thoughtful service.”
With a prime location on Abu Dhabi’s Breakwater, the development will occupy an overall area of approximately 155,000 square meters, including an extensive water frontage. Residents and hotel guests will enjoy convenient access to the neighboring Marina Mall, which is undergoing a massive expansion that will see it grow to two-and-a-half times its current size.
Fairmont Marina Resort will feature 563 guestrooms and suites, nine restaurants and lounges, Fairmont Gold rooms and lounge situated atop as the bridge between the hotel and residences, state-of-the-art meeting and function space, and a business centre. Leisure offerings include an infinity swimming pool, kids club, fitness center and a spa. Fairmont Marina Resort will complement a robust portfolio of operating Fairmont hotels in UAE, including nearby sister hotel Fairmont Bab Al Bahr which opened in October 2009.
Fairmont Marina Residences is the most recent addition to FRHI’s exclusive and growing collection of private residences in locations around the world including Istanbul, Dubai, Makkah, Jeddah, Manila, and Vancouver.
