Rocco Forte Hotel Abu Dhabi Only GCC Property Recognised in Condé Nast Traveller Hot List 2012

The Rocco Forte Hotel Abu Dhabi is the only hotel in the GCC to be recognized as one of the 60 best new openings around the world for 2012, by world-renowned travel publication Condé Nast Traveller. 

As the single regional recipient of the Hot List accolade, despite a flurry of new hotels opening in the Middle East, the Rocco Forte Hotel Abu Dhabi is glowingly described: “The blue-green, wave-shaped shaft of Sir Rocco Forte’s first hotel in the Middle East shimmers proudly…Forte’s focus on quality service rings out loud throughout his Arabian outpost: staff members greet you in the corridor; cocktail-makers shake, slice and pour with more determination than Bond mid-chase; butlers are available to unpack your suitcase and pour a bath.”  In the last few months, business and leisure travellers from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Lebanon, Egypt and other key markets have experienced the Rocco Forte Hotel Abu Dhabi, alongside conferences and weddings. The brand will open four further hotels in the region in the coming five years.
