The Escape | The Abu Dhabi EDITION

2pm: Arrive at the hotel and check into one of the 198 rooms on offer. BAZAAR recommends asking for a Marina-view to make the most of your escape.

2.30pm: Once you’re settled, head to straight to the spa to truly wind down for the weekend. An extensive menu of body treatments and facials target everything from aching muscles to cellulite and ageing skin. Press play on the video below to see BAZAAR try out the Tibetan Sound Healing treatment at the hotel's spa. 

6pm: Now you’ve reached peak relaxation, it’s time to gussy up and head to Library Bar for an aperitif before dinner. The sophisticated space is imbued with literary art on the walls and cocktails that draws upon themes of language and the written word.

7.30pm: The Oak Room steakhouse plays host to your evening meal – and with Tom Aikens in charge of the food, expectations are high. The interiors are impossibly chic with a side of rock’n’roll, thanks to vintage photographs depicting the likes of Jagger and Bowie adorning the wall. Succulent steaks and speciality sides are on the menu, followed by very British desserts, including the must-try English trifle.

Did we mention the restuarant has its own meat sommelier? Yup. 

10pm: Nightcaps happen over at Annex, the hotel’s three-story entertainment venue and best in town for a late night soirée. Post-midnight, the lights go down, the music goes up and the energy in the Annex goes off the scale.

Around in October? Mark 18 in your calendars, because Arab hip-hop act Sons of Yusuf will be taking over the club for one night only. 


2am: You’ve danced the night away and are ready for the humungous duck down bed to swallow you up for the most well-rested night you’re likely to have all week.

9am: Market at Edition is the health-focused all-day dining establishment where breakfast dishes are about as delicious as they come. Chilli scrambled eggs or a good old fashioned avocado toast is the order of the day, all washed down with a creamy cappuccino.

10am: The pool at Abu Dhabi EDITION catches the best sun in the morning, so head straight there after breakfast to luxuriate and laze in the cool water.
