After a three year break and a US $100 million renovation, one of Abu Dhabi’s longest running hotels, Ain Al Fayadha, will re-open this month in Al Ain, the emirate’s heritage heartland.
Managed by One To One hotels, the 36km² One To One Resort - Ain Al Fayadha - will open in two phases. The first will include 56 luxury one and two bedroom villas as well as a signature, contemporary restaurant set on a meandering boating lake.
Phase two, which is scheduled for end of June, will see the re-opening of the 26-room boutique 4 -star hotel, two additional restaurants, spa, gymnasium, salon, three swimming pools, children’s playground, tennis, volleyball and football pitches and a traditional 1,000 seater Arabic tent for socialising, eating and relaxing in the lee of the Jebel Hafeet, the emirate’s highest outcrop. A dedicated camel and horse race track is also in the second phase, and will be open to the public and guests.
A study is also being undertaken to turn the current duck pond into a fish reserve, allowing guests to catch their dinner and have it prepared at one of the hotel’s restaurants. And a golf course is also being developed on site to complement the resort’s offering and is expected to open this summer.
