Eastern Mangroves hotel & spa in Abu Dhabi is another luxury resort by Antara. The moderm Architecture and the wealth furnishing make it an paradise in the world.
Although the property is designed as a business hotel, it functions much more as a city resort, offering a luxurious sense of space and natural light unique to its category.
While the hotel’s architectural style is modern, inspiration has been drawn from Arabic design, so features include arches, mashrabiyas and timber trellises; views of the stunning natural surroundings are utilised through thoughtfully placed windows. During the process of designing the hotel, Arabic lifestyle elements were taken into serious consideration; features relating to this include the provision of private dining areas in the F&B outlets, Middle East Interiors learned.
The hotel’s lobby is an expansive and grand entry to the property featuring high ceilings and wide spaces with a feature water fountain. On entry to the hotel, the views out across the Mangroves is clear through the floor to ceiling windows directly in front of the entrance.
“The lobby aims to convey a combination of both tradition and contemporary design, with Arabic design and arches with the contemporary chandelier hanging from the ceiling. To complement this, the lobby’s colour palette features simple, classic and natural tones, keeping in tune with the nature that surrounds it, which are enlivened by the furnishings and fixtures,” Garrett-Otter explains.
Turn to go to the elevators and you’re faced with a series of infinity arches, which not only stretch all the way to the far end of the corridor, but are also reflected in the polished marbogranite floors. Once again, the sense of timelessness takes over.
All through the hotel are neatly designed lighting fixtures, from wrought metal and crystal chandeliers to simple cylindrical pendants and modern chandeliers of suspended glass bubbles, the aim being to make lighting a form of art throughout the hotel.
