Newly opened ‘Leaning Tower of Abu Dhabi’ hotel marks the regional debut of Hyatt’s Andaz brand


Hyatt Hotels Corporation officially opened Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi last month, turning the iconic ‘Leaning Tower of Abu Dhabi’ into the first Andaz hotel in the Middle East. Represented across the globe in destinations including London, New York, Tokyo and Shanghai, Hyatt’s luxury lifestyle brand celebrates distinctively local culture and delivers an elevated experience that awakens the senses. Aligned with the brand ethos of authentically bringing the local neighbourhood to life, Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi offers inspiring experiences, helping guests immerse themselves in their surroundings and feel like a local from the moment they arrive.

 “As we weave in the sights, sounds and tastes of the local Abu Dhabi culture, the opening of Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi marks a significant milestone for Hyatt, reinforcing its standing with visitors and residents of the city,” said Stuart Deeson, hotel general manager and area vice president for Hyatt Abu Dhabi, Egypt and Jordan. “The city’s abundant history and culture is reflected throughout the property, most notably in its artistic representation. Exemplified through thoughtful design and the addition of a permanent art collection, the property celebrates the spirit and culture of the United Arab Emirates.”

Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi occupies floors 18 to 33 within the iconic Capital Gate building and is the world’s furthest leaning hotel at an impressive 18-degree incline. Synonymous with the brand’s intention to immerse guests in the local culture, the property takes guests on a journey through the United Arab Emirates’ unique identity.

At each touchpoint, guests can discover the stories of four cultural symbols appreciated by locals for generations, chosen for the power and respect they command within Emirati culture. These symbols include ‘Mashrabiya’, intricate wooden window adornments; ‘Khatt’, poetic Islamic calligraphy; ‘Al Sadu’, traditionally woven fabrics; and iconic Date Palms motifs.

All aspects of the 189 contemporary, luxurious guestrooms and suites have been designed for today’s traveller and exude a sense of warm Arabian hospitality. Floor to ceiling glass panelled windows offer sweeping views of the city, and each guestroom is outfitted with specially curated amenities. 

The sense of creativity and local influence celebrated by the Andaz brand extends to each of the dining outlets situated within the property. The restaurant, 18 Degrees, offers diners the chance to savour delicacies from across the Mediterranean, using fresh, local produce. The spa is equally influenced by the region.
