Abu Dhabi continues to invest in tourism with 20 new hotel projects planned in the next three years.
Even more spectacular hotels are set to be built in the United Arab Emirates to compliment the iconic designs that are already part of the gulf skyline.
Dubai is known as the land of the seven-star hotel with the wave-shaped Jumeirah Beach Hotel and the Burj Al Arab instantly recognisable to many travellers.
However, according to TRI Hospitality Consulting, Abu Dhabi is set to be the site of a major hotel boom during the next three years.
Around 20 new projects are planned, including at least five Marriott hotels – with a 532-room Ritz Carlton and a 244-room Edition hotel among those set to be constructed.
Other firms also want a piece of the Abu Dhabi action with Rotana hoping to have work on a new resort finalised by 2015, reports Gulf News.
Abu Dhabi is continually investing in its hotels and recently picked up 36 honours at the World Travel Awards Middle East Gala 2012.
