UAE: The Hyatt Capital Gate Abu Dhabi is to be rebranded later this year, becoming the first Andaz property in the Middle East.
Known as the “leaning tower of Abu Dhabi”, the hotel is owned by Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (Adnec) and sits within the Capital Centre district. It will become the Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi.
It will feature a permanent art collection and “various examples of unique craftsmanship such as Khatt calligraphy art and local, traditional Sadu weaving.
“We are extremely excited to introduce the Andaz brand to the Middle East,” said Humaid Matar Al Dhaheri, group chief executive of Adnec. “As each Andaz hotel pays homage to its location, Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi will do so by incorporating local art, which will take guests on a journey into the UAE’s vibrant history and culture. A permanent art collection in the hotel will reflect the indigenous culture and evolution of UAE life, featuring the work of both Emirati and local artists.”
