The Abu Dhabi Plaza


The Abu Dhabi Plaza, also referred to as The Central Markets is the newest multi-faceted, multi-purpose gem in Abu Dhabi.

Launched by Aldar Property and designed by Foster Partners, this development was unveiled in 2007 as the newest addition to the Central Markets Redevelopment Project.

The concept was sparked by a desire to recapture the ambience of a busy marketplace complete with pleasingly esthetic gardens and stained glass that allow for a wonderful flood of sunlight.

What then is the Abu Dhabi Plaza? 

The Abu Dhabi Plaza is an architectural masterpiece consisting of  a staggered matrix of buildings with leisure, retail and hotel groupings at the base rising to towers housing office and residential structures that fill the skyline. 

A new landmark on Astana’s skyline, the hotel is situated along Astana’s “green axis, incorporating a series of year-round winter gardens. 

The clever architecture allows the channeling of light within the midst of the buildings creating a pleasingly sheltered route for pedestrians. 

The interwoven network of buildings creates a thermal insulation during the colder months.  Colored laminated glass panels adorn the building’s facade creating a dynamic play on lights and patterns.  The design concept is both beautiful and functional allowing the structure to harness heat. 

Why is the hotel such a popular choice amongst tourists?  Well positioned within minutes of the famous Abu Dhabi Corniche, Marina mall and many key businesses makes it a very popular choice for visitors. 

The Plaza has achieved a 5-star rating due to its friendly and very professional staff, beautifully appointed rooms, impressive business features and 18-metre rooftop pool with views towering over the city skyline. 

Additional amenities include a fully equipped fitness center, steam room and sauna.  The hotel also provides a complimentary shuttle service to and from the nearby Marina Mall. 

I suppose you may be thinking, “this sounds awfully expensive”.  Happily I’d like to put your mind at ease and tell you that the Plaza is smartly priced at 873.0 (AED) or $237.750 USD/176.726 EUR for a King, non-smoking, high floor suite. 

At this price you don’t have to be a sheik to afford two nights in the lap of luxury.  Whether you are a business traveler or the average tourist The Central Markets Gem is certainly an experience that you won’t want to miss.
