Abu Dhabi National Hotels (ADNH) said on Tuesday it is planning to create a Venetian Village which will focus on alfresco dining in a waterfront setting.

Situated within the Ritz Carlton Grand Canal development, Venetian Village will span 20,000 sq m and will feature six restaurants making their debut in Abu Dhabi, crossing culinary borders with cuisines ranging from Mediterranean to Emirati and Japanese.

Venetian Village will also be home to the Ritz Carlton's spa, a 2,000 sq m space dedicated to therapeutic luxury, the company said in a statement.

The project will feature distinct architecture, inspired by the Renaissance and urban planning of the city of Venice, the statement added.

Julide Ozbilge Nuss, manager of food and beverages assets - ADNH, said: "The Venetian Village is more than just a collection of restaurants - it will bring a fresh ambience and attitude to the ever evolving dining scene in Abu Dhabi.

"Guests can expect to see some exciting international names coming to the UAE for the very first time - both in terms of chefs and restaurant concepts - and the destination will offer a convivial, vibrant atmosphere, creating an experience beyond the exquisite cuisine.

"Ultimately, Venetian Village will cater to a niche in the Abu Dhabi market that has yet to be fulfilled, presenting an eclectic and diverse mix of dining options, a lively environment, and beautiful Italian architecture, all in one spectacular beachfront location."

The Venetian Village restaurants will be designed by renowned international designers from the global restaurant industry, he said without giving details about when the village would open.

It is good to know that an Emirati restaurant is opening in this location. I really do hope it is Al Fanar (From Dubai Festival City) that is coming to Abu Dhabi. Al Fanar is the true pinnacle of emirati food.
