With the property’s structural framing now complete, Four Seasons Hotel Abu Dhabi is on track to open in the second quarter of 2016, according to the luxury operator.

The last concrete pillar on the roof of the five-star hotel was cemented at a ceremony attended by senior executives from Four Seasons and Mubadala Development Company on Saturday, according to the Abu Dhabi investment and development company behind Al Maryah Island.

On completion, the 34-floor hotel will feature 190 hotel guestrooms, 54 serviced apartments and 1290 square metres of meeting and conference facilities.

It will also have a rooftop pool and 300 square metre garden looking over Al Maryah Island's waterfront promenade.

"Four Seasons Abu Dhabi is another important component of Al Maryah Island's already dynamic offering,” said Mubadala Real Estate & Infrastructure executive director Ali Eid AlMheiri.

“Located next to the central office buildings and The Galleria, and near to Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, as well as new developments such as Al Maryah Central, the Four Seasons Hotel Abu Dhabi will be ideally situated for its guests to enjoy the best that Al Maryah Island has to offer."

The hotel is set to become the second under the Four Seasons brand in the UAE, joining a resort which had its grand opening this month in Dubai.

However, the company has already hinted at the likelihood of opening a second, more business-focused, hotel in the emirate.

"The Four Seasons Hotel Abu Dhabi will set a new standard in hospitality, combining elegant and spacious accommodation with five-star facilities in an architecturally stunning building,” said regional vice president and general manager of the Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach Simon Casson.

Al Maryah Island is an integrated, 114-hectare mixed-use development in the centre of Abu Dhabi, and has been designated as Abu Dhabi's Central Business District. It aims to follow in the footsteps of 24-hour financial districts around the world.

Construction teams working on Four Seasons Hotel Abu Dhabi will now focus on the completion of the façade and internal components of the property.
