New GREC-designed resort at the Abu Dhabi Golf Club breaks ground

Construction efforts are ramping up on a new resort hotel complex at the Abu Dhabi Golf Club, just outside of the UAE capital. Designed by GREC Architects, the project includes new luxury hotel accommodation, residential apartments and a host of amenities.

Conceived in a modern ‘wellness’ style, the project focuses on the award-winning tournament golf course, but amenities are not limited to golf-centered activities. Several themed restaurants, ballrooms, business and meeting facilities, pools and an extensive spa form a small resort campus. Thoughtful, contemporary detailing and elegant spatial arrangements create a sophisticated ambiance. Lush greenery and an extensive network of cooling water features provide a relaxed, comfortable environment, both inside and out.

The resort is due for completion in the third quarter of next year.
