Accor signs deal to open Rixos Abu Dhabi Marina

The hospitality group now has 420 hotels across India, the Middle East, Africa and Turkey

Accor is expanding its luxury portfolio with the opening of its fourth Rixos property in the UAE in Q3 2022.

Rixos Marina Abu Dhabi's design will be inspired by the UAE's cultural heritage of fishing and pearl diving, presented through 21st-century aesthetics, complimented by striking ocean views.

Since joining forces in 2017, it has been a priority for Accor and Rixos to take on new opportunities to strengthen the brand’s footprint across the Middle East and wider region. 

Rixos is a hospitality brand whose expertise lies in its 'ultra-all-inclusive' concept, with a vibrant atmosphere and family-friendly facilities.

We couldn’t think of a better brand than Rixos to bring a new all-inclusive luxury resort to the marina of Abu Dhabi.” 

Located on the man-made breakwater Abu Dhabi Marina, Rixos Abu Dhabi Marina will share facilities with the Fairmont Marina Residences.
