This is the building from afar. Some of you may be familiar with it but don’t know what it is. So it is both a hotel (Hyatt Capital Gate) and an exhibition centre (ADNEC) at the base of the building.
I had the opportunity to stay here on my last few days in Abu Dhabi. I normally enjoy a more “flat” layout style of hotel (like the Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel & Villas which I wrote about here and here)
But this stylishly ‘crooked’ property did not fail to take my breath away. Let me show you why.
First off, the hotel and lobby interiors. I am in love with the chandeliers and hanging lights design. They seem to be floating so it gives you the feeling you are kind of underwater!
It’s picture heavy but it won’t do it justice if I made the above photos into a collage. I just love the recurring floating lights theme throughout the hotel. It’s not overly done yet grand enough to give that extraordinary ambience.
I stayed at the lead in category room yet that alone was impressive. All rooms have floor to ceiling windows so you get an impressive view. And I’m starting to love the glass partitions/walk through feature of bathrooms that seem to be a growing trend among newer hotels.
The room next to mine is a suite, and this is what the bedroom looked like
And the exterior, along with the hotel pool:
In the lounge area there’s this reading nook, and I love the design, I want one for my own house one day!
Hyatt Capital Gate is a popular choice for business and government travellers. Embassies and consulates are located near this area. It is also popular for conference venues, with the ADNEC being just below the hotel.

WOW! They really do have a love of lighting and not just a simple chandelier here and there!
