In the myriad of luxury hotels that make up the United Arab Emirates, especially Abu Dhabi, few combine unabridged zen with a subtle sense of elevated luxury. In other words, a space where you feel so at basal peace that its opulence flies right over your head. Nobu, a worldwide elite hospitality concept, will help us forge our way to nirvana at Abu Dhabi’s budding cultural hub, Saadiyat Island, in 2026.
The Nobu Hotel & Beach Club is the result of a partnership with Aldar Developments, the leading developer of comprehensive thriving living solutions in the UAE and the Middle East, to put together an array of residential and touristic housing units on the powdery shore of Saadiyat. 

Hosting 164 spacious guest rooms and suites, and one exclusive Nobu villa, the hotel will decorate the Saadiyat coast with its sheer sense of serenity. A few metres from the hotel, and only a 7-minute drive from the heart of Abu Dhabi, stand the ultra-exclusive Nobu residencies, covering a range of sea view multi-bedroom units or panoramic views of the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi. 

Besides the engulfing luxurious amenities offered for visitors, as well as a range of swimming pools and a state-of-the-art health and wellness centre, Nobu also has many more perks to offer future residents, like exclusive access to Nobu-only events and an exceptionally high level of service. Not to mention the island’s existing attractions: a white beach that plays host to a population of critically endangered Hawksbill sea turtles and free-roaming gazelles, as well as a wide variety of museums and cultural centres. 
Topping the news off is the introduction of the notoriously elite Nobu dining experience, bringing the chain’s carefully concocted famed Japanese-Peruvian fusion concept for an unprecedented height to luxury dining in the UAE. This time, the restaurant is going as far as adding Emirati cuisine into the mix, which will be paired with stunning views of the Saadiyat shore, mirroring the famous Nobu Malibu.
