Rosewood Hotel Abu Dhabi has introduced a selection of new offerings and experiences as part of the Rosewood brand-wide Summer Immerse programming.
As part of this new initiative, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts around the world are introducing a collection of activities and adventures designed to help guests awaken their senses, broaden their horizons, and go deeper into the destinations around the world.
At the forefront of current trends in luxury travel, Rosewood’s Summer Immerse experiences have been thoughtfully created for those who are eager to hit the road as the world enters a new era of exploration.
Ranging from culinary journeys to active adventures, these immersive experiences capture the essence of summer in Abu Dhabi, giving guests the opportunity to connect and discover new passions and experiences.
Carefully curated to immerse guests in the unique spirit and natural beauty of the UAE, Rosewood Hotel Abu Dhabi’s bespoke activities fall under distinctive pillars, including the bespoke ‘Beverage Series’. Based on the Summer Immersive pillar of ‘Flavour’, each experience in the Beverage Series featuring beverages infused with in-season and variety of herbs, flowers and spices.
Roland Duerr, Managing Director of Rosewood Abu Dhabi, said: “This year, we have decided to focus on all the incredible beverage journeys that we have within our property, and our expert sommeliers and mixologists have created three totally unique and unforgettable experiences that I’m sure every one of our guests will love. As well as providing the perfect way to learn new skills and gain a deeper understanding and knowledge of beverages and mixology, they are also really engaging and enjoyable sessions that are guaranteed to be full of special and memorable moments. From the finest grapes to homemade infusions set against spectacular sunsets over the sparkling Arabian Gulf and in unique spaces, all kinds of enrapturing surprises await guests at the Rosewood Hotel Abu Dhabi this season.”
Each of Rosewood Hotel Abu Dhabi’s Summer Immerse activities consists of both on-and-off-property options, giving guests the flexibility to add something extra to any length of stay, whether that be a long summer sojourn or a quick weekend getaway. The Summer Immerse journeys dive beneath the surface to go beyond typical summer activities and well-known destination offerings, and instead offer guests the opportunities to truly get lost in their surroundings— exploring local culture through the specific lens of each pillar.
Available from today through September 6, the available activities at Rosewood Hotel Abu Dhabi include the Art of Mixology, Grape Appreciation and Gin Infusions, with each signature experience based on the pillar of Immerse in Flavour. Meanwhile, guests can also look forward to further exciting summer programmes being rolled out throughout the Summer Immerse campaign, with interactive and unique experiences from the pillars of Wellness and Culture planned for the near future.
The unique Summer Immerse offerings from Rosewood Hotel Abu Dhabi are featured alongside experiences from 28 additional Rosewood properties located worldwide across some of best luxury vacation destinations.
