This will be the second Traders Hotel in the UAE and the third management agreement between Shangri-La and the Al Jaber Group following those of Shangri-La Hotel, Dubai and Shangri-La Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi.

The Qaryat Al Beri complex, which offers a wide variety of dining, retail and recreation, is 10 minutes from Abu Dhabi international airport, 15 minutes from the city centre, and five minutes' drive from the Abu Dhabi Golf Club and Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC).

Hotel dining choices will include an all-day-dining restaurant serving international cuisine,  a lobby lounge and a pool bar. 

Guests will be able to enjoy all restaurants and recreational facilities within the complex, accessible by club car or a short abra (Arabic gondola) ride on the waterway. These include an authentic Arabic souk (market), with informal waterfront dining and boutique shopping;  CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La; a health club; outdoor swimming pools; children's play area; and restaurants featuring Chinese, Vietnamese, French and international cuisines.

"We are very pleased to extend our successful partnership with the Al Jaber Group," said Madhu Rao, managing director and chief executive officer of Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts.   "We are grateful for the owner's vision to open a Traders Hotel and Shangri-La Hotel within the same project; these properties will complement each other while offering a distinct choice of accommodation options for travellers to the emirate."

"Our winning partnerships with Shangri-La give us complete confidence in the success of Traders Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi," said Obeid Al Jaber, Chairman of Al Jaber Group.
