ABU DHABI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES--(Marketwired - Sep 24, 2014) - Abu Dhabi's leading provider of luxury lifestyle experiences, The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal has further strengthened its appeal to long-term guests with the launch of Take Charge initiative. Spearheaded by Abu Dhabi resort's executive chef David Gache, the new wellbeing and lifestyle management programme will be integrated into the residential living experience providing long-stay guests with a personalized holistic meal plan based around their dietary requirements and available in all eight dining venues within the luxury Abu Dhabi resort.

Director of Sales and Marketing for The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Dilip Mukundan believes that the appeal of the Take Charge initiative lies in its ability to promote positive lifestyle change through a streamlined and structured approach:

"Owing to the aspirational address and central location of The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, we have seen robust interest from Abu Dhabi-based corporate patrons who often struggle finding a sustainable balance between a healthy lifestyle and work commitments. Combined with extensive fitness facilities that include a 24-hour health club with qualified personal instructors, a sprawling outdoor swimming pool and multiple jogging tracks, the personalized dining plan offered by the Take Charge is ultimately a solution enabling the busy executives to take control of their lives."

Set amidst beautifully landscaped gardens minutes away from Al Bateen Executive Airport and featuring fully furnished one- and two-bedroom villas, the beachfront Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi is inspired by the 15th to early 17th century Renaissance architecture and the urban planning of the city of Venice completed with artfully designed water features throughout the 57 acre property. For more information about residential living, please email reservations.abudhabi@ritzcarlton.com or call +971 2 818 8181.
