With strikingly contemporary architecture and interior design, The Fairmont Bab Al Bahr hotel in Abu Dhabi offers the highest level of comfort and elegance throughout its 369 guestrooms and suites. The combination of cutting edge design and a warm tradition of genuine Arabic hospitality is certain to exceed every guest’s highest expectations. Carpets for the hotel are supplied by ege.
The ability to offer unique design, whether it being from standard collections or as customised solutions, made ege a perfect partner for the Fairmont project. In addition, ege offers flexibility to adapt colours to specific elements of the interior. The design brief for the Fairmont hotel was clear: Create stunning carpet designs perfectly matching the ‘leaf and branch design concept’ of the hotel, which takes inspiration from the artwork on the hotel walls.
“Each type of hotel room has its own unique colour scheme and design outlay. Therefore, several different colour shades had to be made in order for the designs to fit the interior. Additionally, each design had to fit the room in custom made pieces”, General Manager at ege carpets middle east Shiraz Rizvi explains.
Apart from rooms and corridors, public areas such as meeting rooms, ballroom, restaurant and offices are all custom designed in different themes to match the modern but fantastic and flamboyant interior of the hotel.
“Fairmont Bab Al Bahr is a landmark hotel when it comes to interior design. The hotel stands out as a refreshingly unique and modern hotel property. It is without a doubt one of its kind in the city”, Shiraz Rizvi tells.
Carpets for corridor areas have taken inspiration from one of the standard designs from the ege NONO – No Noise Runners collection. To perfectly match the interior design of the hotel the design has been recoloured.

The interior design consultancy M/s. Interior Motives chose ege carpets as carpet supplier for the project, as the company believed that no other supplier, within such a short timeframe, would be able to do justice to the intricate and complex design requirements imposed for the design.
“Keeping to the deadlines of the hotel’s opening was extremely critical. To match the delivery time, most of the carpets were therefore air freighted. However, despite the short production time available, the carpets reached the hotel on time, making the project stick to the tight deadlines. The result was a satisfied and happy client”, Shiraz Rizvi tells.
All rooms are supplied with the Highline 80/20 1100 WT quality and corridors in the Highline 80/20 1400 WT quality. Carpets were installed over a double stick crumb rubber underlay to ensure high underfoot comfort.
