Safety and security is vitally important when choosing a city to visit, or live and work in. The UAE’s capital, Abu Dhabi has been repeatedly voted the safest city in the world. Combined with a rich culture, meaningful experiences, and everything the modern traveler requires, the “Land of the Gazelle” has grown to become one of the world’s most exciting destinations.
Director of Security Mourad Kader reinforces this prestigious reputation as a safe city through consistent dialogue with local authorities. “It requires continuous effort and dedication from the security team and all of our employees to ensure Four Seasons Hotel Abu Dhabi at Al Maryah Island is safe and secure for our guests. We are constantly collaborating with the capital’s local authorities to align with the most recent international safety regulations.”
This was reflected by the property’s recognition in 2018 from the Ministry of Interior as the safest hotel in Abu Dhabi. Kader was the only Director of Security to receive this distinguished honor in 11 years. “It was a huge moment of pride for us, as I know how much effort the team puts towards enhancing the guest experience and making them feel at home. From training employees on the latest fire safety or CPR standards, to planning for New Year’s Eve celebrations with the authorities of Al Maryah Island, everything is carefully considered to give our guests peace of mind.”
Four Seasons has a long-standing reputation for its ability to take the utmost care of VIPs and host globally recognized events. Kader says, “We are no stranger to working with the world’s top VIPs, ensuring every detail of their stay from arrival to departure is looked after, and they are able to switch off, relax, and enjoy their Abu Dhabi experience to the fullest.”
