The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, Saadiyat Island, Abu Dhabi
Already the choice of those in the know, The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort is a real show-stopper and an ideal pick for anyone who likes to mix their glitz and glamour with some serious R&R.
Just off the coast of Abu Dhabi, The St. Regis is far enough from the Emirate’s bustling heart, but close enough to dip in and out of its attractions whenever the mood takes you.
As you’d expect, accommodation choices are plentiful, with sunny balconies or terraces, cool, pale décor emboldened by flashes of jewel-like colour, super-luxe bathrooms, and legendary St. Regis Butler service.
Folks looking to do little more than indulge will also find plenty of opportunities here, thanks to the pristine white-sand beach, four swimming pools, soothing Iridium Spa and epic cocktail and dining choices.
Kids will be captivated by the fun of the Sandcastle Kids' Club; golf fanatics will be kept entertained at the adjacent Saadiyat Beach Golf Club with its par 72, 18-hole, Gary Player-designed course; while divers will be equally seduced by the staggering marine life. And even if you don’t dive, keep your eyes peeled for Bottlenose Dolphins, often seen playing just off the shoreline.
