Situated on an eco-protected natural island, The St. Regis Saadiyat Island, Abu Dhabi is a haven for nature lovers and sanctuary seekers
The Rooms & Suites
A private terrace with views out over the resort and glistening Arabian Gulf is the first marker of what promises to be a soul-affirming stay. The 376 guestrooms immediately imbue a sense of the natural beauty of the surroundings with a calming palette of cool neutrals, vivid green and turquoise accents. Channel John Jacob Astor IV vibes in an eponymous king-bedded sea view suite that the original St. Regis founder would surely have approved.
Seven of the city’s best dining destinations are housed within this sprawling luxury resort including contemporary Greek restaurant, MAZI Abu Dhabi. Olea’s offering is all about Mediterranean coastal flavours or, for a journey around southeast Asia, Sontaya ticks all the boxes. Iconic Buddha-Bar Beach Abu Dhabi riffs on Pacific-Rim cuisine with ubiquitous live DJ entertainment adding to the vibe. A more traditional affair, afternoon tea at The Drawing Room is a signature St. Regis ritual.
Golfers have Saadiyat Beach Golf Club on the doorstep while The St. Regis Athletic Club has endless options from squash courts and beach volleyball to four outdoor pools. Younger guests will love the activities at Sandcastle Club and the natural world is just minutes away with the resort home to indigenous wild gazelles, Hawksbill turtles and occasional dolphin pods. Look inwards at the award-winning spa where the popular Holistic Time Ritual is just one way to reconnect with your best self.
