Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort

Abu Dhabi, Middle East

The hotel

Fresh on the Abu Dhabi hotel circuit, this sparkling new Jumeirah outpost sits on arguably the best stretch of sand on Saadiyat Island, a unique eco-destination which balances luxury with sustainability. It’s easy to see why they’re keen to preserve this beautiful patch of the UAE, with its nesting turtles, visiting dolphins, and twisting mangroves creating a refreshingly unspoilt holiday setting for thoughtful travellers. But, being in tune with initiatives like using reusable water bottles, doesn’t equal missing out on today’s luxuries – and Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort comes with an over-the-top menu of infinity pools (we count three), spa treatments (which are taken in a space with a sumptuous Moroccan hammam twist), and plentiful bars and restaurants (with seven venues created to let you wine and dine your nights away together).

This is without a doubt one of our best hotel resorts we stayed at. Service with a smile and friendly staff comes as standard. Attention to detail is on another level.

Beautiful beach and well maintained hotel, but be ready to wait on services. Long check-in procedure, long queues for omelettes, long waiting to get a drink at the beach / pool area. Despite all that, relaxing at the gorgeous beach makes up for it. Bring your own extension cable for the hair dryer! :)

The exterior isn't exactly our cup of tea but the interior is beautiful. The property's greatest asset, however, is its staff.

The exterior isn't exactly our cup of tea but the interior is beautiful. The property's greatest asset, however, is its staff. Every single person we came in contact with, from the cleaners to the concierge and everyone in between, was kind, thoughtful, and eager to make sure our stay was the best it could be. The room is a good size with a balcony and nice seating to enjoy the view. The bathroom is lovely, a good size, and well thought out. Glass bottled water in the rooms, the a/c has an auto shut off when the sliding glass doors open. The food at the outlets is fantastic. My only complaint is the pillows. While I'm sure they're top of the line, they were really uncomfortable: very flat with no support. A wonderful experience. Read less
