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 eight venues created to let you wine and dine your nights away together).

This hotel was lovely and quiet. A few niggles with housekeeping. No beach staff the first day, but after speaking with Jackie, she resolved it. After that we had full attention. Particularly Aziz, Rohit, Raj and Precious. Even the dolphins came to say hello! We feel that we were classed as second class when locals were around.
