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).

Being only a couple of days in Abu Dhabi, I chose with my two daughters Jumeiran at Saadiyat Island and we were very very pleased of this choice. Not only, we have visited all what we wanted in Abu Dhabi : The Louvre museulm, Mosque Cheikh Zaied, City center with Etihad Towers and the fabulous Emirates Palace, but we had also time to enjoy this great resort. What we liked the most: the design with a majestic entrance with a 180° view on sea, all rooms with sea view, cool ambiance, nice beaches and sand, spa with great therapists, excellent restaurants like the Tean or the italian Mare Mare with great very fresh fish food, a lounge on the top with a somptuous view specially at sunset, and last but not least very nice and gentle people who were always smiling and helpful like Brahim, Youssef and co. It was not only relaxing but a great moment I wish you all Read less

We met old friends at this new hotel as they were visiting from UK for a week, so good opportunity to catch up. Had a relaxed time and service was attentive although not perfect as they misunderstood a few items. Maybe because this was only opened in November and so they are quite new. It’s an Italian kitchen and Fausto the head waiter was very knowledgeable, so we ordered the 1 kg steak to share, which was done perfectly and was very tender. Their bread was delicious with good olive oil. However my wife ordered the “scampi” which was small, steamed langoustines (more tender he said). When they arrived they were indeed small (cost aed250) and only 4 so she really was not very pleased as they were tough. We know Abu Dhabi and cannot believe that this kitchen would serve these (imported maybe) when you can get amazing produce from the local fish market, so disappointed. The wine and desserts were very good though. Nice setting and seating. Read less

We visited Jumeirah with friends to relax, the Island is absolutely beautiful! Wonderful pools at the Hotel. When you get in an impresive lobby welcomes you. We visited all the outlets of the hotel and loved the food! Our checking was really welcoming and also to know they are enviromental friendly was a plus! We will be back for sure!

Surprisingly easy to arrive and depart from Abu Dhabi with all the automatic machines now, makes it more attractive destination over Dubai. Arrived at the airport and was picked up by the hotel driver. The drive was probably a bit longer from the airport than expected 30-40 mins. Saadiyat Island is very residential and was a surprise to find the new hotel in what is just a residential area. No real shops or anything like that close, have to go to Yas Mall or downtown. The hotel was only a month old from opening, everything is finished really well and the rooms are great, very spacious and everything you could wish for. We found the night lights quite annoying, any movement and they would come on even when lying in bed. The beach is really nice, very sandy and not a plastic one and there Saadiyat beach stretch is great for an early morning or late afternoon run. The is next to the beach club and that's about it nothing else there, so isolated and maybe guests may be surprised to be isolated from things. The staff though are just brilliant, everyone. Special thanks to Raju at the Pool and beach, Amal at White and Ranjeev too! The food at all restaurants, especially Whites which was the buffet in the evening just spectacular! worth the visit just for that. We would visit again for sure. Read less
