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).

We spent 3 days at this hotel and were impressed with the professional level of service of ALL staff, from the front desk to the beach and restaurant staff and even the cleaning personnel. All were not only very good at their job, but also very much customer oriented and always very attentive to our needs. More specifically, Maricar, at the reception made a huge difference. She litterally walked the extra mile to find us a good transportation to the Dubai airport (we had many luggage as we were leaving the country) and helped us with a late checkout as we were leaving later in the day. The room itself was very comfortable, cllean and spacious. Although the number of restaurant was limited, they all offered excellent food and service. The main feature, however, is the fantastic location, with a beautiful and huge beach as well as a number of swimming pools for adults, families and children. Read less

It was an awful experience for such a big name. I arrived 10 mins before check-in and I was asked to wait, however two guests came after me but were served before me. I talked to the receptionist and told her that it was unfair as I came before them and she was rude to me!!! I checked-in 1 hour and 30 mins late, no one even called to apologize.… Read more

No social distancing measures were followed, some guests were’t putting their masks! It was horrible. Read less

Had a very good time in the hotel, the service from Supun @ pool bar, Evone @ white, Marga @ tean and Pankaj @ Mare Mare was outstanding. My wife and I felt welcome and well served all the time, I can recommend this place to everyone who needs a long or short getaway.

Hotel is quite huge and very spacious with a large beach area. One of the best beaches in the UAE (very clean with white sand). We booked the garden villa with a private pool and it was amazing and luxurious , after that we moved to a suite in the hotel and jt was also spectacular, the ocean view is breathtaking. Upon arrival, we faced some issues and were unpleased with a few things but they were solved at an instant, thanks to Shawn, we were very impressed with his service and how nicely he treated us. Sending my best regards to Shawn as he made our stay memorable and allowed us to leave as highly satisfied customers and we assured him that we were definitely coming back. All in all, very clean hotel with lovely rooms, clean beach, 3 different public pools, wide variety of food options and restaurants, and good precautionary measures are taken. Highly recommended.
