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).

The rooms are really nice too, but the resort is in Saadiyat, go there if you're planning a YAS weekend or if you want to disconnect. Saadiyat looks and feels like a different part of the world - truly beautiful. Read less

Stayed here for 5 nights at the end of August with my wife, her best friend and daughter....we had an overnight flight from the uk and arrived at the hotel about 8am. Check in was fast and efficient and were very pleased to hear that our rooms were ready ... we took advantage of breakfast before heading up to our room. Huge comfy bed, view of the pools and beach, walk-in rain shower, Nespresso machine, kettle.... the room was perfect. At night the air con worked perfectly and there was no outside noises. The choice of food for both breakfast and dinner at White Restaurant goes above and beyond... our most favourite was the eggs benedict for breakfast (we weren’t even sure it was on the menu!).....nothing was a problem for any of the staff, lids were lifted off to allow to view food, all staff had a friendly hello each time you saw them. Chinese, sushi, curry, fish,pasta, roasted meats, freshly cooked naan breads..... what a wide choice and all so beautifully presented and tasted devine The pool area is spotless as is the beach.... staff are on hand throughout the day, they greet you as you walk towards the pool area, ask where you would like to sit and lay your towels out for you...sand on the beach is soft and white, water in the sea was clear and so so warm... Yes ok, there were still some work being completed at the hotel...so what! They are only making this place even better than it already is.. and that to me is not a problem at all.... you can stay at any hotel in the world and there would be maintenance works being carried out or another hotel being built next door!! Thank you so much to all staff for making this a great stay for us.... we are already planning to return next year! Read less
