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).

Myself and my besties had the most amazing weekend getaway, all our thanks and appreciation for all the staff but mostly for Mr Jamil , who made sure that our stay was memorable. From the room breath taking views to the restaurant and pool service everything was on point. We will definitely be back for some more adventure.

Thank you Jumeirah Saadiyat Hotel for this amazing birthday weekend. I want to thank you to all the staff for the attention to the details, always being there to help and to the GM that he made time to greet us! It was beyond expectations the whole experience, i loved the idea that they are plastic free, and you have water stations where you can fill your bottles with still or even sparkling water, that they thinking about the planet and saving turtles. Every spot around the resort is like a post card where the ocean is turquoise and you can see dolphins jumping, where the sand is white and makes you feel you are on an exotic island. The food is very delicious, you can find different cousins from sea food to italian, arabic etc They have separate area for families with small children and for singles, it’s a place where everyone can enjoy! The SPA is very big and has a log of facilities , highly recommended ( has even a salt room and a huge jacuzzi). And if all this didn t convinced you they have a lot of amazing free activities for adults and kids that will blow your mind. The place where i will always return, a hidden paradise. Eliza Read less

Really impressed by this hotel - Jumeirah Group is always consistent, from the design of the hotel to the service, the staff and attention to details. Special mention to Mare Mare restaurant for really good Italian food. However, there is always room for improvement and here are our suggestions: - Floor at the pool and from the pool to the beach is way too slippery and dangerous, this should be fixed - Toilets specific for the pool area without entering White restaurant / AC while wet from the pool should be considered - There aren’t enough sun-beds around the pool / should be adapted with the capacity of the hotel occupancy - AC in the room is too noisy - Quality of food (fruits / eggs - organic?/crepes? etc.) could be better - Showers (that can be used next to Mare Mare after checking out of the room if you want to enjoy the rest of the day) are overflowing with water - other arrangement to be considered Read less
