This was our second trip to this hotel in less than a year the last time was May 2019 we liked it so much we returned to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary. We had a wonderful week at the hotel only down side since our last trip they have started to charge a supplement for the restaurants other than the buffet we did not know this until we booked our restaurants. Our room was decorated with swans and rose petals sparkling wine fruit and cake was sent to our with compliments from the management. We found the food and drinks to be of a very high quality with lots of beers and top shelf spirits the list is to extensive to try and list but I don't think you would be disappointed. The hotel lobby is spectacular as you walk through the door you get the WOW factor, the inside of the hoteland grounds of the hotel are kept clean and tidy. All the staff are very good and can not do enough for you but I need to commend a few that went above and beyond with there service first off all our bar captain Jerby every time he sore us he would stop and talk and enquire how we where and if there was anything we would like service above and beyond what was required. Housekeeping was brilliant from swans to elephants on the bed very clever thanks Levy very artistic. On our first night we where spoilt in AJA the Asian restaurant by Selauk and his team. At lunch times we would either go to the buffet or The Peoples bar where Gaurav would look after us he also works in the Orient restaurant where his recommendations on what to eat was spot on. The guys and girls that work the pool bar where amazing Asanga working hard to keep everything stocked on the bar to Rohit how make the best Mojito and very good Jack Daniels and diet coke for me and Gin and slimline if he had slimline tonic for my wife. The team of skater waiters where amazing one in particulate was amazing on his skates it was brilliant entertainment watching him glide around the pool with a tray of drinks and not spilling a drop thank you Ahmet Sezen a very nice guy, keep up the good work look forward to our next trip when that might be we don't know yet.

I visited Rixos Premium Saadiyat with my parents in March 2020. I loved every single thing about the hotel: beautiful views, good fresh food, fun sport classes, clean beach with crystal clear water, nice music in the lobby and on the territory of the hotel and MAGIC atmosphere. I would love to express special thanks to the sports academy that the hotel provides. There are variety of fun classes for anyone and everyone. Amazing fitness team with great instructors : Nalin, Olga, Nikita, Yulia and Maryana. They are the best! I went to paddle boarding class, antigravoty yoga, water cycling, kangoo jump - all the classes are fun and unique. I travel a lot but never seen that variety of classes in the hotel. Definately will stay at this hotel again once I plan my next trip to Abu Dhabi. The hotel is amazing for families with kids and couples. You don't have to worry about abything when you are there. Just relax and enjoy your best vacation. Read less
