My friends and I have just had a fantastic staycation at the Rixos Saadiyat. The service has been amazing!!! The hotel organised some surprise birthday treats in the room one friend, and the restaurants went above and beyond for another friend who is vegan. Plenty of variety in the restaurants and not overly crowded. Special mention to Erelyn and Devorah in L'Olivo (Italian Restaurant) who delivered excellent service with information about the dishes and drinks...their attention to detail and friendliness was superb. The gym is open and very well equipped. Gloves and mask have to be worn (for now) but mask can be removed for strenuous activities. The beach is stunning - plenty of comfortable loungers in zones, so families away from the couples quiet zone etc. The beach bar is well stocked with great staff...the sea is lovely; calm in the morning, wavy in the afternoon...and the sunsets are incredible. We have had a excellent time and will definitely be back. Thank you so much to everyone at the Rixos Saadiyat Read less

She basically started our staycation on a very positive note which was then followed-up by Tej when he courteously escorted us to our room.  Our room was romantically arranged and Richard delighted us with a birthday cake and fruits for my birthday. It was indeed a wonderful birthday celebration and a right decision to spend this special occasion in this prime property.  Thank you very much Rixos! Read less
